Summary
Educative logoEducative

Educative focuses on teaching tech skills to its students. We like that in addition to their courses, they provide tools like their CloudLabs, which allow students to learn about cloud infrastructure, without having to create their own cloud accounts. Another thing that makes their platform unique is their focus on text over video. This means, if you prefer reading to watching videos, and you want to learn new tech skills, Educative might be right for you.

GetSmarter logoGetSmarter

getsmarter offers a selection of high quality courses, in collaboration with some of the most prestigious universities worldwide. We particularly like the impressive roster of partners they work with. If you want to take their courses, you shouldn't be on a tight budget though, since the prices are fairly steep, which is understandable when you look at their partner universities, but nevertheless might be unaffordable for many. We therefore recommend getsmarter to professionals that want to learn new skills, and that have the disposable budget to afford their courses.
