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.

LinkedIn Learning logoLinkedIn Learning

LinkedIn Learning is one of the largest online learning platforms, which can offer a lot of benefits that we like through the direct integration into the LinkedIn platform, like LinkedIn Premium access, as well as the direct integration of certificates from LinkedIn Learning into your LinkedIn profile. The instructors on LinkedIn Learning are highly qualified, and the courses cover all relevant career-focussed skills, which is why we can particularly recommend LinkedIn Learning for young professionals trying to upskill.
