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.

Maven logoMaven

With their approach of cohort-based courses, Maven is trying to shake up the digital education market. We like that they back their approach on research about effective learning, trying to create a learning experience that produces the best outcomes for students. Their courses are also typically taught by experienced practitioners, ensuring a high course quality. Overall, we recommend Maven for professionals that want to step up their game on a specific topic, if budget isn't the biggest concern. On Maven, you pay a little bit extra for the convenience of direct access to your instructors and a more effective, cohort-based experience. Students with limited budget might be better off going with other platforms.
