Summary
Khan Academy logoKhan Academy

Khan Academy has a great catalog of completely free courses on Math, Science and other academic topics. The best part is that everything is available absolutely for free, and that their offering is pretty extensive, with course in a variety of different languages. They do however focus mainly on fundamental academic skills, rather than concrete career-relevant topics. Also, you shouldn't expect to get much learning support when learning on KhanAcademy, since this is something they can't deliver as a non-profit reliant on donations. Overall, KhanAcademy is a great place to learn about Math, Science and a lot more completely for free.

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.
