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.

Skillshare logoSkillshare

Skillshare offers a large catalog of courses on both career and hobby-related topics. We particularly like that you can get access to every course on the platform with just one, affordable subscription. You can also book one-on-one sessions with instructors, which is a bit pricey, but a super unique offering that no other online learning platform currently offers. We can therefore recommend Skillshare to anyone trying to learn digital & creative skills, especially if a subscription sounds better than buying individual courses.
