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.

Treehouse logoTreehouse

Treehouse focuses on tech skills, with both their course subscription and Techdegree programs including access to their library of courses. We like that you can choose between the cheaper, self-service subscription or the more expensive Techdegree programs which come with learning support and a more tailored learning experience. Overall, their course offering isn't as extensive as that of some of their competitors, so if you're looking for more niche courses you might not find them on Treehouse.
