Summary
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.

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.
