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.

Udacity logoUdacity

Udacity offers a variety of learning programs designed to help students acquire relevant tech skills. We particularly like the amount of support students receive, with project reviews and direct access to subject-matter experts. This however comes at a price, so Udacity might not be best suited for students looking to learn on a budget, but if good learning support is important to you and budget is not your biggest concern, Udacity might be the perfect place for you to learn some new tech skills.
