Summary
MasterClass logoMasterClass

MasterClass has amongst the highest production quality of all online learning platforms. We like their concept of creating courses with world-renowned experts in their respective fields and combining this with awesome production value. With this high quality bar, it's clear why MasterClass doesn't have the most extensive course catalog. They focus on quality over quantity and offer courses on all kinds of topics, both career-related and recreational. Overall, we recommend MasterClass for students that enjoy watching courses from their favorite athletes, musicians and chefs and that appreciate the amount of effort MasterClass puts into producing these classes. Students looking for courses to advance their career might find a better offering elsewhere.

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.
