Summary
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.

Mindvalley logoMindvalley

Mindvalley offers a unique collection of courses on spirituality, mindfulness and health, created with popular figures from the space. We like that the courses have a consistently high quality and come in easily digestible bite-sized formats. Overall, we recommend Mindvalley for students that want "life advice" and courses that are inspirational, rather than just practical. If you're looking to acquire more concrete skills, other platforms might be better suited for you.
