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.

Pluralsight logoPluralsight

Pluralsight is one of the online learning platform with a clear focus on helping companies upskill their employees with tech skills. While they do offer their course catalog to consumers as well, many of their main strengths come into play with enterprise customers. We particularly like their extensive library of courses, with a lot of them focussing on very specific technical topics that other platforms might not even have resources for. That means that Pluralsight is a great platform for companies looking to upskill employees and more advanced techies trying to learn new skills. As a beginner, you might be a bit overwhelmed on Pluralsight.
