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.

Yes Chef logoYes Chef

YesChef offers a couple of high quality cooking classes with some of the world's most well-known chefs. We like that the courses have a super high production value, and the subscription they offer is fairly cheap. That said, their course catalog isn't very big yet, which means you might be able to go through all the courses they have to offer in a rather short amount of time. Therefore, we recommend YesChef if you want to watch the courses created by the chefs featured on their platform in particular. If you want a more extensive course catalog, there might be better alternatives available.
