Summary
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.

Skillshare logoSkillshare

Skillshare offers a large catalog of courses on both career and hobby-related topics. We particularly like that you can get access to every course on the platform with just one, affordable subscription. You can also book one-on-one sessions with instructors, which is a bit pricey, but a super unique offering that no other online learning platform currently offers. We can therefore recommend Skillshare to anyone trying to learn digital & creative skills, especially if a subscription sounds better than buying individual courses.
