Summary
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.

Treehouse logoTreehouse

Treehouse focuses on tech skills, with both their course subscription and Techdegree programs including access to their library of courses. We like that you can choose between the cheaper, self-service subscription or the more expensive Techdegree programs which come with learning support and a more tailored learning experience. Overall, their course offering isn't as extensive as that of some of their competitors, so if you're looking for more niche courses you might not find them on Treehouse.
