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.

Udacity logoUdacity

Udacity offers a variety of learning programs designed to help students acquire relevant tech skills. We particularly like the amount of support students receive, with project reviews and direct access to subject-matter experts. This however comes at a price, so Udacity might not be best suited for students looking to learn on a budget, but if good learning support is important to you and budget is not your biggest concern, Udacity might be the perfect place for you to learn some new tech skills.
