Over the last couple of months, we’ve seen it clearly that e-learning is incredibly important. Whether you’re a full-time student keeping up with academics or you’re just a guy looking to improve yourself, hopping onto any of the best learning platforms is definitely a good idea.

However, in an ocean of information, much like today’s internet, it is almost impossible to know which ones are truly the best learning platforms. For that reason, we’ve specially compiled a list for you. Here are the top learning sites and apps for students and professionals alike:

  1. LinkedIn Learn

Some time ago, we told you about LinkedIn and what it can do for your career. (Click here to see what we mean.) As such, you probably already know that LinkedIn is an excellent networking platform. However, something that might be news to you is that LinkedIn acquired “Lynda,” one of the oldest e-learning platforms. Afterward, it transferred all its content to the LinkedIn e-learning site. Due to this coagulation of content, LinkedIn now has one of the biggest libraries of beginner to professional level courses for students and professionals.

  1. SkillShare

This is another site that’s worthy of its position on our list of e-learning platforms. This particular one is a huge library of more than 20,000 classes tailored toward the needs of different individuals. If you’re looking for a place to learn, you’ve definitely hit the jackpot with this one.

  1. MasterClass

The name might not exactly give it away immediately. But, do you know what makes this learning platform particularly impressive? It’s that you’re taught directly by masters across different fields. With their wealth of knowledge, you’re not likely to go the wrong way in your pursuit of knowledge. Okay, maybe the name does give it away a little bit.

  1. Udemy

This one is particularly popular, especially in Nigeria. With more than 150,000 courses just waiting to be taken, it’s hardly possible that you won’t find what you’re looking for.

  1. EDX

If we’re honest, this platform is in another class of its own. Others might give you regular knowledge about regular things while awarding relatively valuable certificates. However, EDX offers you courses that are on par with what you’ll get at the university. Some of these courses even fetch degrees.

  1. Udacity

The unique selling point of Udacity is its nanodegree. A nanodegree is a program that consists of skills/project-based learning. Each nanodegree has different courses in many fields, from Artificial Intelligence to Robotics, among others.

Final Words

Much like Monday’s final words, today’s final words are solemn. It has nothing to do with e-learning, but e-learning is the least of your worries when you’re constantly scared for your safety. These final words are in remembrance of those who lost their lives in Nigeria yesterday. While we may not know all their names, we acknowledge the fact that they died as brave men and women in the fight for their country’s greatness. May we never witness such tragedies again and may their souls rest in perfect peace.
