Of course, Skillshare isn’t the only website where you can take online courses. One of Skillshare’s main competitors is Master class, which features classes taught by celebrity experts like Christina Aguilera, Gordon Ramsay, Kris Jenner, Richard Branson, Melinda French Gates, and even President George W. Bush. MasterClass only offers an annual subscription (via Course reviewers), which is split into three tiers – Individual ($180), Duo ($240), and Family ($276).
If you’re looking to get a certificate or even a diploma from online courses, then sites like edX and Coursera are the ones to look for. edX offers courses from more than 160 universities like the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Harvard, Boston, and Berkeley, among others. There is no membership fee for edX, but if you want to earn a certificate or have graded assignments, you must pay for an individual course. These can vary between $50 and $300 per edX support page.
Coursera also offers free courses, but if you want to earn a diploma or certificate, you will need to subscribe to the service. Like edX, Coursera is in partnership with more than 275 universities worldwide and major companies like Google and IBM. A monthly subscription costs $59, while an annual subscription costs $399 (via Coursera support page).
