Udemy offers courses ranging from free to costing hundreds of dollars on just about any topic you could imagine. Course topics include coding for kids, coding for beginners, web design, WordPress, Javascript development, iOS development and more.

Courses are divided into lectures and sections that can be viewed in a range of formats including, video, audio, text and slideshow presentations. The user dashboard experience features a sidebar for easy access to discussion threads and course-specific materials.

The Udemy catalogue is sweeping and offers courses far beyond coding and programming with more than 25,000 courses in more than 15 languages. Reviews are available for every course, allowing users to make informed decisions before they purchase. Customer service is highly rated. And if corporate training is what you’re looking for, Udemy offers group discounts.

Additionally, Udemy allows users to create their own courses using a specialized set of development tools for which income can be earned if it becomes a success.

Team Treehouse

Team Treehouse has one of the most extensive catalogues of courses and is really great at staying up to date and relevant in its offerings. Treehouse is very hands on and is one of the only online learning websites that offers an iPad app that allows users to continue learning wherever they are.

Courses featured on Treehouse very often come with the ‘workspaces’ feature which allows users to put the coding they’ve learned to practical use, effectively allowing them to see just how their coding holds up in a real-world environment.

In addition to being hands on, Treehouse offers users an extensive library of talks from industry professionals.

Signing up is easy and new users get a two-week free trial. After that, users choose between the basic and pro plan, $25/month and $49/month, respectively.
