1. Coursera

  • Earn Specialization and course certificates… or even an accredited online master’s degree

Coursera has a lot to offer, and you can usually do it for free by “auditing” a class or watching lectures without enrolling. Free offerings, on the other hand, can be buried; the option to acquire certificates through self-paced Specialization bundles with a range of monthly costs is considerably more obvious.

The most friendly learn-to-code tool we’ve encountered starts with a delightfully bright, straightforward design. The content is written in a conversational style to help you understand the principles (not just memorize actions). While some courses are free, most need a subscription or the creation of projects from the beginning. Keep in mind that some questions have more than one answer!

Udemy allows anyone to teach, so you may discover courses on practically any subject. It also means that the homepage might be confusing, and there is no consistent quality standard (which varies widely). Free sample videos and a variety of course reviews, on the other hand, should guide you in the proper route.
