TWelcome to this episode in our series of Course Wars! We put the world's most popular online course websites to the test and compare them to help you decide on which one is worth your time, effort and money. In this post we'll be pitting Skillshare vs Lynda and putting both of them to the test to see which one wins on terms of features, price and quality. Let's get started!
|Course Provider||Cost||Variety Of Courses||Certificate Upon Completion||Quality Of Content|
|Lynda||$29.99/Month||6/10||Yes! And they integrate with Linkedin||8/10|
Lynda (or Linkedin Learning) does certificates that you can earn and show off on your LinkedIn profile upon completion. These are acknowledged by some companies. There are over 10,000 courses on Lynda to choose from. There are courses on Business, Creative and Technology.
Lynda is however, quite a bit more expensive than Skillshare. In the battle of Lynda vs Skillshare on pricing, Skillshare definitely wins. Lynda costs $29.99 per month or $299.88 if purchased for the entire year (this is before taxes).
It's definitely the more expensive option, but it does have it's benefits.
Lynda like Skillshare does offer a free trial, but only for a period of 1 month. We recommend signing up to both platforms free trials and seeing for yourself which is better suited to your needs!
Well, it was a tough battle! Both have unique features and they both hold their own, but Skillshare has the best value for money and if your deserved courses are available on there, we recommend you give their free trial a go and test them out first.
