Screen Shot 2015-08-17 at 12.50.51

Hi there!  I’ve been writing regularly about elearning more more than a year now and realised it might be handy to have a list of elearning platforms with a little about each.

Feel free to add to this list in a comment below, or let me know your thoughts about any of these!  In no particular order yet, but as the list grows, I will perhaps organise it into elearning platforms most suitable for those learning, those who want to teach, small business and corporate.

This is a working list, mostly with their own taglines.  I will also add in comments on each as I experience them.

Elearning (Online Learning) Complete List (so far!):

  • FutureLearn: Free online courses from top universities and specialist organisations
  • Udemy: over 7 million students and 30,000 courses on a very wide range of topics
  • Skillshare: Learn real world practical skills
  • CreativeLive:  Free live online creative classes
