Do you want to learn a new skill or make a shift in your career? Learning apps are the solution.

Lifelong learning is not a fad. With the emergence of search engines more than a decade ago, information has never been easier to accumulate.

Learning apps have quickly become a go-to method of enhancing or accruing skills for students and professionals alike. While college degrees are still seen as high-priority accomplishments in the workplace today, people are becoming increasingly warm to the idea of building skills on the side as an acceptable replacement for a diploma.

With so many credible resources available to jump start a new part of your career, what are you waiting for?

If you’re looking to gain a new skill or improve upon one in which you’re already invested, this exclusive list of the very best learning apps can help you learn more effectively and reach new heights in your career.

1. Lynda

The current king (or queen) of learning apps is Lynda. Owned by technology super-power Microsoft, this platform boasts a wide array of courses not available anywhere else.

Lynda was founded in 1995 by a digital arts master named, you guessed it, Lynda Weinman.

The top skills you can begin accruing on the site include:

  • Software development
  • Web development
  • Photography
  • Business
  • Design

2. LinkedIn Learning

The professional network has made a massive push toward educating its dedicated users. LinkedIn Learning is their platform to promote positive growth and learning in your career.

While LinkedIn is also owned by Microsoft, there are key difference between Lynda and LinkedIn Learning. The largest differentiator between these platforms is that LinkedIn Learning comes as a package deal with your LinkedIn Premium subscription.

This is highly beneficial to those who are already serious enough about their online career development that they hold a monthly membership to Premium.

The library here is incredibly vast, spanning from Business to Creative and Technology skills.

Available for iOS | Android | Web

Pricing: LinkedIn Learning is completely free with a LinkedIn premium subscription, starting at $30.

3. Udemy

Not the monthly membership type? This one may be just right for you.

Many career-oriented individuals want to improve their skills and habits, but the reality is that workdays typically require most of their time.
