The primary reason to launch a successful project like the MasterClass was to inspire people to pursue their dreams regardless of the prejudices weighing them down. Educational institutions are run based on several different principles and are meant to follow a certain selection process that focuses people to comply in order to climb the ladder. However, MasterClass gives you access to learning from the most respected individuals in a distinct field. For example, Bobbi Brown teaches make-up and beauty, or Gordon Ramsay teaching the culinary arts, etc.

Yet another platform that gives one access to an online community of like-minded learners to continue gaining knowledge from industry leaders and working professionals. They offer a wide range of courses that can aid in skill development and an added bonus to previously received understanding.

One of my personal favourites, Home Ec 365 has been introduced by the world-renowned Whole Foods Market. They break down the cooking process into simpler and easier steps for their students to follow. Furthermore, they focus not only on the art of cooking a delicious meal but also tasks such as cleaning kitchens, sharing proper ways to maintain kitchenware, maximum utilization of ingredients, most importantly- formulating a budget for grocery shopping!
