Kadenze: the "Coursera" for creative professionals

While searching for Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) the other day, I got a pleasant surprise when I came across Kadenze.

According to its website, Kadenze is a MOOC provider that is geared towards Technology and the Arts. What's more interesting (to me at least) is that Kadenze offers a module on Deep Learning. Apart from Udacity's offering on Deep Learning, I know not of any other MOOC providers who offer courses delving into said subject. There are other courses on machine learning and data mining as well, just that it is contextualized to the arts field.

Soooooooo, what MOOC providers do we have now?

Coursera for all-purpose learning?

EdX for first runner-up to Coursera?

Udacity for hands-on tech education

FutureLearn from Open University

Khan Academy to build one's foundation?

Microsoft Professional Program

Udemy for bei kambings to part with their money when they can take similar courses for free from other MOOC providers

And last but not least, there's Kadenze.


  1. Hi UN

    I think I've heard about Coursera offering courses for free. Is Kadenze offering courses online for free as well or we have to pay a certain fee for the module?

    1. Hi B,

      Yup. Like Coursera, it is free. There is also a paid option for those who are interested in getting a "certificate."
