Learn-C.org provides interactive tutorials to guide the user through learning C. The site includes embedded C windows to input code and preview the output the code produces, and it doesn't require the installation of a C compiler on the local machine. This layout lets users easily move between the printed lessons and the code they are working on without switching between windows. The site also takes the user through several lessons, moving from simple lessons on topics such as variables and loops to more complex tasks, such as recursion and function generation.

LearnCOnline.com similarly uses embedded programming windows but provides separate windows for each lesson. The lessons are presented in a blog format, with descriptions of how to solve a particular programming problem in C.

The for-pay course offered by Udemy does not provide an in-browser window; instead, the user must install a compiler and code editor on the local machine. However, Udemy provides detailed descriptions of differences in C programming when using different operating systems, which may be useful for learners who switch between systems or want to generate cross-platform code.
