With the growth in access of internet users, e-learning has been most popular in todays market. You can get access to lots of courses online, free or paid, helping you to learn from anywhere, anytime as long as you’ve got an internet connection.
Most of us must be familiar with any of the popular outsourcing marketplace such as freelancer.com, odesk.com, elance.com,etc.. where employers and employees are able to find each other starting from employers posting a job following with anybody inside its platform to offer a quote to complete the job.
Similar to this concept, another marketplace which is getting much popular these days is Udemy — which infers “The Academy of You”. Udemy is the marketplace for teaching and learning. Unlike academic MOOC(Massive Open Online Course) programs driven by traditional collegiate coursework, Udemy provides a platform for experts of any kind to create courses which can be offered to the public, either at no charge or for a tuition fee. Also, Udemy provides tools which enable users to create a course, promote it and earn money from student tuition charges.
Udemy courses ranges from programming, entrepreneurship, photography, yoga, marketing, sales, cooking, design… infact everything. Thousands of expert instructors have already published online courses on Udemy for different categories. Currently no Udemy courses are credentialed for college credit, students take courses largely as a means of improving job-related skills. Some courses generate credit toward technical certification. Udemy has made a special effort to attract corporate trainers seeking to create coursework for employees of their company.
Millions of students in 190+ countries have already enrolled to one or more courses at Udemy. Every course on Udemy is available on demand, 24/7, so you can learn when and where you want via the iPhone, iPad, Android and Web. Moreover, recent features allow you to save your courses for offline viewing so you can watch them while you’re on a plane or subway. Also, the playback feature at different speeds for quickly refreshing your mind seem to be an addition.
Organizations also use Udemy for Organizations (UFO), a corporate online learning platform, that provides training solutions to thousands of companies. On the whole, as it seems, Udemy already had its place safe on the world’s largest marketplace for online learning.
