Have you heard about Udemy yet?
No? Well, why the hell not?!
What Is Udemy?
Udemy is an online learning resource that offers a wide range of video courses for people in every industry or stage in their life. Whether you’re looking to learn the basics of graphic design or want to learn first aid for pets, you’re covered.
Why Is It Different?
While it can be compared to Lynda.com in pure function, Udemy is a better option for those of us that don’t necessarily consume a course in the regular fashion.
Lynda.com offers a monthly membership fee for access to an unlimited amount of course videos. While Udemy takes a different stance by offering their course library with a varied pricing structure that comes directly from the instructor. Plus, there are several FREE courses on Udemy! Who doesn’t love free?!
Their tagline is the “Academy of You”, and that statement could not be any more true for Udemy. Their focus is to provide you with the information that you want and need, on your own terms. You’ll never have to worry about rushing through a course just to finish it before your subscription runs out. Plus, most of the courses include downloadable worksheets to help you absorb the information that you’re learning.
Why Should Udemy Matter to a Business Owner?
Whether you’re new to the game or a long-time business owner, you can find great value in Udemy.
If you love learning and keeping up with the times, Udemy is an AWESOME resource for continuing your learning process. Udemy offers a huge library of unique, and well-thought-out video courses that range from entrepreneurship to pet care. We’ve worked through several courses, which we will break down and review for you in our upcoming ProfessorU blog series!
