Udemy is a website that empowers anyone to teach and learn online. On Udemy, there are thousands of online courses from the best instructors in the world. Furthermore, if you're an expert you can share your knowledge by creating an online course on Udemy.
Udemy's platform makes it easy for experts to build an online course. Instructors can use video, PowerPoint, PDFs, audio, zip files and live classes to quickly build a course and share their expertise with anyone in the world with an internet connection.
Courses on Udemy are usually multi-part, meaning there are many lessons within one course. Udemy instructors get to choose what format(s) they want to teach with - but most courses include a mix of video, audio, presentations and documents. You can take courses across a great breadth of categories, including: business & entrepreneurship, academics, the arts, health & fitness, language, music, technology, games, and more.
The majority of courses on Udemy are free, but some are paid. Instructors choose the price of their course, so prices often vary greatly depending on subject, instructor and the depth of the content.
Definitely! If you have an internet connection, courses on Udemy are available on any device at any time. If you don't have an internet connection, some instructors also let their students download course lectures. That's up to the instructor though, so make sure you get on their good side!
Unless it is noted on the course page, accessible material is not currently provided for that course. Udemy is aware that accessibility is a much needed feature in order to allow all users access to the great learning material on our site. We do have plans to add accessibility features to Udemy courses in the future. For questions about a specific course, you can write to the instructor, and you can always contact support for additional help.
Once subscribed to a course, you have access to all course materials indefinitely, like an on-demand channel!
