Has anyone ever heard of Udemy? Since L is for Learn, I thought I’d tell you a little about this online learning community. Udemy offers thousands of classes priced between $20 and $50. Some are even FREE. I discovered Udemy on Facebook. An ad kept popping up so I finally clicked on it. By now, you might know that I’m a “course-taking-addict.”
I’ve taken several writing courses from Udemy: poetry writing, brainstorming, and writing from the heart to name three. I’ve signed up for many others but haven’t completed them yet. This is a work at your own pace thing; handouts are available and there are assignments and teacher/student interaction if you want it. I seldom do. Some of these classes are good, some not so good, but all of them are interesting in one way or another. If you’d like to learn more about their history and the Udemy founders go to the Udemy Wikipedia site .
Some exciting news is that there’s also opportunity for YOU to teach a class. Now don’t get nervous. 😉 For those of you who don’t yet call yourselves writers, you can teach anything: cake decorating, quilting, even crafting jewelry or braiding rag rugs. Udemy has free instruction on how to pull your class together.
Explore their user-friendly website to see what’s available for you. Remember, check out all the FREE classes. Did I mention that once you sign up for a class, you have life time access to it?
I’m curious… have any of you taken classes from Udemy?
