Learning Resource Review: Udemy

One of the most daunting aspects of learning a new skill is investment - not only of time, but also of money. As a student, it is important to have confidence that your hard-earned money and limited time are put to use in a way that is efficient and brings you closer to the end goal you are trying to accomplish. With this in mind, look no further than Udemy.

Variety and Flexibility

Udemy is a collection of online courses that address a wide variety of topics from traditional IT topics (including cyber security and network administration) to fitness and photography. Udemy courses are taught through their video lecture interface that plays a series of videos in succession as defined by the instructor. Want to skip ahead or review a topic? You are able to jump to any section within the lecture series anytime you wish.

In addition to the abundance of topics, the pricing structure is also flexible. Udemy offers courses that are free of charge as well as more in-depth topics for up to $50. When compared to a traditional college course, the lectures offered through Udemy are more affordable and focused. This allows you to learn what you want to know at a faster rate and with a lower price tag. Once you have selected a course, it will be added to your library. From there, you can access any materials that you have purchased or enrolled in previously.

Learn with Confidence

Courses are rated and reviewed by other users. Taking the time to read the reviews is very helpful in determining if the lectures in the series are right for you. Knowing that other students have had successes related to the course you are interested in taking will allow you to make selections and purchases with confidence. Further, once you have finished a course, you can leave your own feedback to share your experiences.

If you are working through a topic and get stuck, you are able to ask and review questions that other students have submitted. Do you have expert knowledge related to a lecture that you would like to share? Put that knowledge to use by answering questions from other users. This communal effort is very important as it adds to the strength of the course while allowing you to solve problems quickly.

Learn on the Go

Many of the features available on the desktop are also available on mobile platforms. Take your learning with you wherever you go. Udemy is currently available for free on the Google Play Store and the Apple Play Store.

If you are working through your personalized learning plan and need help with a specific competency or a cluster of competencies related to a topic, I highly recommend trying Udemy based on my personal successes using their courses. Click here to get started and learn about how their courses can help you!
