It takes a moment to wrap your head around the sheer breadth of courses offered by Udemy. The education app, with which experts and enthusiasts can create and publish their own classes, currently has more than 130,000 courses by some 50,000 instructors covering 2,000 topics. There’s a lot to explore.
While other education apps might cover broader topics—something along the lines of Business 101—Udemy tends to focus on granular topics: Start a T-Shirt Business or Learn Pixel Art for Video Games, for example. It also does a good job breaking down fields into subcategories that zero in on your particular needs. Perhaps what you need more than an intro to business, for example, are a few courses in strategy—specifically, how to increase your brand awareness. You’ll find offerings in Udemy that cover just that.
Courses range from about $10 to $200 (keep an eye out for sales), and many are free. When you purchase a class, it is yours to watch indefinitely through Udemy’s iPhone, iPad, and Apple TV apps, as well as its website. All of the content can also be downloaded to your device—perfect for studying on the flight to your next job interview.
