Udemy is one app that almost every online learner must have heard of. Whether you would like to learn new skills to improve your job prospects, learn ways to promote your business on social media, or learn a new programming language just to pursue your hobby or explore alternate career options, Udemy features over 130,000 video courses, covering more than 2,000 topics. From coding to data science, machine learning to artificial intelligence, personality development to investment banking, photography to makeup course, and Adobe Photoshop, you just name the topic — and, there’s a course for you to enroll and learn new skills at your own pace.

As Udemy features thousands of video courses, its app UI ensures that finding a course of your choice on the platform should not be an added task for you. Therefore, on the homepage, you can browse through the list of “in-demand skills”, “Featured” or “Top” courses in different categories like Design, Business, IT & Software, Marketing, Personal Development, and Web Development, for example. Needless to mention, you also have a choice to search for a course by topic.

To help you narrow down the choices, each course listed on the app provides you with details like course description, number of students already enrolled, what you’ll learn, duration of the course, curriculum, about the instructor, supported languages and captions, and most importantly, rating and feedback by students who’ve already completed that course. It is worth mentioning here that you’ll also get a “Certificate of Completion” for almost every course listed on Udemy, meaning learning through Udemy will add weightage to your resume as well.

Moreover, the “Certificate of Completion” is a sense of achievement that ensures you won’t leave the course in between once enrolled, thus you watch all video lectures, participate in quizzes, and submit your assignments while learning at a pace that suits you. All courses can be downloaded for offline viewing, and you can even message instructors for help. It should be noted that you’ll get lifetime access to the content you’ve subscribed.
