“It’s great to learn; knowledge is power!” Ah, School House Rock, you taught us well. A part of personal growth, as well as growth within our fields, requires a constant state of learning. Whether new knowledge is gained through books, our peers, or formal education, it is know we must acquire this information from a source other than ourselves.
While stumbling through the Internet to find a tutorial, we came across Udemy. If we could pick one tool for online learning, this would be it. What is Udemy, though? It’s a website where people from all over the world can come to learn basically anything they want. Free or paid tutorials are placed on Udemy in endless categories, ranging from,“5 Steps to a Better You” or more complex lessons like, “Coding for Linux,” with a range of different versions to get exactly what you need.
Udemy is great if you’re interested in an area of work or a hobby, but you’re not sure if you want to pay gobs of money to pursue it full time. It’s also perfect if you’re farther along in your career to hone your skills in areas you want to refine. Even though a little over half the tutorials cost (ranging from $5-$500 for more advanced courses) the knowledge gained in the end is a more than a fair trade off.
Before you make a commitment to purchasing a tutorial on Udemy, the site gives lots of information to make sure you’re getting what you want. Listed under the tutorials are ratings by those who have watched it before. Also included are previews of what is taught in the tutorial, broken down by sections. It’s very specific, and is helpful when deciding if the course is really what you’re looking for.
Whether you need a certification, Photoshop demo, or instruction on how to integrate eCommerce into web development, Udemy has got you covered.
