We think it’s important to hear from customers before purchasing to get a better idea of what the company excels at and where they fall short. Below are a couple of positive and negative reviews we found online for you to consider.
They had a lot of courses but to find them you had to do a Google search for them. But they had a great variety of courses to choose from. I found it so confusing I stopped using it. I would recommend them fixing the site to have more subscribers because I know others feel the same way but not saying it. They are trying to educate the people which is a good thing. With knowledge comes power so that’s a must. So I give them a plus for trying to help out. – Melissa, Consumer Affairs 8/29/2016

I was very impressed. not only were they fast, they anticipated my problem since i was NOT completely clear in STATING IT, *** KUDOS TO (LARAVEL) AND EDWIN DIAZ AND ALSO (REACT0 ANDREW MEAD. – Pete, TrustPilot 1/18/2017
I purchased a course yesterday and one today. Both courses in the span of an hour disappeared from my “Courses” list. They were there an hour ago. And when reaching out to Udemy support their response time was estimated at 1-2 business days. I don’t have time for this. – Jay, Consumer Affairs 5/3/2017
This review is from instructor side. I have submitted my video for test , and I have resieved the answer, that it is not my video??? I have contacted customer service. Keily from customer service, was very kind. But, she couldn’t help me. Thouse guys from video test crew, just been kidding me. I have been following their own instructions. Probably, they haven’t read it.. Poor management, not friendly stuff. – Vadim G., TrustPilot 5/2/2017
Our team was discussing Udemy and we realized some of us were pronouncing it differently from others. This made us wonder who was correct. Checkout the video below to learn how to properly say the company name.
Corporate Training Through Udemy
The demand for corporate online training continues to grow, proving that Udemy training could be a viable option for many companies. If your company is changing software or hardware, Udemy may be a good option to train your staff on how to use the new program. Plus, it may be less expensive and more convenient than hiring an on-site trainer.
But Udemy is not your only option, see how they stacked up vs other online learning sites in our online learning platform comparison.
