Udemy, the global marketplace for online learning and teaching has announced to expand its operations in India by setting up an employee hub in Gurgaon.
Founded in 2010, Udemy, with over 30 million students and 42,000 instructors worldwide, is an online learning destination that helps individuals, companies, and Governments gain the skills they need to compete in today’s global economy.
India is one of the company’s fastest growing markets, with revenue and students doubling year-over-year. A local presence will enable Udemy to continue enhancing and localising the student and instructor experiences
Built on the premise that not all teachers are found in traditional classrooms, the platform allows experts everywhere to develop courses on thousands of topics and share their knowledge with the world. Students learn the most current and in-demand skills from public speaking to mindfulness to the newest programming languages and marketing strategies.
“Udemy’s rapid growth in India shows us the level of demand from students, instructors, and companies for affordable skills training,” explained Udemy CEO Gregg Coccari.
“We are dedicated to our mission of improving lives through learning and expanding in India enables us to deliver on that promise,” he added.
Udemy courses are in over 50 languages that can be viewed on the web, on a mobile device, Apple TV, and through Chromecast. In addition, Udemy students are able to download and view the courses offline, as well as change video quality for low-bandwidth environments.
