Comments from some of those that selected Udemy as one of their Top 10 Tools

“This is where I go to learn new skills, last week I bought a course on iPhone photography” Helen Sanderson, New Zealand

“I sign up for all the free classes for learning about new stuff, usually just for personal interest but also sometimes for work.” Sharyn Mayne, Australia

“I have all the knowledge i need without having to pay every month. You buy a training and you have it for life (Unlike Lynda.com)” Olusegun Adegboyega-Edun, e-learning developer, USA, 2016

“with constant shifts in tools and technologies, I find it helpful committing to a structured program. Between the options available and almost constant price specials, I get courses worth hundreds of dollars for $15 (cheaper than many books on the same topics and with much more interaction/resources).” David Glow, 2015
