Udemy in Singapore

Exciting!

That would be word to describe the Singapore training landscape during from now through 2020 and beyond. Udemy is proud to be part of the launch of the iN.LEARN 2020 strategy and the opening of the iN.LAB on 28 Oct 2015. The Guest of Honour, Parliamentary Secretary for Ministry of Education and Ministry of Trade and Industry, Ms. Low Yen Ling, unveiled the roadmap, iN.LEARN 2020, for Singapore training providers over the next 4 years. The government will drive innovative learning approaches through funding and facilities; training professionals can now meet in a 2-story facility, iN.LAB, to ideate and develop new products for the local and global training community.

Udemy has been actively engaging training organizations and government bodies in Singapore over the past year to align Udemy’s platform and online course offering with key initiatives and plans, such as SkillsFuture, a government-driven program to increase and improve lifelong learning for adult learners in Singapore. Together with Udemy’s local partner in Singapore, Dioworks Learning, Udemy is reaching out to the Singapore workforce to enable upskilling efforts.

Going forward, Dioworks Learning will also be running masterclasses and practitioners’ sharing sessions for the Singapore training community. The good news for experts who are selling their courses on Udemy is that with the government making a concerted effort to promote online learning among the workforce, more learners from Singapore are expected to purchase courses on Udemy for their own professional development.

We’re excited to help Singaporeans reach their professional goals with online training!
