Here at Udemy, we’re committed to building the best place to learn online and helping our 10 million students achieve their learning goals. Today, we’re thrilled to release a new course-taking experience, completely rebuilt with a learning-first approach.

Learning science, user research, and your input helped shape the improved experience. Now, course content is front and center, and you have more ways than ever to tailor your learning.

What’s new:

  • Immerse yourself: A full-screen course player minimizes distractions so that you can get the most out of your time on Udemy.
  • Control the pace: Player controls and keyboard shortcuts enable you to easily speed up, slow down, or replay parts of lectures. Learning at your own speed has never been easier.
  • Save moments for later: Annotate and access the parts of courses that are most important to you using Bookmarks (formerly called Notes).
  • Get answers… fast: Quickly find answers to your questions and view the most popular ones. Help other students by marking responses as helpful or replying to a question. Discussions are now Questions.

The redesigned course-taking experience is the latest example of our dedication to making learning on Udemy more rewarding, relevant, and accessible. And this is just the start. We’re constantly exploring new ways to evolve our platform, ensuring students learn what they set out to achieve.
