Ive ordered a couple of courses
I’ve ordered a couple of courses from Udemy company. They’re good for getting general knowledge on a subject relatively quickly in a structured manner. If you wanna get more in-depth knowledge though, I would not advice. The business model does not encourage really in-depth content!
Products used:Online courses
It’s the best website for those who wants to study IT. They offer good discounts for their courses. I bought Front-End Development course for 15 USD and really like it!
I love it!
Cool learning platform! I recommend!
OK if you know what you want
I took several of the lessons and they are good but depends on the course owners.
Great content but approach with caution
I took several design courses from Udemy. Got them with a 99% discount. Udemy is a great source for those willing to educate themselves. But always read reviews of a course before you start it. Otherwise, you might end up immersed into mediocre content. These days, almost anyone who tries hard enough can get their course up and running on MOOC websites and platforms, and, unfortunately, Udemy often falls victim to mediocre educators.
Tip for consumers:Try their iOS app! I took a whole course on my stairmaster with the video running on my iPad!

Requested a refund for a course
Requested a refund for a course, they refund in credits and left the paypal option in very small font size that is very easy to miss, i contacted them and they said i was not able to get a refund, thankfully the course was 90% off and i didn’t lose that much, could have lost 130 euros, avoid this site.
I dont understand why there are many
I dont understand why there are so many bad reviews for Udemy.Probably, because people are not smart enough who don’t know how to use/utilise the platform.I have been using the platform for 2 years now.1st point) No it is not a scam. There is lot of content and you can learn lot of videos which are great.2nd point) Yes, its very easy to get refund. All you have to do is press, right click on the top menu when you are on the course and click on “Request Refund” and fill the form and money comes to your account. The money came to my account. There was no problem. 3rd point) Those people that say they only refund credits, well they are not that clever are they, went you request the money, they give you two options .request credit or refund (its right below request credits option).4th point) ait is not expensive if you know how the model of Udemy works. Every few days they bring down the prices (I know they say discount ends soon, but its just marketing tacktic). You just have to search it everyday and you will find discounted price atlesst 5 days every 2 weeks.
Great courses if you look for them!
If you choose your courses wisely then this is a great platform, I’ve been in the process of a career change in to the tech industry and the courses I’ve taken on Udemy have been a great help. I don’t like the way they set the prices up though. Obviously nobody buys them at full price, if there isn’t a sale on then there’s always a voucher code to get the course cheap. I don’t see why Udemy doesn’t just sell the courses at the lower cost all the time, I totally get why people see them as a potential scam because of the the way the prices change all the time. As for the people saying the courses are terrible, do your research before taking a course and you’ll find the right one. Had to contact technical support once because I purchased the wrong course. Had a full refund within 24 hours.
