A couple of months ago, Class Central reported that Udemy will pilot a catalog subscription for learners in the English market. The pilot is live now.
Udemy’s “Personal plan” is based on its Business Plan. The Business Plan costs $360/year/employee and gives unlimited access to 5,500+ courses. This is just a small fraction of its massive catalog.
Early this year, I analyzed Udemy’s catalog of 157,000+ courses and found that the median enrollment was just 188, and Udemy’s top 20% courses by enrollment account for 90% of all enrollments. Here is a Class Central’s compilation of the top Udemy courses of all time by enrollment count.
The Personal Plan costs $30/month (after a 7 day free trial) and gives learners access to 5,000+ courses. Here is how this compares with other catalog subscriptions.
||$400/year or $60/month
||$99/year or $19/month
Learners still have the choice to purchase courses individually if they want lifetime access to the materials.
Udemy was one of the companies that was rumored to go public in 2021, but halfway through the year, we haven’t seen any movement from the company on this front.
