Udemy online learning

Udemy is one of the largest online learning platforms for professional learning. According to the company, they have 35 million registered users. An analysis by Class Central shows they’ve launched over 157,000 courses since 2010.

The pandemic has boosted the fortune of many online providers. Udemy is no exception. In 2020 alone, the company raised $123 million and increased its valuation by over $1 billion. Overall, the company has raised ~$300 million at a valuation over $3 billion.

Class Central also experienced a quarantine boost: of all the people who ever used Class Central, 40% did so for the first time in 2020.

After focusing exclusively on MOOCs or Massive Open Online Courses for the last nine years, we’re ready to expand to other kinds of online courses. As an obvious first step, we decided to look at Udemy online courses.

Udemy By the Numbers

Last year, we formed a remote study group at Class Central, and four of us took an Excel course together. To hone my Excel skills, I decided to analyze Udemy’s active catalog.

I discovered they currently have over 157,000 courses in their catalog — a 60% increase compared to 2019. Complete analysis of Udemy’s catalog can be found here: 157K Courses, 425M Enrollments: Breaking Down Udemy’s Massive Catalog

Combined, these courses have gathered ~425 million enrollments and average 2700 enrollments per course. But what surprised me the most was that the median enrollment was 188. Do Udemy courses satisfy the Pareto 80/20 principle? I found that Udemy’s top-20% courses by enrollment account for 90% of all enrollments.

You can also find some of the best Udemy courses on Class Central’s catalog page.

250 Top Udemy Courses
Here’s a quick summary of 250 Udemy top courses based on the number of enrollments:

Enrollments range from 135K to 1.6 million. There are three courses with over 1 million enrollments.
Combined, they account for ~57 million enrollments, with an average of 231K enrollments.
Almost 70% of the courses are in the field of technology.
76% of the courses are paid.
Combined, they represent thousands of hours of content.
Here are the top 250 courses on Udemy sorted by number of enrollments.
