Udemy: the online platform where anyone can teach anything (and that’s why it’s worth billions)

Published

udemy

With 150,000 courses ranging from how to win at poker to the beginnings of quantum mechanics, online education startup is growing during the pandemic.

Gregg Coccari feels torn. The coronavirus pandemic has left tens of millions of people out of work. But the company he runs, the online learning platform Udemy , is thriving. “Of course we are very excited about that,” he says. “But we are also seeing people fired and we see them fighting.”

Many of those people flock to Udemy’s selection of 150,000 online classes, most of which sell for between $ 10 and $ 20. In May alone, the company recorded 25 million new registrations , compared to 9 million the previous May. Its Udemy for Business division , which sells annual subscriptions for $ 360 per user to companies like Adidas and Toyota , is also booming. Among the most popular classes: best practices for Zoom video conferencing and how to manage a virtual team.

From March to May, Udemy sales doubled the total for the same period in 2019, says Coccari. The growing demand is likely to generate revenues of more than $ 400 million this year, according to two sources with knowledge of Udemy’s finances. According to Coccari, Udemy would be profitable if it did not plan to hire 200 people this year and invest in expansion abroad. He already has courses in 65 languages ​​and clients in 190 countries.

Dressed in a wide gray T-shirt, Coccari, 67, is handling things from a room in his 1920s Spanish colonial home in Santa Monica, California. Since the beginning of 2019, when he became CEO, most Mondays he took a 6:30 am flight to San Francisco, where the company is based, or went to one of its branches in Denver, Dublin, Ankara , São Paulo or Gurgaon, India. Now his life mimics a Udemy course, and he’s not excited about it. “Yesterday I had ten hours of Zoom meetings,” he says. “I would like to break my laptop. I prefer human interaction ».

But Udemy is benefiting from global confinement. While K-12 schools and universities struggle to teach online, Udemy is simply opening the key to a pioneering business model. Its platform hosts unaccredited instructor-led courses that independently create videotaped lessons and answer questions by email from students on a Udemy message board. The company collects a portion , usually 50%, of the course fees. Users determine which courses get the most traffic by posting star ratings and reviews.

Founder Eren Bali , 35, who chairs the Udemy board , came up with the idea for the company after growing up in an impoverished town in southeast Turkey, where he pursued his mathematical obsession with researching problems on the Web. He believed that great online instructors did not need sophisticated titles. “We wanted to create a market-based education company where any expert in the world could teach their own course, ” he says. He attempted to launch a live version of the site in Turkey in 2007. He failed, but SpeedDate, a Silicon Valley-based live online dating site, hired him as an engineer.

He and two co-founders started the launch of Udemy in the United States (the name is an acronym for “you” and “academy”) in 2010 after more than 200 funders rejected them. Edtech investor Daniel Pianko of New York-based University Ventures regrets to miss the opportunity. “I thought the idea was too crazy,” he says. Online education at the time was dominated by accredited for-profit giants like the University of Phoenix. “It was a totally revolutionary concept , that someone not affiliated with a university could teach a course,” he says.

Udemy’s early courses included how to earn money playing online poker and how to choose women. But the founders soon realized that coding and business skills, like data science and team building, were more in demand. Those courses represent two-thirds of the Udemy selection. But the platform is still open for anyone who wants to teach. Portrait drawing and Reiki massage courses have been popular during the pandemic .

Competing onlind education sites, including LinkedIn Learning and Coursera , work with university professors (Coursera) or select potential instructors (LinkedIn Learning) and reject most applicants. Conversely, instructors Udemy should only be six elements in a list of verification of minimum requirements as to the post least 30 minutes of video content course. Everything is subject to a list of not-us such as pornography, firearms and expressions of hatred. Some of Udemy’s best instructors earn up to $ 1 million a year.

Coccari says several hundred instructors make at least six figures annually, and that number is likely to double this year. They include Teresa Greenway , 61, who earned $ 12,400 this May from her baking courses. She dropped out of high school and married at age 21, had 10 children, including one son with autism, before escaping her abusive marriage a decade ago. “I had no degree, no work history, and I was quite emotionally abused,” she says. In 2015, he ran into Udemy and organized a three-hour sourdough course .

He now has 13 courses, plus other sources of income, including eight self-published books, which he sells on Amazon . She records all of her Udemy videos in advance. Once published, they run on autopilot. Their only interaction with students is through a Udemy message board where students post questions. Spend 20 minutes a day writing responses. Last year, Udemy accounted for the bulk of the $ 78,000 he earned. This year, he expects his income to double .

Bali retired as CEO in 2014 and the company landed two more bosses before Coccari took office last year. (In 2014, Bali co-founded a San Francisco startup, Carbon Health , where he is CEO.) A Wharton graduate and CEO of serial startups, Coccari’s last job was to head up Milwaukee-based premium pet food provider Stella & Chewy’s. One of that company’s sponsors, Ken Fox of New York-based venture firm Stripes, is an investor in Udemy and a member of the board. He asked Coccari to take over as CEO and manage the expansion of Udemy.

In February, Coccari closed a $ 50 million investment from Benesse Holdings , the Tokyo-based senior education and care conglomerate that owns Berlitz language schools. The deal brought Udemy’s total capital invested to more than $ 200 million and increased its valuation from a total of $ 710 million to $ 2 billion. Although Japan’s pandemic blockades were less restrictive than those of other countries, Udemy’s Japanese revenue in the first five months of 2020 tripled sales for the same period in 2019 , according to Benesse CEO Tamotsu Adachi.

Coccari is cautious in predicting how the pandemic will shape the future of education. But online learning cheerleaders like Chicago edtech investor Deborah Quazzo of GSV Ventures believe the virtual education market will hit $ 1 trillion in 2026 , more than double what it had expected before the pandemic. She says Udemy is about to increase in size and regrets not having funded the company. “I was stupid,” she says.

Coccari says he is concentrating on the present. “We are really focused on making sure we can handle these massive spikes in traffic,” he says. “We don’t know what the world will look like at the end of all this.”

A statement from his family to the AP says that Jordan died in his sleep.

Jordan, who grew up in the segregated south, rose to prominence as a civil rights activist. After studying law at Howard University, Jordan first fought against segregation with a lawsuit against the University of Georgia in 1961. He also worked as a NAACP field worker and director of the Southern Regional Council for the Voter Education Project before serving as president of the National Urban League.

Jordan worked closely on civil rights issues with presidents from Lyndon Johnson in the 1960’s to Barack Obama during the past decade. He was particularly close with the Clintons, advising then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton during his successful 1992 presidential campaign and as an outside adviser during the Clinton administration, including during the Lewinsky scandal. He also strongly endorsed both of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns.

He also served as executive director of the United Negro College Fund.

The Clintons, in a statement, highlighted that “Jordan brought his big brain and strong heart to everything and everybody he touched. And he made them better. He was never too busy to give good advice and encouragement to young people. And he never gave up on his friends or his country.”

They called him “a wonderful friend… in good times and bad. We worked and played, laughed and cried, won and lost together. We loved him very much and always will
“It was just the way he would have wanted it,” Walker told CNN.
The former president of the National Urban League rose to prominence as a civil rights activist with close connections in all corners of American politics, though he was closest with Democrats, including presidents from Lyndon Johnson to Barack Obama. He also worked with Republican Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
In a statement provided to CNN on Tuesday by Clinton’s office, the 42nd President remembered his late friend as someone who “brought his big brain and strong heart to everything and everybody he touched” and “who made them better.”
“He was never too busy to give good advice and encouragement to young people. And he never gave up on his friends or his country,” Clinton said. “He was a wonderful friend to Hillary, Chelsea, and me, in good times and bad. We worked and played, laughed and cried, won and lost together. We loved him very much and always will.”
Born on August 15, 1935, Jordan grew up in the segregated South and graduated from DePauw University in Indiana in 1957, the only Black student in his class. He then studied law at Howard University and began his career fighting segregation, starting with a lawsuit against University of Georgia’s integration policy in 1961 on the behalf of two Black students, Hamilton Holmes and Charlayne Hunter. Jordan accompanied the two students to the UGA admissions office that year through an angry mob of White students.
He worked as a field director for the NAACP and as a director of the Southern Regional Council for the Voter Education Project before he became president of the National Urban League. In 1980, he survived an assassination attempt on his life.
“Today, the world lost an influential figure in the fight for civil rights and American politics, Vernon Jordan. An icon to the world and a lifelong friend to the NAACP, his contribution to moving our society toward justice is unparalleled,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson said in a statement Tuesday. “In 2001, Jordan received the NAACP’s Spingarn Medal for a lifetime of social justice activism. His exemplary life will shine as a guiding light for all that seek truth and justice for all people.”
Jordan’s closest political friendship was with Bill and Hillary Clinton, advising the then-Arkansas governor during his 1992 presidential campaign and acting as an outside adviser to his friend. He remained close to the Clintons for the next decades, endorsing both of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns.
Jordan first met Clinton during a trip to Little Rock, Arkansas, when he was leading the Urban League and Clinton was Arkansas attorney general, and the two formed a friendship that spanned decades and withstood rocky times.
“We have formed a bond that is indescribable,” Clinton said at a 2019 event hosted by the Clinton Foundation.
Clinton tapped Jordan, who left the Urban League after 10 years to practice law in DC, to serve as chairman of his 1992 presidential transition team. The position propelled Jordan into becoming a Washington power broker as he acted as a close confidant to Clinton, advising him on several hirings, golfing frequently with the President and sharing Christmas Eves together.
In the late ’90s, Jordan’s friendship with Clinton found him entangled in then-independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s investigation, which uncovered the affair Clinton had with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky while in office. Jordan had helped Lewinsky job hunt at the request of Clinton’s personal secretary and had recommended an attorney who briefly represented Lewinsky. Jordan testified several times before the grand jury.
Jordan also had an illustrious career in the corporate world, serving on the board of directors for several major American corporations.
DePauw University on Tuesday mourned the passing of Jordan, and its president, Lori S. White, said in a statement that the university “has lost a dear friend and the world has lost a determined leader.”
“He spoke loudly — through words and deeds — as a civil rights activist and quietly as a trusted counsel to presidents,” White said. “DePauw is better for having had him as a beloved alumnus, and the country and the world are better for having him as a leader.”
In a tweet Tuesday morning, Obama, said he and former first lady Michelle Obama “benefited from Vernon Jordan’s wise counsel and warm friendship—and deeply admired his tireless fight for civil rights.”
“We hope the memory of his extraordinary presence and the legacy of his work bring comfort to Ann, Vickee, and his family,” Obama said.
This story has been updated with additional reaction and details about Jordan’s life.

A statement from his family to the AP says that Jordan died in his sleep.

Jordan, who grew up in the segregated south, rose to prominence as a civil rights activist. After studying law at Howard University, Jordan first fought against segregation with a lawsuit against the University of Georgia in 1961. He also worked as a NAACP field worker and director of the Southern Regional Council for the Voter Education Project before serving as president of the National Urban League.

Jordan worked closely on civil rights issues with presidents from Lyndon Johnson in the 1960’s to Barack Obama during the past decade. He was particularly close with the Clintons, advising then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton during his successful 1992 presidential campaign and as an outside adviser during the Clinton administration, including during the Lewinsky scandal. He also strongly endorsed both of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns.

He also served as executive director of the United Negro College Fund.

The Clintons, in a statement, highlighted that “Jordan brought his big brain and strong heart to everything and everybody he touched. And he made them better. He was never too busy to give good advice and encouragement to young people. And he never gave up on his friends or his country.”

They called him “a wonderful friend… in good times and bad. We worked and played, laughed and cried, won and lost together. We loved him very much and always will
“It was just the way he would have wanted it,” Walker told CNN.
The former president of the National Urban League rose to prominence as a civil rights activist with close connections in all corners of American politics, though he was closest with Democrats, including presidents from Lyndon Johnson to Barack Obama. He also worked with Republican Presidents Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.
In a statement provided to CNN on Tuesday by Clinton’s office, the 42nd President remembered his late friend as someone who “brought his big brain and strong heart to everything and everybody he touched” and “who made them better.”
“He was never too busy to give good advice and encouragement to young people. And he never gave up on his friends or his country,” Clinton said. “He was a wonderful friend to Hillary, Chelsea, and me, in good times and bad. We worked and played, laughed and cried, won and lost together. We loved him very much and always will.”
Born on August 15, 1935, Jordan grew up in the segregated South and graduated from DePauw University in Indiana in 1957, the only Black student in his class. He then studied law at Howard University and began his career fighting segregation, starting with a lawsuit against University of Georgia’s integration policy in 1961 on the behalf of two Black students, Hamilton Holmes and Charlayne Hunter. Jordan accompanied the two students to the UGA admissions office that year through an angry mob of White students.
He worked as a field director for the NAACP and as a director of the Southern Regional Council for the Voter Education Project before he became president of the National Urban League. In 1980, he survived an assassination attempt on his life.
“Today, the world lost an influential figure in the fight for civil rights and American politics, Vernon Jordan. An icon to the world and a lifelong friend to the NAACP, his contribution to moving our society toward justice is unparalleled,” NAACP President Derrick Johnson said in a statement Tuesday. “In 2001, Jordan received the NAACP’s Spingarn Medal for a lifetime of social justice activism. His exemplary life will shine as a guiding light for all that seek truth and justice for all people.”
Jordan’s closest political friendship was with Bill and Hillary Clinton, advising the then-Arkansas governor during his 1992 presidential campaign and acting as an outside adviser to his friend. He remained close to the Clintons for the next decades, endorsing both of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaigns.
Jordan first met Clinton during a trip to Little Rock, Arkansas, when he was leading the Urban League and Clinton was Arkansas attorney general, and the two formed a friendship that spanned decades and withstood rocky times.
“We have formed a bond that is indescribable,” Clinton said at a 2019 event hosted by the Clinton Foundation.
Clinton tapped Jordan, who left the Urban League after 10 years to practice law in DC, to serve as chairman of his 1992 presidential transition team. The position propelled Jordan into becoming a Washington power broker as he acted as a close confidant to Clinton, advising him on several hirings, golfing frequently with the President and sharing Christmas Eves together.
In the late ’90s, Jordan’s friendship with Clinton found him entangled in then-independent counsel Kenneth Starr’s investigation, which uncovered the affair Clinton had with former White House intern Monica Lewinsky while in office. Jordan had helped Lewinsky job hunt at the request of Clinton’s personal secretary and had recommended an attorney who briefly represented Lewinsky. Jordan testified several times before the grand jury.
Jordan also had an illustrious career in the corporate world, serving on the board of directors for several major American corporations.
DePauw University on Tuesday mourned the passing of Jordan, and its president, Lori S. White, said in a statement that the university “has lost a dear friend and the world has lost a determined leader.”
“He spoke loudly — through words and deeds — as a civil rights activist and quietly as a trusted counsel to presidents,” White said. “DePauw is better for having had him as a beloved alumnus, and the country and the world are better for having him as a leader.”
In a tweet Tuesday morning, Obama, said he and former first lady Michelle Obama “benefited from Vernon Jordan’s wise counsel and warm friendship—and deeply admired his tireless fight for civil rights.”
“We hope the memory of his extraordinary presence and the legacy of his work bring comfort to Ann, Vickee, and his family,” Obama said.
This story has been updated with additional reaction and details about Jordan’s life.

Memphis visits Washington after Beal’s 46-point game

Washington Wizards (13-19, 12th in the Eastern Conference) vs. Memphis Grizzlies (15-15, 10th in the Western Conference)

Washington; Tuesday, 7 p.m. EST

BOTTOM LINE: Washington takes on the Memphis Grizzlies after Bradley Beal scored 46 points in the Wizards’ 111-110 loss to the Celtics.

The Wizards are 6-9 on their home court. Washington is 2-13 when outrebounded by opponents and averages 44.7 rebounds per game.

The Grizzlies are 8-5 in road games. Memphis ranks second in the league with 27.2 assists per game led by Ja Morant averaging 7.7.

The matchup Tuesday is the first meeting this season between the two teams.

TOP PERFORMERS: Beal is averaging 33.2 points, 5.4 rebounds and 4.8 assists for the Wizards. Davis Bertans is averaging 3.4 made 3-pointers and 12.9 points over the last 10 games for Washington.

Morant leads the Grizzlies averaging 18.4 points and is adding 3.1 rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas is averaging 16.1 points and 11.1 rebounds while shooting 55.5% over the last 10 games for Memphis.

LAST 10 GAMES: Wizards: 7-3, averaging 116.7 points, 46.6 rebounds, 24.7 assists, 8.2 steals and 3.4 blocks per game while shooting 47.2% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 115 points on 45.4% shooting.

Grizzlies: 5-5, averaging 111.6 points, 44.2 rebounds, 25 assists, 10 steals and 2.5 blocks per game while shooting 47.3% from the field. Their opponents have averaged 110.4 points on 46.9% shooting.

INJURIES:

Wizards: Ish Smith: out (quad), Thomas Bryant: out for season (left knee).

Grizzlies: Jaren Jackson Jr.: out (knee), Grayson Allen: out (concussion protocol).



Pregame notes

Bounce back? — The Wizards were that close to 8 wins in 9 games. But Jayson Tatum decided otherwise. With 8 points in the last 2 minutes he single-handedly changed the outcome of Sunday’s game. The Grizzlies are the perfect opportunity to bounce back at home from that loss before a very tough stretch that includes the Clippers, the Grizzlies again, the 76ers, and the Bucks (twice). The Wizards want to arrive to the trade deadline (March 25) as close as possible to .500 and that will be tough. Today is a thus a must-win if they want to keep Beal happy and here.

The Wizards can play D — It was encouraging to see how the Wizards can play D with the right personnel and energy. Let’s see if they can keep it against Memphis.

Flashback: What did Jayson Tatum just do?

This just happened yesterday, but it’s shocking what Jayson Tatum did. Worth a flashback already!

All NBA game live stream 2020/21: how to watch Washington Wizards vs Memphis Grizzlies online

In order to watch the NBA on TV in the US, you’ll need either cable TV – or access to a good streaming service.

The biggest, nationally televised games are aired across a number of channels: ESPN, ABC, TNT and NBA TV. Regional sports networks (RSNs) also get a significant slice of the regular season action, and are important to have access to if you’re a fan of a particular team.

The cheapest way to watch Wizards vs Grizzlies live stream

If you only want to watch the biggest games and are less concerned about RSN coverage, you can watch the NBA online for less with great value OTT streaming service Sling TV.

Its Orange package costs just $30 a month and gets you ESPN and TNT, while a $10 p/m Sports Extra add-on nets you NBA TV. This combo will give you an NBA live stream for many nationally televised games, with ABC the only channel not on offer.

Unlike cable, cancel your subscription at any time – but its RSN offering is slightly limited, however.

More ways to watch NBA basketball online

Another quality option is fuboTV, which offers ESPN, TNT and NBA TV along with national channels like ABC, CBS and NBC in most major markets. Packages start from $59.99 a month for the cable replacement service and there’s a FREE 2-week fuboTV trial you can try to see if it’s right for you.

It also features regional sports networks (RSNs) for local coverage in many areas, including NBC’s affiliates in Philadelphia, Washington and Chicago, plus MSG and SportsNet NY for the New York market and NESN in the Greater Boston area

However, other RSNs including most SportsNet affiliates (including Spectrum SportsNet LA) and New York’s YES Network can now only be found on the AT&T TV Now service.

How to watch the NBA: Wizards vs Grizzlies live stream in the UK

UK basketball fans can watch the NBA and live stream this season’s biggest games (as well as those of the WNBA) on Sky Sports – available on Sky of course, as well as with BT and Virgin Media, TV packages.

Not interested in the commitment or cost of a full-fat Sky Sports subscription, but still want to watch the NBA live in the UK? There’s also the option of a streaming-only Now TV Sky Sports Pass.

Your final option is the NBA League Pass, which is available in the UK and will get you every single game of the 2020/21 season from just £3.99 a month for your pick of any three NBA games to watch; £14.99 p/m for full coverage of a single team; or £24.99 a month to get a UK NBA live stream of every single game around.

Should you sign up to that or any other UK sports streaming service, you may well want to watch your subscription from abroad – and as detailed above, all you need is a good VPN on your bench.

How to watch NBA online: live stream every 2021 game in Canada

If you’re a Canadian basketball fan, then you probably (but not necessarily) want to know how to watch the Raptors.

SportsNet and TSN share NBA coverage in Canada, including Raptors games. Both are widely available on cable but also offer streaming-only services – TSN Direct (from CAD$19.99 a month) and SN Now (from $9.99 a month).

For fans of teams that aren’t the Raptors or just love watching basketball in general, Canada’s NBA League Pass offering is the way to go. While Raptors games are subject to blackout, no other teams are affected, making it a great choice.

Plus, Canadian hoops fans travelling abroad can always use a VPN to get the same NBA coverage they’d normally watch (and pay for) back home.

NBA live stream 2020/21: how to watch basketball online in Australia

If you plan on watching the NBA on TV this season in Australia, then you’ll need a cable package that gives you access to ESPN, as the network owns the country’s NBA broadcast rights. You can get a Foxtel subscription with the sports package included that will allow you to watch all the season’s biggest televised games on ESPN, while free-to-air broadcaster SBS may also be showing select matchups for free on certain weekends.

Don’t want to sign up for Foxtel just to watch the NBA this season? Then great value over-the-top service Kayo Sports has you covered as it will allow you to stream all of ESPN’s NBA coverage for way less than a pay TV package. It costs between $25 and $35 a month, depending on which option, you choose but new customers will be able to test it out for themselves thanks to the service’s 14-day FREE TRIAL.

NBA League Pass is also available in Australia and is a great option for true NBA fanatics who want to watch every game of their favourite team and other action from around the league that might not always be on ESPN’s broadcast schedule.

Going abroad? Remember to consider packing a quality VPN, which will let you access all the same streaming services, NBA games and general sports action you’d normally watch Down Under.

NBA League Pass: the best way to live stream the NBA online?

As you can see, there are a number of options for streaming the NBA online. But one that keeps cropping up is NBA League Pass, the league’s official streaming service.

In the US, a yearly NBA League Pass subscription starts at $199 for coverage of every out-of-market game. But that’s an important caveat. While this represents a solid deal for fans of teams living outside their local area, fans residing in-market will find most games subject to black out restrictions – and it’s not really a viable option as a result.

The service offers a different packages for international markets, but as an example, in the UK, you can pay as little as £14.99 a month for an NBA live stream of all of your team’s game this season.

As well as the UK, NBA League Pass covers pretty much every major international market with end-to-end hoops action apart from the US and Canada – so whether you’re in Europe, South America, Asia, Oceania or anywhere else, it’s well worth looking at.

As ever, if you’re out of the country you subscribed to NBA League Pass in, it’s likely you can use a VPN to get around these restrictions. Just follow our instructions above.
