I’ve been using Udemy for a couple of months now, and it has been incredible. I am a vocalist and I have bought courses on confidence, stage presence, and vocal technique and it has been great. I’m learning every time I open the app and it’s only $12 for a TON of information. The past couple of weeks, udemy has been slower and lagging a lot, and wrote to the udemy team for help, and it was fixed overnight. Amazing- thank you for helping me grow!
A note to the developer: You need to handle when your app is suspended or paused in the middle of a video. The app does not respond after it is suspended (and sometimes after the video is paused for a while even) and a user goes to another app. The app has to be restarted in order to work. It is a very frustrating UX experience. Fortunately for me, the iPad I am using is a relatively recent model so that process is quite fast, but the video buttons not responding after the app is paused is really a nuisance. Please fix it. Otherwise I would rate this 5 stars. It’s a shame because Udemy has a great library of courses that I use quite often, only for the high regards I have for Udemy to be diminished due to the quality of the iOS app.
I paid for a course Udemy took my money and my account got disabled as a first time signing up my experience was extremely bad.
Video player in the most recent version is very buggy on my iPhone X Max: - Audio cuts off at times (but video continues) - Audio becomes out of sync at times and sometimes the video will play very fast to catch-up with the audio - The lesson abruptly ends towards the end and moves on to the next lesson (you end up missing the last 10 to 30 seconds of the lesson) - Once paused the Video won’t resume. Pressing play on the center of the video does nothing. I haven’t watched Udemy for a few months. It used to work great and I didn’t have any one of these problems.
I’ve tried on a iPad and computer, the free filter isn’t working.
Good app, but needs a bookmarks feature like the web version
The controls to resize the screen and make the sidebar go away only work about half the time. The pause/play button also takes several tries to make it work. So when I do labs (which requires pausing the video often), I end up having to restart the app several times. I’ve even had to restart my iPad when the Udemy app has crashed. The captions are so poor as to render this course unusable for anyone who is deaf or severely hard-of-hearing. I’m a little hard-of-hearing, and sometimes I simply have to replay until I can figure out the words because the captions are no use... This is prejudiced against the disabled, particularly against disabled veterans, who have a high rate of hearing loss.
Completed a course, no certificate even after paying the full amount. No response from customer support, some bugs regarding payment .. overall very bad compared to other online courses !!
Please Please Please bring back the Memorial Day Sale! I have a variety of courses saved in my wishlist (quite alot) and I’d like to purchase them all! We still have a few days until MEM DAY WEEKEND. Please consider bringing it back! Thank u.
The instructors are terrible teachers. They assume you have already mastered classes they are teaching. That’s teaching 101. I would advise against it, unless you already know what they’re teaching. Which makes the classes pointless.
