Udemy is a glorious website whose notability is often spoken about. The quality of courses listed on this online marketplace and the standard of teaching are second to none. Instructors are extremely talented and certified subject matter experts. If one is conscious of starting such an online marketplace, one has to consider various factors such as immense bandwidth, dedicated instructor dashboards, online chat collaboration tools, safe and secure online payment gateways etc. in these elearning development companies. Also, the trajectory of reviews and feedback from participants should exponentially grow.
I do not think many websites other than a few elite ones, that are very good themselves with the listing, organizing, scheduling of new courses, are in the same class as Udemy in this aspect. Here is a brief run-down on 10 best sites like Udemy:
The moment you visit edX, there is an unmissable sentence that conveys the complete gist of this meritorious website: Take great online courses from the world’s best universities. Quite evidently, this reputed online marketplace features courses from the most prestigious universities such as Harvard, MIT, Berkeley etc. Most of the courses are available at too insignificant prices. However, after the completion of the entire course, if you intend to receive a verified certificate, you have to shell out a few bucks. From medicine to molecular biology, you are at liberty to choose and learn anything. And yes, you can decide the language of the course (from the available list of languages) as well. This is one of the reputed platforms because it is as good as the Udemy clone script.
Truth is spoken, Coursera does not feature as many courses as Udemy does. However, it does feature a good number of courses all taught by top educational institutions and celebrated universities. More often than not, courses in Coursera can be audited. To receive a certificate of achievement, one has to take an exam, pay some fee and subsequently get some good grades. This online learning software is still a preferred choice by many.
The list is incomplete without the mention of Udacity. in e-learning development companies. Just like Coursera, it combines free and premium courses. While Udemy is known to offer quite a huge number of courses, Udacity offers a few above 100 free courses. Also, it offers a few Nanodegree course packages that come with certain training credits. Technical courses are designed in a systematic manner. You can begin the course as an amateur, gain expertise and transform into an ace expert. You can register either as an instructor or as a participant.
Lynda.com is another educational marketplace that covers various courses on Software Development, Design, Web Development, Business and Project Management, Photography etc. As far as Software Development discipline is concerned, there are over 400 courses. While there are 600 courses pertaining to Design discipline, there are over 900 courses pertaining to Business and Project Management discipline. It is noteworthy to mention that this online educational marketplace hosts more than 1700 courses in Photography discipline. All in all, Lynda.com hosts more than 80000 videos!
As the name suggests, Skillshare is a community educational marketplace where you can enhance your skillset and fine-tune your existing skills. There is something endearing to Skillshare- Apart from offering a wide variety of videos, it conducts in-person workshops in cities such as San Francisco and New York. Most of the beginner and intermediate level courses are tagged at $20-$30 range. There is no need of any membership to access beginner and intermediate level courses and is similar to the Udemy Clone Script. However, to access top classes taught by industry experts, one needs to have a Skillshare membership. The membership cost is an affordable $9.95 per month. This membership cost provides 20 percent waiver on all the classes listed on the website.
Khan Academy is quite different from the aforementioned online educational marketplaces. Khan Academy offers a wide variety of ‘micro- video lectures’ on diverse disciplines such as math, economics, finance, humanities, science, and computer programming. All the videos are free on this online learning software. Most of the stuff that Khan Academy provides is basic and foundational. As experts say, it is important to get your foundations right, enroll yourself in Khan Academy to get your foundations not only right but also strong.
Codecademy was once backed by the most powerful workplace- The White House. People interested in mastering the finer nuances of computer programming can access online coding courses hosted on this educational marketplace. There is a dedicated gamified points system that continuously motivates learners to complete courses. Codecademy offers courses on a number of languages such as PHP, Python, Ruby, Java, Enterprise Java, C, C++, Database management, etc. By the time students finish their courses, they will have finished quite a few projects.
This online educational marketplace has enough tools that enable you to add certificates, quizzes, videos, transcripts to your already existing documents and presentations. ProProfs asserts that it has more than a million users. If you have enough expertise in any subject/ discipline, register as a tutor and target a good chunk of this online marketplace’s audiences. If you commit to a year, the monthly package is $60. Otherwise, the monthly package is around $75 (This price is subject to change).
This is an all-in-one online educational marketplace that lets you market and subsequently sell your courses at various price ranges for you elearning development companies. There is a starter plan and a monthly plan. If you wish to opt for the latter, you can get your transaction fees to almost zilch. On the other hand, the starter plan also seems to be quite genuine. You need to pay a flat 10% fee on all transactions pertaining to your courses. You can leverage this platform for creating and delivering content.
This Portland based online educational platform was founded in 2011. This platform primarily concentrates on buying and selling SCROM e-learning courses pertaining to employee training.
