UDEMY is running a super discount sale until January 11th at 11:59pm PST — classes that normally go for $50, $200, or even $300, are all on sale for just $10.
Since you can buy them now and take them online anytime in the future, this is when I usually stock up. As a permaculture techno-geek learning junkie, I’m always looking for leading information on how to develop and make everything from an Arduino based hydroponic system, to a chicken coop for backyard chickens, or an iOS app for my iPhone… or……..
If you’re wondering if I actually use Udemy, I have 8 classes in my current queue, and 24 classes in my permanent library. Current queue includes Offgrid Solar Power Systems Design 101, Beginner Canon SLR, iMovie Intermediate, Bio-Organic Farming, and Learning Windows Powershell. If you’re looking for a good beginner Arduino course, my uncle and I took Arduino Step by Step: Your Complete Guide, and really learned a lot.
All of these classes have sample lectures you can preview, and there are around 17,000 classes on sale. Here are some examples from the Health and Fitness category.
Udemy has a huge assortment of tech classes that include virtually every kind of development language, website design, CMS, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Photoshop, you name it. Most categories have classes ranging from beginner to advanced, and normally the classes range from 30 minutes up to 30 hours in lectures.
They don’t have a huge selection of permaculture related courses, but it’s big enough and seems to be growing every day. There are classes on backyard chickens, bio-dynamic gardening, designing and growing a food forest, herb gardens, composting and soil creation, and many more.
What’s really great about the classes I’ve taken is that the instructors keep updating the material and providing more downloads, links to forums, etc. You can always go back to watch them as many times as you’d like, which is extremely helpful when you’re learning something technical like intermediate java development, Arduino, or WordPress.
I hope you enjoy your classes and I’m always looking for recommendations for what to take next. Please leave comments on any recommended classes from Udemy!
