Hello instructors,


Did you know that 9% of learning now happens in the background — a sign that audio learning may be on the rise?


To stay on top of this trend, we have some exciting news — CarPlay is now available for the Udemy iOS app.


When learners sync their iOS device in vehicles with CarPlay, they’ll be able to safely and seamlessly stream or listen to downloaded audio content from your courses. The audio-focused experience is perfect for absorbing or reinforcing learning in a driving environment.


Key learner benefits include:

  • Hands-free voice command and steering wheel controls for safer learning
  • The ability to automatically skip non-audio content, and return to it when not driving
  • The end of Bluetooth pairing issues


Update your Udemy app to try CarPlay and help share the news with your learners by making an announcement. We’ll keep you posted on learner engagement with this feature to help you design or update your courses.


P.S. We are also working on rolling out a similar feature for Android learners. Stay tuned!
