Online Education Steps Up: What the World is Learning (from Home)

 

Although this report focuses on online learning
trends emerging during the COVID-19
pandemic from the last two months, we believe
that it also may provide a preview of more
lasting changes in the ways we work and learn.

Key Findings

  • There are spikes in Udemy enrollments (425% overall increase), course creation (55%), and
    Udemy for Business consumption (80%) as people are required to shelter in place and are
    turning to online learning to help them remain engaged and active in school, work, and life.
  • Online learning enrollments have significantly increased all over the world with surges in
    Spain (280% increase), India (200% increase), and Italy (320% increase) after shelterin-place orders took effect.
  • In addition to strong growth in technical categories like Web Development (60% increase)
    and Data Science (58% increase), online learning is increasingly being used for lifestyle
    and health support, with courses on Pilates (402% increase) and Meditation (111%)
    surging.
  • There is increased interest in online courses to feed personal interests and new hobbies,
    such as Ukulele (292%) and Technical Drawing (920%). Demand for particular online
    learning topics also varies by country/geographic area, such as Communication Skills in
    India (606% increase) and Piano in Spain (466%).


Learning Trends
Perhaps unsurprisingly, as people are looking for ways to be productive while sheltering in
place, we’re seeing a surge in online learning enrollments for individual learners across the
entire Udemy marketplace. In addition, people may be proactively looking to upskill or
reskill in response to the uncertain economic situation.


In these times of challenge and change, Udemy’s mission to improve lives through learning
is more vital than ever. We remain committed to being a learning partner for every phase
of life, providing people around the world affordable access to the skills needed to meet the
demands of our changing world.

Fascinating.

 

And, @LawrenceMMiller , since we're both in the leadership arena, maybe we should have courses on

  • "How to lead with your Ukulele"
  • "Leadership communications with technical drawings" and
  • "Improve workplace productivity with mediatation and pilates sessions"

😉

What do you think?
