Ever fancy yourself a teacher? Itching to share your expertise with the world? Startup Udemy (Academy of You) offers a simple-to-use online course publishing tool.
With Udemy, you can find or create a course on just about anything. Just choose from one of eleven course categories, from academic to hobbies and crafts. Creating a course is free and easy—in less than 5 minutes, you are ready to go.
Course publishers have some really cool tools at their disposal:
- Content Platform: Publish videos, presentations, and articles and use their new presentation/video mashup tool
- Live Virtual Classes: Interact live with instructors through Udemy Live! You’ll have access to presentation-sharing, multiple live videos, chat rooms and whiteboarding tools.
- Broaden Your Audience: Marketing, PR, and SEO are integrated to ensure you reach your audience via Facebook, Twitter, and blogs.
Udemy also brings together the best teachers on the internet in an effort to educate the world. Over 2,000 instructors have built 3,500 courses since they launched in May 2010. If you want to learn calculus, Photoshop, or how to play blackjack, you can. They will be one of nearly 30 startups showcased our SXSW Accelerator Kickoff on Sunday, so stop by and say hi.
