Udemy, a leading destination for learning and teaching online, recently announced the launch of Hindi courses to its Udemy Business International Collection (IC), offering critical business and technical courses taught by real-world experts in their native language.
Through the IC, Udemy Business Enterprise Plan customers have access to more than 12,000 courses in 14 languages, including Hindi which is spoken by 43.6% of Indians or 52.83 crore people as per the Census of India 2011. These courses span a wide variety of categories such as Leadership & Management, Data Science, Sales, IT Operations, Cloud Computing, Finance & Accounting, Marketing and Personal Development, according to an official statement.
The IC is a set of proven courses carefully curated from the Udemy marketplace and taught by native-speaking, subject-matter experts who incorporate cultural nuances in their courses, making them more relevant to learners. The collection goes beyond the traditional approach of content dubbing and video captions of English language courses, optimizing quality and authenticity. With rising turnover and continued automation, there is a drive for flexible online training solutions to meet the growing demand from organizations and professionals. Adding courses in local languages on Udemy Business enables companies to keep pace with the need to upskill and reskill employees in the language they desire, the statement further added.
Commenting on the latest development, Country Head, India and South Asia, Udemy Business, Vinay Pradhan, said:
Udemy has long provided the industry’s largest collection of local-language courses created by local experts. There will be accelerated change in the workplace which will require individuals to continually upskill and reskill. Closing skills gaps in today’s uncertain global economy is necessary for organizations to stay competitive. Language should not act as a barrier for learning, which is why we provide truly localized learning experiences to thousands of companies across Asia-Pacific.
Some of the courses Udemy Business offers in Hindi include Python for Beginners – Learn Python Programming, Understand Manufacturing Drawing Quick & Correct, Introduction To SEO Based Content Writing, Data Analyst Skill Path and Technical Analysis: Harmonic Chart Patterns & Stock Trading.
