    Product release: Improvements to Admin reporting

    We're excited to share recent improvements made to Enterprise account reporting, all focused on making it easier for you to get the information you need quickly. Learn more about reporting here

    • Group membership: You can now view what groups your employees are part of when you run data export reports.
    • Delete reports: You now have the ability to delete historical reports generated.
    • Date first completed: We've added a new column to data export reports — including user activity and course activity — to reflect when employees first completed a course in its entirety. This will record the date the course was first completed; if an instructor adds new content to a course your employees have already completed, the date and time stamp won't be lost.

    Join us on Wednesday, June 6, at 10 a.m. PST for a vibrant discussion focused on employee behavior change. Uli Heitzlhofer, Director of People & Learning Development at Lyft, and Shelley Osbourne, Head of L&D at Udemy, will share innovative ways they’re redesigning their learning programs to influence employee behavior. You’ll learn 5 real-world examples of L&D programs in the workplace that build in behavior change post-training.

    Making it Easier and Faster for Users to Find Courses by Topic

    It’s our goal to ensure that every user is able to discover content exactly when they need it. We’ve improved our search functionality to support topic-based search.

    Topic-based filters will help your users better find the right course by associating specific search results with other related topics. For example, searching for ‘Excel’ will surface related courses on topics like ‘pivot tables’ and ‘macros’.

    Understand What and how Individual Users are Learning

You can also sort by course and course progress by clicking the Course, Last Active and Course Progress arrows at the top of the screen.

    In Beta now: English Captions and Learning Localization

    At Udemy it is our mission to help employees do whatever comes next. That’s why we're excited to announce the availability of English Captions (in beta) for a select group of courses on Udemy for Business.

    Users will now be able to turn captions on for any of the courses in our collection that have English captions available (see list below). English Captions improve the digital learning experience for users that don’t consider English as their native language, for users that may learn better with the aid of on screen text or for users with any hearing-impairment. Over the next few months we’ll be adding even more learning localization features.

    This is just the first step towards creating a more accessible and engaging learning experience for all users, everywhere. You can view the English captions-enabled courses on Udemy for Business here.

    Submit a course request form to:

    • Suggest a specific course: Did you discover a great new course on udemy.com that isn't available in your business account? Submit a request.

    • Suggest a general topic: If you don't have a specific course in mind, you can still submit a request if you'd like to see us add new content in a topic area (e.g. Managing Difficult Conversations, or Splunk).

    Our Content Team will review all requests and respond within 1-2 weeks. Submissions will be based on a number of criteria, including course ratings, user engagement, and demand. If your course is approved, it will be added into our collection.
