    Introducing a Better Course Selection Experience

     In order to create the best course selection experience, we recently redesigned our course landing pages (CLP) for learners. The CLP is a key page to help people determine whether a course is the right fit. Today, we’re excited to announce that our updated design is now live on all course selection pages. This fresh, new look makes the functionality and design of our course selection experience easier and better.

    What changed? The new upgrades include:

    • Highlighted course goals and a streamlined curriculum design to help quickly understand whether the topics you’re looking for are included in a course

    • We know you care about who you’re learning from and why they’re qualified, so we’re highlighting instructor profiles more prominently

    • An updated algorithm to show more relevant course reviews and ensure people have the best information to select the course that's right for them

    Check out the new design today by logging into your Udemy for Business account!

     Introducing the Ability to Bulk Import Users

    • Bulk update the group(s) that users belong to
