Silicon Valley graduate Udemy has had unprecedented success since their launch in 2009. Now, shortly after raising their $12M series B, the online learning platform has partnered with TechCrunch to launch CrunchU - a collection of tech focused e-courses.
CrunchU is available exclusively to TechCrunch readers and will be tailored to the preferences of their audience. According to TechCrunch, “Our plan is to introduce new courses each quarter, based on what we learn about TechCrunch readers’ likes and dislikes. We also have the option of creating courses on our own, with the help of Udemy’s awesome course-creation tools. If you have an idea for a course, or want to teach one yourself, learn more here”.
To celebrate the launch, courses on CrunchU will be available to TC readers at 50% off until May 18th. Click here to start browsing the CrunchU catalogue and take advantage of TechCrunch's introductory offer.
The CrunchU initial course line-up includes offerings from TechCrunch friends, like Eric Ries on “The Lean Startup,” as well as experts Gagan Biyani on “Introduction to Growth Hacking” and Russ Fradin on “Startup Hiring.”
