April 10, 2019

SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Apr 10, 2019--Udemy, the global marketplace for learning and teaching online, announced today the launch of its corporate learning product, Udemy for Business, in Spain. In addition to a fully localized product experience, a new collection of courses in Spanish is designed to enable teams and companies drive more impactful learning through a curated selection of the top technical and business skills.

“Many of our Spanish-speaking customers have expressed demand for our courses taught by instructors in their native language,” said Darren Shimkus, President of Udemy for Business. “The investments we’re making to empower global teams to deliver impactful learning go above and beyond traditional content dubbing and video captions. As a result, our Spanish-speaking customers have been delighted to see increased learner engagement and adoption of their Udemy for Business accounts.”
