Confirmed: Udemy’s Black Friday BOGO Sale
BOGO stands for “Buy One Get One” free!
This sale is confirmed, the terms and conditions came to me in an email this morning. This promo is the lowest price they’ve ever offered through Udemy because you’ll get both classes for $9.99… so naturally, we’re planning ahead!! In short, you have to BUY a course through Udemy on Black Friday, and you’ll get a credit for a free course that you then must redeem on Cyber Monday (Nov 26). Limit 1 per person.
Black Friday is Friday, November 23, 2018
Udemy offers 2,500 classes, so it takes some time to develop a list. There are specific things I look for first: instructor bio, number of students who have taken the class, feedback rating for the instructor and the class, number of hours of content, etc. Once I find classes that are good candidates, I make sure you can build a good high school class from it and that there is a credit exam that aligns well-enough to make it worth your time. In other words, if I wouldn’t use it for my kids, it’s not going on the list. I am acting on the assumption that all of the classes will be part of the sale, however, last year some of the classes were NOT part of the sale- but we won’t know that in advance.
Terms and Conditions: Buy one for Black Friday (11/22 – 11/23), Get one FREE for Cyber Monday (11/26 – 11/27)*
Overview: Udemy courses never expire and are self-paced, online, and vary in quality by the instructor. You can get a series or just one class, it’s up to you. As an example, we bought all levels of Spanish from the instructor that we like (Hanley- you’ll see it below) It will take my son several years to work through all the levels, but they never expire, so they are in my account forever!
High School / College Credit: Udemy courses are curriculum only, so you’ll issue high school credit on your homeschool transcript but you’ll have to get creative to use these for college credit. In our case (Spanish) they are part of my multi-year plan working toward the Spanish CLEP exam – so this is to emphasize that Udemy doesn’t count directly as college credit, you’ll need to roll these into one of your college credit programs at home. (Chapter 2 of Homeschooling for College Credit for help.)
Tip: when searching UDemy, always use their “sort” filter and select “highest rated.”
