what is the name of the economy course you took? I am interested in taking some courses as well. thanksMyUsernameDoesntMatter wrote: ↑ As someone who's used Udemy I'd like to mention a few things. The courses are almost always marked down. This deal might be slightly lower but not by much for most courses. Also the courses can be hit and miss. I had a course where the creator actually engaged people regularly and was available the entire time (it makes economic sense in some countries to give this type of availability). I also had courses where they were put together really badly and I felt learning the course that way actually caused me more issues long term trying to correct misconceptions that stuck in my mind.

No economy course. What I meant was in some countries devoting a lot of time to courses can be beneficial. For example in the west if you make a course and sell it for $12 how do you profit if you want $25 an hour? If it took you say 100 hours to develop or longer you'd need to sell at least 350 times just to break even after udemy cut etc. To continually sustain it would take even more. In say India for example where the wage is much lower it makes much more economic sense for someone whom develops a course to be more invested in it as there is a larger upside to them as it is more competitive in relation to local wages. Someone there may be happy at say 2.50 an hour for example. For a Canadian to give even 30 minutes of support is pretty much a loss. While someone in India they feel a benefit from supporting the course on an ongoing basis. Same time though there are some really bad courses as well due to the relative low cost of them. It all depends.

I personally find Pluralsight very good compare to Lynda. No doubt Lynda is free via most public library. But if you want quality content I find Pluralsight well worth it.
