While Udacity is the company who gets the big press about MOOCs, Udemy, with their one-to-one, asynchronous, fee-based learning focuses on skills people need, and they (as well as the instructors) get paid. It seems they are growing much faster than those getting press attention. “The company has also announced a few growth metrics that seem to indicate that its educational programs have mass appeal. Specifically, Udemy has seen 300 percent revenue growth in the past 12 months, but didn’t provide specific dollar figures. Additionally, it says that student course enrollments grew more than 400 percent in the same time frame.”
