Teacher Appreciation Week: Thank You Udemy Instructors!

In the United States, May 4th – May 8th is Teacher Appreciation Week.  Even though here at Udemy we feel that every week is Teacher Appreciation Week, we wanted to do a special surprise for the worldwide community of instructors who are changing the world with their teaching. Take a look at the video below to hear directly from the students who you’ve inspired, encouraged, and motivated to move forward in their careers and their lives.

Udemy students learn from all over the world and in many different languages.  Below, we’ve highlighted a few of the students who were so generous in sharing their stories about how their Udemy instructors have changed their lives.
