Gagan Biyani of

In this interview I talked to Gagan Biyani, Co-Founder of – the Academy of You.

Udemy provides teachers, tutors or any other sort of educator with a fully functional online school that can be set up in a couple of minutes. In the interview Gagan tells how he met his co-founders, what drives him and the team and he also gives us a presentation of the platform.

Udemy believes that teachers should also be able to teach their audience when they are not available live. Therefore the platform developed some great tools to deliver engaging asynchronous content for learners.
