21 months have gone by since our last report on how much top course creators on the online learning platform can make. That definitely qualifies for an update as Udemy shared new data on its course creator earnings.
At the time of our first post, Udemy’s Top 10 course creators had earned a combined $5 million with the top person having made $450k over the course of two years.
Coursmos, a learning platform offering micro-learning courses for the “generation distracted”, raises $530k from Russian VC Imperius Group and an undisclosed angel investor. The startup previously raised $310k from Happy Farm Business Incubator and a group of angels.
Delhi-based Pathfinder Publishing has raised an undisclosed amount of angel investment from a group of five business angels for its higher education and career counseling portal Careers360.
The round was led by Ranjan Pai of Manipal Group with participation of Satya Narayanan of Career Launcher, Mahesh Murthy of Pinstorm and two other undisclosed financial investors. The startup received initial investment from Netcore founder Rajesh Jain.
Skillshare, a marketplace for interactive online classes raised a $6.1 million Venture Round co-led by Union Square Ventures and Spark Capital bringing the total funding raised to $10 million.
The new funding is going to be used to build a more social experience by connecting students and teachers through activity feeds and other features.
