The Association for Talent Development (ATD) Golden Gate Chapter was at Udemy headquarters yesterday creating a ton of Udemy courses for their chapter members. The ATD is the largest corporate training and skills development organization in the United States. The Golden Gate ATD chapter uses Udemy’s corporate learning platform, Udemy for Organizations, as their portal for members to create courses
During the course-a-thon, about 20 chapter members were working on a number of courses related to ATD membership, including content on why members should join the chapter and how members could get the most out of their membership. Members are also working on a unique section of their portal that will allow members to upload and house portfolios of their work, such as presentations they have created and programs they have designed, which members could share with potential employers when applying for jobs.
Paul Anjeski, president elect of the ATD Golden Gate Chapter, was particularly excited for this event because it gave members a chance to collaborate and receive some hands-on support as they created courses. He is excited to share how his chapter is using Udemy with his broader organization, with the goal of enabling other chapters to replicate what has worked for the Golden Gate Chapter.
Anjeski said: “For a group of learning professionals who really want to understand the capabilities of asynchronous learning, Udemy is a great place to start.”
