Udemy Partners with Hootsuite to Expand Course Offerings for Organizations

Udemy announced that it has partnered with Hootsuite, the world's most widely used social relationship platform, to expand its social media marketing course offerings on its corporate learning platform, Udemy for Organizations (UFO), which is also available in the general marketplace. UFO now offers more than 80 marketing courses, including social media marketing, search marketing, email marketing, data and optimization and many others. The additions come as marketers are under increasing pressure to perform within their organizations. A recent Deloitte survey notes that 53% of digital marketers have reported greater revenue growth responsibility within their organizations. Udemy launched UFO last year as a comprehensive and highly customizable corporate learning suite. Through UFO, organizations can purchase subscriptions to a suite of over 700 of Udemy's best courses for their entire teams. Companies can also create their own proprietary training courses with Udemy's course-building technology. Thousands of companies worldwide now use UFO for their corporate training needs, including 1-800-Flowers, Oracle and Ampush.
