Udemy.com as we all know is a premium site where you can take any course on almost every subject matter in the world. Established in 2009, Udemy has provided many with free and paid courses at very cheap prices that you probably cannot get elsewhere.
The problem with Udemy however, is that when one wants to have access to the tutorials he bought or to free tutorials offline, he finds it hard to do so. Especially when he or she is browsing with a laptop.
Udemy however has a mobile application that is available for both android and iOS respectively. This mobile application has a feature that allows users to save videos so as to watch them in offline mode. But the problem with it is that the saved videos are not available in the gallery as they found a way of hiding them.
This is a very huge problem for people who wish to share such videos with family members and colleagues at the workplace. Although some Udemy videos have links to download on the dashboard if the author wishes to allow viewers download it, it is somehow tiring to do that and most premium videos do not have this feature enabled.
In this tutorial, we would be looking at the various ways of downloading Udemy videos in parts and in bulk. Some of the tools we would discuss are free, premium and some have free trial periods. They are all tested and confirmed to be working and so, it is left for you to choose the one that best suits what you want and go for it.
