Online learning platform Udemy releases iPad app

Udemy, the largest marketplace for online courses,  has launched its own iPad app that aims to give students an easier way to learn skills wherever they go.

“The future of learning is mobile and the iPad is the perfect lifelong learning device,” said Eren Bali, CEO and co-founder of Udemy in a prepared statement. “Udemy students are extremely active and want access to learning regardless of time or location. The app builds on Udemy’s promise of connecting students with the world’s experts by turning idle time into a learning opportunity.”

Notable iPad app features include:

— Watch on the go: Access to all video and audio lectures, presentations and any other course materials right from the app.
