Previous Udemy users
If you have used Udemy before, the Gale Presents platform for Udemy Business will not re-connect you to your previous user account. Udemy Business and regular Udemy personal accounts are completely separate and will have separate learning pathways and histories.
Gale Presents: Udemy accounts are supported in the Udemy Business mobile app (Apple App, Android). The site works well in a web browser without the app, but in the app you can download lessons for offline playback.
In your app store, find Udemy Business and install. When you open the app, you are prompted to fill in an organization name in a blank; fill in "gale" so that the organization's account name appears as "gale.udemy.com" and then tap Next. Select the public library organization type, and search using knox as your word. Select Knox County Public Library. Respond to prompts for your library card number and password, if shown.
Read about Register an account, above. If you are connecting to an account you already created through Gale Presents: Udemy, continue as usual. Otherwise, register a Udemy account (scroll to the bottom for the "sign up" link) and verify your email address.
