In addition to taking your Udemy courses on your computer or mobile device, you can watch and progress through them via Apple TV. Through Udemy’s Apple TV app, not only can you take your courses on a big screen TV, you can also search for, wishlist and purchase new courses.
Please note: only the 4th generation or later versions of Apple TV support the Udemy app.
Download the Apple TV App
You can download and access the Udemy Apple TV app by following these steps:
- Log into Apple TV
- Select “App Store”
- Go to “Categories”, click on “Education” and browse for Udemy.
- You can also find the Udemy app by utilizing the “Search” function in the App Store.
If you already have a Udemy account, and the Udemy iOS app downloaded to your smartphone or tablet, then you can quickly login by using the “one-tap sign-in” option. Just open the app on your mobile device, and the option to sign-in into the Apple TV app will appear on your television. Your mobile device and Apple TV need to be on the same Wifi network.
You can also access your courses by logging in with your Udemy account email and password, by clicking on “sign in with email”.
All of the Udemy courses you’ve purchased to date will be accessible by clicking on “My Courses”.
If you don’t have a Udemy account yet, then you can create one by clicking on “Create an Account”. There’s also an option to browse the Udemy marketplace without logging in or creating an account.
Watch Your Course
To start learning with your Apple TV, simply click on the course you wish to watch under “My Courses”.
Please note that only video and audio lectures can be taken via the Apple TV app. Non-video based lectures, practice activities and downloadable resources can be accessed on your computer and mobile device, and are highlighted in gray to indicate they are unavailable on the Udemy Apple TV app.
Purchased courses and course progress also sync with your desktop and mobile devices.
Search and Purchase New Courses
Like Udemy's website or mobile app, you can search for new courses on the Apple TV App, and even preview videos on the course landing pages. You can also see the rating and number of reviews for each course on the television. The full reviews that appear on the course landing page at Udemy.com, however, can only be seen on your computer.
You can purchase courses you like on Apple TV using the credit card information associated with your Apple Pay or Apple App Store account. Please note that Apple’s purchase and refund policies will apply to these transactions. For more information regarding this, please click here.
If you find courses you’re interested in taking, but would like to purchase them at a later date, you can add them to your “Wishlist”.
Options For Android Devices
Although Apple TV is only compatible with iOS devices, Android devices can use chromecast enabled devices to cast lectures to TVs. For additional information on how to cast Udemy courses via your mobile device, please click here.
