Online Course Fan Stories: Udacity Digital Marketing Nanodegree Review (Episode #5 with Manon)

In this episode of “Online Course Fan Stories“, Manon shares why she recommends the online course: Become a Digital Marketer, a Nanodegree program by Udacity.

Hi, my name is Manon. I’m Creator and Community Partnerships Manager at TikTok Germany and I love online courses.

Why are you a fan of online courses?

Online courses are great because you can learn a new skill in a relatively short amount of time with little to no financial investment. You can learn from the comfort of your home at your own pace without worrying to get to a place before or after work. It’s a huge advantage if you’re already working full time – you still walk out with a degree at the end.

What’s an online course you have taken before that you would recommend?

I took the Digital Marketing Nanodegree by Udacity because I wanted to advance my career as a freelance writer at the time. I can recommend this course to you if you want to start a career in online marketing or if you’re looking for a career change into that direction.

The course taught me all the basics without being too basic but too theoretical. What I particularly liked about this course was that you get assignments that you have to complete by a certain deadline. The assignments are taken from real world marketing problems and are reviewed by marketing professionals – this way you can test your knowledge and get a chance to improve yourself. This was my favorite part of the course and why I would recommend it.

Right after completing it I was able to find jobs in the marketing world and to actively put my skills to use. The course also gave me the confidence to believe that I could advance in the field as it comes with the community around it and a lot of encouragement. I can honestly recommend this course to you if you want to kickstart your career in digital marketing.
