Udemy Calculus versus Distance CalculusUdemy is a paid online course resources provider, kind of like Khan Academy, but geared towards a paid model where you gain access to their "courses" by paying either an indivual fee per "course", or paying a subscription to gain access to all of their courses.
Udemy Calculus offerings may be a nice addition to taking a Calculus course online - more videos from different authors are sometimes a good way to get more course material to help you study, especially the big topics in Calculus that require significant study.
However, Udemy does not provide accredited, transferrable Calculus credits for its "courses". So, there is not really any comparison between Udemy and Distance Calculus, if you seek actual collegiate credits for calculus courses.

Distance Calculus - Student Reviews

Courses Completed: Calculus I
Review: This course is amazing! I took it as a requirement for admission to an MBA program, and couldn't have been happier with the quality and rigor of the course. I previously took calculus two times (at a public high school and then a large public university commonly cited as a "public ivy"), this course was by far the best and *finally* made the concepts click. Previously I had no idea what was going on because terrible PhD students were teaching the course and saying stuff like "a derivative is the slope of a tangent line" - ??? but what does that mean ???, but the instructors in the Shorter University course explain everything in ways where it FINALLY made sense (e.g., "imagine a roller coaster hitting the top of a hill, there's a moment where it shifts momentum and you're not accelerating or decelerating, that's what a 0 rate of change is - that's when the derivative would be zero"). They explain everything in multiple ways and relate it to other concepts. It all made perfect sense when I finally had a good instructor. Really recommend this class

Review: Probability Theory was a great course. Very very thorough. I thought it would never end :). I was very prepared for my coursework in economics. Excellent refereshher of derivatives and integrals - really forced me to remember that stuff from freshman cal.
