Has anyone ever made a course on Udemy?

13 replies
Just wondering if anyone has made a course on Udemy. Some of you may have watched my YouTube channel before, and I'm looking to expand to other platforms. I'm just wondering, if I carefully create a X hour series for Udemy, do they ever decline videos or topics?

      You may have time to dink around and wait for an email response (given the amount of time you spend on here), but I believe that someone here has a quicker answer.

        Sorry, I guess you are right. It is better to dink around a forum and get speculative answers than to get the absolute correct answer from the source

          I don't know where folks get the idea that all forum replies are (or will be) speculative....

          Udemy's Quality Review Process

          Submit a course for review

          In our Course Quality Checklist, we've broken down Udemy's guidelines for the individual components of an ideal Udemy course into two segments: required and recommended.

          Required items on the checklist are items that every Udemy course, obviously, must have. We’re talking about things like HD video, good audio, 5 lectures, and at least 30 minutes of video content.

          Recommended items are those that make good courses, well, great. Great courses blow students away with lots of instructor engagement, or super helpful supplemental resources or innovative approaches to presenting the material. Courses that include the recommended items really stand out and engage students.

          Best of luck!

            Because most are. Notice all your reference links point to Udemy and not some forum.
            I have seen many questions similar to this one and many different answers in each questions thread. A lot of these answers are downright wrong but yet the OP's send out thanks and get all excited because they get the answer they want to hear.

            I personally use lots of sites and tools from Aweber to Amazon Associates and a few plugins and themes and every time I have an issue I go right to the source and I always get the correct answer. And I do not feel, like the OP said, I have dinked around. I always get the right answer.

            Notice that the poster here waited over a day and what did he get from you, links to Udemy. He could have gone there in the first place instead of posting here and he would now be creating his course instead of dinking around here

              The answer is here on this thread, in this forum, benefiting Warrior Forum and Warrior Forum users.

              That's the nature of most forum discussions...nothing new here.

              Good for you. I could show you thousands upon thousands of questions in a certain photography forum that would never be answered by the manufacturer or the store that sold the gear.

              The people that want quality answers to their photography questions go to that forum knowing it is where they will get the answers from experts (and a few newbs) that use those cameras, lenses, lighting gear etc.

              And I do not feel, like the OP said, I have dinked around. I always get the right answer.
              Sure you do. I have noticed you give quite a few "this is the wrong place for your question" one line replies. Once in a while they are appropriate, but many other times they are not much more than sig spam, IMO.

              Notice that the poster here waited over a day and what did he get from you, links to Udemy. He could have gone there in the first place instead of posting here and he would now be creating his course instead of dinking around here
              But he didn't, he asked the question here hoping to get a quick answer from a warrior that is familiar with Udemy approvals. I obliged him by answering his question instead of hitting him with a terse one-liner.

              The OP is a longtime member here and I thought he deserved more than that. If a user here wants to take the time to answer a legit question, it's not really your place to begrudge the questioner.

              This forum benefits from questions and answers like this, it helps other members that are browsing or searching for Udemy info on here, and it may help WF with another decent Google rank or two as well.

              To each his own.

              Cheers

              Raise spirit Mr McCall.

              One day it has to happen. It might as well be now.

              You must not be familiar with the bureaucracy of big business and poor support. No one likes to sit on hold for 10 minutes or track down emails to be fed through FAQ systems and other gimmicks just to clutter their email with "email received," "did we resolve your question" and "rate your support experience" garbage.

              The course is done and in the second round of revisions as of 6 PM EST.

              Lighten up. Don't be so grumpy.

    I've got some courses on Udemy. As long as the audio and video quality are of a decent standard and your course is properly structured then you shouldn't have much problem getting it approved

    Although they recently changed their pricing structure. The maximum you can charge for a course is now $50. Everyone who created longer courses under the old pricing structure had to reign their prices in under $50

    Is 'x hour reference to a title you've given a personal project?

    If so, what's the content?

    I remember a few years back a few top marketers had a PLR squeeze page and Udemy report to get leads which was when I first heard about Udemy I didn't do anything with it for some reason(I guess busy with other projects and still learning lots) but I regret It now as I believe people are making good money on Udemy as I've seen some income proofs and while they can be faked I think Udemy itself is a great idea. Anyway I am getting into it big now and am planning courses on the things I know and hope do do well with them.

    Also there is a new kid on the block(and probably others, if anyone knows any please post them) which is Skillshare who is competing with Udemy. I like both platforms and will try both to kick things off.

    I also see a bunch of marketers on Udemy and Skillshare and they also launch their course as an IM product on WarriorPlus, JVZoo or Clickbank.

    Maybe one day there will be a Udemy/Skillshare Section here on warrior.

    Hi I have a few courses on Udemy. In my opinion in the early days I got a lot of traffic and subscribers so to me that was one of the benefits of putting a course on there.

    There are a few hoops to jump through and if your course gets rejected they are good at telling you what to correct.

    The big change for me is that now there are so many people submitting courses, the only way to make any sales is to promote and advertise the course yourself, so if you have to do that you may as well just host it yourself and take all the money!

    What I've learnt over the years is that so long as your product is good (and many aren't) - sales and promotion is the most important part and if you can crack that it won't matter where you host it.

    Udemy reminds me of Uber, great for the passengers. However, you do not make a lot of money. People talk about a few extra thousands per year. SADLY, even that is out of the reach of most of us. The cash keeps going down and the requirements keep going up. There is now a $50 cap. Great for people taking courses. However, if you are an instructor, that limits your income.

    Start out be creating a few free courses. Requirements are not as rigid for those ones. After a while, you will see just like me. Udemy is a lot of work and very little money.

    BTW, you can still create free courses. Those are a great way to promote your product or service.

    For example, "How to edit videos using ##### program."
