Accessing and reviewing your student list is an effective way to monitor the course progress of your students, and their correspondence history with you and the course. Each student list includes information about a student’s course consumption, questions they’ve asked or had answered, and when an instructor has corresponded with them.
How to Access Your Student List
You can access the student list via your Instructor Dashboard by following these steps:
- Click on Instructor at the top right of the page, and select Instructor Dashboard from the dropdown menu
- On the Instructor Dashboard, move your cursor to the Total Students box on the course icon
- Click on Go to Student List
You can also access the student list by clicking on Students on the left hand side of the Course Management page.
Student List Information
The student list for your course includes the following information (Note: See below for more information available when using the Export as CSV feature):
Name: The user name the student has selected for their Udemy account
Enrolled: The date the student enrolled in your course
Progress: The percentage of the course content a student has completed, and provides an overall picture of their engagement in your course
Last Visited: The last date the student accessed and consumed content from the course. This will help you determine whether a student has been active in your your course recently or not.
Questions Asked: this total indicates how many questions a student has asked in the Q&A, and helps demonstrate which students may require more assistance
Questions Answered: this number shows how many questions a student has answered in the Q&A, and helps identify students who are highly engaged in the course
Last Messaged: the date posted here indicates the last time you’ve sent a message to a student, and will help you gauge whether you need to follow up with them or not.
Message: by clicking on this icon you will be directed to the Messages page, where you can write a new direct message for that student. The messaging tool will automatically add the student’s name as the recipient.
Our rules and guidelines for messaging students can be found here.
Export as CSV
Student list data is also available for Export to CSV. Click the Export as CSV button to automatically receive an email with a CSV spreadsheet file containing your Student List data.
The following columns of Student List data display only when the Export as CSV feature is used:
Started Date: The date that students began viewing the course material (please note: this may be different from the Enrollment Date)
Lecture Last Viewed: The video lecture that the student last visited in the course. This provides context about what a student last reviewed in your course, and can help you engage with them more effectively.
Udemy for Business: A column in the CSV titled Udemy for Business (UFB) will indicate whether the student enrolled via the UFB content subscription program (Note: This information is also shown in the Student List web view, indicated by a “Udemy for Business” tag next to the Student Name).
