Instructors have the ability to make courses private. When a course is set to private, it cannot be discovered in the Udemy marketplace, so instructors must personally share the course link with potential students. To gain access to the course, the student will need to enter a password, or request access to it.
How to Change Course Privacy Settings
- Navigate to to the course curriculum from the Instructor Dashboard
- Click on the course settings gear icon at the top right
- Toggle the setting from Public to either Private (Invitation Only) or Private (Password Protected)
- If you select Password Protected, enter a password in the box below
- Click Save
Types of Privacy
If you have created an instructor coupon code, students must enter the code manually once you have granted them permission. You will not receive the appropriate revenue share if the coupon code is not applied.
If you are using instructor coupon codes, it is recommended that you protect your course with a password to avoid confusion.
