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 or more, and at least 30 minutes of video content.
Please note: free courses published after March 17, 2020 must have less than 2 hours of video content. For more information please click here.
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.
