On the Overview tab, instructors can review their performance via several metrics, including course revenue, student enrollments and course ratings. This article outlines how instructors can access these metrics, and leverage the data to make improvements to their courses.
How to Navigate to Your Overview Tab
To navigate to the Overview tab in your account follow the steps below:
- From the dropdown menu at the top right of the page, click Instructor Dashboard
- Click Performance on the left hand side
- Next, click on Overview
You can select which specific metric you wish to view on the trend graph by clicking on the applicable title. By using the course filter in combination, you can also access key, trending, insights on a course-by-course basis. In addition, you can narrow or expand the timeline of the data by using the date range filter (all time, last 7 days, last 30 days, or last 12 months).
Total Revenue: review both the all-time and monthly revenue for all of your courses, or on a course-by-course basis
Total Enrollments: see the total number of enrollments across both your published or unpublished courses (note that if a student is enrolled in more than one of your courses, each enrollment will count towards the total). Or, select a particular course to view the number of enrollments for that specific course.
If you have not been granted permission as a co-instructor to access the Performance metrics of a particular course, then the enrollments from that course will not appear in your student total.
Current Rating: check the average rating for your courses or an individual course from a recent, rolling period. The average rating is calculated by considering factors like the recency of the rating and the amount of the course that the student consumed before leaving their rating.
Leveraging Your Overview Data
You can combine and leverage the extensive data that’s accessible on the Overview page in a variety of ways, and make improvements to your courses if required.
For example, if your revenue trend is falling, check the ratings and reviews for your courses, and see if they are also declining. Search the Udemy marketplace to see if there are new competing courses, and consider whether content in your course needs to be updated or replaced.
