The Students tab helps instructors learn more about the students enrolled in their courses, their student’s educational interests and the market reach of their Udemy content. This article outlines how instructors can access these insights, and use them to plan new courses, or make improvements to their existing ones.
How to Navigate to Your Students Tab
To navigate to the Students 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 Students
The student total that you see when All Courses is selected, is the total number of unique students enrolled in both your published or unpublished courses. If a student is enrolled in more than one of your courses, then they are counted towards your student total once. You can also filter a particular course to view the number of enrollments in 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. As a result, the student total on your instructor profile may differ, since that total counts all unique students enrolled in courses you’re an instructor for, regardless of the manage permissions.
The student’s avatar will note which of your courses they are enrolled and when they did. By clicking on the avatar, you will be directed to the student’s profile page.
Your Reach: in this section, instructors can review what countries their students reside in and what languages they speak. The latter is determined by a combination of their browser’s language preference settings, and their account’s language in Udemy. This information may provide insights for localization and new content opportunities. You can also view your market reach for a particular course by selecting it with the course filter at the top of the page.
Additional Student Interests: this section lists the most popular topics that your students are enrolled in, aside from the topics of your existing courses. If you have selected a specific course to view, with the course filter at the top of the page, then that course's topic will be excluded from this list.
This information helps you see what topics your students are interested in, and can help you choose what course you should create next. Click a topic from the list to see the current Udemy marketplace opportunities with the Marketplace Insights tool.
