• Marketplace Standard for Free Courses

    Since free courses are often a new student’s first experience on Udemy, it’s important that these courses meet high quality standards. Students who enjoy their first courses are much more likely to take additional courses, and refer their friends and relatives to Udemy. 


    What is the Quality Standard for Free Courses?

    All courses, both free and paid, are measured on a Recent Review Rating, which is the average score of all a courses reviews over the past 90 days (or the last 10 ratings). 

    Free courses, however, are evaluated using their Recent Review Rating and a ‘confidence rating’. The ‘confidence rating’ is not used to unduly hurt free courses. After all, a course with 1000 reviews and a 3.9 rating, is a very different situation than a course with 5 reviews and a 3.9 rating.

    If a free course has a Recent Review Rating less than 4.1, then an “At Risk” signal will pop-up in your instructor dashboard.

    If a free course has a Recent Review Rating less than 4.1 and is tagged with a ‘high degree of confidence’, however, then the course will immediately be hidden from Udemy’s search. The confidence rating is considered high when a substantial amount of reviews for a given course have been submitted by students. This confidence rating is low, however, if the course hasn't collected enough reviews to provide a comprehensive picture of what the student response has been. As a result, until a high confidence review score has been determined, no action will be taken to remove the free course from the search tool.

    You will receive an email and see a notification in your dashboard if your course has been removed from search and discovery.

    What Happens to Free Courses Below the Standard?

    When a free course has a Recent Review Rating of less than 4.1, and is flagged with a ‘high degree of confidence’, then the course will be hidden from Udemy’s search. This means that students searching for the course on the website will not be able to find it, and the course will not be featured in Udemy’s promotions.

    Students will still be able to access the course, however, through the course URL, and via its instructor’s profile link.


    How to Return Flagged Courses Back Into the Marketplace?

    If you have a free course that has fallen below the Recent Review quality standard, here are some techniques you can use to improve it:

    Mine the Data in Your Reviews

    Since student reviews can provide instructors with valuable feedback regarding your courses, they are a great source for changes you might want to consider implementing. Here are some tips on how you can mine the information in your reviews, and use it to improve our course:
     

    • Export your reviews to CSV. You can filter reviews by star and tag reviews to determine trends. Spend some time really understanding what your students are saying.
    • Reply to students. Want more information from a student who left a low star? Did one student give very helpful feedback and you want more? Reply to your reviews to better understand what students mean.

    For more information on how to access your reviews and respond to them, please click here.

    Perform a Self Evaluation

    Go through your course using the student preview mode, and look at your content with a critical eye. What are you doing well? What is outdated in the course and could be updated? Here are some things to consider. 
     

    • Jump into the course quickly. Do you jump right into your course content after a brief introduction? Or do you have a long set-up lecture, a long personal introduction, and a long lecture about what this course is going to deliver? You may want to considering shortening the intro and diving right into the course content.
    • Practicality: Is your course content applicable to your students’ lives? Are you teaching them theory, or how to actually apply their learning? Udemy students are practical learners - they need to know how your course will change their life. Make that clear for them.
    • Know your category. What courses have high ratings in your category and subcategory? What are they doing that you could emulate? This is a great way to better understand what Udemy students want.

  • Marketplace Standards for Free Courses FAQ

    Why does this only apply to free courses?

    This standard currently only applies to free courses because of the high levels of new student enrollments for these courses. Students who have a rewarding, learning experience, are much more likely to take additional courses, and refer their friends and relatives to Udemy.

    While currently this standard only applies to free courses, we are exploring extending the standard to paid courses in the future.

    How will I know if my course has been hidden from search?

    If your course is flagged by our algorithm as “At Risk” you will receive an email notifying you of this, and a notification will also be visible in your instructor dashboard.

    You’ll also get an email and a notification in your dashboard if your course has been removed from search and discovery.



    What happens if I switch my free course to paid?

    If you have a free course that has been hidden from Udemy’s search and you switch it to paid, the course will be reinstated to search. However, because the course’s ranking is below the marketplace average, it may not be easily visible. 

    In this case we still highly recommend improving your course. Although this standard currently only applies to free courses, we are exploring extending the standard to paid courses in the future.

    Please note: while you can change the price of your course at any time, you can switch from Free to Paid only once. If you switch from free to paid and back to free (or vice versa) after the course is published, your promotional announcements for the course will be permanently disabled.

    If you have any additional questions regarding the marketplace standards for free courses, please contact Udemy Support.

  • Watermarks and Links in Video: Quality Standards

    One of the requirements in order for your course to pass Udemy’s Quality Review Process is to incorporate correct use of your branding or personal information in your videos. Below you will find the guiding principles to consider when adding external links to your video.

    Where is Your Link Placed in Your Video?

    • You may include your website, social media profiles, or contact information as a small watermark on your video throughout the lecture. Please do not use distracting placement or colors.
    • You may show your website, social media profiles, or contact information at the beginning or end of your lecture video as long as they only appear briefly on the screen. You may not use a full lecture to provide this information.

  • Differentiated Topic: Quality Standards

    What is a differentiated topic? Why is it important?

    Since Udemy is a marketplace, we have a lot of courses with similar topics. As you start to plan your own course, think about how it will be different and unique compared to all the courses currently published on Udemy. 

    When you have a differentiated topic, you have a clear idea of who your target audience is, what exactly they will learn, and why they should choose your course over everything else that already exists in the marketplace. You want to choose a course where either the topic has not been covered already in the marketplace, or your approach to the topic is unique. By planning your course this way, you’re setting yourself up for success because you are bringing a unique value proposition to the marketplace.

    What you need to know

    • Pick your target audience carefully by defining a) who your ideal student is; b) why they should be interested in taking your course; and c) what they will get out of the course.
    • Pick a specialized topic like “Accounting for real estate agents” rather than just “Accounting”.
    • If you’re teaching on a topic that is already covered in the marketplace, think about how you will be teaching it differently, and define your unique perspective.

    Remember, we do check for this as part of our Quality Review Process.

    In this article, we will cover:

    1. Best practices
    2. Tools to help you choose a topic

    Best practices

    • Pick your target audience carefully: Decide what specific student needs this course will cater to. Once you’ve identified this ideal student, push yourself to think about why they would want to take your course and what they will get out of it. This will help you move towards choosing a specialized topic.
    • Pick a specialized topic: It is hard for students who are going through thousands of courses to make a decision on which course to buy.  If you offer an “Accounting” course, there are probably ten other “Accounting” courses, and a student has no easy way to decide which one to take. Instead, if you create “Accounting for real estate agents”, you’re choosing a specialized topic that your target student can easily identify, which means more enrollments for you. 
    • Differentiate yourself: If you’re teaching on a topic that is already covered in the marketplace, think about how you will be teaching it differently, and define your unique perspective. Are you going to have a special project that students can work on? Are you going to be super enthusiastic compared to all the other instructors? Decide how you want to differentiate yourself from your competition.

    Tools to help you choose a topic

    If you want some help in picking a course topic, here are two resources that will help you do a little market-analysis of Udemy:

    • Market analysis guide: This simple exercise helps you do a mini market-analysis of Udemy to understand how you can stand out from the crowd.

  • Structured Teaching Introduction Lecture : Quality Standards

    What is structured teaching? Why is it important?

    Structuring a course is about organizing your content well, and ensuring it is thorough and comprehensive.

    When a course is structured well, it helps:

    • Students see the learning path that will help them achieve course goals
    • Students follow the course better since it is well organized and easier to consume

    What you need to know

    • Create an introductory lecture which covers what students will get out of the course and walks them through the curriculum.
    • Ensure the introductory lecture articulates the reasoning behind how you've designed the curriculum, summarizes practice activities you will be covering, addresses who should take the course and what they will get out of it.
    • Stick to one skill per section, and one concept per lecture.
    • Make sure all the sections add up to achieve the course goals.
    • Keep the sections as modular as possible.
    • Cover the needed material to achieve course goals without being overwhelming or distracting.
    • Ensure that sections and lectures are well-sequenced.
    • Based on best practices, create an outline for your course using our template, gather feedback from our instructor community, and then transfer it into your Udemy account.

    Remember, we do check for this as part of our Quality Review Process.

    In this article we will cover:

    • Best practices 
    • Minimum requirements to pass our Quality Review Process
    • Tools to help you create an outline

    Best practices

    • Create an introductory lecture. Ensure the introductory lecture articulates the reasoning behind how you've designed the curriculum, summarizes practice activities you will be covering, addresses who should take the course and what they will get out of it 
    • Provide value right away by diving into the heart of your content in the first section of your course. The earlier the better!
    • Address one skill per section. Give students a chance to make progress every few lectures. Each section should map out to one of your course goals and be devoted to a specific skill. A section should only contain 3-5 lectures and focus on helping students acquire one new relevant skill. 
    • Stick to one concept per lecture. Don’t try to cover too much in a single lecture. Keep it simple, stick to one specific concept and address 3-5 points about that concept.
    • Make sure your sections add up to the course goals. While each section should help students acquire one new skill, all the sections together should add up to deliver on all the skills your course promises to address in your course goals. 
    • Keep it modular. Each section should be devoted to a specific skill, where the section can be consumed by itself if a student wants to learn only that skill. The titles of the sections and lectures should be clear so students understand what skills they’ll gain.
    • Cover the needed material. Ensure that the course doesn’t cover too much or too little. You should be focused on ensuring that the material covers everything needed to achieve the course goals, but not so much information that it is overwhelming or distracting from the goals.
    • Sequence the content. Sequence your sections and lectures so that there is a continuous learning path and there are no gaps.

    Minimum requirements to pass our Quality Review Process

    The course must have an introduction that explains what students will get out of the course, and walks them through the curriculum.

    Tools to help you create an outline

    Creating an outline will help you plan out the sections and lectures of your course, what you will cover in each lecture; and the format you want to use for each lecture.

    Feel free to use the following resources as you develop your course outline to plan the structure of your course:

    • Adapt our outline template to help you apply best practices.
    • Once you’ve created a draft, share your outline in the Udemy Studio to get feedback from our instructor community.
    • Finally, transfer your outline to your Udemy account, and you’ve got the structure of your course in place!

  • Instructor Bio: Quality Standards

    What is Your Instructor Bio? Why is it Important?

    Your Instructor Bio is your dedicated space to present your expertise, your experience and your personality. It makes up your user profile, and also appears on your course landing page(s).

    In a survey of potential students, respondents cited “credibility” as the most important factor in choosing an online course, so it’s critical to establish your expertise in your Instructor Bio to boost student confidence and enrollments.

    What you Need to Know

    • Relate your Instructor Bio to your course topics
    • Provide social proof to potential students on why you’re a legitimate expert
    • Keep your bio short, relevant and concise
    • Include a high quality non-pixelated, non-animated image of yourself
    • Don’t include links in your Instructor Bio. Add them to the designated links section instead.
    • All information in your Instructor Bio must follow our Trust & Safety Guidelines.

    Remember, we do check for this as part of our Quality Review Process.

    In This Article we Will Cover:

    • Where you can access your instructor bio
    • Best practices
    • Minimum requirements to pass our Quality Review Process
    • How to create your Instructor Bio on Udemy

    Where You Can Access Your Instructor Bio

    You can access your Instructor Bio by moving your cursor to the top right hand of the page, and by clicking on "Profile" in the dropdown menu. You can also head there by clicking on this link.

    To learn how to add or change your bio photo, please click here.

    Best Practices

    • Relate your Instructor Bio to your course topics. If you’re teaching programing, emphasize your programming background. If you’re teaching sailing, emphasize your sailing skills. Teaching courses in multiple topics? Write your bio to cover your expertise in all of the topics.
    • Provide social signifiers. Include social proof for your potential students to demonstrate that you are an experienced and legitimate expert. Have you worked with many large, Fortune 500 companies in your career as as a consultant? Name them.  Have you published articles in magazines? List them out. Real-world examples of your experience provide depth to your Bio.
    • Keep it comprehensive, but concise. This isn’t the place for 2,000 words on your childhood. Keep your Bio short, to the point, and relevant to your expertise.
    • Include a high-quality image of yourself. Share a non-pixelated, non-animated (no cartoons!) image of yourself to establish more trust with your students. If you are publishing as a company, including a corporate logo is fine.

    Minimum Requirements to Pass our Quality Review Process

    • Use the Instructor Bio to highlight your background, experience, and credibility in your field.
    • Don’t include links in your Instructor Bio. Instead, add them to the designated "Links" section of your profile
    • All information in your Instructor Bio must follow our Trust & Safety Guidelines.

  • Practice Activities: Quality Standards

    What are Practice Activities? Why are They Important?

    Practice activities like quizzes, projects and exercises are activities that help students practice a concept they’ve learned. By helping students build on concepts they’ve learned in your video lectures, and applying them to real world applications, you help students engage more with your course.

    What you Need to Know

    • In each section of your course, include one learning activity (quiz, exercise, or project) to help students apply what they've learned in that section.
    • Provide all needed resources for each activity, such as worksheets, source code, practice files, etc.
    • Describe how the activity is relevant.
    • Connect the activity to your course goals.

    Remember, we do check for this as part of our Quality Review Process.

    In this article we will cover:

    • Best practices
    • How to add practice activities to your Udemy course

    Best Practices

    • Include one practice activity per section. In each section of your course, include one practice activity (quiz, exercise, or project) that helps a student apply the knowledge covered in that section. This may include:
    • Highlighting key takeaways at the end of each section, using a slide or “cheat sheet”;
    • Providing practice exercises for students to apply what they’ve learned, such as challenge questions, tasks or projects; and/or
    • Challenging students with a quiz to assess their progress.
    • Provide all needed resources for each practice activity. One of the biggest complaints students have is when they don’t have the right resources for completing a project or exercise. Avoid this by providing all needed resources for students to easily start and complete each exercise. 
    • Describe how the practice activity is relevant. Students need to know why they should take a quiz or complete an exercise. Describe how each activity is related to the content and what students should learn from completing it.
    • Connect the practice activity to course goals. Students want to know that an activity is going to help them achieve their goals. Describe how each activity they complete will get them closer to their overall course goals.

  • Instructor Delivery: Quality Standards

    Instructor delivery is all about how you communicate in your course. When you come across as a credible and confident instructor, it has a huge positive impact on the learning experience for students, and can tilt the scales on whether students love the course or they don’t.

    What You Need to Know

    How to speak:

    • Edit out all uhms, pauses and verbal mistakes.
    • Demonstrate genuine excitement and enthusiasm for the topic.
    • Speak clearly and with a measured pace.
    • Practice and script out what you want to say.
    • Use “I” and “you” instead of “we”.

    What to say:

    • Use visual tools to reinforce what you’re saying.
    • Avoid going off into tangents when explaining a concept.
    • Explain all jargon that you use.
    • Catch and explain potential misunderstandings (this demonstrates empathy for students).

    Other recommendations:

    • Engage with students in the discussion forum by answering questions or starting new discussions and posing questions to your students
    • Opt for closed captioning

    Remember, we do check for this as part of our Quality Review Process.

    In this article, we will cover:

    • Best practices
    • Minimum requirements to pass our Quality Review Process
    • Examples of good and bad instructor delivery

    Best Practices

    How to Speak

    • Edit out all uhms, pauses, or verbal mistakes: Keep your videos clean and free of mistakes. Edit out any verbal miscues, long pauses, or other mistakes that might distract students. These can be small (“umms”, “ahhs”, slight sniffles) or they can be large (blowing your nose, dropping a prop, leaving the frame). This is one-time pain for long term gain, so don’t be afraid to do retakes when you’re recording!
    • Demonstrate genuine excitement and enthusiasm for the topic: Whether it’s your first time explaining something or your twentieth, students appreciate instructors who can convince them that a topic is truly interesting and worth diving into. Don’t be afraid to show your passion for the topic!
    • Speak clearly with a measured pace:  By slowing down and enunciating your words with careful pronunciation, you will make it easy for students from around the world to understand you clearly.
    • Practice and script out what you want to say: There are very few people out there who can face a camera and just start talking. For the rest of us, we recommend scripting out what you want to say so you can stay confident and organized on camera. Rehearse the script once or twice before recording and you’ll do great!
    • Use “I” and “you” instead of “we”: Use language that refers directly to yourself, and to the student, rather than speaking generally. This small touch leads to a more personal experience for students and, in turn, higher student engagement.

    What to Say

    • Use visual tools: Students appreciate when instructors zoom in or visually highlight the part of the screen that is most relevant to what the instructor is saying. In live-action videos, try superimposing key words, freeze framing, or using a telestrator to help focus students’ attention. 
    • Avoid tangents: Avoid talking about related topics that aren’t immediately necessary or relevant to the topic of the lecture.
    • Explain all jargon: Whenever you introduce a term that may be new for students, define that term in the context of the concept you’re explaining.
    • Catch and explain potential misunderstandings: Think about the types of mistakes an average student would make and the concerns he/she would have, and address them whenever possible.

    Other Recommendations

    • Answer questions in the discussion forums: Students report higher satisfaction with courses when instructors take time to answer their questions or spark conversation in the course discussion forum.
    • Opt for closed captioning: Some students really appreciate being able to read an instructor’s words while they’re being delivered. While this is totally optional, it is something to consider when making your content more globally accessible. Click here for more information on adding closed captions to your course.

    Minimum Requirements to Pass our Quality Review Process

    • Cut out “umms” and “ahhs” and get straight to the point. Students want an instructor who is clear, concise, and confident.
    • Work to deliver your content with an enthusiastic tone. The camera strips out some enthusiasm so you’ll have to give 110% while filming your lectures.
    • Pronounce your words clearly and emphasize important points.

  • Course Goals: Quality Standards

    What are Course Goals? Why are They Important?

    Course goals explain what students will gain from the course. Setting goals is the first step towards structuring your course well. And it can make or break your course, because courses that do this well get great reviews in our marketplace, whereas the ones that do this badly get poor reviews.

    What You Need to Know

    With course goals, you want to ensure that:

    • You have a specific target audience in mind, because the more specific your course is, the better it will do in the marketplace.
    • Your audience will learn specific skills that they didn’t already have.
    • The course goals are realistic and achievable.
    • You are setting the right expectations; the course will actually deliver on these goals.

    Remember, we do check for this as part of our Quality Review Process.

    In this article we will cover:

    • Best practices for course goals

  • Udemy Course Quality Checklist

    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, and at least 30 minutes of video content.

    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.

  • Lecture Descriptions: Quality Standards

    What are lecture descriptions? Why are they important?

    Lecture descriptions provide potential students with a brief summary of the content covered in your course lectures.  

    Lecture descriptions:

    • Help search engines gain insight into your course topics and increase search traffic to your course.
    • Help potential students have a better understanding of what the course will cover.

    What you need to know

    • Use lecture descriptions to provide a detailed written description of what each lecture covers, and to clarify key points.
    • Keep your lecture descriptions brief and relevant.
    • Don’t include external links in your lecture descriptions.
    • The lecture descriptions are visible to potential students on the course landing page, but are not shown to enrolled students on the course dashboard page. 

    Remember, we do check for these as part of our Quality Review Process.

    In this article we will cover:

    • Best practices
    • How to add lecture descriptions on Udemy

    Best practices

    • Keep your lecture descriptions brief and relevant. Provide information that is succinct (try to keep each one to a few sentences), but that is also specific to the lecture. Be sure to expand beyond the lecture title!
    • Clarify key points. Though you are welcome to be creative and think of your own way to create a lecture description, two simple sentences covering the main gist of the lecture, with a bulleted list of key information is ideal. 
    • Don’t include external links in your lecture descriptions, unless they lead to free educational content. Links cannot prompt students to make a purchase or provide personal details.
    • Don’t provide too much information. The goal of lecture descriptions is to assist your lectures, not compete with them. Having too much text in your lecture descriptions can distract from the main content and disrupt student learning experiences.

  • Lecture Format: Quality Standards

    What are Lecture Formats?

    There are 3 different lecture formats that you can use when creating your Udemy course. They are: video, article, and video and slide mashup. Each format can be useful depending on the goal of your lecture.

    Recommendations

    • We recommend video lectures are between 2 and 6 minutes in length 
    • Using “talking head” style video lectures for your introductory lectures can establish rapport and build trust with your students. Consider who your target audience is and what the right video format could be for them

    For more information on our lecture quality standards, please review this article regarding our Quality Review Process.

    The 3 Different Lecture Formats

    VIDEO 
    The Video lecture format is Udemy's preferred delivery type. Video is a great way to engage multiple senses and maintain student interest. It is also a powerful teaching tool to showcase complex ideas in a short period of time.

    For technical courses, the technical portions of your course should be filmed with a screencasting software.
