  • Course Instructors and Teaching Assistants

    Udemy instructors work hard to provide students with high quality courses and compelling learning experiences. Depending on the course, it may have more than one instructor, as well as teaching assistants to help answer questions you may have.

    Instructors

    Udemy courses are created and overseen by real-world experts in their respective fields. You can see who the instructors are for a course, and review information about them, by scrolling down to the “Instructor” section on the course landing page.

    Teaching Assistants

    Instructors can also add teaching assistants to their courses, who can help them with their course materials and respond to student questions in the Q&A.

    Even though a Teaching Assistant’s profile may not appear on the course landing page, they are also knowledgeable in the course subject, and can provide accurate answers to your questions.
