Announcing: Welcome & Congratulations Messages

Instructors engage with students in so many creative ways. One example that particularly stood out was instructors who send individual messages to welcome new students to their courses. Similarly, we also saw a number of instructors send messages to congratulate students who completed their courses.  We were excited to see how both of these messages strengthened the student-instructor relationship.

When we completely redesigned and rebuilt our Messaging tool, we wanted to help instructors communicate with students in the most simple, helpful, and efficient way possible.  With this in mind, we’re thrilled to release an enhancement to the Udemy messages: automated Welcome and Congratulations messages!  

Many Udemy students lead busy lives, and prioritizing on-demand learning can sometimes be difficult.  Welcome messages are a tool that prompts students to engage with the content that instructors work so hard to create.  To reward students who complete a course, a message of Congratulations from an instructor can foster a sense of accomplishment and encourage them to continue learning!
