December 2017 Newsletter

2017 was a banner year. This year, you’ve collectively uploaded 64,915 hours of content. That’s 7.4 years of learning material! Through all that content, this year you taught 6,311,185 students in 44 languages in 190 countries.

Incredible work! You’ve changed students’ lives for the better and hopefully, you’ve seen the benefits in your own life because of it. As we look towards 2018, I encourage you to take a moment to pause and reflect on how far you’ve come in your journey as a Udemy instructor. You’ve challenged yourself in many ways and put countless hours into shaping your teaching.

What worked? What didn’t work? What investments will you make in 2018?

If a new course is on the list, keep in mind that every course you create is an investment in your future brand, your professional assets, and your global reach. Commit to expanding or updating your library of content, and set yourself a deadline. Finally, work backward and break it down.

What milestones will you hit along the way?

Update: Here at Udemy, we’ve decided that it’s time to say goodbye to our monthly newsletter in its current form. Next year, you can look forward to a wider variety of stories, tips, and insights in your inbox. If you have three minutes, please tell us how we can make instructor emails even better.
