Please review these requirements before you start recording your course


Test Video Service

While we cover this in a dedicated article later in the recording process, we wanted to highlight our Test Video Service. Submit a sample video for feedback on your audio, video, tone, and delivery. You’ll come away confident you’re recording a course that meets our standards. Once you’re ready to submit your test video, log into your instructor account and get started.


Course Quality Requirements Checklist

Please review our Course Quality Requirements Checklist for the minimum requirements to be published on Udemy. You’ll also find more information on specific requirements.

Students who purchase your course have expectations that your course will deliver valuable education content and they’ll learn the course objectives stated in your Course Landing Page (CLP). We’ll review the CLP in more detail during the publishing overview

Keep in mind that your students will need to see and hear your course clearly so your course must meet our audio and video quality standards. We’ll cover how to set up your recording space and how to resolve common audio issues in more detail at a later time.  

  • HD video quality (720p or 1080p)
  • Landscape picture orientation (not portrait)
