Check your quality with Test Video

Udemy requires that all courses meet our course quality requirements. It’s important that your online course delivers a good learning experience for your learners who are able to hear and see your course clearly. We provide a free Test Video Review to give you feedback on a sample recording you submit to ensure your recording quality is in line with our requirements before you start recording your first course, or whenever you make changes to your recording set-up.

In your Test Video recording sample, use the same recording equipment and environment you will use when you record your course.


  1. Video shot in high definition (HD) at a resolution of 720 pixels (p) minimum 
  2. Video with clear lighting, good framing, and a steady camera
  3. Audio that comes out of both channels and matches video
  4. Audio clear of distracting noises


Record a short 1-3 minute sample video to ensure you have the correct recording set up and appropriate camera settings before you start to record your actual course.

Remember, your video doesn’t have to be perfect. If you feel like something might not be right or are unsure about your set up, it’s a great time to send us a test video.

Test Video feedback

Once you submit a video for Test Video, please allow some time for our team to review and give you personalized tips. You can submit as many test videos as you need to get your recording setup, sound, audio, and delivery just right. When you receive our feedback, don’t hesitate to send a new test video after making improvements to your current setup. We are here to work with you so that you can feel confident that you have the proper set up to record a high quality course. 

Once you’re ready to submit your test video, log into your instructor account and click here to get started.
