The Course Creation Journey

If you’re a new instructor creating your first course, here’s a sneak peek into what the journey of creating a course will look like.

You’ll notice there are 2 major checkpoints:

  • One early on to check your audio-video quality
  • One at the very end where we make sure your course meets all the criteria outlined in our quality checklist

So make sure to know the quality checklist like the back of your hand!

  24. Cathal says:

    I signed up for the challenge yesterday and am very excited about creating my course.

    My problem is, I started by naming the course on Udemy but I can’t seem to find my blueprint anywhere.

    Is there a dashboard on Udemy teach where I can pick up where I left off please?

    Thanks in advance for your reply. 🙂

    I’m in the Design Intro Lecture / Design Content Lectures stages; have joined the Udemy Studio Facebook Group and received and made use of feedback from them; found the Planning stage fertile and conceptually changed the course name accordingly; and am in the Gather stage at this very moment and will enter the Record Test stage in a day or two when I receive the okay to switch from free trial to full licence and maintenance agreement for use of the specialist video editing gear I have chosen (TechSmith Camtasia Studio). It has been an extraordinarily incredible journey so far, and Udemy has made it extraordinarily easy for me. I have never been this happy and felt this fulfilled in my life before, and I have in the course of my life helped literally billions of people around the world improve their health, wealth and happiness, saved many thousands of lives by advocacy, coaching and counselling the subject matter of the course I am developing, written a clutch of Amazon Bestsellers and am consequently a featured blogger on the Huffington Post by personal invitation of its Editor in Chief. And yet none of that came close to making me feel the way I do developing a course for Udemy. Thanks Udemy.

    Thank you so much Udemy – Although I’m relatively new to Udemy, my journey started (like so many others I guess) when I came across a Udemy video ad strategically placed whilst looking for a free JavaScript & jQuery tutorial to help me prepare for a Training Course I was going to run.
    I have to say that I firstly skipped the Udemy ad a number of times, (as Udemy looked too expensive)… Then thanks to the ad’s perfect placement & regularity plus the diminishing time frame & lack of credible options elsewhere I thankfully decided to check out what all the fuss was about at Udemy!
    I not only found free & paid for courses that has helped me make money but I also found a potential for me to draw my attention to exploring the opportunity of becoming a full-time Udemy Instructor!
    Why, well, I’m a self-employed IT Trainer & Guitar Teacher, used to making my living within these two topics I am used to making schemes of work, resources, assessment, video, audio & websites…
    So in Udemy I have such a huge door of opportunity, what with the Udemy team, fellow instructors, the platform, the training resources, the expertise, if I try hard enough, then I believe that over the coming years; I too will become a Udemy success story…
