The low-tech way to getting started on Udemy

“What if I’m not an expert at recording video?” This is a question we get a lot Udemy. It’s totally understandable. You can be an expert in your field, someone who is passionate about sharing your knowledge, but not know where to start with recording.

If this is you, take a deep breath. You’ll be fine. We have tons of resources to help you out. And great people, like our own Alex Mozes, to help answer your questions.


Ready to take the next step? Here are some tips for starting out:

  1. Invest in a good microphone, either USB or lavalier — the built-in microphone on your laptop or smartphone won’t be good enough (see our recommendations)
  2. Take free Udemy courses on recording audio and video (courses are in English only):
  3. Film practice videos to get used to talking on screen — and submit them to Udemy for free feedback
  4. Join a Newcomer Challenge for extra guidance and motivation

We know you’ve got this!
