News & Updates


Leaving Course Reviews

We’re working on making it more encouraged and more intuitive for students to leave course reviews. As part of that effort, we’ve just released a few design updates!  Students can now leave a review from the course card (which you’ll see under “My Courses”):

Students can now enter in a rating directly from the course discussion board (removing that extra click from the process):

And finally, we’ve added some prompts in the review box to help students consider the most important course elements, and to encourage longer, more detailed reviews:

Udemy Instructor Policies

We’ve consolidated and clarified some of our existing policies – around announcements and student reviews – on this page. None of this is new information, but we heard from a number of instructors that a centralized place to house these guidelines would be useful. Please use this as a quick reference! And if you have any questions about policy, you can email policy@udemy.com for additional clarification.

Course Creation Camp
Are you in the process of creating a course? Or are you thinking about starting the course creation process? Last week we kicked off a month long course creation challenge and it’s not too late to join in! Course Creation Camp consists of 6 tasks to complete during the month of June, each with its own deadline and points value. At the end of the month, instructors with the most points will be eligible to win prizes. Even if you’ve missed the first few deadlines, that’s okay – the tasks will help structure your course creation journey and are designed to help you create an ultra quality course! Here’s how to join in the fun:
  1. Look over the full challenge schedule here. Click on teach task for best practices and detailed instructions!
  2. Complete the task by the designated date and post your link in the Udemy Studio or How To course discussion board. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #SummerCamp to earn points.
  3. Wait for the feedback to roll in!
