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”):

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 firstname.lastname@example.org for additional clarification.
