Hello Hello!

 

The Community team is excited to announce that we are re-invigorating our super user program, the Community Champions! We’re looking for 10-15 new instructors to join our current group of Champions.

 

What is the Community Champions Program?    

 

The Community Champions program seeks to empower and reward the super users of the Udemy Instructor community. The program is designed to elevate the instructor experience for all instructors through thoughtful mentorship, meaningful dialogue & access to the Udemy team.

 

You can learn more about the requirements & perks in our Community Champions Reference Sheet.

 

This is a great opportunity to help shape the future of our instructor community (and Udemy as a whole)!

If you’re interested in becoming a Community Champion, apply here.

 

Applications will close on Friday, August 20th, 2021.

There's no need for privilege and Udemy's aim should be to empower and reward everyone who contributes to make the entire platform possible.

 

The Udemy team should be here where matters can be discussed without bias of a tight and privileged unit, openly amongst everyone, who is equally relevant and equally important.

 

This is a great opportunity to shape the future of the instructor community and Udemy as a whole...

Hi @DanielEvans, thanks for sharing your thoughts. Our Community Champions are active users who come from a diverse set of backgrounds and are spread across our international communities to help all of our instructors make better courses. They're here every day sharing their experiences and advice, welcoming new members, hearing, inspiring, and motivating their fellow instructors. Likewise, we want to reward them for their dedication, but this does not mean they are privileged users - we completely agree that everyone here is equally important.

 

Our community's greatest goal is to create an inclusive and welcoming environment. We're committed to being your advocate, so we're always open to hearing your feedback and suggestions, regardless of whether you're in this program or not. 🙂

'They're here every day sharing their experiences and advice, welcoming new members, hearing, inspiring, and motivating their fellow instructors. '

 

True of many and the Udemy team could boost these assets much further.

 

There's instructors going at it tooth and nail to produce courses for the platform day in, day out, perpetually supporting their students in the respective Q&A's, bolstering the value of their courses and the integrity of the Udemy brand.

 

Don't these people deserve a 'reward' to have mere access to the Udemy Team as people who are, by your own admittance, 'equally important'?

 

When Club Treehouse takes precedence over the wood mill, there's something sorely wrong with the focus...

You’re absolutely right, Daniel. Every instructor deserves to be heard, and our community and Instructor Support team are here to listen. Our champions are also people who are committed to helping and advocating for the interests of all Udemy instructors.

 

The access to the Udemy team that they get as a perk is via monthly meetings and a dedicated sub-group here in the community. Any published instructor in good standing with Udemy and with at least 2 courses in the platform is more than welcome to apply and become part of this program; in fact, we're really excited to have new members joining us soon! 

 

You're an experienced instructor and an important part of our community, and we truly appreciate and respect your comments. By all means, please continue to share your voice or ask any questions you may have about this - I'm here to help!
