Hello instructors! Today is the day we officially launch our new brand. You’ve probably noticed already that things look a little different around here. This total refresh of our look and feel was made with you in mind.

 

We invite you to head over to the Teaching Center to get more details on what’s new, and why we think this makes an even better Udemy for all of us. You can also get our new brand kit for use on your website and social media.

 

And hey, we would love to know what you think. So let us know in the comments!

@SharonRamel Yes, it is frustrating. On top of the copyright infringement issues that they never address. Thousands of courses exist on various websites selling stolen Udemy courses and they never do anything about it, even when we contact them and file whatever we have to file with their third party of choice that's supposed to help with this. That too is a company issue, not instructor level. I flag things, I file DMCA takedown requests, but there are thousands of instructors and the pirated material comes from Udemy and not other platforms - the logo is visible, their name is used... "Buy cheap Udemy Courses"... So, company issue.

 

This and many other things make me not give a **bleep** about their new logo and visual identity. It looks even cheaper and with no concept behind it... "North". You have to explain that to everyone, it's not straightforward. It looks like an "u" with a misplaced accent symbol on it.

 

They can choose to be an educational platform or the eBay of online courses. Soon to turn into Craigslist.

You made me laugh @LuciaGrosaru regarding the bizarre north symbol (I call it a hat) - my immediate thought was which language is this from! I am familiar with the Swedish, French and German letter accents.

@Human-Science I assure you I am not ignoring your request. What I have been doing is working to get a more formal response from the team. I expect to have one early next week at which time I will update the original post.

@SharonRamel @Human-Science Moderator @ChrystieV edited my post with a "bleep" and now it seems even worse than what I said. 😂 Job well done, and disrespectful in not addressing my claims.

 

Btw, moderator, my formulation was informal, not vulgar. Any dictionary would've clarified that.

Here, bleep the one from Cambridge:

Update: 😂 Apparently, it's not the moderator with the editing. It's the AI... lovely.

@LuciaGrosaruonce you write your post you can use the Preview to see the bleeps that are generated by the stupid AI 😉

@Pino Thank you. I don't think I've ever gotten the bleep treatment in here before... So I thought it was the moderator. It's even worse that this is automatic... I had a four-letter word, but it wasn't that one, lol.

With so much tension in this thread, I thought it might be helpful for me to share this video I recently posted on LinkedIn.  I've been a Udemy instructor since 2012 (yikes, time flies 🙂 ) and this is actually the first time I visited the community. Seems to be a lot of pent up frustration. I don't want to pile on, but to be honest, I can't say that I'm surprised that instructors don't feel valued as I have felt the same several times.

The amount of extreme opinions in this forum on the branding is amazing. There are such extreme opinions and then there are those who are more concerned about their personal issues! That's how it will always be in a forum so it's great to see such spirited discussion. 

Many many Congratulations  for the new look.

The uptick with logo indicates upward movement and growth.

Growth for all-learners, instructors, community members, and udemy as 

a global community on the voyage of learning.

All The Best.

I can only approve the new logo, it is clear that you are paying homage to my awesome company logo and using the top T of my T rune.

Hi @JackieDurin803 Sorry to hear you are having trouble accessing your own courses, you probably are logged into a second account, but the best thing to do is reach out to instructorsupport@udemy.com along with your course URL so the team can help you out to locate your course.
