Hello Instructors! 

 

It’s now February and this month’s theme is SEO!! We’d love for you to stop by our coffee chat and network with fellow instructors while sharing your experience with SEO.

What is a virtual coffee chat? 

 

The community virtual coffee chats are hour-long informal networking sessions held via Zoom. During these sessions, you’ll have the opportunity to network with and get to know other Udemy instructors worldwide.

 

How does it work?

February’s theme is SEO, so for the first 30 minutes, we will discuss various questions and Search Engine Optimization. Then we will open the floor for some questions you may have for other instructors regarding SEO as an instructor.

 

How do I sign up?

Glad you asked! You can sign up for the coffee chat here!

 

We look forward to seeing you on Friday, February 23rd at 11:00am PT (Pacific Standard Time, US)! 

 

*We understand that this time may not be ideal for all time zones, however, we will change the times of the coffee chat each month to accommodate different locations.

Hi all,

 

Tax season has arrived in the United States, and so have 2023 tax forms for US instructors! If you submitted form W-9 (for US persons and businesses), you should be able to access Form 1099-MISC summarizing your 2023 Udemy earnings and withholding at this point. You can view your form and securely download a PDF of it in your Payout & Tax Settings page. A physical tax form will be sent to the mailing address you provided when you completed your tax documentation, unless you selected to receive your year-end tax forms electronically (and so Udemy won’t send a copy by mail).
