Hello Instructors!

 

As you likely know our Q2  Centerpiece kicked off on May 14th around the world. Our quarterly sales event features fantastic discounts designed to inspire students to invest in their education and purchase your wonderful courses so that together we can transform more lives through learning. I know the idea of a discount may not be appealing, but at the same time the more people we can tempt into their first purchase, hopefully, the more we can encourage them to be repeat buyers.

Hello Instructors! Earlier this year I shared our 2024 marketing goal to create sustainable hype and amplify the Udemy brand in new ways. One way we’re doing this is by sharing “Stories of Transformation” from our learners, customers, Udemates, and of course from all of you, our instructors! This week the spotlight is on Diego Davila, who has been teaching on Udemy for over a decade now. I hope you’ll take a few minutes to watch his story, and learn more about his experience in his own words here.

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).
