Hello Instructors! 

 

It’s now September and we have a new theme for you all, Teaching Best Practieces! With this subject, we’d love to dive deep into sharing online teaching knowledge and how to create the best possible experience for your learners. We’d love for you to stop by our coffee chat and network with fellow instructors while sharing your experience with teaching courses.

 

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?

 

September’s theme is course creation, so for the first 30 minutes, we will discuss various questions and scenarios about teaching best practices. Then we will open the floor for some questions you may have for other instructors regarding expertise as an online 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 Wednesday, September 21st at 10:30am PT! 

 

 

*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 instructors!

 

We've released the updated version of the Practice Insights report which is dedicated to providing you with more data and insights into how your students interact with coding exercises. With this report, you’ll be able to:

  • See how learners engaged with your coding exercises
  • Review all coding exercise data for a course in one place
  • Take action on where your learners might be getting stuck

For instructors with coding exercises, check out the report and learn more about your coding exercises today!

 

Beyond the practice insights improvements, you can now create exercises faster with new “Generate with AI” for Javascript. In addition, we’ve added React 18 to our language library and a "run code" functionality for learners to test their Python and Javascript exercises.

For full details on these exciting coding exercise improvements, check out our Teaching Center Article. Code on.

Hi instructors!

 

Did you know that Udemy Business courses with coding exercises see 90% more student enrollments than comparable courses without them? Knowing this, we’re especially pleased to announce our latest round of updates and improvements to Udemy's coding exercises. 

 

To provide greater understanding into how your students interact with coding exercises, we're introducing a new Practice Insights report. It currently highlights metrics focused specifically on your coding exercises, including:

  • Performance funnels tracking students who view, run tests, and complete each exercise.
  • Charts highlighting time spent on each exercise over the past 7 days, 30 days or 12 months.
  • Filtering capabilities by course, exercise, date range and Udemy Business learners.
  • Coming soon: Coding exercise performance summary by course with exercise comparison tables.

 

For full details on these new coding exercise insights, check out our Teaching Center Article.

Hey instructor community!

 

We’re excited to announce that we have created a new space in the community for those who are working on the New Instructor Challenge. This is a space for those going through the 45-day challenge to create their first course. In this board, you can discuss topics specifically related to the New Instructor Challenge such as questions, success stories, feedback for the program, etc.

 

Creating your first course can be difficult, especially if you are doing it alone. This space will bring people together to collaborate towards the goal of becoming a Udemy instructor!

Hey there instructor community!

You came to Udemy to share your passion and knowledge — but maybe you don’t know where to start with audio, video, or topic selection. Or maybe you've already published a course or two, but want to hone your craft when it comes to promoting and managing your course, or creating practical activities and assessments to engage with your learners.


That’s why we created our official course, on, well, how to create an online course.  


Until recently, we were only able to offer the course in English, but today we’re excited to announce we are now able to offer the course with subtitles in Chinese Traditional, French, German, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, Turkish, and Russian.


You can enroll now for free here. 

About the course

In 90 minutes, we’ll guide you through the recommended course creation process and share best practices in teaching and instructional design, as well as resources you can use to help you plan, produce, and publish your own course.

Here are some of the specifics we cover:

  • How to create a well-structured course outline according to learning design principles
  • How to produce your course content by following best practices for recording and editing videos
  • How to compose a compelling course landing page (CLP) that attracts the right learners to your course
  • How to launch your course successfully
  • How to use your instructor dashboard to manage your course and grow your audience on Udemy


We also have great templates and checklists to help you plan your course content, manage and track your video production and editing process, ready your course for publication, and more. We've made those resources available in all 12 languages, too. 


Creating a course is a journey, but you don’t have to go it alone!


Ready to learn more? Here’s a link where you can enroll. We look forward to reading your feedback in the course reviews.
