GIMP & Canva are great, free photo manipulation / editing softwares.

 

I've also seen folks use Trello, Asana & Google Doc/Sheets for course management and outlining.

I also want to add these Udemy-specific resources, based on questions we see frequently in the community:

For the photos, I would add unsplash.com and newoldstock https://nos.twnsnd.co/

 

And on https://www.slidescarnival.com/ you will findlots of great free power point templates.

Hi @JoyceWSolomon, it always depends on the site, sometimes you'll have to give credit to the author and sometimes you just can use it without credits. For the music, for example, if you use the music from Incompetech.com you'll have to give credit to the author, you'll find what to write right in the info of the song. About the photos, if you'll use the pictures from Pixabay.com, most of the time you will be free to use the photos also for commercial purposes without any credit, you will find about the license of the photo on the right of your screen.

Csnva can also be used for making PowerPoint slides too. There is so much that you can do with Canva. It's more than  just a photo editor.

I agree with you. After knowing that canva is super great at created images, graphics, and other things, I have completely strived to master it.

are these posts for real? or they are bots?... they look surreal...

Go to solution

Christian, these are real posts by real people and I'm one of them. I noticed that you have brand new Neo4j training courses, congratulations!

I wish we someone would have developed a crime analysis platform based on this relationship focused data technology when I was on the job. Nonetheless, it's good to know it's here now!

Since the certification is free it seems (to me) that you might want to consider sharing how you use Neo4j in order to give some context to the application. 
I noticed that there are tons of okay, to overly technical videos on the Internet, so hopefully your course is exactly what is needed to bridge the gap!

Best wishes!

I agree and love canva. I'm using it fir creating my videod and jt's just too easy! Hamdoulahe that K found that amazing tool, plus you can do tons with it in the free edition.

 

I combine it with Filmora, paid verdion for editing .

Same here. Canva has proven to be a very reliable resource for creating videos, slides and every other thing that Canva does.

@JocelynH +1 for Asana. I've been using it since 2016.

Amazing list @MassimilianoAlf ! I use several of those resources every day.

Hi thanks for this list, it’s very useful. I am a musician and would like to offer free music for instructors. I called my list the Free Notes Newsletter and instructors can sign up here: https://zebramusic.com/

 

Can you please add this to this list?

Thanks

Hi Steve, thanks for your proposal, but it requires a email registration to get the free stuff and this goes against Udemy rules... if you'll offer free music without any type of registration I will be happy to add your site.

I visited your site but didn't find any free music. Your prices are probably about right $25 -$45+ for the music industry and the quality of your 10-15sec demos seem quite good. 
I believe anyone who purchased your music will be happy with the results.
