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:

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.

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.

Thanks so much for this one-stop-shop information. As a first-time course creator and trying to find answers on Udemy and their guidelines, this is so helpful. I really appreciate the additional tools to help set us up for success. This information should be in a top post GUIDELINE for First-time Course Creators.

 

Thanks once again.

@MassimilianoAlf @thanks for this list! It’s good to have it. 

 

May i ask regarding the music and photos, are they royalty free music and photos for commercial use? 

 

Its because, on Udemy we are selling so I want to ensure that instructors don’t get into trouble. 

 

Thanks for your information on licences offered by the mentioned sites.
