I making my first Udemy course, and I have one question. Can I sell that course on some other platforms like teachable, skillshare, etc, or I can sell it only on Udemy?

Hi @PiximumAgen707 

 

Udemy's marketplace model means that when you publish a course on our platform, you retain all the rights to your content. You simply grant us a license to host the course and make it available to our users, and to advertise your course on our platform and on third party services.


These license terms are outlined in detail in Udemy’s instructor terms. You can also offer your course on other services, but we ask that your course is never offered for a lower price than on Udemy. Note that if your course is included in the Udemy for Business content collection, per the Promotions Policy, there may be additional distribution.

 

Hope this helps!

“we ask that your course is never offered for a lower price than on Udemy”

 

That does not seem to be the case, Udemy requires that the course is not offered for free elsewhere, not that the price should not be lower. This is the response I got from the policy team:

 

You are correct - you may put your course on your own website for a lower price than on Udemy, so long as it is not free.“

 

“you are welcome to post them on any platform you choose. All we ask is that you do not offer them for free elsewhere while charging for them on Udemy.”

Hi @MariaG is it true that the price of my course can be even cheaper on any other platform as long as it is not for free as mentioned by @Baghi823?

Hi @drkrisharma @Baghi823 

 

The only requirement that is asked is not to offer a paid Udemy course for free elsewhere. You can have a lower price, publish the course on your own website or even on other platforms as long as what was mentioned is met.

Thank you for clarifying as I was about to ask the same question.

Hi @MariaG - does the same apply to courses that were added to Udemy for Business collection? Or is the policy different then? I can't find anything in instructor T&Cs that would forbid that, but I have seen information that would lead me to believe that UFB courses can be only available on Udemy and own website?
