Can I use Skillshare with Udemy?

Go to solution

Hello everybody Smiley Happy

 

I created my first Udemy course: link removed, breaking rules

Also, I added my course to Skillshare: link removed. breaking rules

My questions for you:

1. Can I do that? Is it legal? Udemy is my main platform, so I will delete my course on Skillshare if I am breaking your rules.

2. If I can post my course to Skillshare, can I give it for free to my friends with coupon (course is not free on Skillshare, I only want to give it free with the coupon to my friends)? Please let me know is it legal on your side, so I not get banned from you because of that.

Udemy won't ban you for publishing your course on Skillshare or for creating free coupons for your friends. You own your course, not Udemy, and your license to Udemy is non-exclusive (usually - see below.)

You're more likely to be banned on Skillshare; they inconsistently enforce their content guidelines and they aren't the same as Udemy's. You'll have to be sure your course adheres to both sets of rules (for example, you seem to have your logo shown throughout your videos, and SkillShare doesn't like that, although Udemy allows it.)

There is one exception - if you have accepted the terms for Udemy for Business (UFB) and your course is published on UFB, they do require exclusivity to Udemy. 

One more thing - you'll want to remove the direct link to your course in your post before an admin tells you do so (that's against the forum rules intended to prevent self-promotion in the group.)

If you select a course in your instructor dashboard, you'll see a little gear icon in the upper right corner of the course screen. From there it will tell you if you have opted into UFB and other information.

Thank you so much. You helped me a lot. .) I have opted into UFB, now I write to Udemy support to remove me from UFB, hope they will do that asap.
