Maximum length for a video lecture?

Go to solution

I think I saw a maximum time limit for a lecture - but can't find it in the help section. Is there a limit?

Hello @RPavlis There is no maximum video length but we recommend videos be between 2-6 minutes long. For more information about our requirements please see the Udemy Course Quality Checklist.

 

Hope this helps!

Dear Eliana,
Will it be a problem if I have a video for more than 3 hours as my course was set up like a workshop, so I cannot cut it in 10 minutes for example.

@ChrisG This is a subject on which there is real research. Check the references in this https://community.udemy.com/t5/First-time-Course-Creation/Lecture-Effectiveness-The-Research/m-p/141....

 

I used to live on corporate workshops. Even when live, people don't want to sit through a three hour lecture. I am sure your video can be cut down into sections that are maybe fifteen minutes at the most. No one is going to watch a three hour video.

I try to keep them under ten minutes. It is a bit hard to cover many subjects in 3-6 minutes. But, the research says.... you lose attention over that time.

None other than upload size limit.

I would recommend staying between 3-8 minutes and not going above 10-12 minutes, at that point student interest starts dropping off.

IF you have long videos/topics, you can do part 1, part 2, part 3 etc.
