Hi @LucindaSage942, awesome idea! A student community is a great way to connect your learners. At this time, it is not possible to create a student community directly on Udemy, but I recommend taking a look at this article to see all the different ways you can engage with your learners on the platform.
We also have this post where we asked instructors if they had a student community, I think this is the perfect resource for you! Many instructors have shared where they host their communities, how they manage them, best practices, and more.
Bella, Thanks for answering my question. I'm used to teaching college where the online component has a "forum" section. I'll check out the videos. I'm still in the "test student" stage but I want to get this worked out before I have paying students. Lucinda
