I have published a course on udemy. Is there any restrictions in loading the same course to some other platform?

Hi @DamanDevSood our 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. 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 or for free in another platform if you are charging for it at Udemy. If you have further questions, please send an email to instructorsupport@udemy.com.

@DamanDevSood Eliana didn't mention that if you want your courses to be included in Udemy for Business you must sign an exclusivity agreement. There are two sides to this business - the marketplace and the business subscription side. The Udemy Business subscription side is the more rapidly growing part of the business. So, consider whether or not you want to be included in that catalog.

 Thanks for the heads-up  @LawrenceMMiller@DamanDevSood Once you have opted into the Udemy Business program, your courses may be considered for inclusion in the Udemy Business collection by the content curation team if they meet the required quality and topic strategy criteria.

 

If you will like to get more details, please send an email to instructorsupport@udemy.com.

In addition to my own website, my course is already on another B2B platform that offers subscription-based training to organizations. This is a private platform that does not require exclusivity. (I'm not talking about Skillsoft and similar which are publicly available for anyone to join).

 

Our clients are primarily organizations so I put the course Udemy primarily to make it cheaply available for those people who do not have business backing to access it. However, if it ever gets more traction on the general site and is considered for selection to UFB (probably unlikely since it is new with very few reviews and is competing with well established courses) it would be a nice bonus. My question is, "does the fact that it is already on a different site preclude it from being included?"

 

I ask this because the policy states "if your course is selected for inclusion, you will not begin to offer any equivalent on-demand content on any competitor site or platform other than your own". I will not begin.

 

I think it is unlikely that businesses subscribing to UFB will also subscribe to similar services and vice versa. Therefore perhaps the competition is perhaps less about what individual courses are available on each site but rather between the platforms themselves. For example, cost, quality in general, set up, customer service etc.
