When does my course "updated"?

Hi

I'm pretty new to Udemy. 

I have a quick question to which I couldn't find an answer elsewhere.

I see courses with "Updated July 2, 2019". I wonder what is the definition / criteria of "update"? Does it include just a font change or you need to add a complete new section or chapter....?

I'd appreciate it if someone with experience here could help me.

I just go in and make changes to an article every month.

Hi @Mike Takada Even you have recently updated your course, there is a criteria for course changes that our product team has set in order for the "last updated" information to change. There is a bar that must be reached involving a certain amount of updates to your course content, before the “last updated” information changes.

 

As a means to help ensure the integrity of our marketplace, we aren't able to share that criteria externally.

 

In case you have further questions, please reach out to instructorsupport@udemy.com.

Hi everyone,

I have added a word document to one of my courses as an action to promote the course enrollment during black Friday, but I can see that last updated date didn't change. Is the course only update when I upload a video?

No. I uploaded a video, and changed the title slightly to reflect the current nature of the course, and it still says the wrong "last updated" date.
