I have made three free courses recently on different topics, about 4 to 5 students are enrolling for my courses on a daily basis but when tried to see the students engagement with the courses, to my surprize only few students are watching the videos but most of them are not even watching the videos even 1 %. Is it normal with free courses!.
I welcome your valuable suggestions and advices.

@SRINIVASGOUNI - You really do not want to produce free courses. 99% of the signups you get are from bots which search the Udemy landscape looking for free courses and then sign up. I have no idea why this happens but it does. These signups will never become actual students (usually).
Secondly, Udemy prevents you from sending promotions to any real students that do sign up for your course. Therefore, there is very little reason to offer a free course.
