Hi there!

 

Welcome aboard, our community is excited to have you here! We'd love to get to know you better, so here's a place for you to introduce yourself (if you’d like) and meet other members as they join.

 

Some questions you may answer to get your thoughts flowing:

 

  • Who are you?
  • Where are you from?
  • What is your teaching area?
  • Why did you join the Instructor Community?
  • Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

 

Good to know:

 

Cheers!

Looking forward to it. I'm on the edge already. Can't wait to see what the journey is like. 

I just got my course approved today and I'm super-excited. I know this is just the beginning though and the work is just starting. 

 

I will appreciate all the advice to get things moving. I want to see how this will do before I start working on another course, so I can learn from this experience to produce a better course.

 

So @MelanieStevens183, what's the next move you advise? How do I get people to look the way of my course? How did you go about your journey?

Oh how exciting! So what I did (bearing in mind I only have 1 course out so I’m still a newbie!) is promote the course with people I know. Friends, other self employed business owners who I knew would want to take it, and I mentioned it in Facebook groups I belong to, on all my social media channels etc. I also mentioned it whenever I was chatting to someone who I felt would enjoy it! 

The coupons are great, offer a discount if you wish as people love to get a bargain! You can find them in your dashboard, click on your course and click ‘Promotions’. Good luck! ️ 

Oh great! Thanks a lot. That sure helps. I'll do some promotions here and there and let you know how that goes. 

Congratulations. Can I have a link, please

Hi all, 

 

Shukki here from Chiang Mai, Thailand. I've been teaching English (and a little bit of Thai) for the past two years and am looking forward to the next step of my teaching journey: Udemy. 

 

I'm planning to create a beginner's course for anyone who wishes to learn Thai. 

 

Other than teaching, I love playing badminton, walking dogs and going hiking. Oh and most importantly, I love good food 🙂 Looking forward to being a part of this wonderful community and to learn amazing things from everyone. 

Welcome to Udemy. I'm sure Thai is an interesting language to learn. Feel welcome.

Thank you 🙂

Hi welcome aboard 

Hi - my name is Amanda Hill - I started a company called The Social Media Cafe in 2010 and run a training and digital consultancy. We specialise in social and eCommerce and during lockdown, we sold 7 figures on Amazon ourselves. Businesses we work with have hit up to 6 figures.

 

I started as a journalist at 17 and worked for a national UK newspaper before digital stuff was a thing and have always taught something to others.

My training room and office is above our prep centre in Hoddesdon, Hertfordshire and we have 2 resident office cats. We also have a rescue hamster and fish and a possibly pregnant young cat downstairs who we enticed out of the skip outside and has stayed til we can find out if she is or isn't expecting.. hopefully soon as we can't get close enough.

Thanks for sharing inspiring story. Welcome to Udemy World.🎉

@AmandaHill

@Bella I’m currently exploring Mexico…planning my 5th trip for 2023. Every time it’s to a different region, and I stay in local areas to experience the real daily life. They have a great luxury bus system, so I can name a bunch of places I’ve been to, and it’s been easy to navigate because of this. What I love so far is that people are kind and helpful, patient….and the food….wow.

Welcome to the instructors community.

Wow! 51 countries? That's a lot!

👋 Hello @Nflight 

Hi everyone,

 

So great to have such a great platform to teach through.

 

I'm Eleftherios and I live in Dublin, Ireland. I am originally from Greece.

 

I'm an investment management professional with a decade of experience and I am also building a gamified financial education platform. I am passionate about technology and I am using AI to help me with my business. I am teaching how technology can improve work.

 

I used to be a semi-pro basketball player but I had to pay my bills, so now I am just playing pick up games.

@Eleftherios Laliotis Yiasou…I’ve been to Dublin twice…cool place. My parents immigrated to the US from Cyprus…..so my heritage is Greek. Great to connect! 

Welcome to the platform.

Ahmed Jendoubi, Ph.D.

Hi, there.

As an expert in Building Information Modeling (BIM) and Revit, I have made it my mission to educate and empower the next generation of engineers and students. With roots in Lebanon and now residing in Saudi Arabia, I have honed my skills in utilizing various structural design software.

I have taken my passion for BIM, Revit, and structural design to the next level by joining Udemy, an advanced platform for professional development. Not only did I once join Udemy as a student, taking a PMP course, but now I am giving back as an instructor. My goal is to share my wealth of experience with others and provide valuable insights into the world of BIM and Revit.

Welcome to the platform.

Thank you so much.

  • Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

I'm preoccupied with eating Hummus and skateboarding. Everything else just doesn't seem important. Even when I teach at university which I do enjoy I find myself looking out the window on a sunny day asking myself how did I get here, definitely should be out skating.

@RonErez What flavor of hummus? I love mixing in jalapeños.

Just regular hummus with chickpeas and tahini.

 

Some times I'll add some roasted bell peppers or roasted eggplant which is quite nice.

 

Never tried hummus with jalapeños. Sounds very interesting.

👋Hello! @JackBosma 

Hello!

 

My name is John Godoy and I am from Chicago!

 

I have published one course on communication skills, and plan to create more in that field as well as human performance, and confidence.

 

I joined the instructor community for several reasons:


1)  To get a better understanding of how the Udemy platform works

2) To learn some course creation best practices

3) To assist others where I can

A fun fact about me is that I have a patent on an exercise device that I co-invented and brought to market. 

Hi @JohnGodoy I think communicating is a top skill we all need to continually improve. When I teach live courses, students enjoy the role playing of skills. Question is, how do we emulate that with online courses? Open to your input & wisdom.

Consider a Zoom meeting link.

Hello everyone!,  I am Ma. Luisa Loque, from Philippines but currently working in Oman as Staff Training and Development Officer.  I have more than 25 years of teaching experience in Business and IT subjects.

 

I joined this community as I am interested to upgrade my skills in new platforms and methodology of teaching.
