Hey Everyone,


My name is James McGregor from Australia.


I have just joined Udemy as an instructor (although I have been a student for many years) with my first course published today.  My teaching area is about combining Behavourial Science with Marketing and Communication skills to help people get better at solving important environmental and social challenges like climate change, poverty, waste etc. 


Fun fact - I am actually an electrical engineer but started working with some of the top behavioural scientists in the world trying to figure out how to best get people to take action on things like climate change and this led to me creating an award winning TV show about sustainable homes.  So these days I am also a part time TV producer!


Look forward to learning more about all of you and taking some of your courses.

Hey Everyone,

  • Who are you?

    My name is Armin and I'm a Software Engineer, specializing mostly in frontend development. I'm just in love with React
  • Where are you from?

    I'm from Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina. There is a famous film festival going on here every fall, so you might've heard about it before! 😄
  • What is your teaching area?

    My first courses used to vary a lot, because I started teaching on Udemy way before I managed to really specialize in one field. I had computer networks, mobile game development, database management, react native courses, but now I've switched my focus to web development courses... mostly Next.js, for now. In fact I just returned to Udemy this month after being inactive for quite some time.
  • Why did you join the Instructor Community?
    I actually joined the Instructor Community all the way back in the day when it was still a facebook group. Mostly I like the posts of people posting about reaching their Udemy milestones.
  • Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

    With my 3rd course on the way for September (still got 20 more days left!) I'm for sure the most active Udemy Instructor from Bosnia and Herzegovina 😄

Ranging from topics such as inclusive education, cultural adaptation and 21st century learning, I am at inspiring and forwarding our teachers and student teachers to better their knowledge in the field of education, thereby forwarding education of the future.

  • Wer bist du? Meine Name ist Sabine Schröder, ich bin seit 30 Jahren Mentalcoach
  • Woher kommst du? nahe bei Ulm in Deutschland
  • Was ist dein Lehrbereich?

    Als Mentalcoach und unterstütze ich Menschen dabei, eine klarere Wahrnehmung dazu zu bekommen, wie sich der einzelne erheben oder dem vermeintlichen Unglück entgegen steuern kann.


    Ist jemand am Boden zerstört, unglücklich, traurig und mutlos? Aus einem Gespräch mit mir, geht er immer mit einem erhobenen Gefühl, im besten Fall mit einem Lächeln. Situativ hilft das zuverlässig und unmittelbar. Langfristig modifiziere ich mit dem Klienten zusammen Ziele, teilte sie in Etappen ein so das sie leichter und schneller erreicht werden können. Die wichtigste Frage: Sind Deine Werte noch stimmig?


    Mein Motto lautet: nicht unter meinem Wert! Denn was tut man/in dem Fall Raum, nicht alles, um geliebt zu werden…


    Meine Klienten suchen nach mehr Liebe, Glück und Zufriedenheit in ihrem Leben. Ich unterstütze sie dabei, eine klarere Wahrnehmung dazu zu bekommen, wie sie sich erheben oder dem vermeintlichen Unglück oder Elend entgegen zu steuern. 



    Meine Klienten gehen mit einem erhobenen Gefühl aus unserem Gespräch. 

    Langfristig entwickeln  sie passendere Ziele, die sie in kürzerer Zeit leichter erreichen

    Ein neu festgelegter Werte-Rahmen wirkt wahre Wunder. 


    Ob Coaching, Beratung oder eine sinnvolle Kombination beider Methoden zur Hilfestellung zum Einsatz kommt, hängt  von der Persönlichkeit des Klienten ab.


  • Warum bist du der Instructor Community beigetreten? Den ersten Kurs fertig zu stellen, habe ich mir einfacher vorgestellt. Endlich den fertigen Kurs zu online zu stellen ist mein Ziel bis Ende Oktober.
  • Erzählen Sie uns eine lustige Tatsache über sich selbst! Irgendwie ist es schon lustig, dass gerade ich, die Menschen tagtäglich motiviert und bei der Umsetzung ihres Plans unterstützend begleitet, genau mit dieser Herausforderung hadert.

Who are you?

Where are you from?

Hey everyone! 👋🏼 


I’m Melanie Stevens from Devon in the UK. I live in the south west part of England, not far from the coast. 

I’m a Spiritual Teacher teaching tarot card reading & working with spirit guides, shadow work and crystal healing. I’m also a Reiki Master and animal healer so my next course might be based around energy healing 💫 


I’ve been a student on Udemy since 2019 and I love what the platform has to offer students wanting metaphysical and spiritual courses. Therefore this was my number 1 option for hosting my own courses!

A fun fact about me? I started playing the piano by ear at age 6 🎹 🎶 

Hi @MelanieStevens183,

Who are you & Where are you from?

I am Imran Zakir from Pakistan.

I have extensive experience in teaching in various institutions, including the UK, Oman, and Pakistan, over the past 15 years is truly commendable. 


What is your teaching area?

My extensive experience in teaching Accounting & Finance courses add on ChatGPT and Prompt engineering  in various universities, my dedication to the field is evident, and I trust that I have gained valuable insights and knowledge during this journey. Furthermore my academic credentials, specifically holding a Master's degree in Business Accounting from The University of Notre Dame Australia, reflect my commitment to excellence in the subject matter.


Why did you join the Instructor Community?

Reason to joined the Instructor Community to contribute my expertise and experience in teaching Accounting & Finance integration with AI courses. With over 15 years of teaching at various universities, I believe I can offer valuable insights, guidance, and support to fellow instructors and students. It's an opportunity for me to share my knowledge and collaborate with other educators, ultimately enhancing the learning experience for students and furthering the field of Accounting & Finance education.


Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

Certainly. One intriguing aspect of my professional journey is that I have had the privilege of teaching Accounting & Finance courses in multiple countries, including the UK, Oman, and my home country, Pakistan. This global experience has not only enriched my understanding of the subject matter but also allowed me to appreciate the diverse perspectives and approaches to financial education. It's been an enlightening and enjoyable aspect of my career to witness how different cultures influence the way students engage with the world of finance.

I'm Mohanad Jameel from Iraq, a chemist in the petroleum oil field. Having dedicated numerous hours to learning from various online platforms, especially Udemy, I believe it's now time to give back.

Hi @Anonymous,


Thanks for sharing with us about yourself!


We are happy to have you here in the community. I wish you the best in this new journey as an instructor at Udemy.

Hello everyone,


My name is Gertrude Chombo.

I am from Kenya.

My teaching area is Leadership and Personal Development (personal productivity and time management).


I joined the Instructor Community because I believe in learning from others especially those with whom I share interests.


I love puzzles. They help me test my knowledge, sharpen my mind, be alert and learn new things e.g. new words.


I am very excited to join this community and hope to learn how to be a great instructor and exceed my students’ expectations and help other instructors learn from me.


Thank you for the opportunity to be here.




I'm J Berrie.

I just use the initial of my first name, because that keeps it simple. I'm non-binary, so other works of mine online are sometimes under name John, and sometimes Jane.

I'm going to develop courses about high-speed digital electronics, because I've written and presented a lot about it over many years.

I'm told I'm good at making complicated subjects understandable by non-experts and this seems the right place to do it.

Realistically I shall start on this properly at the beginning of 2024.

Earlier this year I did some Udemy courses on AI to increase my knowledge and it worked really well so this seems the right platform.






Hello! Well my name is Michael and i am from Fresno California but live and work in Las Vegas Nevada, I teach barehanded as well as edged weapon combatives for urban self-protection as well as the protection of others.

And what i seek to gain from my Udemy courses is a strong student base as well as a strong network of like minded instructors.


My name is Nickolai Leschov, I'm from Saint-Petersburg, Russia, originally. I chose the recent war as an invitation to raise my indignant disagreement with what my government said my long-suffering homeland should stand for (war, violence and religious obscurantism) and join the global community that I always felt a part of. Is it still illegal to call war a war there? I don't know or care. I lived in several countries since and hope to live in some more.

I love travel, computers, learning about human nature and how these things interact.

I didn't quite figure the area in which I might be most helpful, and joind this community in my (misguided?) attempts to restore my friend's rightful ability to learn on Udemy.


Good day.

 My name is Sviatoslav.


For now, I'm living on Cyprus


I'm IT Guy working as developer near 10 years, have published first course about GIT

Have posted my course at the end of December 2023


As part of my life, I have feeling that teaching it's something that I want to do as part of my life and my career.
