Hi @ChrystieV 

 

Thank you for explaining these ranks! I appreciate these efforts!

However, I still see some issues. I guess the ranks you mentioned are in order. For example, a specialist progresses to attain the rank of mentor progresses to become a visionary progresses to become a role model. But the individual profile says something else. For example, for me, the next step, it says, become a specialist! Not a big issue, but its confusing.

Thank you @AnupShukla for catching this. We have updated the ranks above to accurately reflect the progression of the ranks. You are correct, as a visionary your next rank will be Specialist.

Thanks it gives one something to aim and look forward to.  It is interesting. 

Katılıyorum 👍

Thank you for the explanation I can understand the ranks.

Not sure why this was a necessary change, but thanks for the explanation.

It's encouraging to have these ranks. I have a question: does an instructor have one overall rank, or do they have a different rank for each language?

Thanks, team!

Hi @RaquelCoelho, great question! Your rank will remain the same, regardless of the community you're engaging with. The only thing you'll notice is that your rank will be localized when visiting different language communities, but your progress will be the same. I hope this helps!

Thank you for explaining that, @Bella ! That made sense! I think what confused me was that I was in one of the communities and by the time I had moved into the other community, I must have passed a threshold to another rank. Funny!

Thank you @Bella, for sharing such important information

😘 We know the ladder steps better now, thank you @ChrystieV .

Thank you for outlining the ranking system. Udemy's approach of encouraging instructors to engage in communication, participation, and collaboration within the community is an innovative method. This not only makes the instructors feel valued, but also ensures that their efforts are rewarded.

The ranking system encourages anyone to work harder as they look forward to achieving a better rank.

Thank you.

Thank you, ChristieV

i appreciate the list- I’m still a rookie but k try to be a good listener and also learned next to telling my experience from different topics which could be valuable for the community.

So far its such a good vibe 🙂

Thank you for a well spelt article.

Thank you @ChrystieV for a detailed explanation of the Udemy Community Ranks.
Personally, I view these ranks as a gentle note to encourage all of us, whenever time allows, to give and get advice on various aspects of courses creation/delivery/teaching styles, so that we can stay teachers/learners in the community.
Best regards,

Got it.
Thanks!

Thank you for sharing this insightful post on the Udemy Community Ranks! It's great to see that Udemy is acknowledging and encouraging active participation within the community.

As a newcomer to the community, it's exciting to see the potential for growth and recognition as we continue to engage with other instructors and share our knowledge and experiences. I look forward to contributing to discussions and exploring the community to reach the highest rank of Role Model.

I believe that by actively participating and contributing to the community, we not only build our own credibility but also help to create a supportive and collaborative environment for all instructors to learn and grow together. Let's continue to make the Udemy community a positive and enriching space for everyone!

Awesome thank you!

 

what are the financial benefits of these ranks? should we spend more time to guide the new comers free of cost and running this community or should we pay for this? Udemy's team should consider these points to cover the loopholes that still depriving the rights of instructors financial aid/benefits monthly.

i think the ranks and badges are more for you and I and help us learn and get better. it also incentives engagement...because everyone likes a badge.

Great Guide and info

Useful post. My rank just changed to the Observer with the publishing of my second course on Sketchnoting. I was wondering what it meant and came across your post. Thank you for making things clear for Udemy Community. I appreciate your efforts to provide answers and create engagement in the community.

Thankyou, this is helpful.

Thanks for providing this valuable information. It will help the other instructors to grow the mentality to help others.

Dear @ChrystieV,

This is a wonderful system to foster engagement, learning, and growth within the Udemy Instructor community. As part of the team AITCD, we appreciate this structured approach, giving everyone a clear path to become more involved and make meaningful contributions.

Being part of this community provides an excellent opportunity for us all to learn from each other, share our experiences, and strive for constant improvement. These ranks serve not only as a measure of our engagement but also as motivation to be more active and helpful to our peers.

We look forward to embarking on this journey, rising through the ranks, and becoming active, valuable contributors to this amazing community. We believe this initiative can make a significant impact on instructor development and the overall quality of courses on the platform.

Thank you for your leadership and for setting up such a clear and encouraging system!

Best regards,
