My name is Laurence Svekis
I teach web and digital technologies
The varitey of topics taught on Udemy is amazing
I use to create training courses on CDs back in 2002
I use to sell them on ebay etc, worked well until $10 CDs started coming onto the market. The beginning of the end of that.
I'm sorry I can't make a video at the moment but I've got to say that I'm really glad to be here. My name is Anas Abba and I'm currently creating a Forex Trading Courses on the platform.
It's really nice to meet you all.
I'm Joy, Chief Engineer at Fleet Nav Systems. I've been building online courses via other web platforms for about a year now, but am pretty new to Udemy. Currently checking it out to see if this is another (or better) platform I can use for my courses as well. 🙂
I hope you will find a home here on Udemy. It is a wonderful community and a powerful platform to reach others and change lives. Make yourself at home!

Hello Everyone! 🙂
Great to be here.
I am Keval Domadia. I do many things but mainly I write and code. 🙂
With almost a decade of experience in Information Technology, I am here to share the ' step by step' right method to engineer an app, both web and mobile!
I have always been a student too, to sum up, I have learnt a great deal from Jorge Escobar (Flask on Python) and Rob Percival (NodeJS)
I am also a published biographer. 🙂
Nice to meet you all 🙂
I am Kelly and I am creating courses in Leadership and Professional Development. I have my own Leadership and PD company based in Perth, Western Australia.
To date I have liked reading that most instructors starting have the same fears as I did - filming yourself.. working out how to edit etc.... and I love the support from those that are "old hats"... they are right... it does get easier and it can also be funny watching back when you first start filming to where you progress to once you relax and be confident!
Fun Fact... while my company is based in Perth.. I am currently living in Cambodia managing a social responsibility e-learning project... as well as running my company remotely..
*also can't make a video at the moment as I am currently sitting at Denpasar airport at 4am waiting for a flight back to Perth after travelling from Siem Reap/Bangkok/Denpasar for a quick trip home to run a course!
You've got an amazing story to tell and I, for one, am eager to hear more about you and learn from you. Given your introduction it seems that we share professional interests, have possible synergies and compatible expertise--I have a half dozen courses live on Udemy in leadership development currently and a new project currently underway. If you want any help or wish to connect, please don't hesitate to reach out to this amazing community that has taught me so much, and also let me know how I can support you.

I'm Diane Riggins. I'm a writer. I write adult and YA fantasy (epic/urban) and paranormal novels and short stories. I'm also a screenwriter. I'm brand new to teaching on Udemy and in middle of creating my first course. I want to create courses centered around writing and about the genres I write in. I look forward to learning from everyone as I move through each step of the process to publish my first class. I'm currently earning my MFA in Creative writing with a certification in teaching writing online. A fun fact about me is that I'm a gamer.
Hey, I'm Fabian - and still working on my first Udemy course; offline I teach a variety of soft skill (nonviolent communication, NLP, marketing, …) and IT topics (HTML, SEO, …). I am a trainer (teaching 1:x) and also a coach (supporting 1:1).
The most interesting thing I have learnt from other instructors is how many different approaches there are to any given topic – I really like the polyvocality :-).
Fun fact: I kind of live in a library :-D.
Ok Fabien ... you've got my attention! Tell us more about the kind of library you live in and post a picture...sounds like my kinda' place!
And welcome! Make yourself at home here at Udemy ... I think it will be your kinda' place too.
