First time instructor

Go to solution

Hi there

I am S S Tripathy,Retired Professor of Chemistry of 65 years age, Indian.

My first course in Udemy is in market place from today. It is a Chemistry intermediate level foundation course 

I am bit anxious about it while at the same time very happy. 

How long it takes for a new instructor to get going in market? Any idea?

I have put in my 40 plus years of teaching experience in making the course great.

Lets see the outcome. 

Fingers crossed. 

Any suggestion?

Thanks 

SS Tripathy

Hi @SudhansuTri907 

 

The first thing you have to look at is your competition. I see you created a course on chemistry. I did a Udemy search on Chemistry and got almost 500 courses back. So you are going to have a lot of competition.

 

Also, your course is priced at $95. Most Udemy students are not accustomed to spending that kind of money for a course. You might want to think about lowering that quite a bit until you get a number of students, and good ratings. Then you might be able to raise your price.

 

The key is to be patient. You picked a very crowded area to publish a course so it could take a while to gain some traction with students. Don't expect too much too soon.
