Hello fellow instructors. I teach a tech course on Udemy. I recently recreated the entire course because the user interface of the tech tool I teach has changed. New content is 20 hours long and the old content is 10 hours long. Is it better practice to keep the old 10 hours of content archived at the bottom of the course? Or is it better to unpublish it completely? The old content is still useful and usable but would be hard for students to follow along. The reason I ask is because the course completion rate might drop because students decide to only watch the first 20 of the 30 hours. I assume this is not good engagement for the Udemy algorithm which may affect my SEO. Plus, less students leave with their certificate of completion (which is good free advertising on LinkedIn when they post it). My course is also part of UFB so watch time is important in my case. So should I keep the old 10 hours of content or should I unpublish it? Any advice is highly appreciated.

Hi Instructors, I am wondering if it is against Udemy's policy to hire someone to answer my course Q&A section instead of me the instructor doing it myself. I saw that I can add users to collaborate with my course and allow only Q&A permissions for that user. If I am allowed to do this, what are some best practices for this? I was thinking of creating a new Udemy Account for my assistant and name the account "Course Support" or "[Course Name] Assistant" or something similar so that my students still know that the answer is coming from "myself" as opposed to another random student. I look forward to your reply!
