Thanks for posting this. I'm @drewprof wrote: I joined Udemy about six months ago and posted a single course at that time. It was priced in the lowest tier but sat there with no subscriptions until I changed it to free. Within days the subscription numbers skyrocketed. That encouraged me to publish another free course and a paid one. Again the latter in the lowest pricing tier. Subscriptions for the free courses kept increasing to 1600 while nothing for the paid one. Take it back, yesterday someone signed up for it then somehow withdrew. I am probably coming to the conclusion that my material must be horrible and that I should give up. I have been teaching for decades but I think I must not fit this medium and should forget about it. Or, is it possible that this platform attracts people looking for free stuff and I might as well stick to youtube if that's the case? very new to Udemy but I have experience of delivering courses on other platforms and face to face. I'm just about to put a course on Udemy but couldn't decide whether to put on a paid or free course. Your post, and the answers, have helped me to decide. The free version is going on first.
