Hi, I have found that learners who enroll on Udemy courses are dedicated to learning which is why they make the decision to pay for good quality courses. This in itself gives you a sense of fulfillment that you are helping and encouraging people who are taking their learning journeys seriously, or at least seriously enough to invest in it. I first joined Udemy while still teaching in college. I used Udemy to host a course on creating sprite based artwork. My initial intention was just something to share with my students who were often struggling with the artwork. The course was being offered for free and I enjoyed making it. My students enjoyed it too and I found it a great way to teach in a slightly different way. Then when I continued to develop courses I realised I enjoyed making these videos more than teaching in front of classes. It's a lot less stressful and you set the learning objectives not an external qualification provider - so this means you can tailor your course to what you think the learner will enjoy the most. I have always been dedicated to helping others to learn, which is why I do this. Getting good reviews and feedback from the learners makes this all worthwhile, as you know you are making a difference in their lives. You can of course make a good profit from Udemy, or you can offer only free courses - your choice. You can of course make courses for Udemy, youtube and other providers, perhaps each with a different objective. Imagine that you had quick tips videos on Youtube and then promoted your more in depth course on Udemy that teaches you everything from beginner to Pro. The students who really want to learn would enjoy taking your advanced course.
