Wish I came across this post before I posted my first course in May 2019. My sales saw double digit growth MOM with August being an absolute delighter. However, the first 8 days of September have been extremely quite with the traffic to my landing page reducing by 50% and the conversion rate dipping from mid double digits to 6%. I was begining to blame the new pricing/promotion scheme launched by Udemy this month for this. Thanks for easing the anxiety of new instructors Scott. Have another course in the pipeline. Will move heaven and earth to publish it in the next month.

Hi, I am a new instructor and my course has been live on the platform for almost 6 weeks. I have close to 160 students and some of the students are complaining about video blurriness and streaming issues. Most of these students have very high speed internet connection (>50MBPS) so slow interent connection can not be the issue here. I used Udemy's recommended video settings and recorded HD (1080P) videos. Most of my videos are screencast of programming lectures so claity of the video quality is a must. I have been advising students experiencing this issue to download the lectures for offline viewing (which resolves the blurriness issue). But is there somethig that can be done to resolve this issue. Thanks and Regards, Mayank
