How to choose a course topic?

An important part of creating your first course on Udemy is deciding what you want to teach. Our community is full of instructors who are experts in a variety of topics that go from computer science to personal development to arts and crafts. In this post, we'll walk you through a few steps you can take to select your ideal course topic. 

1. Create a list: Start by creating a list of 5 topics that you could teach. Here are a few questions you can ask yourself to get your thoughts flowing:

  • What are you passionate about?
  • What are you really good at?
  • What do people come to you for advice on?
  • What have you taught before?
  • What can you teach differently from others?

 

2. Research: Besides establishing yourself as an expert, it's equally important to teach something that students need. Narrow down your options by using our Marketplace Insights tool – this will help you identify, validate and refine your topics based on marketplace demand and competition.

3. Define your audience: Once you know which topic to teach, define your audience. Think about who you are teaching for. This will help you focus your course content to be relevant to these students and what they will learn and be able to achieve by the end of the course.
