Post your content in a digital online course through Udemy – It’s really easy!

As you know, I recently set up my Seal the Deal stuff as a Udemy course.  When I first blogged about Udemy, I had not yet had my affiliate link, which I now do have, so if you want to set yourself up as an instructor and put your content on Udemy, please use this link, so I get credit for referring you:

I found it to be REALLY easy to do.  There is no cost to setting up your course (or courses) and you can set your own price on your courses once you upload them.  The copyright to your intellectual property always remains yours.
It’s kind of a no-brainer for anyone with quality content!
It took me about an hour to set up my instructor account and upload and organize my 23 modules (they call them lectures) for my course:

About Udemy

Udemy is an incredible community platform that makes it easy for anyone to build an online course. Instructors can use video, PowerPoint, PDFs, audio, zip files and live classes to quickly build a course and share their expertise with anyone in the world with an internet connection. Students can take courses across a great breadth of categories, including: business & entrepreneurship, academics, the arts, health & fitness, language, music, technology, games, and more.
Udemy’s goal is to disrupt and democratize the world of education by enabling anyone to teach and learn online. Just as blogging democratized the publishing industry, Udemy seeks to dramatically change education by empowering millions of experts to teach & share what they know.

The future of education is outside the class room and Udemy is really pulling the bar. Thanks for this post. Shayne

You are right! I’d love to see options like Udemy and Khan Academy start to force the University markets to curb their exorbitant tuitions!

It seems interesting, but how many sales do the courses have?
I see they show subscribers and some courses seem to be with recurring payments. But how about courses for a single download?

It’s up to you. You could offer your courses for free or sell them. What do you mean by a single download? The courses I saw on there all had multiple modules (they call them lectures), and in a variety of media. Subscribers only pay the one time but can access the content anytime.
