We know that you are the expert on your topic. That’s why you share your knowledge with others on Udemy, as many other instructors do. A typical Udemy course has only one instructor, like the schoolteacher who prepares a lecture and stands alone in front of a class. That’s a pretty traditional picture. Does it need to be like this? Who said that there is only one instructor allowed? Well, there are no restrictions on the numbers of instructors. In today’s article, we would like to investigate if the number of instructors involved in the course creation makes a difference in your success on Udemy or not.
Many instructors sell courses to students on their own websites or marketplaces like Udemy or Skillshare. These revenue paths are well understood among the instructor community. But many instructors are not aware of the opportunity in licensing their courses.
How many human senses exist? Right, there are six senses. When we talk about online teaching, instructors have to make do with only two senses: seeing and hearing. Today’s topic is about the hearing part and therefore your voice.

Want to learn a new skill? You can simply “learn” it on Udemy.
