Teachinguide’s platform aims to provide online instructors with the tools they need to grow their online course audience and sales.
We’ve found that with over 57,000 Udemy instructors and over 100,000 Udemy courses (and growing), that, for instructors, it’s very difficult to get the information and insights you need to be competitive.
It can be overwhelming to try to find great course topics and the right keywords to target while searching through hundreds of course categories and sub-categories.
Teachinguide makes it easy for instructors to get the full picture of what’s happening on Udemy and with your courses.
What’s more – ever since we conducted our online instructor survey one year ago, we’ve been taking your feedback and using it to improve our product and service.
As a reminder, here’s a summary from the survey of what you told us your top challenges are as a Udemy instructor.

Introducing the Teachinguide Google Chrome Extension!
The new Teachinguide Google Chrome extension is a powerful, easy to use tool that will help you in your course research efforts and save you a lot of time and money in the process.
You can download it from the Google Play store here.
This extension will make researching your course topic, keywords, and competitors from right within the Udemy platform much much easier and insightful.
With the Teachinguide Chrome extension tool, you get important data and insights on five Udemy page-types
See a list of all courses for your chosen Udemy course Category. See trends, average monthly enrollments, average monthly engagements, and 12 different statistics for each course in the Category.
As you look at courses on a Udemy Category page, the Chrome extension tool allows you to view the complete enrollment history for any course, including reviews. You can also see if the course is trending and if excessive promotions have been used to get enrollments.
As with course Categories, you get all the same statistics for your chosen Subcategory search on Udemy.
Most useful perhaps in the Subcategory view is the new “opportunity score” located at the top of your screen using the Chrome extension tool. This score ranges from 1-10 and represents the overall profit potential of the niche topic on your screen.
The opportunity score is based on an analysis of demand and competition for the Subcategory or Topic. The tool provides you additional insights on each of these two factors.
No course topic ideas? No problem!
If you don’t have any idea of what course you want to create or what Categories and Topics will be most in-demand, you can use the Chrome tool’s niche keyword function. It will give you a broader picture of the search terms appropriate for your target course Topic.
This view also presents you with an opportunity score for each relevant keyword phrase, which will give you an idea of the Topic’s potential.
4. Keyword rankings
You get many new insights into keywords using the Teachinguide Chrome extension. Engage the extension tool and it will show you a dashboard of related courses for a keyword, individual course enrollments, as well as averages for enrollments, students, reviews, course badges, keyword trends, and much more.
You can access keywords that any course you’re interested in (i.e. a competitor’s course) is ranking for. The tool will then show you a “word cloud” of relevant keywords, that shows you the rank of that particular course for those keywords.
In addition, the size of the keyword phrase text in the word cloud tells you the relative search demand for that keyword within Udemy. This information is the best indicator of your sales potential for the keyword.
Using this more powerful keyword tool you can craft better course titles and descriptions that are relevant to Udemy search results and which rank for the most relevant keywords. Teachinguide’s extension will also recommend niche keywords to consider, giving you a head start on your competition.
Search your competitors or your favorite instructors within Udemy. You’ll see their ranking on Udemy, the entire list of courses they offer, average monthly enrollments across all courses, and all of their course by course statistics. It’s a great way to see what your competition is doing and learn how to be different or better, and what you need to watch out for.
If you are already an instructor or if you are new to Udemy, finding the right courses to teach on Udemy and learning how to optimize them for ranking would be a very time-consuming process.
Not anymore – with the new Teachinguide chrome extension, you can gather all the data you need in minutes!
