Title: Teaching on Online through Udemy
Post by: Tobias on November 06, 2017, 10:00:22 PM
Have any Mustachians published a course on Udemy?  I've heard educators can make a passive income there.  I am a full-time lecturer at a public university, and love my job, but I'm always looking for my next side hustle.  I was curious if Udemy was a viable place to publish some of the courses I'm already teaching at university.

The courses that tend do best on Udemy are the technical type courses, particular web development, although a cool thing about Udemy is that they are open to you creating a course in almost anything, free market style. They have a large pool of students so you could get some extra exposure and quite possibly sales without any marketing on your part. Having said that, Iíve noticed that Udemy tends to reward teachers that do their own marketing by following up on the teacherís efforts with promos from Udemyís marketing department. Itís impossible to predict how well a particular course would do but if you are attracted to the idea of making a video based course and you have some time & knowledge to share, then itís a nice project to do. If you treat the income as a bonus, you canít go wrong. Good luck!
