02:09

Uploading a promotional video for your course is an important part of having a Udemy course, but it is not a requirement. (if you don't upload a promo video, Udemy simply uses your first lecture as the promo video)

In this lecture, I show you how I handle this in a way that streamlines the process of getting my Udemy course publshed.

04:17

Before uploading your entire course, it would be a good idea to first upload an initial test video so that the Udemy team can review it and give you a thumbs up or a thumbs down and, if so, give you helpful pointers for improving the quality of your video.

This is especially true of you are using "face-to-camera" video where lighting / focus is important.

Although my method involves mainly using screencast videos (and therefore means there are less variables that could go wrong) I would still recommend uploading a test video here before going through with recording your entire course. Better to know in advance that your course videos need work than to have to re-record an entire course, right? :)

We'll walk through the steps to take to upload a test video here.

06:23
