Each course is taught by an expert instructor who has created the course. Udemy hosts the courses created by thousands of instructors from the world over. The website does not charge anything for hosting the course. This means that you can host as many courses as you want on Udemy without having to pay a single cent. The price of your course can range from $10 to $50.
Since hosting courses on Udemy does not cost anything, a person with expertise in any field can opt to create a course and host it on this website. Students interested in your course will then enroll themselves for your course on Udemy after paying the fee of the course.
Udemy has a revenue system which dictates that if the students enroll using instructor coupons, the instructor gets to keep 97% of the revenue share. However, if the students enroll without using the instructor coupons then the website gets 50% of the revenue while the remaining 50% goes to the instructor. So, the more students you are able to attract, the more money you stand to make.
