Why make a Udemy Course

Making a Udemy course is a great way to generate a passive income stream based on your skills. There are also a lot of platforms where you could sell your courses but placing it on Udemy is great because you immediately get exposure to a multitude of people that come to the platform to search for new skills to learn. 

Making a Udemy course is also not as hard as many people think. As long as you have a plan on your topic and use a few handy tools you will be able to create a course in just a few weeks, that is considering that you have another job, if this is your main focus it can be much faster than that.

How to create a Udemy Course


Create or Import media

The first step when making a course on Udemy is to create your videos. With a tool like Flixier you can easily record your screen, webcam or microphone. If you prefer to record videos with something else it’s also easy to import them in Flixier either from your computer or in minutes from cloud storage services thanks to our direct integrations.


Make Edits

Next you have to merge, cut, trim and crop your videos so that they combine together in a video that can be presented to your viewers. In this part you will remove parts you don’t like or you can add images or text on top of your video to make your ideas easier to understand. Here you can also add sounds, transitions and effects for a more professional looking video.


Publish your course

When ready making edits you can export your videos and publish them on Udemy. With Flixier this process is super fast thanks to our cloud powered processing tech. You can publish any video regardless of its length in just a few minutes on any computer.

What software do I need? 

The main software you will need to make a Udemy course is a video suite that allows you to record your screen, camera, microphone and then to make some edits to those recordings so that you can present information in a professional way. The cloud powered video editor from Flixier let’s you do all that in a simple interface while running in your browser so no software downloads or installs.

What hardware do I need? 

In the hardware department you will need a few things to get started but most of those you surely have around you. A PC or laptop to make the course edits is a must, if using Flixier to make the course it doesn’t have to be a super powerful computer because all the processing is in the cloud. You will also need a camera and a microphone, more about this in the next section.

Choose the best camera and microphone 

In the camera department you could get by with your laptops webcam but we would definitely suggest using at least your phone camera. It is much better quality than any laptop webcam and it will make a big difference. In the microphone department you should spend around $50 and get a basic microphone, it will be miles ahead of the one you have on any of your devices, we have microphone recommendations in the sections below.

Iriun webcam software

This small bit of software is extremely useful because it allows you to use your smartphone camera as a computer webcam. This makes it so much easier to record yourself directly from your computer and even directly from Flixier.

Microphone recommendation 

Using a dedicated microphone is mandatory if you want your Udemy course to have good sound quality. If you’re looking for a plug-and-play option. go for a USB microphone like the AT2020 USB, the Blue Snowball or the AT2100 or Samson Q2U if you’re on a budget.

Use SmoothDraw or Pixlr

Why use Flixier to make a Udemy Course

Record or Import

With Flixier it is super easy to record yourself, your microphone and your screen. And if you prefer to use a different camera for recording we also make it super easy to import those too. Either from your computer from the direct cloud integrations.

Cut, Crop and Merge

Our tool makes it super easy to edit your courses. Cutting unwanted parts or cropping to focus only on the right parts of the recording is super easy. Merging videos together is also a breeze with Flixier, you can just drag and drop videos one after another to easily make a video composition.

Add animated text and shapes

When it comes to making a course the possibility to add text and shapes like arrows is a must have. In Flixier you can add animated text that keeps your viewers engaged or any kind of shape to help you easily make a point.

Add Images to courses

Adding images on top of a video is a great way to get your ideas across. Charts, drawings or other kinds of images can be overlayed on a video just by dragging and dropping them.

Add Captions or Subtitles 

Adding subtitles to a video has become the expected norm these days. The trend was mostly imposed by social media platforms where videos are watched without sound. With Flixier you can automatically generate subtitles for your video with a single button press. Our cloud servers are processing your video and subtitles are added in seconds without having to lift a finger.

Super fast publishing in the browser

One of the best features of Flixier is that it is cloud powered and works in your browser. This comes with two benefits, you can access it from anywhere you can run a browser because your projects are safely backed up in the cloud. The second benefit is that you can publish any video in just a few minutes with any computer. No more spending a ton of money on expensive computers to edit video.

My main criteria for an editor was that the interface is familiar and most importantly that the renders were in the cloud and super fast. Flixier more than delivered in both. I've now been using it daily to edit Facebook videos for my 1M follower page.
