"Let me be clear, this course should be commissioned by Udemy and given to all instructors. I am convinced this would serve the students as well as the instructors. If you are an Instructor this will jump start your numbers be it dollars or pupils. This course is like Google Analytics for a web site and without it you are blind. Statistics in graphic form has been very successfully used by Professor Hans Rosling,you can see his presentations on TED. The presentation style is crisp,clear and to the point. Clear statements are made when "opinions" of the presenter are present. Simply brilliant Mr. Colley."

"A Must For All Udemy Instructors - In this course John answered every question I had about pricing and positioning my course on Udemy along with a lot of questions I hadn't even thought of in the areas of number of lectures, length of individual lectures, course sub-categorization and much more. For example, I learned that courses priced just $2 more than what I have priced my course at, generate almost double the amount of total revenue on average. That is what I would call an important piece of actionable information. If you are an active Udemy instructor or are considering building a course for this platform, I highly recommend this course to you."

"Very impressive course, and amount of work from John Colley (i.e data collection and analysis). This course is very valuable for instructors or instructors-to-be, in order to understand the Udemy landscape of all other courses, to pinpoint the perfect category for your course and price it wisely. I started John's course yesterday and already finished it and watched the key lectures several times."
