Essential tools of an online instructor
Course promotions and tutors must catch the interest of potential students on the first impression. Even an exciting topic will fail if the presentation falls short. For online teaching to shine, the video and audio must be professional. That’s why students must eventually invest in the Camtasia Studio suite and a decent mic. This is the instructor’s essential toolkit.

There are some recent changes to Udemy’s policies regarding course pricing and coupon discounts, but Andrew points these out with updates.
