Udemy Media Courses Review

Media has always had a big influence on people’s lives. Ever since the internet came into the picture, however, it went from being a big influence to being an incredibly big influence. These days, we are surrounded by media pretty much 24/7, for better or for worse.



Media, Everywhere

One aspect which gained an immense amount of popularity in a very minimal amount of time is that of social media. Websites like Facebook and Twitter are changing the way we live our lives, and that is a fundamental shift.

Udemy has hundreds of courses on digital media and publication. These courses deal with books, movies, music, and other forms with which we communicate and share information.

The Udemy media front page consists of the top paid courses, top free courses, and new and noteworthy courses in the media category. These include How To Become a Bestselling Author on Amazon Kindle ($297), Audio Editing Techniques for Instructors and Professionals ($29), Endless Nonfiction Book Ideas – You’ll Never Run Out Again (Free), and The Complete Udemy Instructor Course: Teach Full Time Online ($199).

What’s Cooking?

One of the most popular Udemy Media Courses is How to Make Professional Looking Cooking Videos, by Michelle Johnson. This is a course that teaches individuals how to get a cooking video channel on YouTube going, without the help of a film crew. The course is $57, and it is a beginner level course.

The course has over 36 lectures and 1.5 hours of video content. The requirements for the course are a computer, an hour of watching YouTube cooking videos, and an hour of watching videos which were professionally produced, like those which are shown on the Food Network or FineCooking.com.

This course is meant for anyone who is interested in starting their own cooking channel on YouTube, or anyone who is interested in making cooking videos in general. Everything is done step-by-step, and it is a must have course for any food bloggers who are interested in upping their game.

During the course, students will be taught the fundamentals of all great videos, including how to adjust the lighting in order to get the best possible footage, how to get the best possible audio, and how to format the video for online audiences; hardware and software considerations; and tools and tips on proper time-management (in order to have the time to make videos). Johnson also reveals her personal “secret sauce” for production of cooking videos, which makes editing a lot easier. However, this course is NOT an editing course. An entirely separate course on editing cooking videos is also available by the same instructor.

Johnson has produced a video per week for the past couple of years, and now has nearly 30,000 subscribers. Johnson began making cooking videos in 2012, and is very excited to share her tips and tricks on how to make a successful cooking video.

Udemy has some related topics on the front page of the media section, including web development, design tools, communications, and instructional design.
