2023 Top Udemy Instructors

Since the Spring of 2020, I’ve been tracking Udemy instructors I’ve found to have over one million students enrolled in their courses. Following is the result of my latest research completed on July 21, 2023, at 7:20 pm MT. While I only list the top 12 here, a lot more have surpassed the Million Student Enrollment mark. Jose Portilla is still in first place with 3,422,815 students as of this day. Dr. Angela Yu is new on the list. Please check out the changes:
