This article explains how to complete a lecture or course item (including PDFs, practice tests, and quizzes) as you progress through your courses. In order to access your certificate of completion, all lectures and relevant course curriculum items will need to be marked as complete.
How do I know if a lecture is complete?
Under Course Content, a checkmark will appear next to any lecture or course item that is complete.
Please note: On Udemy Business, lectures and course items cannot be manually marked as complete, and checkboxes cannot be manually adjusted. If you receive a popup message close to the checkbox, please move your cursor away from the screen.
How to Complete a Lecture or Course Item
Follow the steps based on the type of lecture and/or course item:
Video lectures: Watch the full video from beginning to end to complete the lecture.
Text and PDF-based lectures: Keep the page open until the lecture is marked as complete. If PDFs or links are included, please open these resources as well.
Assignments: View steps on how to complete an assignment.
- Please note: Assignments do not need to be complete in order to complete the course. You can move forward without having a checkmark on them and you will still receive a certificate.
Quizzes: Every quiz question must be answered without skipping to be completed.
Practice tests: You must receive a passing score based on the percentage required to pass to complete the lecture. Learn about taking practice tests.
Slide lectures (presentations): All slides must be opened to complete the lecture. Click on the left and right icons to move slides.
