I’ve been designing an online course for several months and it is finally published and I have lovely, talented students from several parts of the world working through it.
It has been a BIG learning journey for me and one I have really enjoyed.
There has been much to figure out when it comes to:
- Setting up my studio
- Recording and editing
- Audio presentations
- Screen shots and video
- AND First – finding the right Online Platform for me!
So….. I thought I would write a course about how I went about setting up mine and how I got round the problems I encountered along the way.
A point though – all the online course platform sites have their own excellent, and free, courses on ‘How to create your online course’. These are very good and will get you on your way. However there were lots of things I had to figure for myself…..
When I filmed my first videos, on my iPhone, I could not see what I was filming – hence very often my hands migrated off the screen mid-demonstration! I discovered Mirroring Apps that let me view my video, on my Mac screen, while the iPhone did the actual filming – I could literally keep an eye on what I was doing! Eureka moment!
I’m hoping this course will help others, especially non-techie artists and craftsmen like me, to create their own online workshops and teach the world their amazing skills.
Would value some feedback!
I’ll post my views about the Course Platforms I have researched..
