There are 3 main things you need when creating an online course:
You are innately creative. We all are. It’s not by chance that we have the power to use our imagination and create things out of thin air. Creativity is a major component of creating an online course. After all… it’s CREATING a program.
Then, you need the strategy to craft the content. You can find the technical aspects online by simply searching on google: the video, the audio, the platform.
- How do you structure the content?
- What is meant to be in the course and what not?
- What piece of information is essential?
- How do you determine the order of the steps involved in your course?
- How do you break down the content into lessons?
- What’s the best structure for those lessons so the course is easy to follow and deliver?
- What action steps should you include in the course?
You’ll find the answer to these questions and a simple way to structure your program, in this short course.
Then, you also need to get things done – to make sure you implement. It comes down to playing to your strengths. If you’re motivated by doing things for others, use that as your motivating fuel. If you’re motivated by an upcoming deadline, use that.
There are 2 elements that we can use to become more motivated and get things done (maybe faster): desire and demand.
Desire is internal (your desire, drive to see this materialized), while demand is external (delivering the course, usually live, to those who have expressed interest).
Sometimes, course creation goes deeper than that. But sometimes, it helps to keep things simple. We all interpret things differently and it’s the case with your course too. People will take what they need from your course.
Find the missing piece in your industry. In this free workshop, I explain exactly how to do that so as to position your course as a unique program that is filled with fresh content.
