How Online Course Creators can Enhance Student Experience
We want to dive into is how do you add a live component to the courses or programs that you have. What kind of an impact does that have on the program itself and the success for your people?
I think that it gives you a chance perhaps to go through some things that you can't fit into regular meetings or classes. You know every single class I've ever taught, there's always something that comes up. That's a little bit outside of the curriculum that's been pre-planned. Whether it's an extra live session or even a live retreat, like we do with some of our masterminds, it gives you a chance to dive deeper into some of those things that crop up as you're going through it.
Why Add a Live Interaction to Your Digital Course?
I think as an educators ourselves, we have the educator understanding of the fact that people need to be able to talk back in order to learn. I think with so many courses these days being just DIY, you're taking in and taking in and taking in. When in reality, a vast majority of the humans on the planet need to be able to verbally process and spit it back out to someone to know that they've learned it.
You know, we say in our Spanish Lemonhass curriculum, the way you know that a child learns is when they can teach it to someone else. It's not when they can memorize it and pass a test, but when they can actually explain it to someone else. I think that as adults, we tend to forget that. We think, oh, I heard it, I learned it. No, you didn't learn it until you can explain it to someone else. That takes an interactive component.
How Can Course Creators Connect with Their Clients?
I think that the larger your reach with your courses in your programs, the more important it is for you to connect with your people as a human. Those live times, even live outside of the norm, are so valuable.
It helps to motivate and move them through I think, in a way that we can continue to serve them, continue to know what's going on. If you've only ever done DIY, you really need to try live component. If you have done the live, like there's lots of different ways to add the different live aspects in, that can enhance the program, whether it is a Q&A or a live come let's work on our homework at the same time, all on Zoom. So we've got that accountability kind of thing on top of the learning.
