How to Create an Online Course to Sell
There are multiple different ways to build and host your online course. The number one thing that I want you to remember is there is no wrong way to host your course creation. It's a creation, so be creative. There is no right or wrong way to do this. It‘s what works for you and what works for your people.
Your online course could be as simple as hosting live training. These can be hosted via Facebook Lives, Zoom, or some other sort of live streaming platform like YouTube streaming live. On the other hand, you may want to provide recordings. Maybe you want to prerecord videos for courses.
How do I choose a course creation platform? Online course technology can be overwhelming. However just choose something that's going to be easy for you and easy for your people. How easy is it to deliver the content? Is it easy for you to organize the content? Is it easy for you to upload things, and get them to your people? These are the questions to consider.
What do I Need for Online Course Technology?
Next comes the presentation. You need to find a course creation platform that will make a pretty presentation. None of us like to log in and use something ugly that looks like it's from the dark ages. So, you need to look at how your information is presented on whatever course platform you choose to use. So that you can say, well my people enjoy using this because of x, y, and z. Again, if it's not enjoyable, people are less likely to do it.
The presentation needs to look nice. So, does it look clean? Does it look organized? Also, does it look easy for them? Does it make it feel like it's easy to access the material and get the wins?
That's super, super important and so whatever program you're using or whatever platform or software you choose how does it look for the users. Make sure that the presentation is what you expect and what your people will be expecting.
How do you plan a course online?
Then the number three top tip for choosing a course creation technology platform is your back end system. The back end means everything that has to do with setting up the course. We talked about that and ease, but beyond that, it's connecting it. For instance, does it have an email system included? Do you need to connect it to your email?
Right well, how does the back end work? And does it work the way that you want it to? Again, going back to how easy is it for you to use? Does it take a rocket scientist to set it up and connect everything? Then unless you have a rocket scientist on your staff, or on your team already, you probably want to find something that's simpler. Now somebody who's got a huge team and have got people who are super techie, like sure go ahead let them figure it out if it works better for you right?
