We’ve illustrated some steps with screenshots of existing courses so you can see what the finished product looks like.
Planning an outline to your course is the foundation to your project. Getting this right will support all other tasks on your course creation journey.
Think about your chosen topic. What courses are already available in this field? How can yours offer something better, more useful or more relevant? Do you know your target audience and their needs and preferences well? Decide on the course goals. Your course must include definable goals for your students. What specific skills and achievements will they have on completion? When you focus on tangible goals it helps in composing the course content needed to reach these.
Having identified course goals, now think about the best method you can use to teach the knowledge and skills needed. Break down goals into incremental stages and plan each section with these in mind. Choosing a distinct format helps students to feel confident and helps you to be organised and structured.
Put yourself in the students’ shoes and consider what teaching style would best suit your topic. Should the tone of voice be friendly or formal? Think about the level of technical language, humour, staying on point, including helpful tips etc.
It is generally a big advantage to add practical activities to your content so students can put their learning into practice. Exercises, questions and quizzes encourage interactive thinking and bring new ideas to life. Once you’ve planned your outline, you’re ready to decide on your content.
This is where you can shine! Show your expertise in your chosen area with well thought out, relevant and informative content. Is everything you’re including of definite benefit to the students in your target audience? Is it interesting and informative? Would it make them want to take another course authored by you?
When you’ve completed your content and you’re happy with all aspects, you’re ready for publishing. This is where Clickary Solutions make things easy for you.
We’ve set up everything you need to get your course published and in front of hundreds of thousands of students, completely hassle free. All you need to do is make sure your course content is presented in the format which we will clearly outline and we’ll do the rest. This means you can free yourself from all the ins and out of getting published, getting exposure and getting known and concentrate on producing excellent work that stands out.
If you’ve completed all your course content, structured it into modules, added practical elements and assessments, WELL DONE!! This is a wonderful achievement and you’re well on your way to being a published and earning author.
Before you submit your work to our team for review, take time to step back from the course and view it objectively in its entirety. Read it through from a user’s point of view and be constructively critical in your assessment of how it comes across. Is there more you’d like to add? Anything you’d like to take out? Does it fulfill the learning goals you set in your outline?
Complete any final touches that are needed.
When you’re happy it meets all your requirements, submit the full course to us for our internal review. We’ll check that it fits our course templates, and that the content has all elements needed to meet Clickary Solutions course criteria.
