Description

Hi there!

Have you ever thought about creating and filming your own course, but didn't really know how? Does the experience of other instructors tell you that you might need tons of expensive equipment and software?

It really is quite simple. You just have to get started and you really don't need much.

I personally have filmed all of my courses using just my smartphone!

In this tutorial I will teach you step by step how to use only a smartphone/tablet to film your entire course including:

  1. Selecting the right course idea
  2. Structuring the course
  3. Things you need to film (simple household items)
  4. The filming and editing procedure
  5. Course descriptions etc.
  6. Coupon marketing
  7. Paid marketing

In a nutshell, everything you need to start creating your own Udemy course!


Best,

Kaiwen Fan

German Engineering Student with a Passion for Music

My name is Kaiwen, and I am currently studying Engineering at RWTH Aachen University in Germany and have been teaching private piano lessons for 2 years.

Music among technology and automotive design, has always been a huge part of my life, ever since I started learning to play the piano at a very young age. Over the years I have developed a deep passion for this instrument and at some point decided to experiment with popular music.

I have been playing the piano for almost 17 years alltogether and arranging my own cover songs for almost 10 years now.

Having started out learning classical music I soon discovered that playing popular music can be more fun and is much quicker to learn by ear rather than using sheet music.
