An Inspiring Course that De-Mystifies Online Course Creation

This is not the average 'how to create a Udemy course' course. As Michael clearly states on the landing page, this course is not so much about how to create the elements of a course. Instead, it is an actual example of how an instructor puts all of the elements together to produce a finished course. Happily, I did learn some tips and tricks relating to audio and video production but the greatest take-away for me came in actually seeing a real course come together. By taking away all of the intimidating behind-the-scenes mystery, Michael helped me see just how doable online course creation can be. I highly recommend this course for anyone who needs a little inspiration to finally take the challenge and create a course.


Very good. A whole course created in 8 hours or so

This would be a great course for anyone that is new to Udemy and want to get a quick snapshot of how to create a course from start to finish. It has a lot of meat for being put together so fast. I did learn of some new resources and techniques that I can use.


You will also learn about:

  • How you can create a course quickly
  • How to structure your course
  • How to Improve your audio on presentations using Audacity
  • Where to get free graphics and images to use in your course creation process
  • How to use green screen to improve your course videos.
  • The correct way of shooting a talking head video.

This is a warts and all look at the course creation process.

If, at the end of this, you come away thinking you are now more motivated to get your courses out there and published quickly and efficiently , then I have succeeded.

Ultimately, you will need both quality and to take action to be a success on Udemy. This course tells you all you need to know to get your course done. Every second you delay is money lost to you.

In fact, Im loving Udemy so much, this is my fourth course created in little over a month.

Join over 3000 successful students now taking my courses and benefiting from the lessons they've learned.

Enrol now and I'll show you how to get your course on Udemy quickly and with the minimum of fuss and start to your earn your share of the cash. As I said before, don't delay as ever second is costing you money that could be in your pocket.

See you in the course.
