Welcome to the learning journey for Amazon Mobile Training: How to create and publish a mobile training course in the world’s biggest marketplace The course is organized in a few main sections to bring understanding to the Amazon experience and how it can be maximized for training, leveraging adult learning strategies for effective training development, understanding publishing requirements for ebooks, audiobooks, and videos to Amazon, and creating a training platform for tracking success.
This course begins with the Amazon experience with answers to why sell training courses on Amazon, how amazon works, and insight into search strategies, nailing the title for your works, and the time value of training development and speed to market. We’ll also uncover the model of how creating an ebook will serve as a script for the audiobook and video productions.
Next we’ll embark on publishing ebooks on Amazon with how to write and format your book, how to target your book to customers, how develop a cover design, how to upload your book to Amazon, and how to price and publish your book. You will also discover how to schedule and run free promotions for your book. The book will then serve as a script for audiobook and video productions. Resources for production will be shared.
After the script is written and published as an ebook, the material can be transformed into an audiobook for learning on the go. Amazon has an audiobook publishing platform called ACX. The web address is acx.com. In the top left of the site is the login or sign up buttons. Clicking either one will take you to a login screen to enter your Amazon username and password.
The power of video is another exciting training platform that can be solved with Amazon. After the script is written and published as an ebook and the audio is recorded, the audio files can be used for the videos, or you can produce the videos and use the audio for the audiobook. The video publishing arm of Amazon is called Video Direct.
Before embarking on how to publish media assets on Amazon, we’ll build a foundation of leveraging adult learning strategies for effective training development and production. This will include understanding the learning curve, identifying ways to develop progressive learning content, supporting the learner at the center of the training universe, and creating visual storytelling by design.
Publishing your training is an exciting step which leads to managing the learning content and building an ongoing training platform. An outcome for participating in this course is the opportunity to have your mobile training content listed in a growing gallery of Amazon Mobile Training.
First, thank you for spending time with this production. I hope that you have learned from the experience and I want to help reward your applied use of the learning. In this section, I'll share two things to support your success.
Hi I'm John. Helping people learn challenging things quickly is what I thrive on. People want to improve performance, advance in careers, and enrich skills through a practical approach to applied learning. I’ve been a student of developing creative and rewarding ways to learn through 20 years of media experience as an Emmy award winning producer and innovative leader for creative professionals working with Disney, Fox, NBC, CBS, and ABC. I’ve discovered the value of student focused approaches by teaching at 7 colleges simultaneously at one point while developing effective training and development for live and online instruction. During the recent 10 years I also earned advanced degrees in adult learning to soak up an enthusiasm for learning while managing a busy schedule.
The Udemy environment allows you and me to interact through an engaging interface that evolves and benefits from each student experience in a constructive way. Together, we’ll contribute to discussion threads that grow over time. Work is invited to be shared and reviewed for constructive critiques and feedback.
I have a passion for creating engaging instruction that is easy to learn, and which generates powerful outcomes. I'm confident that anything can be learned with a supportive instructor coach, a well-designed curriculum, and an enthusiasm for learning.
My role as instructor is also to be continually engaged in learning from each class and each student so that the subject matter evolves and improves. Life is learning and I enjoy life. Let's learn together.
