Description

This will make your course stand out.

This is a step-by-step process for designing professional course slide presentations - For instructors.

Please Note: This is not a tutorial on how to use Powerpoint or other presentation software.

My name is Ian Stables. I currently have seventeen courses, including this one. I currently teach more than twenty one thousand unique students.

My first Udemy course did not include slides. After a few students said they'd prefer a slide presentation, I started to learn everything I could about slide presentation and design.

I'm a systems man. After some time, I eventually developed a process to develop slide presentations for courses. The result is a quality professional slide presentation that students truly learn from. One that keeps them focused on what you're teaching.

In many courses, there are lots of presentations that could be massively improved. You can make your course stand out. All you need to do is create a professional one.

You'll be able to create professional looking slide presentations. The result will be a quality course that students will love and tell others about.

In this course, I take you through these nine steps:

Step one makes everything else so much easier.

Step two is an absolute must.

Step three is knowing what to show. You'll instantly know what to include in your presentation.

Step four is about using professional pictures. Your course will look amateurish is you don't use the right picture.

Step five is quickly finding the pictures. I'll show you how I quickly find pictures you can use.

Step six is how to insert pictures so they look great.

Step seven is how to make text stand out. Discover the professional way to display text. You'll also know what words you should include. (Many instructors get this wrong.)

Step eight is the professional way to animate. There's a right and a wrong way.

Step nine is great looking title slides. Title slides can really make a difference to your course.

You'll have a repeatable process to create a professional slide presentation. Every time.

Enroll now and let me make your course stand out.

  • Instructors who use slides in their courses
