Hi I'm Richard Hart
I have a passion, well … maybe a bit of an obsession when it comes to effective learning and teaching.
I've spent the last decade researching and engaging with learning from the perspective of a teacher, a student, an entrepreneur and a game/interactive developer. These experiences have given me a unique and powerful understanding how people learn and will continue to learn in the future.
I'm also a veteran instructor at the British Columbia Institute of Technology in Vancouver, where I currently teach advanced technology courses.
When I"m not creating and teaching new courses on Udemy, I help show organizations both large and small how to effectively teach and learn by leveraging the latest research in technology and psychology.
I assist in the creation of effective online courses, training videos and tutorials and also help design and develop educationally focused interactive content and games for mobile devices.

Richard does an excellent job presenting the material and helping someone new to this concept and navigate through the various steps to creating campaigns and keeping them up-to-date. Well worth the time and effort, even for someone with this experience.
I find the content in this course very invaluable.
We could have used a bit more visual representation of the ideas outlined in this presentation. If I just wanted to listen to an article written on screen, I would have started the Text-to-speech engine on my computer and visited a blog for freelance tips.
While not telling you exactly how to be a freelancer, the course goes over some basic, and common sense things to consider if one wants to move into the freelancer world. He does sell his business at the end of every lecture, which is fine, and if you goto his site and sign up for the newsletter, you will get access to the 30+ free videos he mentions which are worth it.
I enjoyed the course very much, I have been doing freelancing on website projects for several years. This course covered many areas that I already had incorporated into my daily life and reinforced other areas I may have skipped. I think this a valuable asset if you are coding apps or creating websites. I totally agree that Freelance boards are the death to Freelancers, you'll always find someone will promise to do a project cheaper and faster. I have picked up many a project where someone started a project and I had to finish it, because the freelancer stopped answering emails and phone calls when things weren't as easy as they thought or something else came up.
