Description

Do you want to know which pieces make up a Udemy course? Are you excited about the next steps of course creation journey, but would like more structure in the process? Are you looking for excellent tools and examples to help you along? Then you're in the right place.

In this official Udemy-produced course you will work on a project - YOUR course outline! We'll help you create a sophisticated outline that will serve as the basis for the rest of your course creation journey. You'll walk through this important step alongside a fellow Udemy instructor, who will be present throughout this course, and will share his story about working with a Udemy course creation expert. 

In this course you will: 

  1. Find a good structure for your course
  2. Create your course outline
  3. Get organized so the rest of your course creation journey goes smoothly

In each of our official courses we strive to deliver information-packed lectures that quickly give you the information you need to make your course creation process easy and your final product amazing. We include lots of examples, as well as practice activities to make sure you're practicing your new skills. 

By the end of the course, you'll have completed your course outline. We know from data and experience, that instructors who start out with a solid course outline are more likely to complete their course and have a higher quality course.
