In this course, you'll learn step by step how to bring your idea through design, development, manufacturing, marketing and on to market.
You’ll learn this by people who have actually done this and not by theoreticians.
We'll cover advanced strategies and resources like:
Whether your goal is to creating your product along with your start-up company or simply sell your idea to potential investors, this is the course for you...

So many people have an invention in their head - but no idea what to do with their new innovation. Let's start from scratch.
Okay, you've got an invention or innovation - how do you know if it's any good or not? Here Stephen walks us through some simple steps to get honest evaluation.
It may seem obvious, but putting your invention or innovation down in a sketch is an important and critical step. This step doesn't need to be technical and complicated however.
When it comes to inventions and innovations, there are a pile of resources you need that are far beyond just finances. Here Stephen walks us through some excellent resources that can help boost your idea into a reality.
Adding on to developing your invention or innovation, Stephen explains how every skill needed for your idea can be shopped out.
An excellent website that will help you in your process, Stephen explains Quirky and why it can help with your invention or innovation.
Bootstrapping your invention or innovation has radically changed in recent years with various on line resources. Stephen walks us through this process.
When developing an invention or innovation, every step of the process can be tested. In this lecture, Stephen walks you through why this is critical and how you can do it.
Free market analysis and fundraising? How could you ask for more?
When it comes to prototyping an invention or innovation, 3D printing has literally changed the landscape. Stephen explains why.
In this lecture, Stephen shows the importance of having a plan and sticking to it, yet also have a plan that can change when wisdom directs.
When it comes to invention and innovation, speed is everything. Here Stephen explains why.
Every inventor or innovator is going to experience "the dip." Just what is that and how can you prepare for it?
In this second lecture on ideas, Ian explains why ideas have no value.
In this lecture, Ian calls upon his years in Research and Development of inventions and innovations - a very misunderstood process to many inventors. In this lecture you'll come to understand what exactly the process is and why it is so critical.
In this day and age, it's probably safe to say that the vast majority of inventions and innovations involve electronics of some kind. Here Ian walks you through the options you have at your disposal for the electronics in your product.
It seems the first thing an inventor does is try to sell their invention. Here Stephen explains the many reasons why you shouldn't do that.
Obviously for an idea or invention to have value, there has to be a market for the invention. Here Stephen walks you through this critical evaluation.
Patent searches have a lot more intrinsic value than just evaluating whether or not your invention is original and can be protected by patent. Stephen explains how you can go through this process yourself and the advantages of doing so.
Inventions and innovations are, by their very nature, a new concept that people may or may not "get." Tied in with your marketing research, test marketing can give you answers to key questions about the value of your invention.

I've been an instructor in science and technology for 30 years. I got my start teaching at a science camp when I was 16. I also taught technology at the high school level for 10 years. I am a graduate of robotics engineering from Canadore College, North Bay, Ontario, and conducted research and development for multiple innovations over the years, including work with an Eastern Ontario company producing cool suits and hot suits for harsh environments. Our suits were used on board the space shuttle while it was in operation.
My interests have gone far beyond robotics, having written multiple scientific papers, published in peer reviewed journals and a book, wrote a book on video production, and am currently a railroader, working for Canadian National Railroad in Ontario. I produced a video series on how to read Canadian railroad signals which is now being used in conductor courses to instruct the students on how to read the signals. I traveled on the road for ten years with a traveling museum I collected and constructed, speaking on the creation/evolution debate and have produced and hosted a television show on the topic for five years now.
