Description

Do you feel you have a handle on the basics of creating a Udemy course (like defining your course goal and creating an outline)? Are you looking for more advanced training to help really take your course to the next level? If you answered "yes" to those questions, this course is for you.

In this official, Udemy-produced course you will learn everything you need to know about adding in practice activities throughout your course. As a bonus, you'll also learn about your specific course style so you can target the practice activities directly to what you are planning on teaching.  

Before we get into what this course covers, let’s start with a disclaimer. This course is going to be tough! We’re covering some advanced concepts here that many of you might not have been exposed to before. It’s going to seem confusing at places. But that’s OK! These are hard concepts that we’ll work through together. By the end of this course you’ll understand the benefits of including practice in your course, and will know exactly how to embed practice throughout your own

Stick with the course and dive into these advanced materials and you’ll come out a much stronger Udemy instructor by the end.

We'll go over all of the topics that go into adding in practice activities to your course:

  1. Finding your course style
  2. Understanding activating questions, case studies, projects, and tutorial tours
  3. Using the Udemy platform to embed practice throughout your course

In addition, you'll have a ton of opportunities to get your hands dirty with working on activities throughout the course.

This course is part of the "Teaching" track of Udemy's Official Instructor Education Program. 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 this course you'll have learned how to actively engage your students as they work through your material. You'll also have completed an intermediate Udemy Insights course, which will help elevate your teaching technique to focus on truly engaging your student base.
