Course Description

This course is not sponsored by or affiliated with Udemy, Inc.

As a new or current instructor at Udemy, creating a course can be very challenging. The course will provide the instructor the necessary instruction to use the ISD Instructional Model to organize and manage the courseware development. If you need a special tool to assist you to design your course, then this course manager database is an important part of your courseware development process. This course has 1.5 hours of lectures and 12 lectures.

I have created a course that includes a relational database (Course Manager) that will accelerate your courseware design. The course will includes the relational database "Course Manager" that is used the manage the course design and development.

In addition to being more productive developing your course, I am using the ISD Instructional Systems Design model for the database development. The ISD model has a proven history where the course development model is used to manage the many elements of the development process, and to improve the productivity of the course development.

The ISD model has been updated for online course development with many new features.

This course will improve the quality of your instruction by providing a framework that includes; course analysis, a course outline screen, course objectives screen, course design screen, media used, and testing and evaluation screens. Each one of these steps in the development process are enhanced through the usage of the Course Manager database. The course manager may be used for each individual course being developed. This process creates a knowledge base for future course design. With each course you develop, you will add to your skill as a courseware developer.

The database will also include a lesson guide that can be used for scripting your course and narrating from that screen into a video presentations. Some bonus features are; a website library for collecting course related website information, and a sales and promotion screen to track both promotions and coupons to include summaries for sales.

To add to the development process you can use this course authors 40 years of course design to ask questions and improve your overall knowledge for course development.

Instructor Biography

Vaughn Clement, Informations Systems Specialist

Received a bachelor of science degree in business and accounting in 1992 from the University of New Mexico.

  • I retired from the US Navy in 1981, and relevant experience of interest to Udemy is that I was an instructor for about 10 years teaching technical courses. I attended what would be a Masters level course on instructional systems development early in my career in the Navy.
  • In 1982 I took a position with the company named ESI, that later became a giant company called ISC international signal and control. Before I left the Navy I assisted in writing CBT courses for the Marine Corps through a civilian company. That led to this employment with ESI. My position in this company was the logistics and field support manager. I was responsible for all the technical training, manuals, and marketing literature that went out to our customers. Shortly after joining this company I used my experience in CBT courseware to start up a new department, named ISC Educational Systems. Our first contract was a million-dollar course for all high school math from basic numbers to trigonometry calculus and geometry. There were many other courses of technical nature that followed. In 1990 ISC was taken over in a hostile takeover. The company that took over ISC dissolved the company's in the corporate Circle.
  • Director of operations, responsible for software design, computer equipment integration, and production methods for a startup company doing short run color printing.
  • Sales and marketing manager, for 15 store retail computer business. Responsible for managing a store where my personal sales exceeded 365,000 each year for five years.
  • Account's receivable manager 2001 to 2006 for a civil engineering company in Sedona Arizona. Responsible for training project managers, managing accounts receivables, contracts, bid and proposal development, developed computer database management programs that move the company from a $1 million a year company, to accompany 15 1/2 million in five years.
  • In 2007 started my own business On Target Solutions LLC. My position as a part-time business owner was to develop database management systems. I use my experience to design and develop database management systems for business, and productivity solutions. I became an Apple developer for iOS in 2007, in my first four years I grossed $150,000 where I sold 4500 applications worldwide. As of 2015, I'm approaching 5000 applications sold, and I moved more toward doing custom software solutions for worldwide clients. This amounts to about 600 applications sold that are not included in the hundred and 50,000 sales for iTunes.
  • Almost by accident I learned about Udemy and its online instruction courseware. I had purchased a number of courses prior to deciding to throw my hat in the ring. My goal to be an instructor with Udemy was to provide training courses based on my work history. My first consideration was to create a course for FileMaker Pro advanced that is a database I been using for 18 years.
