Learn How to Create A Udemy Course Extremely Fast! In 3 Hours Time I Show You How I Create All My Course Content From Scratch, & Still Meet Udemy's Quality Standards, So I Can Move Straight Into Editing & Upload
I started by observing all of Udemy's minimum expectations, then designed a short course around those expectations. The result is a high-quality course from the ground up!
One day on my day off from work, I set myself up to the challenge of creating a complete Udemy course that meets all of Udemy's quality standards in only 3 hours time. My vision was for the sort of student, be it a Udemy newcomer or a merely busy person that's eager to dive into teaching online. Who maybe doesn't have much time to dedicate a month let alone a week's worth of attention to developing a full course. In this course I show that sort of student how to take-off and get right into course creation for the Udemy platform.
It was quite a challenge limiting myself to the minimum amount of lectures and content, but needless to say, it was a success! It even changed my perspective on long courses. I discovered that there's a way to condense material and still be entirely effective with the outcome. I no longer feel like I need to jam tons of material within one course. Sometimes the topic at hand lends itself to a more concentrated time frame. Such is my revelation with this course I have for you.
You too can create a course that's concise, yet effective. This course was designed for the person that needs a jumpstart to teaching online. That needs a quick guided tour of Udemy's most emphasized standards. Who wants to learn how to create content and move quickly into editing and polishing before upload to Udemy.
So that we can jump right into creating a Udemy Course, I provide a Guided Tour of the "Bare Bones" requirements Udemy has in place for all courses created on their platform.
This quiz will test your Udemy knowledge, so you can see if you're absolutely clear on standards.
You'll learn how I use Apple Notes to create an instant overview of my course. This will help you organize your thoughts, lay out your course in a logically sequential manner, and give you a reference to go back to at any point in time during course development. This is the roadmap.
Flesh out the content for your course using Keynote. This video covers all the Keynote basics. From Document Setup, Text Formatting, Text Animation, How to Animate Object-Like Vector Illustrations, How to control Animation flow using the Build Order panel, How to Animate Slide Transitions, How To Use Pre-installed Keynote Templates, & more.
In this video we go through a mock presentation using the lecture we made in Keynote, and record both of our slides with Screenflow. If it's your first time being an instructor, this will get you acclimated to the behind-the-scenes that goes into making a Udemy course.
Learn how to edit your video content quickly using ScreenFlow's native video editing tools. We'll cover canvas size manipulation, cutting clips, joining clips, and exporting our content using selected range controls.
There's one little fact about me that inspires everything I do: I'm curious. REALLY curious. From the time I wake up to the time I go to sleep, I'm thinking about dozens of little questions pricking at my mind to answer. Hundreds of insatiable intrigues I have in my mind to explore. This curiosity drives me to figure out things. Figure out the WHY behind things. To figure out the HOW. My mind is always growing towards these little discoveries, like vines on a wall always stretching further out and up for the sun.
I'm curious, because I want to learn how to create things. Creating things for people makes me feel most alive. There's nothing better than that flooding rush of excitement because what I made really meant something to someone. When I play back a song I wrote, work on a video production, connect with a huge audience, review a new up and coming product, give people the inside scoop on a theory, a method, a set of insights to change someone's life - these are the sort of things I live for.
I'm driven by curiosity, creativity, and truth.
It's with this passion that I hope to imbue each and every class I establish on this website. I hope you can feel my enthusiasm for discovery when you enroll in my courses. I want know what YOU think. I want to help you with the things I know best.
It means everything to me.
