- Plan Your Course
Planning for course content is important before you start recording. This way you will have the right topic for what you will be teaching and the audience you are creating your course for.
Select a course topic: You can teach anything on our platform, except for what is on our list of prohibited topics. You can use the Marketplace Insights tool which helps you to improve the quality of your topic at learner demand. It can also help you search for topics that are needed in your course area and that your target learners are looking for.
Define your target audience: It is important to identify the specific audience you want to present your course to. This will help you focus the course content so that it is relevant to the students and to be able to achieve their goals at the end of the course.
Set Learning and Course Titles Setting objectives for your training course. This is as important as the points mentioned earlier, because it helps in creating an organized and relevant online learning experience for your learners.
Create Your Own Scenario: learners often prefer enthusiastic and fun teachers who encourage their participation. So you should create and practice your own script to stay prepared and energized for the duration of the course.
