In this blog, we have created a step-by-step guide for you on how you can create your online course content.
The most important thing about your online course is its content!
It is not the editing part nor it is about how you look in your course videos. The only thing which is responsible for bringing a positive shift in your learners’ life is the content of your online course.
Hence, make sure that you create the best content for your online course.
We understand that creating life-changing content is very difficult and many creators get stuck at this point. They feel overwhelmed with too much information that they collect from multiple sources. Consequently, they feel anxious and depressed.
Well, if you are a creator who’s going through the same pain, we don’t want you to feel that way. So, to help you in creating your online course content, we have done a lot of research.
Hence, we have created a step-by-step guide for you on how you can create your online course content.
So, without further ado, let’s forge ahead!
Create online course content in 5 steps
Creating online course content requires you to do a lot of research. No matter how much you know about a particular topic, you have to collect data and information from everywhere possible. This is one of the most important things that you need to do to make your course stand out.
How to know what you can include in your online course content?
- Search about your online course topic on Google, read blogs that are written around your niche
- Watch YouTube videos of creators who are in a similar niche
- Listen to podcasts of your fellow creators and listen to their views regarding course creation and online course content
- Go through the websites of your rivals. See their course outline and course description
- You can even purchase your rivals’ courses to see the type of content that they have used in their online course
No matter how long it takes, do your research thoroughly. Because once you create the online course, it will become difficult for you to edit it again and again. Hence spend the required amount of time doing research.
Pull all the pieces together
In this step, you need to jot down everything that you have collected through your research. However, while researching you must have written it somewhere whether in your notebook or in your laptop,
But, now, jot it down in your notebook or in a Google doc (whatever you like). Arrange all the pieces all together in a very organized way. You need to write down all the information that you have gathered from all the sources. In this way, you won’t miss out on any important information while creating your online course content.
Remove unnecessary information and create your course outline
Now that you have piled all the pieces together, there must be a lot of information that you won’t find important. You will not want to include it in your online course content.
Hence, when you reach this point, you need to do a lot of cleaning.
Go through the document that you created in the last step. Read it thoroughly. Then create a new document and add all the pieces of your research that you want to include in your course content. Now, you have everything ready that you want to add to your online course content.
Assemble all the information altogether under proper headings and subheadings. You can take inspiration from your rival’s online course or course description (whatever you have). After doing this, read the document again. If you think you need to edit something then do it, if not then give a pat on the back because you have created your online course outline.
Choose an online course hosting platform
Before choosing the online course platform, decide the type of content you want to add to your course.
- Do you want to conduct live tests and live classes?
- Do you want to create an audio course or a video course?
- Do you want to give course completion certificates to your learners?
- Do you want to give assignments and projects to your learners?
- Do you want to launch your institute’s mobile app?
Along with this, also figure out the payment gateway that most of your learners will use.
Once you get the answers to these questions, you can check out all the available online course hosting platforms in the market. Do your research. Check out all of them and thoroughly go through their features and pricing. See if they provide the features that you want or not.
On that basis, make a list of alternatives that provide the features that you want. Then choose the one according to your requirements and budget.
