Introductory to Intermediate Python Courses

Before I get started on making videos, etc.  I just wanted to ask for any advice on how best to create my course.  Of course, I want to make this as professional as I can, and also attract student.  

Best, John Griner

John, I don't think you have correctly selected the category and sub-category. Are you sure you want to be in the "Teaching and Academics" category?????

Lawrence, hmm, I thought that was the most logical place.

 

Can we suggest a better category?

Search competitive courses and see what catagory they are in.

Who is going to be searching a topic that will lead them to your course? Academicians?

 

I don't know your subject but my guess is that if you put it in this category it will be buried and lost. It is like a supermarket where you are selling candy and you put it in the dog food section. It won't sell. Look at the list of categories and decide which best fits your course.

Lawrence,

    Ok.  Different category, maybe lower price? As far as you I am trying to reach, I'm not quite sure.  For the most part, just anyone the wants to learn Python, at more of a beginners level; that's how I designed the course.  So, yes, probably academics, but students, high school and university students that either are in class and would like ancillary help via video, etc., or highschool students who need help because their teacher is not the best, continue education adults, anyone that wants to learn Python for any reason, and needs someone where to start.  Thus, in short for Academics at the beginner to intermediate level.  I can record more advanced lectures if need be.  Ok, I will go back and look at the categories.  Thanks.  Also, I set the price at $49.99/hr.  Maybe I should set it a bit lower?

John, there is no pricing per/hour. You have a price for the course in its entirety. Again, look at your competition, there is a lot of it. Look at the courses that sell the best. https://www.udemy.com/courses/search/?src=ukw&q=Python

Lawrence,

     I just looked at one of the courses, and the price is set at $15.99.  This particular course far exceeds, in content what I have done.  Thus, I should probably ad more content, i.e. more videos, downloadable material, 70 coding exercises, a test, etc. 

    Thus, it will take some time if this is this case. 

Thanks again, for your help, John

My guess is that that price is the current sale price. Not the list price.

Lawrence,

    Can I ask if my course is being reviewed?

John

@MuhammadUma309 I am very certain that this self-promotion, advertisement, is in violation of the community standards.
