I will be around today - ask me anything. Here is what I am working on today:
I am recording 3 new lectures all day today, and writing lecture descriptions. Also, I just finished live streaming a class on YouTube using the Restream studio. Typically I stream using OBS and today I tried something different.
Today I learned a lesson that I keep learning - always check your settings!
I streamed at 720p 60fps and set the video to 480p 30fps. The result was a laggy, blurry live stream!😲😒

You are where we all have been, and you are headed in the right direction already just by asking for help.
Here is something to get you started based on my own experience:
Step 1 - Maintain a constant PMA (Positive Mental Attitude) - remember that you are sharing your positive vibes with a world that needs them.
Step 2 - Make a plan
Step 3 – I like your idea of having a YouTube channel because it is great place to start learning about recording video, lighting, angles, and audio (sounding great is VERY important).
Learning how to make YouTube video is a great exercise in developing your technical skills and building your confidence while you develop your audience. It will help you prepare for submitting a TEST video. Once you have made the type of video that you will use in your course make sure to send it up as a TEST video for approval. Do this BEFORE recording all your course videos.
Step 4 – Make sure that you know what the minimum requirements are to having a course, like a minimum of 30 minutes of video and the like.
Step 5 – Just Do It!
I think of my courses a "living courses." In other words, my courses are never complete because I am continuously adding to them. My First course was only 30 minutes and now it is 4.5 hours!
Just by reading your question and the manner in which you wrote it, I can tell you have what it takes to make your course a reality and help lots of people.
Keep on learning, Denise!
