What would be a popular course for me to create based on my varied and extensive skillset?
So I have 15+ years of carpentry & home building experience. I also have 20+ years of IT experience. Plus extensive experience fixing broken things I bought cheap. Currently doing freelance IT, but it's running me ragged and it has it's slow months. Lots of Digital signage, cat5/6 rough cabling & terminations. I have many certs, like Novell CNE, MCSE , Cisco. So I basically don't know where to start, and I can see myself getting discouraged if I sped a lot of time on a course nobody takes. So Here's a list, and if you see one that's not really covered or seems interesting enough to be popular it would help me decide.
Cat5 cabling & terminations
How to install wall to wall carpet & glues direct carpet
How to live cheap in states with high property taxes
How to make a living on the Workmarket Platform
How to build a freestanding spiral staircase out of Oak.
How to make your own Formica Laminate countertop
How to passthrough a gaming GPU to a KVM or VSphere virtual machine
Norwegian Stick Framing (a lost art)
How to run OSX Sierra virtual machine with Nvidia GPU passthrough on KVM
How to flip stuff from craigslist
I can certainly think of more, but this is a start. I'll maybe post again if i think of a good one.
Seems like you are spoilt for choice. Use the marketplace tools to analyse the supply and demand for your list of courses. Personally, working on my first course, I chose a topic that would be easy for me to structure just to get one completed and get used to the whole Udemy course creation process. I am about 40% there on the videos, then I will have the uploads and quizzes to do so I am really about 25% complete.
