I use the following flow/process to kick-start & run any new course: 1.Research 2.Insights 3.Folders 4.PowerPoint 5.Video 6.Marketing 7.Collaboration 8.Continued Course Updation 9.Market Insights Research: I do the homework first by looking at articles, blogs and insights from a variety of sources. I then approach SME's who presently are working on the topic and seek their inputs and insights. My Insights: I then note down my own experiences, scenarios, real-life impressions etc Folders: I create one folder where I save all of the materials, PDF documents, YouTube links, word docs etc PowerPoint: Once i have good material, i then start off with the first few slides. I tend to complete the design of each slide completely with images, graphics etc, and parallelly prepare my script for each of the slides. Video: Once i have few slides ready along with script I tend to start recording, i record post lunch for couple of hours. I also prepare the Udemy course landing page, target students writeup, course messages etc. As and when the videos are done i upload them on curriculum, hence in the evening i have few sections up on Udemy Marketing: I plan in such a way that once i have 5 sections up and course approval, i start sharing the discount/free coupons within my network for initial feedback. I use FaceBook groups extensively and also upload the promo videos on YouTube, Reddit & LinkedIn. Collaboration: On my LinkedIn i recommend top udemy instructors to my network & friends, this also helps in collaboration & networking with the best of Udemy instructors. Continued Course Updation: I look at feedback: good/bad/ugly with an open mind and decide to change/amend course topics. Most of the times the feedback is genuine and sometimes too direct, but i use my discretion in terms of which one's to take seriously and which one's to ignore. Market Insights: Since my area is Human Capital Management which keeps the HR folks on their toes with lot of updates/new theories etc - I keep an eye on international magazines, websites, leader talks and recommend resources to my participants to keep them abreast of latest research/happenings.
