Hi obviously you can look through the minimum requirements list for guidance but two things that will make a difference in getting approval for your course is to have good clear audio and 1080p video. The audio in the beginning caused me to have a lot of problems getting my course approved so here are my simple tips. If you are on a tight budget like most who start are your video can be recorded on a Iphone or smart phone they do not have to be the latest models with a camera from 5mp up then for audio I would suggest getting a lav mic to connect to the phone because if you are recording indoors your recording will sound like you are in a tunnel because you are to far from the mic. Also webcams and laptop cams might record good video but the audio will not be good. make sure your lighting is good from behind the camera if its daylight place your camera in front of the window facing you if its night time you are going to have to invest in some light source a cheap way would be to get a spot light and point it away from you at a wall so the bright light bounces and spreads back more evenly and soft for video recording. But there are lots of YouTube videos to help you with that. If you are able to spend a little bit I would suggest getting a audio recording device I use a zoom h1 then plug a lav mic into this and record your audio separate from your video you can then clean up the audio in a free to download audio editing program called Audacity, again there is lots of videos on YouTube that will show you how to get the best results. The audio will then have to be synced with your video in a video editing program I use Sony Vegas 11 its not the most up to date video editing program but again it can be purchased very reasonably some where like Ebay . If you knew this all ready thats okay it may help someone else starting up and if not and you think this is really difficult it is a learning curve but once you have done it a few times because you use the same settings every time you record it becomes easy. Another thing I came across when recording to damp down hollow or echo sound from the room you record in hang some heavy blankets on the wall. Good luck on your teaching Journey

Remember that everything you video can be edited its not live, I am in most of my video content and it does not always go according to plan I have tried teleprompters but I would have had to practice a lot to make it seem natural then I used big notes behind the camera on the wall as reminders but I still felt it was not natural for me For me I found the best way was to plan a short length of video and have some notes to look over before switching on the camera and audio recorder The notes help to prime my thinking on what I am about to record so that as I teach it seems more natural. The one thing I have learned is you will get better because as you watch it back you will begin to learn what looks and sounds good it does not mater if its bad at first because we all make mistakes. The best advice I can give is just keep on doing it.
