Bonus Lecture: Courses You Should Check Out (Free & Discounted)
I was looking for a course on how to create your own lessons. This course started with concepts of online teaching, ingredients to make it a success. The quality of audio and vedio is awesome and we want to develop something like this. The delivery of the instructor is absolutely clear. I am in midst of Adobe Premier Pro lessons and it is learnt this course not only covers the conceptual part as stated above but the operational portion also which the instructor is dealing now. I have only completed about 25% of the course and would come back and update this review.
Great tech details, but especially love the writing details such as naming a course...so important! I tried to check off 5 stars, had a glitch
So far the course has been really good although I haven't seen much of it yet but Phill is a great teacher and motivates us with his amazing skills and techniques. Pretty exciting!
This is a great course for me because the instructor explains everything in an easy to understand and detailed manner.
This is a great course that Phil shares all this experience and techniques about teaching online. Really love this course.
Good course. It gave me confidence to author my own course. Now my course is up on Udemy :). Thank you.
Phil has exceeded my expectations of what I thought that I will get in this course....above and beyond ...above and beyond ...thnx Phil
From Section 13 nothing is happening when I click on "Play". I tested with other Udemy courses and all seems fine.
The instructor is very long winded and dry. You can tell he is new at this. In many of the videos he looks as if he is going to fall asleep. There are way to many videos in this course that one has to go through just to get to the meat of the course - which I hope is coming soon, how to actually create a course.
Have just started the course but i already feel am on track of achieving my desired goal for enrolling to this course. Its a nice one for content creators
I have started building a cancer survivors website. I wanted to do online courses for nutrition. This has inspired me to start with a video "How to Grow 5 Cancer Fighting Foods in Your Own Organic Garden". I love gardening and think this would be a fun way to start mastering this skill.
This is the first course of Phil's I have picked up, it actually came recommended from another instructor. I am just over two-thirds of the way through this and already have a very clear picture of how to create, edit and market an online course. I really enjoy his teaching style. Being relaxed, informal, honest and open, it promotes the feeling that he is knowledgeable and genuine. If I can create something half as good as his content, I'd be more than happy! I would highly recommend this instructor and this course. Although it does appear there may be an updated version in his library, but there have been several updates, added lectures and bonuses here which all add serious value! Keep up the great work, I'll definitely be picking up some more of your content in the future. Now, back to putting this all into action.. Many Thanks, Simon
Everything explained clearly, step by step. The course offers many practical solutions. Instructer is excellent. Thanks for your sincere efforts.
The course is packed with helpful advice and recommendations, even as a beginner I felt like I was understanding everything and learning a lot of useful skills and tips for my first online course building project. Thanks Phil!
the course really covers everything about effective online courses from A to Z. I highly recommended taking this one. good luck
