I really enjoyed this course. It has some really great tips, exactly what I needed as an introduction to producing e-courses. John's course is packed with useful information and his presentation style is really engaging and he makes it very easy to understand. Thanks John.

Loretta26 February 2018

I enjoyed the course because the information provided was direct and to the point. The information will be very useful in developing courses.

Fuad6 September 2017

Brilliant course, thank you! You mention desire, setting goals, knowing your audience, planning, being excellent teacher vs. being SME, perfect English vs charming second language, you got me and I got all your courses :) i am studying it now, I am seventh generation of teachers family temporarily working in IT LOL my first course will be... big secret!

David2 November 2016

This course is excellent. The presentation method and presentations are straight forward. The examples I can understand easily, John's presentation style is clear and concise. I have a few other courses on this topic and I find this one to be the best thus far. I have purchases other courses of John's based on this course presentation and flow. Super job conveying information in the manner that you do!

Patricia24 August 2016

Excellent content and delivery is spot-on! Worth every penny. I got it with a coupon, but it's worth full price. He kept me engaged and gave me a wealth of valuable information. I recommend it without reservation.

Vicky1 August 2016

The content was relevant. There was not only useful information but there were real life examples of how to utilize the information contained in the course so that your first Udemy course is one the creates value for potential students immediately. This course takes the student from conception to completion in well developed, clear, and concise lectures. It even provides proven strategies to market your course!

Craig16 May 2016

John's straight forward style delivers content of substance in a way that is readily able to be applied. As with all his other courses, this one delivered on its promised value and was well worth the price.

Sebastian15 May 2016

John provides excellent information, his method of delivery is exciting and engaging. I greatly enjoyed this course and it gave me inspiration and motivation to continue to create online courses. Great course!

Kathleen5 February 2016

I already have a course on Udemy, but it si not selling so I wanted to take this to see how to proceed with better marketing strategies. There is plenty of information shared here, but none of it really goes into detail in a step by step way.

James25 January 2016

John is brilliant in the delivery of the course. He delivers a fantastic amount of information in an engaging manner. It's well worth the money, and I shall be watching it again and again, as he inspires me to create and publish.

Holger7 January 2016

I love Johns teaching style. I have a few courses from JPD, and listen frequently to his podcasts. His stuff is content heavy, and what I like most NO fluff. Anyway it is easy to understand for everyone.

Laurens30 November 2015

I expect to get a little overlap with John Colley's big course, but this one was great to get the basics, and more, quickly. Also, John Colley tends to update his courses regularly, and this one is no exception.

Chris30 November 2015

John Colley knows his subject, it is well worth taking his course. John's style is straightforward and easy to watch and understand.

Andrew20 July 2015

This course gives you everything you need to start making money teaching on Udemy. The course is well produced and well delivered. John is a veteran Udemy instructor and podcaster which makes for an entertaining and informative course.

Rich11 July 2015

This is the second course of Colley's I have taken. Each of them have added to my knowledge base and I will be back for more!
