The Online Course Guy

My name is Steve Gillis - the Online Course Guy. I have been creating and teaching online courses since the early 2000s. I love online learning so much, that in 2009 I obtained a Master of Education degree in Distance Education (a fancy way of saying online learning).

After completing my Masters I came across several online courses that offered to teach people how to make money from online courses. Some were good, some were awful, and some were overpriced (one course was $2400 - who can afford that)?

I realized that with my knowledge, skills, and experience in online learning I had a lot to offer to those with little or no online course design experience, so I set out to create courses that are affordable and that are taught in plain, understandable language. Here's proof:

The Beginner's Guide to Creating Online Courses

I am in the process of creating my first course, and with Steve's help I was able to better wrap my head around the process of getting my ideas organized so that I could take the necessary steps to get my course put together and on the market.

One new thing I learned from this course was Google Ad words. This was a real bonus for me. I wanted something like this: to see how many searches were being done on my topic from my location.

PowerPoint for Teachers

Before I purchased this course, all I could do was add slides and type in a boring looking presentation and not that well either. I've only finished 16 of the 42 presentations and I have learned soooo much. By chance, my group had to do a PowerPoint at work. At that point, I only finished up to lesson 8 and my team mates thought I was awesome because I was able to do a basic PowerPoint. Go figure. Thank-you for creating this course so that I can go at it at my own pace. I will definitely look for other courses by this teacher.
