What People Are Saying About My Courses

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.

Great information on the basics of creating an online course. The tips on researching your topic were clear and very useful as this step is often overlooked when we first set out to create a course. Thanks Steve!
