One of the most prized possessions of modern day internet, is the learning material available to students, instructors and professionals. What about the entities that create the learning material? Can you become one of them? Of course you can. Here is how.
Udemy offers hundreds of courses on programming, math, science and much more for the average student to encompass in a day’s time. To create a course on Udemy, you need to start by drafting a course objective or goal, or an area of interest you think students need to learn. Once that is done, you move to the next step.
Buy the necessary equipment like Microsoft Learning essentials, bamboo pad, audio condenser microphone, and a nice webcam to record videos for your lectures. Make sure you create well crafted videos for your students to learn.
After the videos have been created, start by creating quizzes and assignments with projects for each module of the topics present in your course syllabus, for students to practice on. Udemy will verify the legitimacy of your course through it’s own check and balance system, making sure you haven’t replicated another course. Once, that is done, your course will be verified.
Once your course is verified, you can start marketing the course by spending a small amount on Facebook Marketing. According to Udemy, 1 in 4 instructors earn more than $10,000 a month, but that margin can only be attained through good marketing, high quality courses and well thought out curricula.
