When creating a course, do you get overwhelmed even before you begin?
When you sit down to write a course, a blank page stares back at you. The empty document should be full of possibilities, but as the cursor blinks, it's hard to know what to do. How do you begin? What should you put in, and more importantly, what should you leave out? And as you start to assemble ideas, how do you make sure they all work together as a whole and not just a mish-mash of "content."
I had a similar problem when I first started creating online courses
I'd spend an incredible amount of time figuring out what to teach and how to teach it. Never being sure that what I created would fit together in a way other people could understand and follow. I just kept putting time in every day while hoping things would fall into place. When I finished, I didn't look forward to going through that process again. So I created very few courses.
Which is why I had to work out a system
A system that let me create courses in a short time frame. A system that was simple and repeatable, I could look forward to creating the next one. Could such a goal even be possible?
Presenting: The Atomic Course Blueprint
If you ask seasoned course builders, they'll tell you it takes a while to create a great course. And they're right because even a small course is complex with many elements. Just getting started with a decent outline can take days, even a week.
But what if we're approaching the construction of a course in the wrong manner?
Each course is treated as a snowflake as if they are entirely unique. But what if there is an underlying structure to good teaching? Instead of having to figure everything out from scratch, you'd start with a template upon which to hang your ideas. The blank page would no longer mock you because it wouldn't be blank at all. You'd have a starting point and a system to get from A to B.
That's what this course is all about.
No more agony about which elements to include in your program. No more wrestling about what-goes-where. Instead, you have a solution that works seamlessly every single time, and ticks all the boxes. What's better is that the process is systematic, involving three separate stages. You will acquire a permanent skill and be able to create courses any time you want.
What’s different about the Atomic Course Blueprint?
Most programs focus on creating planet-sized courses, but they take so much effort you create few of them. I show you how to make tiny courses that can be created in weeks. With this skill, you'll end up with a library of offerings for your customers.
What the course is
- A system for organizing the information in your head, so you create a fantastic learning experience for your students
- A way to create bite-sized learning. This atom-sized course shows you how to create atom-sized courses. Yes, your course will take an hour or less for students to finish.
- Only 33 pages at 14-point font. Bottom line: 40 minutes of reading.
What it is not
- It does not cover technology, such as choosing platforms to host a course.
