Setting up your basic tech and online school
There are three major ways to sell your online courses.
- online course marketplaces (eg Udemy)
- learning management systems (we will be using Thinkific in this course)
- plugins or software on your website.
There is a very big difference between online course marketplaces and learning management systems.
A learning management system is your own private Academy that you can link to your website and fully brand as your own platform.
It makes online course creation simple and easy to sell your learning products. A personal favourite of mine is Thinkific – I personally host all of my courses on this platform.
In Module 3 of my
“Course Creation Group Coaching Program”, we will go into much more detail about online courses marketplaces vs online course LMS’s; as well as where and how to sell your online courses, how your school fits with your website and email marketing software and much more:
On top of your online school, there is also some other essential technology and equipment that you may wish to acquaint yourself with if you want to take online course creation seriously going forward.
- Email marketing software: We will be setting you up on Active Campaign as part of my
“Course Creation Group Coaching Program“
- Your own website (this is where all of your marketing should be directed to)
- Some filming equipment (optional)
In Module 3 of my
“Course Creation Group Coaching Program“ I take participants through exactly what technology and equipment to use, how to use it and how it all connects together for the most effective, automated and streamlined experience for you and your students.
