Guidelines for Creating Your Course on OraDMT.com
It's quite simple to create your course on this platform. The interface enables you to have all your materials together without losing your way in the process. Again, this system is so user friendly in that no student will need to reach out to you when you're busy with some other things, asking where certain content is. However, while getting your course into the e-learning platform is as easy, the need for proper course preparation is paramount. Remember, besides the system, a student is here to buy your course specifically; take your time and ensure that you've offered something that will pull off many others elsewhere right into your class. To enable you do this, we have prepared the following guidelines for you:
First Stage: Choose your course.
OraDmt has documented several courses for you. Pick what you're experienced and passionate about. We have major categories, sub-categories and sub-sub-categories. If you're okay handling a sub-category in full, feel free. Otherwise, you can just pick the very specific thing where your expertise lie.
Second Stage: Be specific on your target student and the projected outcome
Let the user know from the onset whether they belong in your class. Once you've your target students defined, you can never go wrong with the content. What you want to achieve at the end of the course will determine what you offer to your students; be clear on it.
Third Stage: Explain the Application part of your course
Let the students know beforehand how the course will help them outside the classroom. Show the value of what you're offering. The best way to do this is to try and offer practical-based lessons as much as possible. Give your students some practical activities to engage on - that way, you're sure they will be able to apply the lessons after the training.
Fourth Stage: Prepare your Course Outline
Now this defines your course from the beginning to the end. How your course outline looks like will either sell you more or lead you to locking your classroom doors. Be very keen on it; make it clear and real. Do not outline what you won't present in the content.
Fifth Stage: Prepare the course and Upload all content
This is a process that requires a lot of professionalism. You can be very great in a particular area but it's your ability to convince someone that you really are that counts. Call it the power of packaging. Do whatever it takes to have your course materials perfectly presented.
Where you need videos, and I bet you highly will, ensure they are done professionally. Record the audios using a professional recorder and let your write-ups be well done.
Once your courses are complete, upload them onto the system accordingly.
Sixth Stage: Prepare Compeling Videos
Having a compelling video is key for your course. Quality video lectures can set your course apart. Use our resources to learn the basics. The following are some of the areas where you may need a good looking video for your course;
- A Trailer / Course Intro Video - 1 video
- Course / Lecture Videos - optional for each lecture.
The following are some of the ways you can quickly product your videos:
- Using your phone or computer and editing online - cheapest and fastest but may not be a quality video
- Preparing a studio at home - you will need to invest in studio gear, lighting, cameras and some editing skills.
- Use our Studio - you will receive all the help needed from our well-trained professionals to produce quality videos
- Hire a studio elsewhere - you can also hire a studio.
