How to teach a Udemy course a treasure trove of resources

Given my high from completing my first Udemy course as illustrated in my previous post  I took no time relatively speaking and completed my 2nd course: How to Create Your Own Udemy Course.  I should point out this particular class is Free so all you need to do to sign up is to get an account, or better yet just log in with your pre-exisiting Facebook account.

Certificate for completing How to Teach  Udemy Course

There are numerous courses on this website, and as I learned the hard way most of them you can get for about $10 if you sign up to email alerts. The course that I have yet to complete which happened to be my 1st one as far as even finding out what Udemy is happens to be: Mini Habit Mastery: The Scientific Way To Change Your Habits. I am still making my way through it, needless to say I do believe in not trying to change too much at once and creating tiny goals for yourself.

The course I just finished has a large number of resources available to you, so if you are like me and teaching is something you do even if not for Udemy it’s a worthwhile course on how to create a worthwhile course to set yourself apart from the others.

Launch of my very own website.

It took me a while but I finally created my own webpage. I am the type of person that doesn’t just jump into something without learning a bit about it first. In this particular case I applied my usual method of learning something new.

First see if you can find a real person who is an expert in what you want to learn. In my case I was fortunate to find a class being taught after work in my area on WordPress 101 taught by Adam Silver. It was great to learn from someone who is clearly passionate about using WordPress and having a class room of other like minded individuals was another bonus in that if you can sit in and hear others asking questions it provides more opportunities to learn.

My second step was to find an online video based course I could take at my own pace. The after work class was a great start but I wanted something more so I signed up to an online course Create, Update and Manage Your Own Website Using WordPress by Kathleen Farley.  After a few weeks of going through this at my own pace I’m happy to say I’ve finished it and have now taken the plunge into getting content onto my website.

This is the first course on Udemy that I actually completed, needless to say I highly recommend it.
