So best of luck on your road to creating the course of the world is waiting to see. Now let's get started. 3. Filming Base Videos for Lectures: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled filming base videos for lectures, lights, camera, action. It's show time. Your equipment is all set up. Your scripts are prepared, and now it's time to spin some magic in the studio. But before we begin, let's discuss a few basics. First up, let's answer the first question. What is a base video? In this course, the base video will be the raw recording that you create in photo booth or whatever recording software you'll be using. It's rough and edited and forms a foundation for your finished masterpiece. It may include mistakes, it may be off centered, or the sound may need adjusting. And all of that is okay because we can fix it when we get to the editing part. However, there is a limit to what editing can do. So make the base video the best it can be. Now because millions of people will be watching. You want to pay attention to your appearance. I've seen a few promo videos in the first thing I thought was what were they thinking? With that said, keeping the back of your mind that it's hard to be objective about yourself. So make sure to brush your hair where professional clothing and add a touch of makeup if that's your thing. And once the cameras starts rolling, remember to relax and smile. Sometimes I find that difficult to do when I'm just talking to my camera. B is comforting and inviting as you can be. And then speak slowly, clearly and with a relaxed sense of confidence. Also avoid using slang or humor because you never know how will that translate on the other side of the camera. Feel free to use different camera angles. I mostly use talking head shots, right? Look straight into the camera. But I've also used Interview angles or I'm not looking at the camera. You can also use more distant shots if you're trying to demonstrate something. Now it doesn't matter how smooth you are at reading texts sooner or later you're going to make mistakes. Everyone does, and they're easy to fix. So don't sweat it. If you stumble over your words in the middle of a script, just pass for a moment. Clap your hands like that. And we'd another second or two, then continue with your script. The hand clap or serve as a nifty marker when you get to the editing. Also when you're filming, it doesn't take long to get mentally tired and fatigued shows up very readily in a complete video, and it's a bit off-putting. When I get tired, I start making a lot of mistakes. When that happens, it's time for me to take a break. So don't push yourself too hard. And once you choose your microphone setting, like the gain on your Yeti microphone, don't change them for the duration of your course. You want your sound to remain consistent so it doesn't disturb your listeners. And just a brief reminder. Try to keep your lecture videos as short as possible, ideally under five minutes. Okay, that's it for the discussion on base videos. Let's go to the next lecture now and I'll show you how to make one complete with mistakes. I'll see you there. 4. Demo - Filming Base Videos for Lectures : Okay, Welcome, Here we are at making our first sample video of a lecture. So I've got my microphone plugged in. I'm in my quiet space and now we just gotta get the lighting turned on. So let's get that going. Essentiality the windows. So I mean, I need this extra lighting, but I'll use it anyway. And then I turn on this one. Okay, We're ready to go. Okay, Welcome. Let's find out how to make our first recording of a lecture video. So we're going to start off by moving our screen down here and we're going to open photo booth. Where is it? There it is. I'm going to double-click on that. My screen again. And there is photo booth up here and you can see me. I'm a bright smiling face. And so the first thing I like to do with photo loop before I get started is I like to enlarge it so I can see how I look. So my hair is a little off there looking good. And then once I click Okay and that's acceptable, or shrink it up and kinda put it out of the way and we're gonna put in the background later. Then I'm going to go into my external hard drive, which is right here in my upper right-hand corner. I'm going to double-click on it. And we're gonna see our course right here. And that's the folder we created in part 1 of this course. And that's what we're going to store all of our information for our videos. So we're going to open our course and then we're gonna go to text. And here is Lecture 1, the curious mind, and that's the text we're going to use for this lecture. And I wrote that in part 1 of this course. So we're going to open that up. And there it is. And then I'm going to x this box out to get it out of the way. Okay, now if you're using a teleprompter, this is where you would copy and paste this information and then put it into your teleprompter and make sure your teleprompter centered in the Texas near the top so you can actually look into the camera. Okay, so everything looks good here. So I'm going to just start. So when I hit this little button here to change our red dot from still shot to a video. And then when I hit this button, there's going to be a countdown and then I'll begin reading. So let's start and see what happens. Now, click on my text to bring that to the friend. Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled The curious. Okay, so I goofed up right away. So what I'm gonna do is that I'm not going to keep this one since I just goofed up beginning, what I'm gonna do is just stop it. And the video will appear in the lower right hand corner. And that's simply going to delete it. By clicking on it. You'll see that the x there and then it's gone. Okay, So we'll start over. So let's try again. Here we go. Countdown. Hello, and welcome to the lecture entitled The curious mind. The meditation following this course is a very simple guided meditation that can be a great starting technique to creating lasting sense of inner calm and peace as you will find. Okay, so my, my voice is kinda groggy there. So what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna keep photo booth running. And I'm going to set a marker that we'll use later by clapping my hands and that will an audio market with that, we'll find when we're editing it. And then I'm just going to start again. I'm going to pause for a second, pick up from where I left off. The meditation following this lecture is a very simple guided meditation that can be a great starting technique to create a lasting sense of inner calm and peace. As you will find it. All that will be left is peace. Okay, That's it. It's very easy. All you have to do is relax, pay attention and I'll do the rest. Okay, let's go to the meditation now and be curious about creating deep and lasting peace. Okay, that's it for the lecture. So what I'm gonna do is I'm just going to X out my text here. And then I'm going to stop the video. And so here's our base video down in the lower right-hand corner. If you want to play it back, you have to do is double-click on it. But what I'm gonna do right now is I'm going to save it. So I'm gonna double-click on my external hard drive. I'm going to go to our course. I'm going to move my screen over there, go into our course. And then I'm going to go into base video, it's right here. And I'm going to move this over here. And we'll stop it as it transfers over to my external hard drive. Now I'm going to rename it. I'm going to click on it. I'm going to hit the return button. It's going to highlight it. I'm going to call it. Let's see, I'm going to call it 0101 base. We call lecture. And I'll call it a curious mind. Okay, So there it is. There's our base video, all finished and complete and we'll come back and use it when we're ready to edit it. So that's it, that's nothing to it and that's how you record your lecture video. And let's move on to the next lecture. Now, I'll see you there. 5. Filming Base Videos or Audios for Meditations: Hello and welcome to the lecture titled filming based videos or audience for meditation's, There are a number of software options to film your base videos for meditation. It all depends on what you wanna do. If you want to show your face or do you only want your students to hear your voice? If you want to show your face, then you'll need to record a base video on photo booth, similar to lecture videos. In my meditations. I don't want to show my face because my students eyes will be closed. Plus I want them to focus inward. So I don't want my face to be a distraction. So if you're only recording your voice, there are numerous voice recording options available for computers and phones. I'll show you three simple ones I use on my laptop. First, there are a number of free voice recording apps you can download from the Apple store. The one that my computer is simply called voice memo and it's very easy to use. You can also record straight into iMovie. It's also very simple. However, the microphone may not be turned on if that's the case. Here's what you need to do, okay, here we are in the app iMovie. And what I wanna do is record my voice and it's very easy to do. As you go down to the bottom of your screen, you'll see a red dot. And you can see are in microphone motoric there. So we're gonna hit the red dot. And what it's gonna do is we're going to begin recording. Kit a countdown. And now we're recording. And you can see it's not registering on this little bar to the left, which should show me via my voice going up and down. And it's also showing the recording audio file on the bottom of the screen here where my cursor is and you can see nothing's registering maps, so that means my microphone is not turned on. So what I'm gonna do is gonna hit the spacebar to start. And then I'm just going to highlight by clicking on that audio bar and then I'm just going to delete it. So now we're going to figure out how to solve the problem. So it's really easy, allows you do is you go down to system preferences, which is I'm a dark minor. And manual go into security and privacy is right there. And on the left here you'll see a number of different tabs. And we're going to look for a microphone which is right there. And we're gonna click on iMovie. And then it'll ask you to Clinton now. So once your boxes clicked, you ready to go and he's gotta restart my movie and then you can record your voice. And that's it. So let's keep going. The third option is in using photo booth without giving any regard to the video quality. That's because you can cover the video up with an image later on when you edit. The reason to use Photo Booth is because it may offer the best quality of your voice based on the variables of your studio, which may include sound in the room, your computer, and your microphone. So you're going to have to experimental little with which combinations work the best for you. Make sure to get your voice quality the best it can be because of poor voice quality can break your course. Also, don't mix software. For example, don't use voice memo for your induction and iMovie for the body of your meditation. The sound quality, it most likely won't match up. And that can have a negative impact on the quality of your recording. Okay, that's it for recording bass videos for meditation's. Let's keep moving. And I'll see you at the next lecture. 6. Demo - Filming a Meditation: Hello and welcome to the sample of filming and meditation. So the first thing we wanna do before we begin is that we want to open voice memo, which is what we're going to use in this demonstration. I'm going to go down to my launchpad, click on launchpad, and then all of the apps I have my computer or shop there and narrow you can see Voice Memo is right here. It's also on my dark down here, MOOC it down there for easy access. But for this purpose, we'll just open it from here. So I'll double-click voice memo, and there it is. And then the next thing I'm going to do is I'm going to go into my external hard drive. Double-click on that. Go into our course text. And I'm going to open the meditation. They arose in part one. So there is, okay, so it's very simple. It's just like recording a lecture, except you don't have to worry about how you look. The important thing is your voice. So you make sure your voice is very soothing, calm, rhythmic with lots of pause in between. And then you notice six and unimportant where I place my text on the screen because it doesn't matter if my eyes wander all over the place because I'm not going to show my face during this meditation. So let's go into voice memo and all you have to do to start is hit the red button. And you'll see we're recording now. And I'll click on my texts to bring that to the fret. And I'll begin to read. Hello, and thank you for joining me on this brief journey. Before we begin, get yourself situated in a comfortable position. Take a deep breath and we'll begin to relax. I know sometimes it can be difficult to relax or to learn how to relax more than you'll ever have before. So stay with this experience where a few moments in silence. You don't have to do anything except relax and allow your detached mind to do all the work for you. Okay, that's it for the end of the meditation. So I need to do now is just close out my text. And I'm going to end our video, our little audio here, excuse me. And then I'm going to save it into our external hard drive case. We're just going to open the external hard drive. Go into our courts where information is going to base videos. We're just going to drag and drop it over into that file, and there it is. And then we're going to rename it. We're going to call it 0 to base meditation. Okay, so now we're gonna go back one and I'm going to rename completed videos based video, excuse me, to base audio and videos because now as audios and videos in it, so it's more descriptive. Okay, that's pretty much it will just expand out. Close our apps. And that's it. Let's keep moving on to the next lecture and I'll see you there. 7. Starting a Project in iMovie: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled starting a project in a movie. So this is pretty easy to do. So we're going to start is on our desktop here and we're gonna go down to our dark and find iMovie. Double-click on it there. And up pops iMovie. And as you can see, there's two tabs here. There's the media one and the project one. And so we're in projects because they're going to start a new project. And to create a new project, all you do is click on create a new project. Click iMovie. And there we go, up, pops a blank screen and we're ready to start our project. And I'm movies. And I introduced you to all the features in iMovie and part one. So we'll get into using those and just fit. So essentially, that is all we gotta do to start a project I add movie is simply open it up. So that's it. Let's move on to the next part. I'll see you there. 8. Adding Theme Music : Hello and welcome to the lecture titled Adding theme music. Okay, here's where the fun begins. The music accompanies your intro and outro images. I'll be the first things your students will hear when they begin to why 20-year videos catchy music, or leave a permanent oppression in their subconscious mind. So pick something that you identify with and something that's meaningful to you. So here's a few points to consider when putting your theme music together. First, don't violate anyone's copyright. If you want to use commercial music, You must get permission or buy a license. Also, if you use commercial music, Don't forget it to add it to your credits at the end of your course. Also, iMovie has a number of jingles and music clips that you can use for free. There are also places on the internet where you can find free music. So if you want to go that route, do an internet search for free meditation music or free yoga music. And you'll be sure to find something you like. There's also plenty available if you're willing to pay a small license fee. And also your intro and outro theme music should also be brief. Try and keep it somewhere around five seconds or so. And also, don't change your theme music. Keep it the same for all of your courses. That way it'll become a recognizable part of your brand. In the following clip, I'll begin building our first video by adding the music. Let's go there now and see how it works. 9. Demo - Adding Theme Music: So welcome to the demonstration of adding theme music to your project. Okay, here's where things start to get fun. And so how are we gonna do this? We're gonna go into our template of iMovie. And there's a tab bar on the top here we're going to click Audio. And on the left here will have different places where your audio comes from. Music would be from your computer. Sound effects are what are, come free with iMovie. And so we're going to use one of those. And when you click on sound effects, you'll see a little box appears. Click on, and that's all the different categories of iMovie sound effects. Okay, so there's like sci-fi jingles, people sounds. And we're going to use jingles because we want little music clips. So there you go. And when you see this box here, it shows you all the different clips they have in their little jingles. And we're going to use a Lyceum shorts. We're going to click on that, hold down the mouse pad and just drag it into iMovie. And there it shows up. We're going to take it all the way over to the left, which is the beginning for just going to drop it in there. And we're gonna hit the space bar here, and it's going to start to play. So here we go. It's very nice music, but for me it's a little too loud, so I wanted it in the background. Somebody from a 100% down to 20%. And you can see the total arrows there. On the volume control. One points up, one points down, and we're going to drag it down. I'm going to click and just drag it down to about 20% and let it go. Here we go. Are you take it back to the beginning? Now this clip is about ten seconds long and I would like it to be about seven seconds long. So what I'm gonna do is I'm going to move to the very left of this audio clip and you'll see where the yellow vertical line lights up. And there's two little arrows there, one points left, one points right? And so I'm going to click on that and just drag it to the right. Until it hits about seven seconds. There we go. And there's my video clip. And now I want it to move it all the way over to the left, to the beginning. And then we're just going to drag it over all the way over to the beginning. So there we have our 7 second clip volume we like. Now one thing I also like to do is I like to fade in so you don't hear music just the beginning, but it kinda eases its way in. And so if you go and illuminate the vertical line on the left, you'll see there's a little tiny arrows right there. On the upper half of the audio bar. I'm just going to click and drag that. So it goes out 202 seconds. And so let's go back and plant. So it sounds like a nice fade in background music. That's just as long as I like it. So that's how you add theme music. There's nothing to it. So let's move on to the next lecture. 10. Creating Intro and Outro Images: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled Creating intro and outro images. Intro and outro images are the first and last images your students will see at the beginning and end of your video. Remember, self-promotion is usually not allowed here, so don't use your name or your logo. Here are a few points to consider when making your intro and outro images. First op, there's really no reason to violate anyone's copyright because it's easy to get free photos online. Sites can easily be found by doing an internet search for free photos. Also, file types are important when working with photos, the most common graphic files I use with iMovie or JPEG files. I'll give you a brief demo and how to create those in the following video clip. The ideal size ratio for photos in iMovie is 16 wide by nine high and that's an industry standard. However, it's not absolute because you can crop your photos to 16 by nine in iMovie after you've uploaded them. But it's usually better to start with the 16 by nine, so you don't lose part of your picture. You'll want to also add text to your intro and outro images. If you're good at graphic design and no programs like Photoshop, then it'll be a breeze. If not, you can create text on your images on free internet sites. All you have to do is search, adding text to images. I'll also walk you through a three-step demonstration using the apps, pages, and preview that come on your computer to add text to images in the following video clip. Then once you get intro and outro screens made, all you have to do is drag them and drop them into iMovie over your theme music. There's nothing to it. So let's go to the following video clip and I'll show you how it's done. 11. Demo - Creating Intro and Outro Image: Hello and welcome to the lecture for the demonstration on creating intro and outro images. If you're using Photoshop or if you add a text to your images from a free internet site, then you can skip this lecture. But I'm going to use the apps, pages and preview to create a JPEG image. So here we go through and start. They're going down to our dark down here. And we're going to find pages. And so we're going to open pages. Ok, so once we get pages open, we want to make sure we have the rate ratio of our page site that 16 by nine. So how you do that is you go into file, you go into Page Setup. And then in paper size, you're going to go into custom, manage custom sizes. And then you'll see pay precise here at our 16 wide by nine high, and that's what we want. So isn't that you want to set it to that. And then you want to make sure it's set to up Landscape, which would be right there. Okay, so we have it all set up there. And I've also shrunk the zoomed down to 50% break there. And that way I can see the whole page. Okay, so now what I'm going to do that I have my page setup and we're gonna go into my external hard drive and open our course where we say for each thing and I'm going to go into screens. Now what I did before I opened pages that I went to a free internet site and I downloaded the course image I want to use for this course. And so I was, I'm gonna do is take that image. I'm going to click on it and drag it right into pages right there and there it is. And I'll click that out. And then I'm going to move my image so it takes up the entire page. Now you'll see that it's created another page below there. As I get it to fit in just as I like. And so what you need to do, go into a range. And then it says automatic for text wrapping here and we're gonna put it on. And that little page will disappear at the bottom. And there you go. There's our image. And now we're gonna add text. So what we're gonna do is we're going to go up to insert at the very top bar in pages. And we're gonna see insert text box right there. And so now we have a tax and we're gonna put it right in the middle. Maybe stretch it out. That fire whenever you're choosing is I'm going to highlight the tax though it is really small right now. And I'm going to center it in the middle of the page. And I'm going to center it up and down and also vertically. And then I'm going to increase the font size to o will go up to 44. We'll say. We'll have 44. And we'll call it our course. Very nice. So there's an intro image that's mayor, but now we need to change it into a JPEG file. So what we're gonna do is we're going to go into Pages. We've my screen or just detach. We're gonna go into file at the top bar there. And we're gonna go export to, and we're going to export it as a PDF file. Okay, we're gonna keep it at its best. We're gonna go next. And then we're going to find it in our external hard drive, right? They're going to, our course in screens is where we're going to save it in. And we're gonna give it a name, we're gonna call it, we'll call it course title. And it's going to be saved right there. We had a PDF PDF file. Now that's not good enough for pages. Pages aren't a JPEG file, so we need to change the pdf file into a JPEG file. Go down into our dark. We're going to go into Launchpad. And there we'll find preview right here. We're going to open preview. And it will say preview. And then we're gonna go into preview and we're going to hit File and open. Then we're gonna find our PDF file in our course. So it's screens. There's our PDF file, it says course flower. We're going to open that file again and preview and we're going to hit export. And it has a different file types that we can export our document as we don't want to PDF, but we wanted JPEG. And, and where it is to be saved, you'll see it in screens is which is where we want it. So you want to make sure it goes into the right file. And then you click on that, go to the lower right corner and hit Save. And then we're going to X out a preview. We're going to make sure it's saved. Our external hard drive. And you'll see course title is right there. And you'll see down here that it's a JPEG image, and that's the image we're going to use. Okay, so now we have created our course title, okay, but now we want to create the table for the lecture. I'll stop because I put two jpegs at the beginning of each lecture. And so this is our pages document here and we're gonna make sure to name it course title. And that's going to be saved in our screens there. And we're going to just go up to hit greens. We have three court three-course titles. Wanted to JPEG, ones that pages. And one's a PDF document. In the PDF we're not going to use, but we need it as a stepping stone ticket to a J peg. So we now we have our course title right here. So now we're going to create our lecture title. And what we're gonna do instead, they're going through the whole building process from scratch where we're simply gonna do. You're gonna go up to File here. In pages. We're gonna see duplicated. So we've just duplicated our course title and we're going to go to the image behind it, which is the original. We're going to close that out so we don't need that anymore. And then we're going to rename this up in this upper box. We're going to call it lecture title. That's going to be a title for our lecture. Curious copy. And it's going to save it in screens. Okay, so we're going to hit file save. And so now our pages lecture title is saved in the screens and we're simply going to go into the textbox and change the name and at two lecture one. Then we're going to go through the same process again, we're going to export it as a PDF file. The best. You'll see, it's already set up for us to go into our screens. And so a disco export. And now we can close out our pages. Document. You don't need that anymore. It will save it, yes. And we're gonna go down to our doc. I'm gonna go back into Launchpad. We're gonna hit preview. And then we're going to file and premium are gonna go open a new document. And what we're looking for is the one that says lecture title. That's a PDF document. And there it is, right there. You're going to open that file again. We're going to export it one more time. And we're going to export it as a jpeg file. And it's already set to be saved in our screens folder. And just go down and see that there. And we'll make sure it's there by looking in our external hard drive, better screens. And then we have our different screens or rehab lecture title that as a J peg right there. And of course titled this JPEG right there. And then we're all set. Okay, that's all there is to it. So let's keep moving and I'll see you in the next lecture. 12. Demo - Adding Intro and Outro Images: Hello and welcome to the demonstration on adding intro and outro images to our movie. Okay, so here we go. I'm going to start off by going into my external hard drive. Into our course, where we have our images saved and screen. We're going to start off with our course tail at the beginning of our little video here. And we want the JPEG image that we created. So we're just going to click it and drag it right down to the beginning. Here we go. Here it is. And then after that, we're gonna put in our lecture title, which is also jetpack. And we're gonna put it, track it down right next to that one. There we go. Okay, so now we have our images, our intro and outro images. And so what I wanna do, first of all, we only get them situated. So we're going to highlight this one, our lecture video. And we're gonna go up to the feature here of cropping. And so as we start our, our video, you'll see. And I don't really want that for this particular one as we opened up and that's called the Ken Burns style. As we go into our cropping, I'm just gonna have it fit. So the image is just gonna fit. It's not gonna move when it opens up. And I'm gonna do the same thing to our next image here. I'm just going to have them both fit. Okay, there we go. So let's just see what it looks like as we start. That's all nice and dandy. So what I'd like to do with each of my images, and I like to have them fade in. So I'm going to use some transition, hundreds, a whole bunch of different transitions you can play with in iMovie. So I highly recommend that you do that. But the one I'm going to use for openers today is, is called crossover zoom. And I'm gonna put it in at the very beginning when it starts. And then if you double-click on it, you can adjust the time or the duration. And I'm going to set it to a second and have 1.5 seconds when it started Xunzi, like that touch. And then we're going to put a crisis and zoom transition between the two images. And I'm going to also set that one at 1.5. There we go. Apply. And then you'll notice that my images on longer than my sound. So anyway, that's just my images. Just drag their vertical bar and I'm gonna sum in about two seconds each. So they're about right there. And what will extract the end. Okay, and so this is what it will look like when someone starts our video. Let's take a look, see afflux. That's all very good for the beginning, but I also want to put an image and a transition at the end for my outro of cylinder. My video's done. You'll see a little outro image. So what we're gonna do, I'm gonna highlight that transition there. I'm going to hold down the Shift slide. And I'm going to click on my image and I'm going to hit command c to copy that. So I'm just going to copy that. I'm going to go to the end, hit command, be handled, paste it. However, that's not quite how I like it. I'd like some music at the end also, so I'm going to copy music, I highlight it, hit Command C, and then simply hit command. And that will be the music. I don't want it as shorter. You would just as long as the image. And I'm gonna make it about five seconds at the end. And in our image to be just slightly longer than the sound. Okay, so let's try it again. But it sounds like at the beginning, at the end. Okay, that's it for this lecture. So let's move on to the next one. Learn how to add our base video in-between our intro and outro. I'll see you there. 13. Demo - Adding Base Video: Okay, welcome to the demonstration of adding our base video. Okay, so what we're gonna do is I'm gonna start by going into the external hard drive. We're gonna go into our courses. We're gonna go into base audio and video. So base one lectures there is the one that I recorded in part one of this course. I'm going to drag it and drop it into 100 intro and outro screens when there. And here's one nice feature in the upper right-hand corner above our basic video just called Settings, are great next to the settings. And you can zoom in and zoom out by moving that little arrow back and forth. So I'm going to zoom in to about there. And then I'm going to click on my sound because this music, I want to have it at the end and I'm just gonna move it all the way to the end of my video right there. So it winds up above ground line, it is pretty good. And then I'm gonna add a transition also at the end between my outro video and the end of my video, I am going to adjust that so the sound starts about right there. So that looks pretty good. And then I'm gonna click on my bass video. I'm going to make a few adjustments to it. First of all, I'm going to go into the equalizer, a little button right there. And I'm going to enhance my books with bass boost. That makes my voice sound a little deeper and richer. You can see there's a bunch of other adjustments and settings you can play with if you'd like. And then I'm going to go into the crop tab and I'm going to center myself, so I'm right in the middle and I'm going to make it so it doesn't cut my head off at the time. There are Mason center and then the volume level looks pretty good. So I'm not going to adjust it. You see it's not a 100%. And so I'm going to leave it up to a 100% for all the lectures that I do through this entire course. But if you need to make an adjustment, you just moved out volume up or down, but we're gonna leave it out of a 100%. Okay, so then we'll take a little listened to, see how it sounds from the beginning. So far. So good. Hello and welcome to the lecture titled The curious mind. Okay, that's great. So now we're gonna go to the end because remember at the end of this, it was an instructional video at the end. So I want to cut some of that off. So let's listen to that big, deep and lasting peace. Okay, so that's where I'm gonna write down, hit the spacebar and stop it and I'm just going to hit the right vertical adjustment bar and I'm gonna move it in right to there so it ends where I'd like it. So let's see how it, how it ends. Now. There's an auditor S. Okay, let's go into meditation now and be curious without a query. Deep and lasting peace came very again. So that's all there is to it. So we've adjusted and put in our bass video. And so let's move on to the next lecture. And I'll see you there. 14. Demo - Splitting the Screen: Hello and welcome to the lecture titled splitting screen. Splitting the screen in iMovie is a very important feature because it allows you to break up your base video into segments. Once a base video is broken into segments, you can fix mistakes. At transitions, delete sections, speed up or slow down and segment and add a variety effects. This is where I'm movie starts to get very creative and a lot of fun. Let's see how it works. Ok, so now we're in I a movie with our basic video loaded. And we can see these little yellow markings right down here where we made a mistake in our base video. And remember we clapped to the visual marker and there is the visual markers. So when then we're going to drag our visual bar back to right before that began. What we're gonna do, we're gonna hit control click. It's going to give a drop-down option. We can split the clip, we're going to split it right there. Okay, so now we have a split between two different video segments. And so what we can do is that we can drag and shorten this video segment until our mistake is disappeared. And now we're going to zoom in just a little bar right there so we can get a little closer approximation where we exactly want the cut. So let's see how it goes. Yeah, inner calm and peace. But okay, so we've got our split where you want it, but let's put a transition in to make it look nice and smooth. So use that one's signing in and we'll set it to 1.5 seconds. The duration I like will apply and will see it looks now 10K degrading lasting sense of inner calm and peace, that meditation following this cell. And that's how you split your clip and you can put a transition into it. So looks really smooth on your dad. Okay, so that's it for this lecture. Let's move on to the next point. 15. Demo - Adding Titles & Captions: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled adding titles and captions. Titles and captions are text you can add to your video. They're great to emphasize a point in a lecture and help keep your viewers attention by breaking up the scenery and sort of just watching your lovely face on the screen, you can add a few words of text to help grab your students attention. So here's a couple of points to note when adding taxed. First add captions or tax about every 30 seconds or less to keep your students attention engaged. Also in iMovie, the title feature does not include spellcheck. So get in the habit of double-checking your spelling with TextEdit or a word processing our blank pages. Misspellings will give you a video of very amateurish vibe. Okay, let's create some text. Okay, so Lagomorpha back here in a movie or a little demonstration on how to add text. Okay, so we're just going to start our iMovie, the lecture that we're working on and maybe decide where we might put some text him. So here we go. Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled The curious mind. Okay, so I'm gonna put one radian there. I'm gonna call it lecture one. And so we're gonna go to details here. And you can see as in everything else in a movie, there's all sorts of different ways to put text into your video and so you can play around with those. There's all sorts of fun things to do. And I'm gonna use this one called gradient. I'm just going to drag it right in there. And then I'm simply going to type in Lecture one. And in the bottom, I'm just going to put in the title of our course and I'll put that in all of the tax that I add for each video. Just so people know which Coursera. So it's an art course or in lecture one. And There's all sorts of different font types you can pick up here. But we're going to just call it the one that gave us feature medium. And you can play with different font sizes. You can bold it and add other features to your text if you want. But I'm going to hit Control-C and copy it. And then I'm gonna go down to my dark and I'm going to call up tax data and I'm going to copy and paste that in there. And it says lecture. So I did a misspelling there. So I do this every time I put in texts, I always check my spelling because it's not in iMovie. So that looks much better. And I'm going to copy that control C. Well back into iMovie and paste there. And that's all there is. Solid there is to it. So as you go along and listen to your video, you can just drop in tax revenue you think it's appropriate. Okay. That's all there is to it away. I want to check it. One last thing I want to check and make sure it's in the right spot. So let's listen and see where the text is. I'm going to zoom in a little. And now listen. Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled The Curious. Okay, so I'm gonna move it just a little. I'm going to click and drag it. And then you're gonna change the name of it. Lecture one called the curious mind. There we go. And get I minus. I am going to check the spelling on it. Spelling is good. Okay, let's listen to it one more time. Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled get curious mind. There are many, very good, excellent. So that's, I add text here, video, there's nothing to it and you can do that as many times as you want throughout your video. Let's keep movement. See you at the next lecture. 16. Demo - Adding Photos: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled adding photos. Adding photos are a great way to break up the lecture and give your students a visual enhancement of what they're learning. Placing a photo, is it easy drag-and-drop process? Once you've dropped them into place, you can fade them in or fade them out. You can crop them to your liking and add visual effects. Here's a couple of points to note when you're adding pictures. Again, as I mentioned in an earlier lecture, there's no need to violate anyone's copyright because it's easy to find free photos on the internet. Just do a search with the words. Free photos. Also, like text. Add photos every 30 seconds or less. Help keep your students attempted engaged. Okay, so let's add some photos now. Okay, so here we are back at iMovie and now we're going to simply add a photo to help enhance our presentation. So I'm going to go up into my external hard drive. Going into our course, where we're keeping everything. And you'll see I've added a new folder, I call it photos and video clips. And so I'm going to open that one. And you'll see I have a photo in their JPEG photo of man meditating. And so that's what I'm going to drag and drop into this particular spot into my lecture. And so you'll see that the vertical bar here is where I decided I wanted to put my picture. So I'm going to simply drag and drop it in there. Okay, there we go. So now that we have it in there, we can craft or edit to our liking. So you'll see that at the point where I have it there, his face is not quite centered. So I'm going to go up to crop here. And we're gonna do what's called a Ken's can burn style. So it's actually going to fade into his face. And I'm gonna start it right down here. And then as it progresses, I'm going to click the box and shrink it down a little and put it right in the middle. And so when the video's going, it'll actually zoom into his face. And so I'm also going to go up to the cutaway and I'm going to fade it. There's a little thing that says fade here and I'm gonna have it fade in over the period of a 2.5th. So at the beginning, it's going to fade in. At the, at the end it's going to fade out and you can see these little dots I'm on the top. Does the image or where fades into and begins to fade out. And so I'm going to stretch it out there so it feeds rate to where my transition begins and we'll just see what it looks like real quick. Space Boris is a very simple guided meditation. There can be a great starting technique to gradient lasting sense of inner calm. And that's how you drag and drop a photo into your presentation. There's nothing to it. And we'll move on to the next lecture. I'll see it. 17. Demo - Adding Video Clips: Hello and welcome to the lecture titled Adding video clips. Similar to photos, adding video clips are a great way to break up a lecture and give your students a visual enhancement of what they're learning. Placing a video is also a simple drag-and-drop process. Once you've dropped them in, you can fade them in or out, crop them to your liking and add visual effects. Here's a couple of points to note when adding video clips. First off, free video clips are also available to download off the internet. Just do a search with the words, free videos. And remember, videos take up more storage space than photos. If you're layering videos, the final size of your completed videos, maybe more than your platform allows. At the time of this recording, maximum file size for videos was about two gigabytes. And then last, pay attention to when and where you place your videos. Videos added for emphasis completely take over your students attention. So make sure your video placement ads to your message and doesn't distract attention away from it. Okay, that's it for adding video clips. Let's go add one now. Okay, here we are back in iMovie creating our lecture. And so we're going to start off to add a video clip by going into our external hard drive, going to our course. And then we're gonna go into photos and video clips. You'll see here I have one named clouds. It downloaded it free off the internet. And you can tell it's a video because it ends with MP4 as opposed to the photo which ends with jetpack. So here I have my horizontal markers where I'm going to place it. I'm just going to simply drop and drag it to where I want it right there. Okay, so I'm gonna actually fade this one in also, I'm going to click out here. I'm going to click on my video. I'm going to go into the fade screen. And again, I'm going to fade it in a 2.5th. And right now I think the video is longer than a wants and you're gonna need to listen to it and find out where I want to end it. Let's start here and go. Okay, so I want to end it right there. So I'm just going to drag it over there. And that's all there is to it. So dragging and dropping a video is very similar to dragging and dropping your photo. So that's it. Let's move onto our next lecture. See you there. 18. Review and Export: Hello and welcome to the lecture titled review and Export. Now that we've put the final touches on our video, it's time to review it and export it. If you're like me, you probably missed a mistake or two while you were making it. There's nothing more embarrassing and having a student contact you to point out your mistakes were even worse, catching your mistakes months later, only figuring out why your courses aren't selling. Here's a couple of things to consider while reviewing your video. First, try not to reveal your video when you're fatigued or tired. It's too easy to skip over mistakes in that frame of mind. So take a break and get drink water. Also. Make sure your video screen in iMovie is in the full screen mode. That will blow everything up and make it easier to see. And pay extra special attention to intro screens and tidal boxes. Look closely for misspellings. And check the output level of your speakers on your playback device. I sit mine just slightly above halfway. That way you can pick up any glaring problems with sound. Or you may want to use headphones or earplugs. But if you do, make sure to use high-quality ones, and also make sure to watch your video to the very end. There's been more than a few occasions I've had unwanted titles or screens dangling at the end of the outro screen. And also important, very important. When you're exporting your video, set the resolution to 720 p or higher, and pay attention to the size of the exported file. Again, keep it under two gigabytes. Then once you've reviewed your video, It's time to export your video on external hard drive. And iMovie will walk you through it so it's pretty easy. Okay, let's take a look at the next video clip and see how to review an export our video. Then don't forget to watch the following example of our completed lecture to see out, turned out. I'll see you there. 19. Demo -Exporting a Video: Okay, welcome to the demo on how to export your video. Okay, so here we aren't iMovie, I've just finished reviewing my video. Everything looks good. The texts looks good. Videos look good. The pictures look good and it sounds all good. So and how I did is I went into full screen mode. That's us total error that there I clicked on it. That's full-screen mode. And then to get out of it is tit those little arrows going out there. And you can start and stop iMovie just by hitting the spacebar. Okay, so let's get onto exporting our movie here. Okay, so what we're gonna do is we're going to go up into file. And we're going to hit share this little button right here. And we're going to share a file. Ok, and so it says my movie, but we're going to change the name of that by clicking here and we're gonna hit lecture one and that's, we're going to rename it. Then we're going to copy that and rename it here also. You can add tags here. Those are like meta tags to help finding better on the internet. I don't play with those too much. The format we want is on video and audio. You can do audio only, but we're gonna do video and audio book. Here's a resolution, it's very important. You can put that 720 P. That's where we want the lowest. You can go to 1080 P, which is higher resolution. And we'll make our file two bigs, we're not do that and for 55-45 part purposes is too low. Quality we want is high. There's other options, two, and we're going to press it at faster risk and leave it there. And then we're looking at here, we're going to see that our video is two minutes and 46 seconds, and it's only 254 megabytes. So that's good enough size. They're gonna hit next. And we're going to try and find where to put it. So over here on the left of our finder, we're gonna go into our external hard drive. There is our course right there. And we're gonna put in the file completed videos. And then we're just going to hit Save. And there it goes. And as it exports, there's a little circle that have, that appears in the upper right-hand corner. And you could click on that and I will take you, tell you how long it's gonna take to export there. So right now we're looking at about four minutes. So we'll just let it do its thing. Okay, and now our video is just about done exporting. And we're going to check for external hard drive right here. Shirts, they're going into our course. Completed videos. And there it is. Lecture one, nice. Okay, so what we're gonna do now is that we're just going to go into projects, back to our projects. And there's our movie right there. We're gonna rename it. So renamed Project. And we're just going to call it Lecture one. Okay, so we're all done exporting our video into our external hard drive. And let's move on to our next lecture. I'll see you there. 20. Example of a Finished Lecture: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled The curious mind. The meditation following this course is a very simple guided meditation. There can be a great starting technique to creating lasting sense of inner calm and peace. As you will find it cultivates a certain level of necessary detachment between you and any internal mind noise. As you sink into the meditation, you'll realize that whatever internal disturbance you may have is only something you are experiencing. In other words, your stress or inner conflict is not you. It's only something that's happening to you. And as you will experience, this creates a beneficial space between you and the emotion are very helpful gap that enhances the process of letting the disturbance go. Please keep in mind that creating an internal sense of detachment does not mean you won't engage in your life fully afterward. In fact, just the opposite is true because you'll be able to gauge fully in the present moment. However, you won't be burdened with internal disturbances that may come from somewhere in your past or imagined future. Here's what we'll do in the following meditation. First of all, start with a clear cut intention of creating lasting inner peace. Then you'll sit or lie in a comfortable position. Next, I'll guide you into a deeply relaxed state. When you're deeply relaxed, I'll have you become aware of any noise that's in your mind that is not in alignment with inner peace. Then I'll have you effortlessly rest your attention on that noise. And if you get bombarded with mind chatter or distracting thoughts, just let them come and go, like watching clouds drifting by in the sky. Next, you'll simply pay attention to the disturbance as you experience it. Be curious. Say to yourself something like, oh, isn't that interesting? I hear my father's voice in my head. How curious? And as you focus on that experience, you'll begin to feel a weakening, softening or dissolving of the noise. Then we'll direct the noise to release. You may feel it as it begins to spin our swirl and move out of your head. Or maybe begin to start to unwind and let go. As it leaves, it may create interesting sensations in your body like tingling, warrant their deep peace. Whatever happens, keep your focus on what's taking place. Don't wallow in the emotion, but stay with it until it's gone. Okay, that's Ed, it's very easy. All you have to do is relaxed peer tangent and I'll do the rest. Okay, let's go to the meditation now and be curious about creating deep and lasting peace. 21. Demo - Copy and Rename Lecture: Hello and welcome to the demonstration entitled copying and renaming the lecture video. Okay, so here we are in iMovie, and this is a lecture video that we just finished creating. And so now it's time to create our first meditation video. And so here's what we're gonna do. We're gonna start off by going back into projects. And you know, you can see that lecture when it's right here, that's the one we've just completed. And so instead of building our new meditation from scratch, we can take a few shortcuts. And so what we're gonna do is to go into lecture one and a little three dots there. Click on that. And you're gonna see duplicate project. So we're going to duplicate it. There you go, and there it is. Lecture one, the second one. And so we're going to rename this. We're gonna go down, hit rename product. And we're gonna call it meditation. Everyday. Meditation once we're gonna open that. So right now it's just a copy of the lecture video. And so it has the same intro and outro down here. So that's good. So we'll have to make those over and that's pretty much all there is to it. So now we're ready to begin constructing our meditation video. So let's move on to the next lecture and see how to do that. 22. Demo - Adding Base Audio: Hello and welcome to the demonstration entitled adding base audio. Okay, so here we are in meditation one, that's the title of this video, but everything in here is from lecture one. And so we're going to want to get rid of everything because we don't want our meditation. So we're just going to highlight each clip by clicking on it and deleting. There we go. Okay, so that's all gone now. And so here we have our intros and outros now in a meditation video, i don't use an outro music or an outro picture because what I do is I just feed it at the end for about 90 seconds so my listeners can continue to meditate to the variance. So I'm just going to delete my outros also. Okay. Now we got down to the bare bones with our intro. And then what I'm gonna do is I'm gonna go into my external hard drive. Go into our course. We have our base audios and videos, and here's the audio I created in part one of this course for our meditation. So I'm going to click on that and drag it in here. There we go. So that is our base audio of memory or listen to. It's yeah, it sounds like a deep breath. Okay. So I'm going to just be boosted a little, enhance my voice and listen to it again and on. Relaxing. Okay, that sounds pretty good. So that's all there is to it. That's how you add your base ideal. And then we'll move on to the next lecture. I'll see you there. 23. Demo - Replacing Lecture Title: Hello and welcome to the demonstration entitled group placing the lecture title. Okay, so here we are in iMovie or in meditation one, our new video or recreating with putting the audio. And we have our interests here. And as we click on our intro here, we'll see that up in this corner. It says lecture one, but we want it to say meditation one. So we need to replace that. So we're gonna do, we're going to go into our external hard drive, our course. And then we're gonna go into screen. And as you remember, we made a lecture title already solved. We need to do is to open it up. We want to open note the one that is in pages. So that's this one right here. We'll open it up. And we're simply going to type in meditation. I'm just gonna save it. And then what we're gonna do is we're going to export it. Remember, to export these things. We're going to export it as a PDF file. And then we're going to find it in our external hard drive. And there's our screens. And it's already titled lecture title. So we're going to export it. And it's going to replace the one that we had there previously. So we're just gonna go replace. And there it is. Now, one thing I learned with iMovie awhile ago is that we don't have to make another JPEG file. We can just use our PDF file and it will replace the JPEG. So all you have to do is find our PDF file. This is lecture title right there. That's our PDF document. And we're just going to drop it in there. And there's a little green plus and that's going to replace it when we put it in there, get replaced. And now it says meditation one and we're good to go. So that's all there is to it. We're gonna do one more thing. We're going to click on it. We're going to go up into our crop. And so we're not going to use the Ken Burns on this one. We're just going to fit it in there. And there we are. That's all there is to it. We just take our new PDF file and drop it in there to replace our lecture title screen. Okay, let's move on to the next lecture. 24. Demo - Adding Music: Hello and welcome to the demonstration entitled adding music. So we've already added music to our intros and outros, so I know how to do that. This is also a very simple drag and drop process to add our meditation music. And so if we go up into audio in iMovie, click on that and we'll see if we go to music, the solicitor music in our computer or free go to sound effects. We can use the music that's already an iMovie, or would I like to do is I go into my personal files and I just find the music I liked there. So the music I'm going to add is called fathoms. It's from a guy named Richard Tyler and actually bought the license for this and got permission. So this is a commercial music, and I'm gonna put it right in there below my other audio there. So we're just gonna play it for sexy. That sounds okay, so I can tell already that it's a little loud, so I'm going to hit the volume, adjust your move it down about 10%. If you've ever dropped a pebble. Okay, that sounds pretty good. So I'm going to zoom out a little and I'm going to go down to the end of my, my audio here for the meditation. Okay, so that's where it ends right there. And then I'm going to crop my music. It's way too long. So it's about 90 seconds longer. And the end of my meditation K. So the meditation ends here at 1053. So I'm going to let it run to about 1130. And then I'm going to feed it have IT feed in for about 15 seconds. They're so okay. So that's all there is to it. So that at the end of our meditation and there'll be more to meditation music at the end so people can meditate and then musical gently fade out. That will be the end of the music. Okay, so that's it for adding music. Let's go on to our next lecture. 25. Demo - Adding an Image: Hello and welcome to the demonstration titled adding an image. So adding an image to our entire meditation is going to be similar to our intro and outro images that we added. So it's a simple drag and drop process. So we're gonna go into our external hard drive first, our course where we're at photos and video clips. And here we have one called nature, and that's one I downloaded free off the internet. So we're just going to highlight that one and into our project and drop it right there. So there it is. So now I'm going to extend my photo. So it extends all the way out to the end of my music rate tore, my music starts to fade, so I'm just going to stretch it out here. Check it out all the way to the end to our metaphysics starts to fade. Okay, and so to end my video, what I'm going to do is I'm going to paste my little outro image right here. So I'm gonna do first, I'm gonna put a transition in rate at the end here. We'll make it 1.5 seconds. And then we're gonna go all the way to the beginning. I'm going to highlight the title of our course, it command C. And paste it at the end by hitting Command V. And there we go. And then I'm going to shorten this just to touch our blank space, just so it comes to the beginning of our fading. And that'll be the last thing they see on the meditation ends. So okay, so that's how you add an image. I only use one image per meditation because my listeners will have their eyes closed so they can meditate in silence until the very head. Ok. And what I'd like to do next to our image before we finish it off, is that when I click on it here, and I'm going to go up to the fate. I'm going to fade it in and out 1.5 seconds. We can see what it looks like at the beginning. And then I'm going to add a title also for the entire chord or for the entire lecture. So I'm using white gradient. It's going to put it down here. And we're going to type in the title, Meditation 11. We're going to copy that. And then we're gonna go into text, edit, paste it there, and make sure that spelling is correct. It is. And then we're going to go into we'll call it our text, edit again. Paste it, and make sure the spelling is correct and it's all good. And then we're going to stretch are titled to build all the way out to the end of the image. And then there you go. So let's see what it looks like. Hello and welcome to the medication and excellent. Ok. That's others too. Let's keep moving. 26. Demo - Exporting a Meditation Video: Hello and welcome to the demonstration on exporting and meditation video. Now this is going to be exactly the same as exporting a lecture video, but this is so important that it's worth revealing. So let's go through this again. So here we have our completed meditation video. We're gonna go up to file. And I'm gonna share it to a file. And make sure all of these are correct. So it's meditation one. We've got the title right? It's going to be a movie. You can put any tagging anyone, any keyword. Format is video and audio. It's 720 P. Not lower than that. Higher than that because it'd be too large. Quality is high, compression is faster and receipts 11 minutes and 40 seconds, and it's 1.37 gigabytes. So we can't take it much bigger than that because the maximum file size allowed it to data bytes. But we're still under that swirled K. And we're going to next. And we're gonna find our external hard drive. In our course. We are going into complete media. And then we're gonna save it. And we'll see up here in the red are the little white circle in the upper right-hand corner. That's going to tell us about how long it's gonna take and this one's going to take quite a while. So we're just going to have to wait and let it do its thing. Okay, we can see that I'm movie has completed its task of saving our file. So let's go into our external hard drive and make sure it's there. And our course completed videos. Then there it is. Meditation when? Okay, that's it for this lecture. Let's keep moving to the next one. I'll see you there. 27. Example of a Finished Meditation: Hello and welcome to the meditation on the curious mind. What I would like you to do before we begin is to get yourself seated in a comfortable position. Close your eyes, take a deep breath and will start to relax. Now what I would like you to do before we get started is to locate the emotion of interests that you would like to release in this meditation. Just pay attention for a moment and feel it in your body. Notice where it is and if you could put a word or two on that feeling, what would you call it? Okay. Just go ahead and allow that feeling to release. You can forget about it for just a moment. And then we'll again our meditation. So go ahead and take a deep breath and relax. And we'll get started. If you've ever dropped a pebble into a serene, calm pool of water, then you've learned something about how to let go. It's very relaxing to watch the ripples slowly move out. As the pebble floats effortlessly to the bottom of the pool, drifting, floating, and coming effortlessly to arrest. And I don't know, but I do know that everyone has a place they can go a relaxing space deep down inside where they can really let go of all that they're cares. And all of their concerns. And wonder. At the wonder of those waves have relaxation. At the smooth heaviness of arms and legs. As relaxation continues. Maybe it was the warm smoothness of the soft white sand. You could hold it in your hand and watch it flow effortlessly through your fingers. The same sand that flows through an hourglass. Hour after hour after hour, with nothing to do for awhile except let go and flow. Warm. Heavy sand. While you are listening to those waves of relaxation. Secure inside and out. While you were sitting there. For getting to make the effort it takes to even try to be aware of when or where that relaxation began. And the soothing sounds or sensations were. And as you continue to breathe and to relax. I'd like you to feel the emotions that we talked about earlier. Inside and maybe even outside of your body. Allow your attention to gently rest and focus on those feeling without judgment, without analysis and without criticism. And if the feelings come up readily, just pretend that you can feel them. And if distracting thoughts come up, just let them drip through. Like clouds floating by in the sky. Now bring your awareness back to your emotions of interest. And simply pay attention. As you, the variance, those feelings. Be curious. Say to yourself something like, oh, isn't that interesting? I'm feeling that emotion. Wherever you're feeling it in your body. How curious. How curious, fascinating. And as you focus on that experience, you'll begin to feel a weakening, a softening, or letting go of the feeling. It may begin and then to swirl or to move out of your body. It may start to dissolve or let go. Or it may create interesting sensations like tingling, warped, or very deep peace. But whatever happens, keep your focus on what place. Don't wallow in the emotion, but relax and stay with it until it's gone. So stay with these experience for a few moments in silence. And you don't have to do anything except relax and allow your curious mind to do all the work for you. As you continue to breathe and to relax and to enjoy your experience. I'd like to remind you that any healing or release that has taken place today is permanent and goes with you from this day forward to improve and to enhance every aspect of your life. So go ahead and take another deep breath and relax. And when you are ready, and there's absolutely no hurry. But when you feel like you're done and you feel like you've had enough. You can slowly open your eyes. In generally, drift back in to the conscious world. 28. Uploading Videos: Hello and welcome to the lecture titled uploading videos. Congratulations, you've completed your course. However, we're not quite done yet. In order for your future students to watch your videos, you need to upload them on your educational website. Once you've hit the Create New Course button, it's very easy and straightforward process. However, one thing you will notice and something that caught me off guard and surprised in the beginning is that uploading videos takes a long time. Some of my courses have taken six hours or longer to upload. One thing you can do is upload all your courses at the same time and just let your computer run all night. However, you must have a strong Internet connection. If you lose your connection in the middle of the night and you have to upload your videos from the point where you lost connection. Another option is to create one video at a time and upload it as soon as you finish it. That way it's more like building a cathedral one brick at a time. Okay, that's it for uploading videos. Just follow the directions on your educational website and you'll be fine. 29. Course Description: Hello and welcome to the lecture titled Course description. The course description is the text potential students will read before they decide to take your course. You want it to be well-written and compelling. And of course you want to sprinkle in keywords that we discussed in the lecture. Choosing a title in part one. To keep things simple, I use a text that I wrote for the promo video. The only information I admit is the part about myself that will go into your bio, which we'll discuss in another lecture. So here's what you want to include. First, in the opening paragraph, introduced the course and what your students can expect. Then state the benefits they will receive by taking your course. Then briefly describe an ideal student or any prerequisites. And of course, add a personal note and a call to action, invite them to enroll in your course. And don't forget to add testimonials at the end. For an example of a course description, check out the competition, or take a look at the one I included in the course transcripts. Okay, that's it for course description. I'll see you in the next lecture. 30. Choosing a Course Image: Hello and welcome to the lecture titled Choosing a coarse image. Your course image is the first visual potential students will see when they look at your course. It needs to be catchy and project the message you want your course to portray. Remember, a picture paints a thousand words. Earlier in this course, we discussed how to find images on the internet for intro and outro images. For your course image used that same image only without text. It will keep your brand for the entire course consistent. Ok. Hello, I just want to give a little demonstration how to add your course image to skill share. So here we have an introduction. So I've uploaded it onto skill share. And what people are going to see when I'm looking for my course is a picture of my face. So that's not what I want them to see. I want them to see something that's a little prettier than me. So I'm gonna go to this little box right here. And that should say replace cover image. So I'm going to click on that. And up comes my Finder. And so I'm going to click on my external hard drive, our course. And we're gonna go with screens. And here we have our course image. We open that. And of course the image will be there and that's what people will see when they look for our course. So there's nothing to it. That's really easy to do, but it was kind of tricky. It took me a while to find that out. Okay, let's keep moving and I'll see you next lecture. 31. Instructor Bio: Hello and welcome to the lecture titled instructor bio. This is the part of the show where you get to brag about yourself in writing. So be bold. Here are some points to consider in your instructor bio. First off, a standard instructor buyout will usually have 300 words or less. Made sure to list your experience in irrelevant list of accomplishments or awards, Azure education. And very important at some interesting personal tidbits about yourself. People love that kind of stuff and be personable, and have some fun, more passionate and interesting, the better. And don't forget to add the best photo you have of yourself. Again, remember, a picture paints a thousand words and let someone else that you trust pick your bio photo. It's very difficult to be objective about yourself and someone else can be much better at that. So feel free to take a look at the course transcripts. I have a copy of my bio there. Okay, that's it for the instructor bio. I'll see you at the next lecture. 32. Review and Submit: Hello and welcome to the lecture titled review and submit. Okay, you think of course has finished. You're excited, you're nervous, and you think you're ready. But wait, you need to give it one more review. So peruse your course one last time. Make sure the videos are in order and loaded in the right place. Read your course description and your bio one more time to check for errors and look over your welcome messages one more time. Then we think you're ready. Take a deep breath and hit the submit button. After that, there's nothing you can do except wait to see if your course is accepted. If it isn't, simply fix the suggestions given to you by the review personnel. Hopefully, the corrections will only be minor. Then hit the submit button one more time. Congratulations. You are now an online instructor. I'll see you next lecture. 33. Clearing Out iMovie: Hello and welcome to the demonstration on clearing out iMovie. So when I started making videos awhile ago, I was working on my computer, went down at my desk was full and I couldn't save anything else on that computer and I didn't know why that was. And it took me a while to figure out. It's because I had so much information on iMovie that takes up a lot of space and I didn't know it was there and it didn't declare it out. So if your disk space on your computer gets really, you want to clean out 9D movie, okay, so here's how you clean out iMovie. So up in this column here you'll see we have our movie library and underneath it are events. And in those events such as meditation one here, there'll be video clips, photos, and music. And so as we need to do is to highlight meditation one, hit control. Click, and then we can just delete that event. And so when you make a lot of courses are going to be many events in this whole area in here is just going to be loaded with stuff. And so he just wanted to go through and delete these events one at a time and that'll clear up a lot of room on your computer. Okay, that's it. Let's move on to the next lecture. 34. Certificates: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled certificates. If you want to add extra value to your courses, offer certificates. Students loved them. However, make sure your courses are worthy of the certificates you're offering. Here are some things to consider when offering certificates. First, make sure your students are learning a specific series of something they can use or teach later on. For example, you may teach a certain series of kundalini meditation that are specific for yoga instructors. Or perhaps you could offer a series of specific meditation techniques for psychologists to help their clients released deep trauma. Be creative, the possibilities are endless. Another approach is to structure your courses so that your graduates can take their new skills and make money in some fashion. For example, in my clinical hypnotherapy certification courses, my graduates can take their new meditation skills and apply them to paying clients. And of course, offer a professional looking certificate with your name, date, logo, and a little extra specific information. Don't just offer a certificate of completion. Also search the competition and look for courses that are selling well, that offer certificates. That will give you some ideas. Okay, that's it for the brief discussion on certificates. Let's go to the next lecture. I'll see you there. 35. Respond to Your Students: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled respond to your students. As students start to enroll in your courses, you'll get questions, comments, and responses to your assignments. This is great news because the students enjoy your course so much they feel obliged to respond. Don't miss this golden opportunity to grow a following and make new friends by engaging with your students. And from my experience, the more in-person the context seems, the better. Don't respond with canned answers or phrases. Make it personal. Also remember that when you respond to your students, it will end up on a public discussion board. Other students will be able to see the engagement. If it's positive, meaningful, and upbeat, your interaction will start to create a credibility buzz. So be sure to respond your students within 48 hours. Nothing can Dead. And of course, more quickly than if it has the appearance that no one is home. Okay, that's it for respond. Your students get excited. These are your people. I'll see you at the next lecture. 36. Announcements & Promotions : Hello and welcome to the lecture titled announcements and promotions. Sending educational announcements and promotional opportunities are a great way to continue engagement and connection with your students. Educational announcements give your students extra little tidbits of information that may be above and beyond what's offered in your course. It keeps a connection fresh and their interest up. My announcements commonly contain a link to videos on a specific topic of interest. Sometimes I create the videos. Sometimes I send my students to someone else's videos. I also make sure that the videos are brief. And of course there is no selling or advertising. Promotional announcements are also great. It gives your students the opportunity to check out new courses and get deals on existing ones. Makes sure to contact your existing students first. After all, they've already purchased a course and may be eager for what you have to offer next. So please check out the course transcript for a couple of announcements that I've sent out. That'll give you some ideas. Okay, that's it for this lecture. I'll see the next one. 37. Getting Your First Testimonials: Hello and welcome to the lecture titled Getting Your first testimonials. Testimonials are a necessary ingredient in creating a successful online course. I've heard them referred to as trust ammonium. That's because people are going to trust your testimonials before they buy your course. Okay, shall we start with the good news or the bad news first in regard to getting your first testimonials. Let's start with the bad news first and get that other way. To get your first testimonials, you're going to have to throw your pride and your ego out the window. That's because you're going to have to become a beggar. And the best people to beg from or your friends and your family. So send them all a free course coupon and beg them not only for a 5-star review, but also for a written, glowing testimonial. Now for the good news, you're only going to need about three to five testimonials. And once you have those, that will set the foundation for future sales, you can plaster them all over your course description on your website and your newsletters or anywhere else you see fit. Okay, so much for getting your free testimonials. Let's go to the next lecture and I'll see you there. 38. The Snowball Effect: Hello and welcome to the lecture entitled the snowball effect. Okay, you've created a course or two. Students are starting to buy them and you're feeling pretty good. Now it's time to make some money. But in order to do so, you'll need to employ the snowball effect. So what is the snowball effect? Well, it's kinda like compound interest in a bank. That means you'll need to keep making courses. Let's face it. No matter how great your first course or two is, it most likely won't be enough to put biscuits on the table. However, if you have ten or more courses, you may start to see something worthwhile. The snowball we'll be rolling and starting to gather some momentum. So how many courses we need to make? Well, from my experience, you'll probably have to crank out eight or more courses a year for two years before you can evaluate the failure or success of your efforts. And that's a lot of effort to put into the unknown. But if it's what you're born to do than you'll do it with passion. On the plus side, you won't have to work for anyone else. And new opportunities may present themselves as you work along. New platforms may pop up where you may meet people from different parts of the world who want to collaborate. When you work on the Internet, almost anything is possible. It's creative work. And if you're doing what you love, it won't be boring. So I encourage you to be brave. Take a chance and go out and make your life happen. Okay, that's it for the snowball effect. Let's go finish off the course. I'll see you there. 39.
