1. Selling on Skillshare: Ultimate Step-by-step Video Training: do you want to be able to sell your knowledge online and not having the mess up with all the technical aspects of setting up your own website and driving traffic? If your answer is a resounding yes, then I have great news for you in one word. Skill share skill share has over three billion students were active on the site. By teaching on skill share, you can easily tap into that ever expanding pool of eager students. You don't have to advertise your class. The platform is popular enough for students to find your class and enroll easily. If you're not using skill share yet, then you're missing out big time. I've created a step by step video Siri's that shows you how to sell your knowledge on skill share starting today. So if that interests you scroll down this page below toe, learn how I can help you 2. Overview: Hello, Welcome. You were looking at the website Skill share dot com and skill share. Dot com is a marketplace for skills and information taught directly by individuals. The platform is designed for short courses where an individual can learn one skill at a time. Courses are available to individuals on their desktop or their mobile device, and each course is designed for an individual to finish their learning by creating a project. Individuals that want to learn these skills can get unlimited access to all of the content by paying a monthly or annual price. They can also access their content and download it to their desktop in orderto watch on their own time skill shares. A learning platform is available to organizations as well as individuals by scholarship. What this means is that there are individuals interested in learning certain skills available to be taught by individuals with certain skills. These individuals make their knowledge available on skill share one course at a time. Now there is those screening process. When you're ready to start a class, all you'll need to do is to come to this skills your website and click this button that says Start a class and you can begin teaching now. According to the Scotia website, the average individual earns about $3000 in the calendar year for Clasing. Their content. One skill share. So this course we're going toe walk through the technical process of getting your course set up when skills share so that you can begin teaching individuals looking for the information that you have or can make available. Get the most recent updates, one skill share. All you need to do is to come to their home page, go to the teaching page and then go to the Blawg. And by reading their blawg, you begin to get a sense for what's happening, most recently with the site. Okay, it's with that Thanks and I will see you in the first video. 3. 2 Reasons To Consider Using Skillshare: welcome back. YouTube has long been known as the world's second biggest search engine after its parent company, Google. And what this has meant is that individuals have come to YouTube and they have created how to information in order for people to come to the site, search for a held to video and then learn how to do something a particular skill or a particular set of information. Now, in order to upload to YouTube, there was no particular standard to follow. Just had to make sure that your video met the YouTube community guidelines. Individuals kept analytics and revenue reports one all of the content that they created so they would know how well they're how to information was doing with those who are viewing it . Individuals were paid through Google's AdSense program, which awarded the funds to accumulate on a monthly basis. However, in early 2018 YouTube changed its partner program and it eliminated individuals that did not have a certain number of hours of watch time as well as subscribers. What that meant was individuals that were just getting started with their channel. We're not able to participate in generating revenue from YouTube, however, Many of the same kinds of courses can now be made available on skill share dot com, where you can make your videos available in order to teach a specific skill and be paid for that short course. And, as was mentioned earlier, the courses do not have to be long. In many cases, the courses can be as short as 10 minutes. In total link means that in cases where individuals feel is that they don't have enough knowledge to create, an entire course can participate in skill share if they have at least 10 minutes. So the next video we'll talk about the revenue opportunity available with skill share, given that you can produce short 10 minute courses. Okay, so what? That thanks and I will see you in another video. 4. How You Will Earn Revenue: Welcome back. Now in this video, we're going to talk about how you're going to earn revenue as a teacher on skill share, and you have to primary methods in which you are going to be paid. First, you're going to earn revenue through royalty payments, and this is going to be based on the number of minutes that students watch your courses over the course of a month. You'll also be paid for the number of premium referrals that you make. So when people signed up for a skill share and they choose to get a premium account, you will receive $10 for every sign up that comes through your referral link. So at the end of the month, skill share will calculate the number of minutes have been watched in your courses as well as a number of pearls, and you'll make, and then they'll pay you on the following 16th of the month. Now you will need to have pay, PAL set up inside of your account. That is the only methods currently that skill share has in order to pay you. Now, if you're a teacher outside of the U. S, you will need to go into your PayPal account, go into your profile in my money, and then make sure that you add in U. S. Dollars as a currency for you to receive. So you receive payments from skill share as a point of reference, and students watch your course and they're doing so without having paid for the course. You are not compensated for those minutes. So you want to think about that before you choose to offer a free access link to your course. You will have an opportunity when you get to the promotional section inside of your course creator. Now, month to month school share will contact certain instructors will allow them to participate in bonuses where they can earn additional revenue based on specific activities. You like to see what some of those activities have been in the past. Where you'll want to do is to go to the promotions area of the teacher questions, and you can look through some of the past options. Now one of the things you'll notice when you click inside of one of these promotional banners is that you'll need to have been contacted by skill share staff directly about the promotion before you can participate. Okay, so what? That thanks. And I will see you in another video 5. Minimum Equipment Needed: Hello and welcome. You are now looking at a page on amazon dot com, and there's a very simple search here for a USB mic, and this is typically the first thing that people begin to look for when they're considering doing, recording or doing teaching online. However, you can run into costs when you start down this path. And so in this video, what we want to do is wanna look at what are the minimum requirements for you to be able to start recording and creating classes for your skill share channel and keep costs down when you're getting started. Before you begin to earn income, you can start with a simple headset microphone, and if you have a stereo jacks inside of your PC or if you have USB, you can get the USB version. But typically you can get a headset where you have a noise canceling feature, and that will be good enough to get started. When you do that, you're going toe. Also, want to pick up a windscreen pack, and this will give you a little wind screen that you can put on the end of your USB or your headset that will help you to black out some of the noise. This is the equivalent of a pop screen when you are buying a USB microphone. Typically in newer laptops, you will not have two jacks, one for the mic and one for the headphones. You may have only one Jackman. Well, that's the case. You're going to want to use your USB port for your headset. You can do that with one of these adapters, where it will basically give you the opportunity to use your headset through your USB port . You are going to probably want some screen recording software. This will allow you to record but a power point and your screen. You can get that through tech. Smith and their software is called Camp Tasia Studio. Camped Ages studio does run into the hundreds of dollars, So if you're not quite sure as to whether or not you're going to be doing this and you haven't really purchased it already, you can purchase screen cast O Matic, which also has both recording and editing features and for a lower price. If you want to include yourself in your videos as an optional feature, you can have a webcam separate from the webcam that comes with your laptop computer. Now you are going to want to use one that does record in HD. And there is one such as the Logitech 9 30 where the resource is run inside of the camera and not inside of the computer. Therefore, it will not take up. Ah, lot of your memory now those of the elements that will get you started and ready to create your courses. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 6. Policies and Screening: Welcome back in this video. We want to talk about policies and screening and skill Share has a teacher handbook. And you should familiarize yourself with that handbook before you start teaching. We're going to go over a few highlights in that handbook. Now, in particular, the big picture of skill share is this that you're gonna foster learning for the sake of learning. You're not doing these courses for lead generation, and you're not doing them in order to enrich yourself. What you're really doing is we're imparting knowledge to them in an area that they have decided that they want to learn. We've talked about the fact that each of your courses is going to be created with a class project will be talking about that in the content creation video. One thing that you want to be aware of is that you cannot publish a course on skill share that's gonna be free elsewhere. That doesn't mean that you cannot use other platforms. You just want to make sure that any place where your courses that video is not available so you don't wanna have it available on YouTube as well a skill share and turns a student contact skills share is stating that they would like student contact to take place through the discussion section and not by email. So you don't want to use your private email to contact students. You want to keep all of your conversation on the skill share platform. Now they're pretty clear on the fact that again these courses should not be so promotional . Nor should they be how to get rich schemes, as they call them. What they're also stating is that they don't just want a walk through of a platform. If you like for you to make sure that you have added value to what you're actually teaching people, when you're going to be talking about a particular platform and again, what they don't want you to do is to show people how to resell existing products, such as drop shipping or multi level marketing. Neither one of these courses are going to be allowed, and when it comes to marketing and promoting yourself, they want that to happen in the intro or outro video. You don't want that in the entire course, and to take a step back score share does not want you to promise your students a specific outcome again. What? You're trying to confer our skills. You're not trying to convert something that they've got to pay for or they're going to want a refund. You're going to see several sections in their community guidelines as well as their entire policy book about self promotion. It really means that they're pretty serious about you wanting to keep all of your activity on the skill share site and really using the platform for what it is. And that is to help people to gain skills. Now, we just reviewed some key highlights. When you are in the skill share platform, there is the handbook, and you can read it from this link and you'll be able to get a sense for everything that skill shares looking for and everything that they don't want. Okay, so what? That thanks. And I will see you in another video 7. SkillshareAccount Set Up: Hello and welcome. Now this video, we're going to walk through the process of setting up your account. And to do that, we're going to click, become a teacher. Then we're going to scroll all the way to the bottom. We're going to click, start a class. We're then going to sign in with our user name and password. You can use Facebook or Google if you prefer, but once you're on the inside, you want to pick your class category. Then you'll be asked what your primary goals are now. School share will bring you directly to the course creation facility. However, we're going to first start by going to the profile area. We're going to click the profile, and they were going to click, view, profile. Once we do that, we're then going to click Edit profile. So the first we have latitude where we can change our profile image. Weaken right information in about who we are. We can write in our social media accounts as well as one personal website. We're also going to be asked to include a section for skills. A witch, you'll notice, is that you have your social buttons at the bottom of your profile once you have filled them all, when these air all clickable links as is the link to your website. So all of this will be important, as you don't have a lot of promotional opportunities. But you will have individuals that will be curious about your profile, and they will be looking to these lengths. You want to make sure that they are lined up. Now you have another opportunity within your profile to showcase your skills. And when you quick this at a project button, what you can do is you can add content that will be representative off who you are and what it is you do now. You can add images, you can add videos and you can add links. Now, once again, you want to be careful that this content is not going to be promotional but that it is going to be representative of your projects. And what you can do is you can make this project private so that other individuals will not be able to see it by default. You can only show it to those individuals that you want to see it again. You have a lot of flexibility when it comes to creating this part of your profile. Now, there are some account settings that you want to be aware of. For example, if you go to this account settings button and you go to the link, you are going to see that you're going to be able to set your user name can also connect your account to Facebook and Twitter, and this will allow you to post your updates. I want to your timeline. So what you're going to do here is you're going to click connect, and then you're going to do it again for Twitter and that people cannot find it on the Web . Maybe you want to use or you want to teach this and you don't want everyone to know that you're doing this one school share. You can make your profile private. You can do all of this and hide it from the Web by default. It does show on the Web results by default. Your profile is public, so we're going to do here is we're gonna click save changes. You also want to look to your email notification section. You get to the email notification section. You can determine which of the emails you're going to receive and which ones you are not. Generally, if you're going to be engaged in your course and you want to keep up and you really want to make a go of it, one skill share going to start out with all of these e mails made available, and then over time you can come back to your profile. You can determine which ones are overloading you, and then you can determine which ones that you're going to tick off. They're two things when it comes to payments, their payments that you're going to making to skill share. And this is going to be with respect to your being subscribed. As a student, you could add a payment method here. You're also going to want to have a payment account for you to be paid, and that's going to be a connection to your PayPal account. And once you filled in your requirements, your profile is then ready for you to begin teaching classes. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video 8. Creating A Course Outline: Welcome back. Now in this video, we're going to start working on our course outline and you'll notice that we're using Google slides. Now. If you use Microsoft Power Point, that's going to be pretty much the same thing. If you want to import your Power point presentation into Google slides, perhaps you're going to have someone proof. Read it or you're going to work on it with someone. You can do that by importing that presentation into Google, so we're going to start a new presentation, and then we're going to give this presentation a title. But one of the ways before you think about how you're going to design the course of how you wanted to appear is to think about the content and what you actually want to teach someone , and you want to start by taking each of the individual steps and then creating at least one slide were all of those steps. So in this case, we're going to create several slides, and each of those lies will represent either one step or one video. What you want to do is you want to create one video for your introduction. No. One for the conclusion And then, if you're gonna have sections in your course, you're going to want to have at least one video introducing the section. So you think about your content. You're going to want to think about how many sections is your content going to be? You should have one slide explaining that section and then one slide, explaining each step within the section. So what we've done is we put in our introduction slide, but in our conclusion slide. So once we've outlined the course, we could determine then that each slides went to represent one video. So now what we want to do is we want to go back. So we want to do is want to go back. I want to write in a narration script that will also double as a power point slides. And basically what we're trying to do is we're trying to write in to the slide enough information to given individual something look at without writing everything that we're going to talk about during our presentation. Where you want to try to do in skill share is you want to try to communicate one specific skill and idea. You can always go back and you can break up your course into several ideas. But you're trying to teach one concept for people to be able to do one thing, and so when you may want to do at this point is, you may want to narrowing at least one slide. Then you'll be able to tell exactly how long your course is going to be and whether or not you're going to need to bring it up into several pieces. Or, if you have one, that's going to be about the right length. And now, once you have all of the slides that you're going to be doing what you have your outline, you can either narrate it or you can talk between the point while the Power Point scrolls in either case. But But you want to use the outline, communicating all of the information that you want to get across concisely. But you also want to think about is that all of these lessons should lead to your students being able to put something together to do something that they can either display or that they can put together and post on to the site. In this case, they're probably several instances where an individual can actually take the content that you're looking at and then turn it into some kind of projects will be designing that project in the course creation video. Now, if you want to redesign the look and you don't want to just use playing black and white and you want to do something that's going to be a consistent brand, you could do that. But the very first thing you want to be concerned about is the content. That's what we've done in this video. Okay, so where that thanks and I will see you in another video. 9. Creating Course Content: Welcome back. You were looking at the over you slide that we created in a previous video, And one of the ways that you can create your course content is that you can scroll through your Power Point presentation and then you can give discussion between each of the points. And so basically, what you're going to do is you're going to scroll through your power point. You'll stop and then do some explanation. You'll move on to the next step, and as you continue to do this, you will complete your slides in a particular period of time. It's recommended that again you stick to breaking up your content into videos based on subjects as you talk through each subject. What you're going to do is you're going to complete the thought on each point. Another way to record the video is to discuss what people are seeing on your screen. As you have seen in previous videos, you can demonstrate what's happening on your screen and in giving your viewer the opportunity to experience what they should be doing. And when you're teaching and your screen casting a Web page, one of the things that you can do is, you can use the F 11 button to hide the address bar. So in this case, if we click, 11 are address bar will disappear. If we click 11 again, our address bar will come back when we're demonstrating in full screen mode. If we need to switch between tabs, all will need to do is to click the control button, and then we'll need to click the tab button that'll move over one tab where we don't have to stop the video in order to continue recording. Another way to do videos is to do a talking head video where you have the camera trained on you as the one we're viewing here in this section, and you were looking at the camera, you were explaining a concept, and you can also have captions inside of your video. Of course, you can also do a demonstration style video where basically, you are showing a concept. You have your camera trained on the concept you are doing, and then you are speaking through your outline are you can combine certain elements into videos. If you have some kind of video editing software, you're looking at a previous version of Camp Tasia studio and you'll see a timeline. And we're going to do this in a separate video. It's important to show you here because you can see the timeline. All we would need to do is to add the different pieces of the video into the timeline. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 10. Recording Your Course: Welcome back. You are now looking at screen Cast O Matic and you'll see here that screen cast O Matic has the ability for you to be able to do Bill talking head videos and you'll see that you can use your webcam or your screen, and you can do them both together where you'll have your screen being recorded and a piece of your Webcam video in the video that you're producing. And, of course, Camped Asia Studio has the very same effect. Now when you're producing a Webcam video, one of the things you're going to want to decide is the resolution of the video. So, for example, we're going to look at the tool in Camped Asia, where will take a look at recording our camera? We get to that screen. That's the one that you're looking at. We're going to click format, and when you look at the format, you're going to see that there's an output size and you can determine what the output size is going to be. And you're going to want to think about this when you are producing the video that you want to produce a talking head video where you're taking up the entire screen with your background. You can do that. However, you're going to want to make sure that the resolution is going to be something like 12 80 by 7 20 Now, if you decide that you're going to just place your Webcam video inside of your presentation or your screen cast, you'll want to leave the default settings where they are. And they're going to be about 6 40 by 3 60 When that's the case, you can leave your resolution at that point, and then you can apply it as is in this case, the webcam is being covered for the sake of this video, However, this is how it would actually work if you were going to either edit or do a talking head video inside of Camp Tasia on the point of showing you. This is so that you'll know that by having camped Asia or screen cast O Matic, you have just about everything you need in order to record all the videos that you'll need in order to do something in screen chair. Obviously, if you're going to want to do a demonstration video, you're going to want to use a camera of some kind. Now, when you're recording Power Point, you want to make sure that the aspect ratio of your recording is going to be correct. And you can do that in your screen by going to the design tab and then going to your slide side. And you want to make sure that you're using the widescreen or 16 by nine recording view so that when you do your slide show it's going to appear in widescreen. This will mean that will have the right aspect is gonna show up right when you get ready to either edit the video where you produce the video and you get it ready for a skill share. Also the screen where you record your presentation or your screen cast matters, and it's going to be a lot easier for you to be able to create a high definition video if you use the right size screen. So if you're using a second screen and you're using a laptop screen, what you want to do is you want to try to find a screen and record on the screen that has the right aspect ratio. So, for example, you're going to want to use one that either have 1920 by 10 80 or one that has 12 80 by 7 20 both of which are here. And what that will do is that will give you the right aspect ratio. Of course, if you can record in the resolution at 1920 by 10 80 that's going to be the most conservative. And then you will always have a high definition video, even though that's slightly higher than required by skill share. Currently, another aspect of your recording is going to be a lot easier if you use two screens. And when you use two screens, here's what you're going to be able to do. You're going to be able to keep your script on one screen, and you're gonna be able to record on the other one, and you're going to be able to do that inside of your slideshow menu, and you're going to be able to open and use what's called Use the presenter view. You want to make sure that this is ticked in your slideshow menu. So in this case, what we can do is we can then turn on our slide presentation, and you'd have a full screen presentation while you discussed, so you can see the other view wanted to switch the display settings that we're going to swap out the other view now This is the presenter view, and this will be on your other screen. So while you're scrolling through, which you'll notice is that the next screen actually shows up and you will be able to see what's going to come up next on the West side, you'll see what you have. Currently on the right side is what's coming up so you'll be able to get a look at the next animation. In addition to having your notes here in this section so you can have the animation and the notes. You'll know what's coming up next, and then you'll be able to talk through your points. For the sake of this video, we're now going to switch back to the slideshow view, and you'd be able to use your recording as you scroll through now, in order to show different places in the presentation. There is a way to do that, and to do that, we're going to switch back to our interview, and if we needed to skip to the end to find a particular slide. What we would do is we would click this see all sides. Button would skip to the slide where we want to be. And then this is what would then appear on the screen where we're presenting. We went to go back to our place. We go back this see all slides, button, and then go to the place where we want to be. And again, if you're using your presenter view, this is going to be on your second screen. What's actually going to appear while you're recording is going to be what you're seeing here on the left side. So we're going to do now is we're going to switch back to our slideshow We're going to do now is we're going to go back to our screen and we're going to do that by clicking our show task bar button and then we'll be able to pick up our browser again. Okay, so what? That Thanks. And I will see you in another video 11. Editing Your Course Videos: Welcome back on this video. We're going to talk about editing our video and we're inside of Camp Tasia Studio. So if you have another editing program, you'll need to make sure that you understand how to use your editing program with the basic features we're going to be explaining here inside of Camp Tasia Studio. Now, one of the very first things you'll notice is at the very top in this button. You'll notice that this video is being ended it at the resolution of 12. 80 by 7 20 We like to then change that resolution if we can. And we like to change that resolution to the maximum resolution off 1920 by 10 80 if possible. On some cases, this will not be possible given how you recorded the video. However, we're going to seek to make this in larger size when we edit Now, the other thing that you're going to notice is that you have on this timeline you have the sound and video. Now this file has actually already been edited. So for the sake of this video we're going to do is we're going to delete the file and then we're going to re save the project. Now, when you are recording inside of Camp Tasia or screen cast O Matic, one of the first things you're going to do with your recording and your timeline is you're going to save the entire project as a new file so that all of the changes you make will be saved in sight of the project file. So that's we're going to do right now. We're going to go to file. We're going to save this project as a new project. So you'll see now at the very top. We've renamed this file as U. S. P. Number one and again this file is the one that we just record it and we now have inside of our project file. Some can't Asia in order the work with this file, we're then going toe add the file to our timeline, and what you're going to notice is that this filed looks totally different than the one that we just delete it, which was the completed file. Now what we need to do in order to edit this file is we need to listen to the entire recording and watch it in real time. Is so that not only will we be able to make changes to any mistakes that we might make will also be able to make quality changes that we feel differently about than we did when we actually did the speaking. One of the things you'll notice on this timeline is you'll see these three bars, and this is indicating that there were three loud sounds made during the courting, and we made those sounds so that we would be able to mark on the timeline when we needed to find a mistake and then correct it. So all of the places where you see these three bars, those are the times when we clapped loud enough so that we were close to the mic so that we would be able to create an effect on the audio timeline that we would be able to look at. And no, this is where we need to zero in on to find where our mistakes are. And so basically, what will need to do is if we're listening in real time, we'll be able to go to these locations, listen to it again and then edit out the mistakes now in Camp Tasia That's a simple matter of using the cursor and then the scissors. And then once again, we can go to this area. We would listen to it, of course, but we would then cut this part out and then we couldn't do it again. By cutting these parts out again. Once again, you'd want to listen to find out where your mistakes are. But you'd be listening for the mistakes that you noted during your actual recordings. So again, this is gonna be something you want to do while you're recording so as to make it easy. When you're doing the editing now, each step along the line, we'd like to then goto our file and then continue saving so that again, our file and all of the change that we're making will be saved in our project file. These changes will not affect the original recording. They'll only be effective inside of the project by our that we're creating. And again, you're gonna do the same thing. If you're using screen cast O Matic Once you've listened in real time, you ended it out All the mistakes you can then save your project file and then once you exit the project file. You were then ready to record a new video. Okay, so with that, thanks. And I will see you in another video. 12. Increasing Audio Quality In Your Video: Welcome back in this video. We're going to take a few steps to increase the quality of the audio in our video, and you're going to notice that the video that has been edited is one hour timeline, and you may notice that there is background noise in the recording that you want to have removed. And if you do that and what we can do is we can remove the background noise. Using a feature in Camp Tasia, you'll notice that there are a couple of features. First, there's an enable noise removal feature, removing clipping and clicks. There's also volume leveling. So the first thing we're going to do is we're going to take a look at noise removal, and basically what we want to do is we want to look at our audio file and when they find one or two seconds where we can hear the background noise and basically what we can do is we can take a portion of this video. We're going to stretch out our cursor, we're going to stretch it out, one the actual audio file, and then what we're going to do is we're going to go to our audio menu. I'm going to click enable noise removal and what that will do is that will take this portion of the background noise and it will remove it from the rest of the recording. So if you know that you have background noise in this area and you want to have it removed , all you need to do is to find a section of it highlighted, then click enable noise removal so that that background noise can be removed. But you can also do is you can remove any clipping or clicks that will remove additional background noise that may interfere with your message, and then the other thing that we can do is we can use volume leveling now. If you have a number of different parts of your video on, the volume is not consistent. What you can do is you can enable volume leveling what that will do, what the audio file is. It will make sure that there is a minimum amount of variation between the volume in different places, and what you can do is you can click enable audio leveling. You'll see that the file will different. It's a good idea to then listen to the file. Then you'll be able to tell if the volume leveling has actually done something for your according. Or if it hasn't, you can then disable it by unticketed the enable volume leveling box. Okay, so with that, thanks and I will see you in another video. 13. Annotating Your Course Video: welcome back skill share asked that you add value to any demonstration video that you do, and there are effects that you can create inside of any video editing program. So, for example, when you come to a certain point in the video and you need to make a point on screen in Camp Tasia, what you can do is call outs. You can draw arrows, and you can point to things and highlight them on screen. This is obviously not a camped Asian tutorial, however. You can use these effects to draw attention to things and then and value to your video by using call outs. Screen cast. A magic will have different effects, but what you want to do is you want to pick the points where you need to re emphasize something, and then you want to use the call outs to help you to do that. So it might be that you would decide that you want to highlight different aspects of the video. So, for example, we can come to a certain point in the video. We can decide that we want to highlight something here. We would use one of the call outs and All we would need to do is to drop the call out here and have it appear where we want it to be. So whatever video software you're using, you want to use the annotation effects toe add to your edited video so that it would do a better job of explaining then gesture demonstration or your power point video. Okay, it's with that. Thanks. And I will see you in another video. 14. Creating A Promotional Video: Welcome back. You're now looking at viable dot com.

We can continue to refresh the page in order to see and check on the status it's What we've done now is we've uploaded all of the videos to our video lessons. So while this process is happening, we want to click class info. I went to go ahead and write in our class title. Once we've given our class a title and description, we then want to move to the class project and we want to design a project based on the content that we have already placed in the course, and we want to give our students something tangible to do and something they can demonstrate and post to the course. Of course, if you have a file that you want to attach, you can do that. Or if you want to upload a photo, what you're going to do next is you're going to choose a category for the course.

And when you click this link that says Teach challenge, you'll be taken to an opportunity to join a course at the beginning of the month, where skill share representatives will be going over some of the basics of skill share and how you can be successful.

And one of the things that you want to take note of is that you want to do the very same thing in your course in order to engage students. Of course, your project is already there cause it's already created. Now, having looked at a course that we're taking, we now want to take a look at the course that we're teaching. Find a place to do. This is on the inside of your course, and you'll notice right down at the bottom. You'll see tabs that mirror the tabs that you have when you're taking a course. And within the community Tab is really the area where skill share would prefer that you have contact with your students. There are no email facilities because eggs here preference that you keep everything inside of this course. And in fact, of your students have chosen to do so, they will receive notification of this announcement when you make it inside of your course .

One skill share in your course is now published. You now have a referral link. You're now part of the new teacher program, and you are ready to begin promotion while you're involved in the new teacher course. There are things that you can do to the course by editing the course and then taking advantage of skill shares built in systems to promote your course. And, of course, one of the other things that you can do to increase your opportunities to generate income is to teach other courses. However, it's a good idea to be fully aware of promotional strategies so that people will find your course. And because part of your payment structure revolves around recruiting new individuals to come to the site and take on the premium account, this takes a different way of promoting the opportunity. While staying engaged through the community and through the class project are good things to do. You'll want to exercise the full range of promotional opportunities so that you can maximize your income with skill share. Okay, it's with that Thanks, and I'll see you either in another video or in another course
