About This Class

As i'm fine tuning as i go and before i start rapidly putting out the courses with the new framework i thought i would share with you (as i know later on someone will ask!) the process i currently work to when i make a new course.

i find these quicker courses work great this way and while i can use this for bigger courses on different platforms with some tweaking this really only works for short courses because i tend to record in one take instead of recording clip by clip (which i was doing before but it never really suited me)

so then, in this quick course i'll through. .

  • the process/steps i follow to make the content
  • using trello to put together my notes before recording
  • using apple keynote to make the slides
  • recording everything with screenflow
  • editing the edited content from imovie
  • using canva to make templates for cover thumbnails

maybe this will help you find your 'routine' and a better way to be putting together your courses. i know that time is always the main factor of why something does not get done so i try and give you an overview how i break the task into pieces that i can pick up at the various different stages.

hope you like it! :)

------ my backstory ------

currently saving to buy a laser cutter for co-working and co-creation pod called apiary and get mobile driving a vw t5 transporter across the uk and europe

sold my domain name to evan williams from twitter (they were building medium) for five figures. a great year!

assisted a town called ‘phil campbell’ in alabama (bbc news) which was a life changing event for me in terms of what i wanted to do with the rest of my life

helped lifecast from sleepydog get into the first apple app store to be part of the first 500 apps ever launched worldwide – proud social media moment.

bought a domain, (me-d-em) and ever since I’ve bartered my time as a transmedia digital artist in the social media realm. a brand advocate for word of mouth agencies from behind the lens of a mobile phone or camera.

during regularly drinking sessions at the abbey in burton on Trent I ended up on the team time episode of history hunters which is now unfortunately on youtube
