I found the content really useful and it served as a reminder for some of the things I used to do for in person delivery plus some new ideas that apply to in person and virtual.

I've been thinking about this since my great pandemic shift from face to face to Zoom. It's my next big shift. But I've never taken an online course before! It's a great short, snappy intro to essential pre-writing research - plus an experience how an online course might look and feel to the new-to-online learner. I hope I can go round again as I need to repeat and review to learn. Thankyou for an excellent free course. It will help me take the next step out of my ever expanding comfort zone.Read Less
Really good course, in simple easy-to-understand steps. Nikie was very clear and concise and it did not feel like a hard sell at the end.

“Nikie’s help, support and organisational skills made it so easy for me to get my first course up and running. I loved her tutorials and feedback and I have gone on to launch a further 3 courses with her help. Nikie’s clear instruction makes it easy to create and launch a course. Thanks Nikie, I couldn’t have done it without you!”Barbara Cox - Award Winning Nutritionist - Global Wellness Council Representative
“Nikie has been such an amazing help to me to get my courses online. Not only does she explain in straightforward and understandable ways, she is also great in offering suggestions geared to the course. I definitely couldn’t have done this without her support.”Gill Donnell MBE. Founder and Manging Director of Successful Women Ltd.
“As someone, prior to launching her first course, who had totally no knowledge of how to create an eLearning course, Nikie has been invaluable. She has been responsive and clear every time I have reached out to ask another (sometimes very similar) question. This has given me confidence to know that someone with patience, understanding and ability to explain things in a non-techy language is readily available.”Anna Harrington SCPHN (OH) RN. Director & Clinical Lead. Wellbeing and Health in Business
“Working with Nikie has been seamless, as she has the ability to quickly understand how pieces of content (video, text, quizzes, workbooks, downloads) need to appear online, but she is also an expert in terms of knowing how the journey might feel like to the end consumer. This was vitally important for us as this was our first experience of e-building an online course. Nikie has the patience, tenacity, and expertise to help any business or person create online courses and not just from an IT/Design perspective, but she really takes the time to understand what the course outcomes should be and that was critical for us. Thanks again Nikie!”Helen, Director of The Young People Index®
