Gain the technical confidence you need to help create your first online course

Spread over 8 Mini Courses for easy access

Creating an online course is exciting.  You have the knowledge, you’ve worked out the content and you’re keen to get started, but you have questions...

  • Which equipment do you need?
  • How do you record your screen?
  • What would make your audio sound better?
  • How to create professional handout, a worksheet or a workbook.
  • How do you edit you video files (without it costing the earth)?
  • How can you add a halo to your cursor for screen recording?

The answers to these questions and many more are set out over 8 mini courses.  With this knowledge in place, you can focus your attention on creating great content rather than spending hours trawling YouTube to try and find out the answers to your technical questions.

Reality check

Have you ever searched for a video tutorial on how to light your online course and found someone in a recording studio blabbing on about soft box lighting, boom mics, digital SLR cameras and massive greenscreens in the background?

What other courses are recommending!

Well, if you’re like me, this type of set up just isn’t an option.  Most people create their online courses from their home.  Maybe in the spare room, on the dining room table or a special corner of the living room which hides the dog bed by angling the camera in a different position.  

The reality of creating online courses

I’ve been creating online courses since 2015 and wanted to create a technical course that focused on first time course creators who want decent quality but maybe not the expense of a recording studio!

Over 8 mini courses, we’ll cover all the foundational technical knowledge you’ll need to get started creating your online course with confidence.  PLUS... look out for the bonus in the last course too where you can send me some of your content for 121 feedback before you commit to a full course!

“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.”
