They provide customers with a trusted voice and can help others make a decision about whether or not to buy a product or service. But in today’s world, a lot of people don’t always trust written reviews. So how do we overcome this?Read More
As a course creator, it’s all about providing the best possible content – after all that’s why people have paid or are looking at paying for your course. But creating content day after day can be difficult –writer’s block and analysis paralysis will throw anyone off track.Read More
The sign of a truly successful learning experience is when students can apply their knowledge to a new situation or under a different circumstance.
This concept, called Transfer of Learning, is key to enhancing student outcomes. We sat down with the team from Course Studio to chat about how they’re aiming to boost the application of course concepts with their new interactive workbook tool: Wobo.Read More
If you’ve spent 15 minutes answering questions to find out what kind of sandwich you are and which Friends cast member you are (even if you already have a strong hunch), you know the power of quizzes. When a potential student takes a quiz they are showing real interest in your topic and they enter your nurture sequence with data so you can tailor the content delivery of the sequence to them.
When done well, quizzes deliver high-quality leads that can convert to or engage students by, attracting attention to learn more about your topic & Provides an incentive to give an email address to get the answers.Read More
Social proof – you may have heard of it and you’ve definitely seen it in action. Social proof is essentially when people will copy the actions of others to undertake the same behaviour.

Your course needs to be visually appealing to attract students in the first place. Once they’re enrolled, you need to retain their interest and make sure they retain information you teach them. You do that through videos.
Studies over the years show that video improves our ability to remember concepts and details. Video makes things easier to recall. The human brain processes imagery 60,000 times faster than text.
As if that doesn’t confirm the need for your course to be in video format, video isn’t even something flashy. It’s the new normal. People expect to consume content as video.Read More

Recording day – it looks different for everyone but the basic preparation going on behind the scenes is usually pretty similar. Your first couple of times prepping for a recording day may not look great – you may forget things you need, spend hours re-recording due to messing up your lines, or simply take longer than you thought because you weren’t as confident once you got in front of the camera.
We took the time to put together a behind the scenes video on what a recording day looks like, and as you can see in our edited version – you wear a lot of different hats and switch from one task to the other.Read More
Ideally, your course is as dynamic as possible for all students and their preferences. Some students learn visually and would prefer video over transcripts and audio.
Or you can simply create video and repurpose it into audio and get mini blogs from the transcript.
It all starts with video. And in today’s marketing sphere when everyone’s on social media, attracting your ideal students can depend on how visually appealing your videos are.Read More
When you sit down to start creating your course, you quickly realise that there are a lot of creative assets that you’ll also need to factor in time to create. For many, these assets cover a wide range of areas including graphics, images, quotes, marketing assets, social media assets and more.
If you don’t have a design background, it’s very easy to get lost and overwhelmed when it comes to creating these assets, and it is all too easy to throw in the towel and get someone else to do it. That’s all well and good if you don’t have the time, but learning to create your own creative assets for your courses allows you to make quick changes on the fly, or design new courses for publishing without relying on someone else.Read More

When you’ve taken the time to create a course, it’s important to consider the marketing that you will do around your course – because if you don’t market it, how else will people know about it?
Good marketing includes great graphics, and while there are a range of free programs where you can create graphics, having a range of templates, effects, and editing tools in the one program makes the process a lot easier.Read More
Video is great for engaging the learning styles of visual and auditory students and a must when it comes to course creation.
