5 easy steps to create your course online (on remote) and do some cash … or just for Free ❤
Dedicated to the inspiring Certified Bikram Yoga Teacher Liliana Ghiani from Hot Yoga Sardegna
Hi everyone, so here a simple guidance on how to create your courses online and manage your community without too much technical record. I’ve tried to keep it as simple possible with a step by step article and some cool tips.
1 / Don’t Be Scared of Technology
Technology is created to make your life easier and as an expert in user experience, trust me that behind the scene, lot of people working day to day to create intuitive interfaces that you are using everyday in a seamless way. From Waze to Google, infinite are the examples of platforms and app that are simply here to help you. So don’t be afraid :) If Liliana did it, so everyone can do it!
And the cool news, that you can do it from your phone!
2 / Find a comfy room with enough space and light
We decided to transform the living room in a yoga studio since the light was perfect for that.
To place you in the right ambiance, so Liliana replaced even the picture in the background, added a beautiful orchid for the frame and the humidifier for the magical smoke effect. We’ve cleaned and organized the room in a way that it allows us to have a nice panoramic frame. This is a very important step for the beauty of the image / the scene.
When you feel ready, so position your phone on a stand or your laptop to vision the result :)
3 / Choose the App to Stream Live
There is many options here, but we decided to use the popular app called Zoom since it is working pretty well even for large audience. The program itself is Free to download and you can even use it for FREE but limited Live Session to 40 minutes only :/
In our case we needed 1 hour online course, so we upgraded to the Monthly subscription that cost $14.99/mo/host. Still we do recommend this application since overall very stable and easy to use.
Still this option requires from your audience to download the app but Zoom offers you great statistics and reports.
Download ZOOM App:
Video Conferencing, Web Conferencing, Webinars, Screen Sharing
Zoom is the leader in modern enterprise video communications, with an easy, reliable cloud platform for video and audio…
The second option that does not required from your audience to download any apps is Free and called Google Hangouts.
— — — — — Please find another option below — — — — —
Visit GOOGLE HANGOUTS
Hangouts bring conversations to life with photos, emoji, and even group video calls for free. Connect with friends…
This tool is really easy to use:
As soon as you click on the Video icon, so it will pop up a window requesting your permission to use your camera and microphone that you will need to allow then you will have the possibility to invite people by ‘Copy Link to Share’.
To stream a Live Video to your audience, please make sure that your camera works properly and that the sound settings are correct. If needed, so connect a camera and a microphone to your device. We recommend to use earphones with microphone integrated such AirPods or Sony WF 1000XM3 (the one I personally use that beat Apple big time :)
AirPods deliver effortless, all-day audio. AirPods Pro feature Active Noise Cancellation. Both include free engraving…
4 / Manage your Events & Community
The best tool ever for this is called EVENTBRITE :) If your course is Free so you can use it for FREE to create your events very easily. But you have also the possibility to create paid courses and they will take a small commission on it.
We recommend to start by Free Courses to create your community, then after that you feel it growing to request for payment and sold easily your tickets online thanks to this intuitive platform.
5 / Manage your Events & Community
EventBrite made lot of effort to create a platform that is easy to use. When you create an event so you will need to start by the basic information such the date and the time of the event. This is a very important part!
Make sure also to follow all the steps that appears on the left bar to create your event properly and MOST IMPORTANT to copy paste your Zoom Link in the Digital Links section by adding your Livestream Link that you created before on Zoom app or Google Hangouts :)
