While our platform offers a plethora of topics to choose from, we believe that learning has no bounds. In case you don’t find a particular topic in our list, feel free to create a course and we’ll be glad to integrate it into our platform.

Here is a simple and effective guide to help get you started with your journey of imparting knowledge. Be it video lectures, written courses or industry-specific tutorials, we have you covered!


Decide the topic for your course

What you must remember is that knowledge is power. People want to use that power to transform themselves by learning something new. The goal of your online course is to help guide them through that transformation process.
The key to creating a successful online course is identifying exactly what outcome your audience is looking for.
Do they want to create their own app? Do they want to become industry ready? Maybe they want to learn more about Java? Before you even begin building your online course you have to first figure out what results your students are looking for. If you’ve identified the transformation your students want to go through, you can practically create a course on anything.

Understand your audience and objectives

Now that you have an idea and you know what it is you want to teach; the next step is to know your target audience. The truth is that while you might have a great idea, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it’ll translate into a great product, let alone a great online course. What you don’t want to be doing is spending hours and hours of precious time and energy on something that people ultimately don’t want. The important distinction to make when it comes to validating any product, is that you’re looking for paying customers. You can send out surveys and ask around, but the problem is that you’ll often encounter a lot of people who’ll say that they’d “probably be interested” in what you’re selling.

Structure your course

This is possibly the trickiest part of creating an online course, especially if you’ve never had teaching experience before. Not everyone naturally makes a great teacher. You don’t want to do this on the fly and try to make things up as you go. This is not one of those “just got to stay one lesson ahead of the kid” moments.

If people are paying to learn from you, you need to step up your game. People can hunt down information on their own; what they’re paying you for is your ability to guide them through their transformation process. The easiest way to set up a great course plan is to start repurposing any pre-existing content you have. Trying to create completely new content from scratch can be a huge waste of time and the effort involved might not be worth the payoff.

Look at any blog posts, articles, or eBooks you’ve written in the past—anything where you even mentioned the topic you’re about to teach. Next thing is to look at all the other information that is already out there. Check to see what’s being said about your topic, do some in-depth research. But be careful of getting wrapped up in making this as complete and as perfect as possible. Remember that this is still a minimum viable product. It doesn’t need to be perfect; it just needs to work.

Effectively creating written courses

While different people opt for different methods of learning, we understand how trainers have diversified their ways of imparting knowledge. Written courses are thus, gladly welcomed on UAceIt.
Please make sure:
-The content is well structured and precise
-You define all jargon used via indexing
-Use plenty of examples and real-life scenarios
-Step-by-step details for technical courses
-Resources for further reference

Include practice activities

Every lesson is bound to get monotonous if all the user must do is sit and watch. Keep your students on their toes with practice sessions, quizzes and tests. This also ensures the user is following through and is being able to grasp all the concepts.

A thriving community means different and diverse opinions, and more creative solutions you may not have thought about.
Plus, it helps that your students are more likely to be engaged with what you’re teaching simply through having someone else to talk to about it.

Create your introductory/preview lesson

This happens to be the face of your course and has to have the potential to grasp the user’s attention.

In the video, you’ll introduce yourself, and explain why you are the best person to be teaching this course. You’ll also set the right expectations, telling your students what they’ll learn from your course and what they’ll be able to do by the end of your course.

Set up your price

Pricing your course is entirely up to you however please note that the aim of UAceIt is to allow economical education to all. Hence, we would urge you to keep the price as low as possible.

Some instructors opt to launch their courses as free to generate a following, and then they later switch the course to paid. Keep in mind that while you can change the price of your course at any time, you can switch from free to paid only once.

Courses offered for a fee on UAceIt cannot be offered for free on any other platform (like YouTube or another site).

Set up recording environment for video courses

Setting up your recording environment correctly is essential to helping your students have good experiences with your courses. Students need to be able to see and hear your video without distractions like buzzes, pops, or a shaky camera. The good news is that you don’t need a professional studio to create your course. A good quality course is one with clear audio and video quality. This can be easily achieved with the following equipment.

Set up the equipment for video course

Camera and microphone: Try starting with the camera that you have in your computer, but avoid using the built-in microphone. Invest in a good-quality, hands-free microphone that’s stable, reduces background noise, and is small enough to be invisible in the video.

Screencast software: If your video is a screencast, then you’ll need screencasting software like Quicktime Player, Camstudio, or Jing.

Lighting equipment: First, try out natural light in your room. If it isn’t enough, then try adding lamps and lights that you have at home. If you’re still not getting enough light, we recommend a tree-point lighting kit.
