1. Choose Your Topic
So what are you going to teach?
You need to pick a topic that you know like the back of your hand. After all, you want to provide a great class. You can’t do that if you don’t know what you’re talking about.
Pick something that you know well and that you’re also passionate about. Passion will give you more motivation to craft your curriculum.
Are you an artist? Do you love writing? What about playing music?
Regardless of your interest, as long as you know and love it, you might be ready to teach it to others.
2. Pick the Right Platform
Now you have to decide where you’re going to teach. There are plenty of great options on the web, but if you’re looking for ease and convenience, Symposium is a great choice.
You get to work directly with your learners. They’ll help you manage your scheduling, they’ll make sure that you get paid for your hard work, and you might even earn a few tips.
Working with Symposium is easy!
3. Create Your Course
This is the tricky part, but it’s also a lot of fun!
You’re creating your own curriculum when you’re teaching online. If you were a learner, how would you like the teacher to set up the class?
Remember that you might have students who are brand new to your specialized niche, so start from the beginning.
Start by doing your research. While you already have experience in your niche, it’s helpful if you use outside resources to bulk up your course and make sure that you’re doing everything right.
Next, make an outline. This is a guide for how the class is going to do. Think of it as a course calendar (even if your real-life schedule might not follow specific dates or times. It gives you a roadmap).
After this, you take each section of your calendar or outline and bulk them up with content creation. Are you planning on individual teaching? Start thinking about how you want to talk to your students.
You could also take this time to pre-record your courses.
4. Become a Marketing Master
Now you get to market your course.
Go on social media and share your course with others. Friends and family members may be willing to share it for you as well.
If online marketing isn’t your forté, no problem. Symposium can help you reach your potential students so you can focus on teaching!
