Creating Online Video Course Content

So yeah really in content samurai you can get a video out there in a; a great video out there not just like a crap two minute video; I'm talking a decent video with good content in about 30 minutes. Get that up whether it's YouTube and optimize it properly by your top of ranking [00:08:34.00] so yeah you see I'm flying through here.  The longer sentences I kind of got some of it wrong so just hit the record if you want to preview what you have done, if you think you may have said a word that doesn't sound right or something you can actually just preview what you have done and there I'm done finish recording the audio.


While the truth of a person requiring a specific presentation style in order to learn is debated, it is widely accepted that people have preferences for the way they learn. By providing multiple delivery options, you make sure to meet the student at their strength or preference level. Planning the placement of video, visual components like diagrams and pictures, text documentation and other multi-media help people grasp and apply the concepts and tasks you are trying to teach.

This goes beyond the previous point of learning preferences. It provides the best ways to reach students with multiple touch points which can help facilitate the learning process. When done properly, it also provides students the ability for quick reference when needed. For example, a video demonstration is a great way to show a task. Having the steps written out is best for quick reference after the video is viewed.

An effectively designed online course or program must take into account multiple factors – the characteristics of targeted learners, the nature of the content, the role of the community in shaping learning, and integration of ongoing feedback and assessment; ample opportunities for practice and expert feedback to guide the development of knowledge in action.

I have read all of the posts but continue to have questions regarding my desire to create training modules, with testing and online completion for businesses. I want to sell customized courses to businesses, perferbaly small businesses. My idea is to find their training needs and create the module based on their business. What type of platform, and what LMS should I purchase that allows me to create the course and then allow my client to purchase and/or use it for their access. I am assuming it will need to be cloud based. I am a retired technology and business instructor and looking to fulfill my creative outlet and make some extra money if possible. I have used educational platforms but not the current offerings that are overwhelming me when trying to make this decision. I want to be sure I am not overlooking valuable information. Any suggestions? Thanks and great posts and information!
edX is great, but it’s not a platform most people are going to be able to publish on. I don’t think of Moodle as a MOOC, just an open source course platform. It has a lot going for it, though not always easy for non-technical people to use. I cover a couple of plug-ins above to add e-commerce capabilities to Moodle (the native ones are not so hot). – Jeff
As far as dat goes, with most platforms you will be able to export the names and e-mail addresses of your customers, but there is a very good chance you would not be able to simply export passwords and import them into your new system. This would require a more complex level of migration (unless you have the tech skills) will probably require some help. That said, it is often possible to import the names and e-mails and then have people reset their passwords to simply establish a new password in the new system.
Hey! We enjoyed reading your article. But, the majority of the companies listed on this page are for long term courses/classes. At PharmPsych Sites we cater mostly to Continuing Education professionals in the medical field, many of whom just need a short term solution. In the medical field information changes quickly, and most of our users do not want to have a long term course. We make it easy and simple to do that.. In fact, our prices are below the range of what you listed; we also have some free packages. We would appreciate it if you would take a look at what we have to offer and provide us with some feedback: https://pharmpsych.com/sites/

Screencasting refers to a technique where you can record your computer screen while adding a voiceover. It is commonly used for technical training, software training, and step-by-step video tutorials. You’ll likely want to edit the beginning and end of each video segment, so look for a screencasting tool with some editing capabilities. For Mac users, iMovie works well for basic editing.


Just to put cost in some context, when I designed and built one of the very first eLearning platforms for Sun Microsystems in 1996 to train my sales force, I had to hire 23 web page creators and instructional designers to build my site. Sixty hours of on-line training cost me $1.34 million dollars. Of course, at that time, no alternatives existed and Saba, Blackboard and Moodle all came by to see SunTAN (Sun Training Access Network) to see my learner-centric model. I used Java to create custom pages on the fly depending on the audience (salespeople want just the basics and sales engineers wanted everything possible). But within 2 years I was able to show the CEO a >125% ROI (increased sales and getting them trained faster than in the classroom) and I never had any problem keeping my content updated from that point on when execs understood eLearning’s importance. Of course we didn’t call it eLearning then, Cisco’s John Chambers coined that word a year later. Today I am using LearnDash to create a site for my 4000-person active senior community and the cost will be more like $15,000.
