Episode 235: How “Complete-able” is Your Online Course? Here are 3 Things to Improve (FS235)

We spoke to one of the most prolific and successful course makers we know, Vanessa Van Edwards, about how we can all improve our online courses.

For any of you course makers out there these insights are going to help you make much more successful courses — both for you and your customers.

Online courses are being created like crazy these days because the market for e-learning has exploded in the past decade.

Now average people like you and I can use tools that come built-in to phones, tablets and laptops to create training that people are desperate for.

However, the massive popularity and ease of access to tools means there’s a ton of competition out there.

Today you can’t just make a course that sells, you have to make a course that students complete and rave about.

What we need to do is make every one of our students a walking testimonial for our course.



That’s what Vanessa knows all about. She has over 150,000 students on Udemy, and over 120,000 students on CreativeLive.

And we got a bunch of incredible insights from her 🙂

In the conversation below we get into three areas you can focus on to improve the “complete-ability” of your course.

  1. Course content: how can you know what works and what doesn’t before you press record?
  2. Lesson complete-ability: how can you measure course progress to see where you can improve your lessons for better completion?
  3. Exercise interest: how can you use your exercises and downloads to make your messages completely memorable?

Although this is a graduate level conversation for course-makers, Vanessa’s advice for completely new course creators is profound and clear.

If your online course is not “complete-able” you’re wasting your time and the time of your students.

Here’s some more of the goods you’ll find in this conversation:
