We’re living through a time where there’s an abundance of information readily available to us including educational online courses where we can learn new skills and techniques from people all over the world. How do we sift through this information to find the experts whose courses provide the most value? As designers, how can we enter this world of creating meaningful and valuable online courses?

In this episode, Mike and Tim talk about their experiences taking online courses on platforms like Lynda and Masterclass to expand their skillset with architecture design software and to reaffirm their ideologies as architects. They also discuss the negative impacts of new course creators who focus on earning money in lieu of providing great courses filled with valuable information and tutorials.

Mike and Tim talk about the importance of course creators gaining the trust of their subscribers by providing as much value as possible in a clear manner. Mike gives some insight on how he developed his online course on Udemy and his advice to new course creators. They also share some insights on how designers can start developing a personal brand through free videos showing their process of design and eventually create an online course when they feel confident with video content and have a following.
