How to Choose right Topic to create an Online Course ?
This is where you must focus first.
First condition to create a course is that you must be knowledgeable on the topic or
must be willing to learn it.
Start only when you are fairly good in that topic. You don’t have to be an expert.
Remember that, you don’t have to be an Olympic swimmer to cross any river but you must
definitely know how to swim. So learn to swim in your topic.
Do your research. Try to find out what people are searching for in your selected topic.
Try to look for available online courses for that. Try out few if possible.
What did you feel, when you tried? Was it perfect ? What did you feel was missing in
This is where you will get to grab an opportunity to implement your ideas that were missing
in the course and provide your audience with better content.
For a start try Udemy.com or Skillshare.com. Try any in your niche. You will get the idea
on how to frame a course.
I believe that in today’s competitive market you must provide value to your consumers
only than can you succeed.
In game of cricket there’s a saying “Catches Win Matches”.
Similarly to succeed in any online endeavor the mantra is “ Niches gets you Riches”.
For online course you must identify who your target audience is. Once that is confirmed ,
you will be able to design your course to cater for all things desired by that audience.
What content they are looking for, what is their current level of expertise and what
level of expertise they wish to achieve?
You will be able to provide more courses in selected topic by creating levels of courses.
For example :-
Courses for Beginners, Intermediate, Expert levels.
