Like Sophie, education is my passion. The BNI Foundation supports children in education. Children represent 20% of the world’s population, but they are 100% of our future. To me, education is crucial, and it goes along with one of my favorite expressions:
“You may not be able to make a world of difference, but you can make a difference in the world.”
Sophie and I share the emphasis on edutainment and applying what you learn. Theory is no good if you can’t apply it! You’ve got to entertain people while teaching them. If you lecture, people will go to sleep. You’ve got to tell stories, and you’ve got to bring the knowledge to life. Get them to DO the exercises so that they get engaged in learning.
In The Ultimate Course Creation Guide, Sophie shows you how to develop a robust educational program in bitesize pieces. She helps you clarify WHO your audience is, WHAT challenges they have, and HOW you can help them transform their lives and get the desired outcome. When you look at your online program through the eyes of your audience, it is much easier to include WHAT they need to know and WHY, and then show them HOW to apply what they are learning.
Sophie’s approach to course creation reminds me of a recent conversation with Richard Branson, Founder of the Virgin Group. He said: “Any fool can make something complex. It’s the really smart person who simplifies it.”
What I admire most about Sophie and her approach to growing your business with online courses is that she is a very experienced educator. Her practical experience shows in all her templates and guides throughout the book. Sophie wants you to be successful and build the business and life of your dreams. For example, she encourages you to see your online course as one of the tiers in the financial model for your business. If your audience wants more personalized help, you can offer your coaching and consulting services in addition to your online courses. I also like the way she recommends you repurpose your course content into books and articles to grow your visibility and build your credibility, which, when done with consistency, will lead to your profitability.
I see that the future of face-to-face is online. The technology is advancing at such a rate into mixed reality, Metaverse, and 3D technology, that the future will be online. And because the future will be online, I highly recommend Sophie’s book and course creation support services if you want to embrace the future and grow your business with edutaining programs online.Ivan Misner, Ph.D.
