When I began leading content development at Pluralsight, I noticed a startling trend: over 60% of first-time authors failed to ever complete a course.
These were super talented people with experience writing technical content and presenting at conferences and meetups. So why was creating a course so difficult for them?
I spent months studying every step in the course creation process. I talked with successful authors, studied their processes, and talked with authors who quit.
From this research, I designed a course development framework to guide creators through a standardized process from end to end. No guesswork about what to do next. No mysteries about how to go from idea to finished course. And clear expectations about quality.
Two years later, the author attrition rate was under 25%. Better yet, we increased the number of courses we could publish on the platform to over 1,000 annually, and decreased course creation time to under 90 days.
This framework also taught authors what they needed to know along the way to succeed. By the end of their first course, they would know the process and techniques well enough to make their next course mostly on their own.
Creating a course doesn't have to be mysterious. There's no need to reinvent the wheel. If you put in the time and effort, and follow a framework, you will succeed.
This course will guide you through my proven course development framework, and help you produce an awesome course.
