What Options are Available to Deliver Your Online Course
When it comes to delivering your course there are lots of options. If you aren’t sure of what to do remember the decision starts with what you know your audience needs and how you can best help them. My advice is to start small and create some wins for your audience and your business. Your online course doesn’t need to be a huge undertaking. You can start small and grow from there. Some options to create your online course include:
- a mini-course or training – a 15-minute video training on a simple task

- 1 to 2-week course
- 3 to 12-week course
- 3 to 12-week course with group coaching
