Course Creation Best Practice 6: Resources Needed

How do you feel about surprises? Love or hate them, one thing guaranteed is that your learners will not thank you for needing a particular resource to complete your course, unless they know about it up front. This applies even if the resource is financially free (because it still costs time).

Make it obvious on your information / sales / landing page what resources a successful student will need – even if you think it’s blindingly obvious, say it anyway! Give them the ‘ideal’ list of resources and a ‘minimum’ level to work with.

For example, you might think that a course on building a website would obviously require the student to have a reasonable internet connection. But could they learn about this and build one from a mobile / cell phone internet connection?
