🧭 Course Creators Weekly #2 πŸ—“ July 6th, 2020 - The Trouble with Self-Paced Courses

Welcome to the second issue of Course Creators Weekly! πŸŽ‰

I understand that not everyone has the time to read, watch or listen to all of the content I share each week. I want to make Course Creators Weekly digestible in under a minute, and a valuable resource on its own. So, I've decided to complement each link with a few bullet points summarising the key ideas. πŸ’‘

Also, instead of sharing 5 pieces of content every week, I'll aim for 3 to 5. That way, it's easier for me to summarise and quicker for you to consume!

Let me know what you think! πŸ™‚

Hey, I'm Merott πŸ‘‹πŸ»

I'm an indie maker and freelance web developer from London.

I'm building my own business, because I'm terrible at following other people, and because I want my work to matter. I hope it will, to you and to your students.

Making progress, slowly and steadily, I'm also documenting and tweeting my journey every Monday @merott .

Thanks for visiting!
