In a previous post I mentioned that I am a teacher at the Belly Dance Business Academy (BDBA). Last month I published my first course! It’s a free online course called Playlist Essentials for Bellydancers and this is what we do in the course:
What goes on behind the scenes of publishing an e-course
It’s been a steep learning curve in the last months, creating an online course and learning how to talk on video. I have so many exciting classes and courses that I want to share with you! In order to become a better teacher online I had to overcome my fear of talking on video. Turns out that sitting in front of a camera on a tripod is not my cup of tea and I embraced the selfiestick instead.
Creating the course meant breaking the material down in smaller steps and learning how to use the e-learning platform. The platform is easy to use but the switch from teaching face to face towards online teaching is challenging. For now, the course material is written text and pictures but I like to do more with video in the future. All things in due time.
About the course
The course is for anyone who wants to learn more about digital music management. By creating playlists of your music, you’ll have all the music you need in one place! We start by going through the basics like what type of music management apps there are, so you’ll be ready to get started onthe device of your choice. In this course’I’ll walk you through the various activities of bellydancers. Students, teachers and performers all have different needs, so your playlist wil lbe unique! We’re matching it top types of songs that you can include in your playlist. I will give suggestions and I’ll share my own Playlist Essentials with you.
I invite you to join me on this course.It is free, and you can enroll by creating an account at the BDBA and click on the course. As this is the first course that I’ve created, I love to get feedback! You can comment on the course, send me a PM on Facebook or comment below this blogpost. I hope to see you there!
