In late December, I began a search for a better way to teach my online Scrivener courses. Honestly, I’m always trying to improve, but this time I wanted to take a big leap forward.
I was looking for a way for students to sign up any time of the year and start taking the course immediately, while still allowing me to interact and answer questions. I wanted a platform that would be easy to navigate, let me incorporate video into the lessons that need it most, deliver content in easier-to-digest bites, look great on mobile devices, and make learning more fun.
I found one that hits just about all of my criteria, and I’m working hard to get it set up. But, holy cow, it’s taking W-A-Y longer than I anticipated. I won’t be rolling it out this weekend (as I had originally hoped), but my goal is to have everything running smoothly for the Scrivener Intro courses by mid February. Which was when I had planned to offer those courses again anyway.
Now that I know what I’m up against, I’m confident I can meet that goal.
The changes are a lot of work, but I’m having fun with it. I love digging into the tech side, thinking about how to make Scrivener easier to learn, and how to provide a better experience for everyone.
And I’m excited about launching the new site because it’s seriously going to take the learning experience up a notch.
My Scrivener newsletter subscribers will be the first to know when it’s ready to roll (at a discount for early birds), so if you don’t want to miss out, be sure to sign up today.
I hope your new year is going well. Keep writing and reading and enjoying every day!
