We'll be using Teachable to create an online course. If you don't have a Teachable account yet, just click on the link in the description box below to create one for free. Once you've logged in to your Teachable account, click on 'courses' from the left-hand side panel.
If you've already created an online course, that course will appear in this section. To create a new online course, click on the turquoise button that says 'new course' on the top, right-hand corner.
This is where you'll add basic information about your online course as well as the author name. Don't worry since you can always change this information later. So go ahead and add a course title, a course subtitle, and either select an existing author from the dropdown menu, or add a new author by adding their full name in the space provided. Once you're done, click on 'create course'.
Teachable will automatically redirect you to the curriculum section of your online course. You can click on the pencil icon next to where it says 'first section' and 'first lesson' to rename those. To add a new lecture to this first section, all you have to do is click on 'add new lecture'.
Again, you can click on the pencil icon to rename this lecture, and then click on it to add lecture content to it. There are a number of content blocks you can add to your online course lecture in Teachable, including a file, text, quiz, code example, custom code and an upsell. To add content from any of these content blocks, all you have to do is click on it, and follow the instructions provided.
For instance, to add a new file to this lecture, click on 'add file', and then either drop a video, audio, PDF, or other files in the space provided, or click on 'choose files' to select one from your computer, web images, link, FTP, Dropbox, Google Drive or One Drive. Click on 'choose files again', select the file you wish to add to your online course lecture, and then click on 'open'. Once the file has opened, click on 'upload' to add it to your online course lecture.
You can add more than one content block to the same lecture, meaning that you can add multiple files, or a mixture of all of these content types. For instance, to add text to this lecture as well, click on 'add text', write what you wish in the space provided, and then click on 'add text' at the bottom.
If you so wish, you can reorder these content blocks by clicking on the left-hand side of a content block, and then dragging and dropping it into a new position. Each content block will also have additional things that you can do to it, located on its right-hand side. For the text block, you can either click to edit the text, or delete the text block altogether. For the file block, you can either click to enable download, which means that your online course students will be able to not only view this file, but also save it to their computer, or delete the file block altogether.
