I just started listening to the show earlier this year, I really enjoyed the content. I'm an educator and I've recently been outlining a distance learning guide to help all the parents and agers, you're, still adjusting to the world
zoom education. Everyone is frustrated about it snotty but there are a few things that you can do to make it a little bit better. I wish I'd this six months ago. but I'm not sure we knew back then how long this would last. So I want to know what's the best path to get it to market quickly, and what decisions do I need to make for that? So thanks, and I am looking forward to hearing from you: Hey Cody, thanks for the call and indeed everyone is frustrated. We hear about it. the time I know somebody powerlessness affected in this way: distance education, if you're a student now you're not going to a classroom at least a lot of students, art, if your apparent now, all of a sudden, your homes going parent, whether you to be or not, and, of course, if your teacher there's tremendous adjustment there as well, so I eyes. Now, what can you do about it? I love the courtiers is solution focused. You also asks a really good question, which is what decisions do I need to make,
This is a great question to ask. Whenever you have an idea, you like what do actually to decide, because often we get stuck not just out of decision, but I dont know which decisions I need to make so great question. Very helpful I am reminded of this Youtube video. I saw how to use zoom and this video, something like two million views now, the guy who created it had made a bunch of other tech. You know heck friendly? Video is how to use this software and such and some of them did pretty well, but by pretty well I mean like ten thousand twenty thousand years And, of course, the, how do you zoom one now has two million views, so doubling a lot of of interest in this and in distant education is not just. How do you use of technical platform are so much more to it, of course, but I know that there's interests, that's the point,
as for starting six months ago, while yet that would have been nice, but here we are usually take responsibility for the present and the future social decisions you need to make are the market, and this is my first thought here: teachers and parents might be too broad, the teachers needs and the parents needs are totally different. and of course, the students needs are also different. Furthermore, I'm pretty sure that the needs of like an elementary school students and parents of elementary school students, where the students are using ipads. You know to log in and try to complete their assignments in their and our five years old, six years old, whatever it is, I'm pretty sure that their needs are quite different from us. Sixteen year old, perhaps he was thinking about you know cities are easy use or some other standardized test. And how do I apply for college and different needs right so thing is, I would narrow down that market pick one of those or maybe something else next year to decide about format, because Guide can also mean a lot of things. You know. Is
guide and e book? Is it a multimedia course? What does it look like specifically? What are the deliverables for it, as the third thing market format deliverables, the deliverables could be okay, I'm in the right at forty page guide me to put together seven short videos or whatever it is maybe both of those things and then in tandem with that decision platform. How are you going to publish this and the deliverables format may affect the platformer vice versa. But if you know okay, here's where I'm going to publish it, I'm going to make up one page website, and then I do it all myself. Okay and you can do whatever you want, I'm going to put it on you to me or some other third party service than they have various standards that you need to take into account, so deciding on your platform in advance can definite help you, the last major category. I think it is time line. How long will it take to do all this look my suggestion here with this project in particular, I think it can be done from start to finish in the month.
should be like you know, time is of the essence here. You can always improve it later, get it out there and now that's what I think anyway. Let me know It's ready. I would like to share with our audience and listeners. If you have a question, come to satisfy Skoda, coms. Last questions. Let me know. rob to. Let me know if you're working on what you're struggling with I always enjoy here And people if you're doing distance learning distance education of some form. Let's say you are learning or trying to teach or trying to manage and facilitate in some fashion, again, I know it's not always easy out there. So thank you for all. You do hang in. There is best you can and do come back tomorrow My name is critical about. This is sign silence all school.
From the onward projects.
