Udemy Tech Talk 2017 | Max on Stage at Udemy Live

  • 00:00:00 welcome to this video as you can tell by
  • 00:00:03 the San Francisco trip report videos
  • 00:00:05 show up into San Francisco together with
  • 00:00:09 Manuel I was able to join you to me life
  • 00:00:11 which is udemy's conference for
  • 00:00:14 instructors and there I fortunately was
  • 00:00:16 always able to participate in a panel
  • 00:00:19 where some of udemy's instructors
  • 00:00:21 basically share how they became you to
  • 00:00:23 be instructors how they handle course
  • 00:00:26 creation and Zahn I'm happy to share the
  • 00:00:30 questions I got and my answers with you
  • 00:00:32 in this video I hope you'll enjoy it
  • 00:00:34 oh so let's split them to tell about who
  • 00:00:37 move on our Channel today I'm going to
  • 00:00:39 have each of our Channel and actually
  • 00:00:40 introduce themselves by sharing a little
  • 00:00:42 bit about what they were up to before
  • 00:00:43 unity and then also if you guys can
  • 00:00:46 share the story or so of the 20 years of
  • 00:00:48 students I think it's always interesting
  • 00:00:51 so I'm act just as many of my students I
  • 00:00:56 teach I'm actually not a what to
  • 00:00:59 overrule orders in college but I myself
  • 00:01:00 thought what we offer I do teach web
  • 00:01:02 development now on duty but before I
  • 00:01:04 start doing that I worked in there and
  • 00:01:05 how quickly began to study Business
  • 00:01:07 Administration and just many of my
  • 00:01:09 students I decided this is not of a
  • 00:01:11 child I wanna do for the end of my life
  • 00:01:13 so I could at least acknowledge it was
  • 00:01:15 absent one hurt you in a world but
  • 00:01:16 development on my own and started
  • 00:01:18 learning it working as a freelancer and
  • 00:01:20 the psychology that started putting up a
  • 00:01:22 YouTube channel it was a thought would
  • 00:01:23 be interesting to share some technology
  • 00:01:25 garden shears or VHS and Elliott
  • 00:01:27 self-taught developer and YouTube
  • 00:01:29 channel work very well so then I thought
  • 00:01:31 well why should I wanted you to say one
  • 00:01:33 on GTB and strengthening a force rich
  • 00:01:36 people web development identified that
  • 00:01:38 started and the cool thing about the
  • 00:01:40 community is he interacts you actually
  • 00:01:42 have with all the students and they're
  • 00:01:44 both memorable moments which are
  • 00:01:46 attended weird and also really awesome
  • 00:01:47 so weird moment rest of the world
  • 00:01:49 student we actually was we thousands of
  • 00:01:53 questions the Q&A section to Chris
  • 00:01:55 every single x-rays us mentioning the
  • 00:01:58 mr. Armstrong never fight you every
  • 00:02:00 questions ever that not fun because of
  • 00:02:03 the business I played on how it is and
  • 00:02:06 why it claimed the way it is a lecture
  • 00:02:08 and as yet awaited London five-star
  • 00:02:10 reading which was pretty amazing now
  • 00:02:13 totally to experience was when I went to
  • 00:02:16 vacation in Greece and I kind of dropped
  • 00:02:19 it in the mountainous sense a week
  • 00:02:20 earlier and again he would start a
  • 00:02:23 pretty necklace where they said hey max
  • 00:02:25 on vacation so we should probably help
  • 00:02:26 him out in on two questions in queue
  • 00:02:29 later this year on vacation it was
  • 00:02:31 pretty or it was a real big help
  • 00:02:35 yes so exercise those were you to start
  • 00:02:39 us off can you tell me a little bit of
  • 00:02:41 just the first point right here how do
  • 00:02:43 you think about selecting what course
  • 00:02:45 you're going to create next for your
  • 00:02:47 coin operating sure nothing that would
  • 00:02:49 teach web development and I can get to
  • 00:02:51 the broader area very if you actually
  • 00:02:54 work as a developer stolen I'm taking a
  • 00:02:56 project but they still develop a log by
  • 00:02:58 project and on and so I still am active
  • 00:03:01 in the community to get a feeling for
  • 00:03:03 what's coming up with what's trending
  • 00:03:05 and especially you for me in the
  • 00:03:07 front-end frameworks we're all a lot of
  • 00:03:11 changing or what have changed over the
  • 00:03:13 last years and instead they act as an in
  • 00:03:16 building new project all the time we're
  • 00:03:19 or diving into discussions on tech over
  • 00:03:21 clothes on which which gets you a
  • 00:03:23 feeling for once what this council is
  • 00:03:25 coming up with interesting what people
  • 00:03:27 want to learn and you want to get to be
  • 00:03:28 picked by your students once you have
  • 00:03:30 them but don't have Senate we just does
  • 00:03:32 diving into communities you can ask for
  • 00:03:34 brief you can't look as usual thousand
  • 00:03:36 YouTube channels on on tap and see what
  • 00:03:38 they are teaching that's super
  • 00:03:40 interesting to their 6 p.m. to know and
  • 00:03:42 to just look at what you know what's
  • 00:03:44 coming up what's awesome let's change
  • 00:03:45 even what you might want to do to cover
  • 00:03:47 and then you can use tools likely to be
  • 00:03:50 in situ which was launched a few months
  • 00:03:51 ago against a week ago which is really
  • 00:03:54 great for being
  • 00:03:56 when you cover the nudity and which
  • 00:03:57 opportunities you have there and you'll
  • 00:04:00 obviously you're not always the first
  • 00:04:01 ones present of course there are areas
  • 00:04:03 where there are all the art was
  • 00:04:05 accessible courses but then you can go
  • 00:04:07 further than that it's not just a topic
  • 00:04:09 it's also the kind of risk you can cover
  • 00:04:11 the Commish like focus on specific
  • 00:04:13 aspects like security or
  • 00:04:16 just call the full-text or swing even
  • 00:04:18 Otago and web development we just
  • 00:04:20 respond with area which is something and
  • 00:04:23 you can all differ by the course length
  • 00:04:25 there is like a birdie Altoids I went to
  • 00:04:27 Japan l1 which is like the compact
  • 00:04:29 variation of focus to one area or you do
  • 00:04:31 the long one isn't there yet and this is
  • 00:04:34 basically how I approach it and you have
  • 00:04:36 to be pretty flexible there because
  • 00:04:37 things change rapidly or the course
  • 00:04:39 coming rapidly to change to when you
  • 00:04:41 plan that's also artistic course
  • 00:04:43 creation process it's not like set in
  • 00:04:45 stone when you write your first
  • 00:04:47 curriculum it's not necessarily what you
  • 00:04:49 end up with at the end of the day okay
  • 00:04:52 can you give a few examples of some
  • 00:04:53 sites or that you actually yes sure
  • 00:04:55 Cabrillo for example angular my first
  • 00:04:57 big of course which I created I try it
  • 00:05:00 out on YouTube and I saw that there
  • 00:05:02 again a lot of traction with individuals
  • 00:05:04 even though one channel was relatively
  • 00:05:05 small so it's not coming from my
  • 00:05:07 subscribers but actually from new versus
  • 00:05:09 visiting my chest and YouTube is a great
  • 00:05:11 area to try on topics because it's free
  • 00:05:13 to bring up a video as a grouping will
  • 00:05:15 use especially if you don't have a big
  • 00:05:17 audience probably a month topic and that
  • 00:05:20 I decided to do something there into the
  • 00:05:22 court and then I create more for saying
  • 00:05:25 order the future because it gets at see
  • 00:05:26 second you see what's interesting there
  • 00:05:28 in time can diversify that that would be
  • 00:05:30 some sort of good time in an extra large
  • 00:05:34 how do you guys–do expectations
  • 00:05:36 students about answer questions to bigs
  • 00:05:38 ideas for one I try to read encouraged
  • 00:05:41 students to also answer questions on the
  • 00:05:43 road for they help each other because
  • 00:05:44 for one degree helps them because they
  • 00:05:46 learn more as a consequences instead of
  • 00:05:48 just ask employees to ask the harder to
  • 00:05:51 answer
  • 00:05:51 and nothing I do for questions which
  • 00:05:54 come up very often because you typically
  • 00:05:56 like 70% were ticked except the
  • 00:05:59 questions you get are questions you've
  • 00:06:00 gotten before
  • 00:06:01 and for me I really just have a black
  • 00:06:04 channel where I paste in GD answers they
  • 00:06:07 gave in the past that I just pull the
  • 00:06:09 miles we have the links to the original
  • 00:06:10 to Nate resurrected I answered it but I
  • 00:06:13 can quickly point you to the right
  • 00:06:15 resources to the right answer that's
  • 00:06:17 also free cup sometime maybe this is for
  • 00:06:20 everybody
  • 00:06:21 quickly curious the mechanics of how you
  • 00:06:23 create a course things like what screen
  • 00:06:26 capture tools or how to get that quality
  • 00:06:28 one of the things I've had with Excel
  • 00:06:30 for instance is low quality when I was
  • 00:06:32 trying to be with you know capture the
  • 00:06:34 screen image so how do you guys do that
  • 00:06:36 get rid of all of the clutter so you can
  • 00:06:38 really just focus on the content and not
  • 00:06:41 the tools themselves but what tools are
  • 00:06:43 you're using to create it not the coding
  • 00:06:47 the videos
  • 00:06:49 yes I actually voted upon complicated
  • 00:06:52 setup and I believe it's worth it
  • 00:06:53 because I do put my head in a lot of
  • 00:06:56 videos actually at least at the
  • 00:06:57 beginning section because I find it
  • 00:06:59 important that people don't just have a
  • 00:07:00 screen to look at but also to see who is
  • 00:07:03 teaching them and doesn't if you go
  • 00:07:04 through the full course because the most
  • 00:07:07 even there it becomes very cumbersome
  • 00:07:08 quickly and might not be worth the
  • 00:07:09 effort but now since you asked for
  • 00:07:11 specific tools now I found it very
  • 00:07:13 different on a Mac or on Windows
  • 00:07:15 actually on Mac super simple there is
  • 00:07:17 Greenville there it's super easy it
  • 00:07:19 stars you basically press the button and
  • 00:07:20 you can record it you can record the
  • 00:07:23 audio whether you just need a good
  • 00:07:24 microphone and regarding the the editing
  • 00:07:27 I do actually put quite some time into
  • 00:07:29 post-production who was once you have
  • 00:07:30 clean cuts and a 1/2 unnecessary errors
  • 00:07:34 in there on adding them I call out
  • 00:07:38 sometimes too much words it with I use
  • 00:07:40 that their primary and after effects but
  • 00:07:42 of course you're all the free tools or
  • 00:07:43 their cheap tools you can use on whether
  • 00:07:46 it is actually a bit more difficult I I
  • 00:07:48 directed nice to get a good screen
  • 00:07:50 quality especially on Windows 10 on to
  • 00:07:53 no one would train Tony was a bit more
  • 00:07:55 difficult as a little bit of a mess
  • 00:07:57 together to look
  • 00:07:58 but there there are free tools like a
  • 00:08:00 OBS open broadcaster software suddenly
  • 00:08:03 freeze both works on that and you just
  • 00:08:06 well search for the settings for for
  • 00:08:09 screen recording print out Felder cuz
  • 00:08:11 you can just search for bed set up or
  • 00:08:14 let's say Jordan 720p or at an HP
  • 00:08:17 protection and use them and don't mess
  • 00:08:21 around too much with aesthetic because
  • 00:08:22 it's easy to get a bad picture but as
  • 00:08:24 Stevie said it does need a good picture
  • 00:08:26 and not like perfect calibration for
  • 00:08:28 everything that's basically what I have
  • 00:08:31 to add there hey Alfred is I have
  • 00:08:34 another question but how much percentage
  • 00:08:36 wise you talk about the following how
  • 00:08:38 much do you feel you do you say to put
  • 00:08:40 your head in it so 10% 50% I mean what
  • 00:08:45 do you find is working that was my
  • 00:08:47 original question which is expired yeah
  • 00:08:49 it really depends like words the do of
  • 00:08:51 course is where I only have my head and
  • 00:08:53 like the getting at the end of each
  • 00:08:54 section where I lay out there at the
  • 00:08:56 module and then summarize it in other
  • 00:08:58 words that I had in every single video
  • 00:09:00 buzz over time all the records that
  • 00:09:02 might be a little too much also some
  • 00:09:05 students don't like it because it can't
  • 00:09:07 be distracting so typically what I try
  • 00:09:10 is attributed it tries to it at the
  • 00:09:12 first section of the course because
  • 00:09:13 there is where most students are still
  • 00:09:15 with you and watch the cord and there it
  • 00:09:18 can be a real benefit and it is the ones
  • 00:09:20 engaged in its beginning and handle
  • 00:09:22 every section so patience when I do a
  • 00:09:24 summary I want them to be able to see
  • 00:09:26 myself because if you don't have that
  • 00:09:28 much in the screener can some PowerPoint
  • 00:09:30 slides and yet you want to be able to
  • 00:09:32 communicate with your students tear it
  • 00:09:33 for safely course roundup so that is
  • 00:09:36 what I try to do there in the center
  • 00:09:37 twice then it's not like maybe only 5 to
  • 00:09:40 10% but if the parts rated you it is
  • 00:09:43 important my actual question zone with
  • 00:09:47 what I just had is um so how much time
  • 00:09:50 how do you produce the obsessive
  • 00:09:53 projects not his snap sent locomotive
  • 00:09:56 sniffles I mean we're talking about
  • 00:09:57 researching new stuff and sure you can
  • 00:09:59 get little snippets but
  • 00:10:01 sounds like I guess I assume everybody
  • 00:10:03 has like some kind of sample project but
  • 00:10:06 as you go along to do another one how do
  • 00:10:09 you approach that to me that that's a
  • 00:10:11 veteran point who made it figure out do
  • 00:10:13 I do create new sample projects when why
  • 00:10:16 leverage rum and how do I come up with a
  • 00:10:18 whole cohesive project for one class I
  • 00:10:22 thought a same approach Ross mentioned
  • 00:10:24 earlier I try think about the topics
  • 00:10:26 that when I cover in the course and then
  • 00:10:28 I was thinking about project very good
  • 00:10:30 this is all into word as many features
  • 00:10:32 off the language or break or whatever
  • 00:10:34 other types of teaching this gives you
  • 00:10:36 would fit into one thing order two or
  • 00:10:38 three projects and I think about real
  • 00:10:40 life websites you know like Facebook you
  • 00:10:43 can try building a simple clone of that
  • 00:10:46 of course not put all the
  • 00:10:47 functionalities in there but have
  • 00:10:48 project students read clients then build
  • 00:10:51 it on your own see if you can fit all
  • 00:10:53 that work on the content of the course
  • 00:10:55 into it and that's basically how I built
  • 00:10:57 it out the weapons you also hit pain
  • 00:10:59 points or things where you rent micro
  • 00:11:01 issues that have to come to bed and of
  • 00:11:02 course too because it's going to be
  • 00:11:03 difficult to implement or we need some
  • 00:11:05 additional knowledge there that is how I
  • 00:11:07 typically approach Ted and then I just I
  • 00:11:08 just build it i builders that taste
  • 00:11:10 obviously a couple of days weeks depends
  • 00:11:13 on the project and then I build it again
  • 00:11:15 through the course sometimes they
  • 00:11:17 deviate there if I see what that would
  • 00:11:18 be interesting to comfort you
  • 00:11:20 but that's how I approach it
