Creating your own courses enables you to easily share your tacit knowledge with your students in a structured and engaging manner. 

The “key” to creating a successful online course is proper strategic planning. This will help you save your time when creating the course content. At the same time, it will help you provide an effective learning experience for your students. Ideally, your course should be a well-thought set of standalone lectures or progressive lessons on a specific topic. 

  1. At TacitKey, we recommend that you should have at least 3 lectures or chapters per course, out of which at least 50% should be video/audio content.

  1. Please ensure that the audio and video is not distracting and are of high-quality.

  1. When you are developing your video content, please ensure that the video is of high-resolution, approximately about 720p or HD, with bright background lighting. 

  1. Additionally, please ensure that the audio quality is top-notch, with your voice being clearly audible. Additionally, your audio should be completely synced with the video. 

  1. Please provide a transcription of your video/audio to ensure what you are trying to communicate is clear to everyone, and that there is no confusion due to the difference in accents etc. 

  1. Please ensure that the length of each lecture is at least 30 minutes. Also, make sure that your content is updated.

  1. Make sure to keep the file size to less than 10 GB limit.
