120: How to Record or Re-Record a Course

Feb 15, 2024

Since 2018, the Surface Design Immersion course has been an incredible honor to provide. But the nature of the course means that it needs continuous updates to stay on top of technology improvements and to be sure that students get the best education in surface pattern design that I can provide. So, every two years, the course gets an update and sometimes that even means an entire overhaul!

Because this is a year of re-recording and updating the course, I thought I’d take a moment to talk about what goes into this development process in this episode. From pre-production to post-production, developing a successful course involves meticulous planning, dedication, and a keen eye for detail. This episode gives some tips, tricks, and strategies that can help you navigate every stage of course development with efficiency.

Whether you're embarking on the journey of creating a new course or updating an existing one, we'll cover a lot of ground in this episode. We'll take a deep dive into the pre-production phase, where the groundwork is laid, and the vision for the course begins to take shape. From organizing changes to keeping track of additions and removals, we'll explore where to begin and how to streamline the process. There are probably a lot of little details that you haven’t thought about and so very much that goes on behind the scenes of a successful course.

It is something that is difficult, but also really rewarding. It is the greatest work of my life, this course. It is an epic honor to be able to do it and update it every other year.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • Tips and tricks on preparing for the production of a new course
  • How and what to consider what to update in future iterations of a course
  • Unexpected details and the work that goes into development
