As readers of my newsletter know, for several months I’ve been designing and developing an online class to help iPad owners with their Apple tablets. (Not getting my free newsletter? Sign up now in the sidebar on the right). Like everything else on iPad Academy, I wanted to do this myself, from coding to content. Researching, testing and choosing the right tools to support the launch of the Master Class has been challenging, demanding and rewarding.
I designed, developed and delivered many online technology courses as a university professor. However, building a friendly system to do the same with WordPress, plugins and a bit of coding took more time (and patience) than I planned. Yes, I could have outsourced much of the back end design and development, but I wanted to fully understand the process while creating a quality product. I’m self-taught, so I can always blame the teacher if any problems arise. A sneak preview of the iPad Academy Master Class is coming soon, so stay tuned. In the next few weeks, we’ll see just how good a teacher I had.
