Clark Quinn

While I think in the long run it would be to their advantage, I think that even a slow and even slightly buggy version of a needed app would be better received and more useful than none. I’ve previously discussed the fight between Apple and Adobe about Flash (e.g. here ), but I had a realization that I think is important. What I was talking about before was the potential to create a market place beyond text, graphics, and media, and to start capitalizing on learning interactivity.

How to Write an Irresistible Course Description

LearnDash

The problem I have with this advice is that it seems to assume that learners won’t bother to read a longer version. You will almost certainly need a bite-sized version to use in a variety of contexts —like an elevator pitch. But if you’re also writing a longer course page—which I would recommend—it may help to start with the detailed version and then edit down to something in the neighborhood of 150 words.

For example, knowing that you’d like to offer an intermediate or expert version of your course later can help highlight areas in beginner course content where you should allude to this material to pique interest from beginner students. Online courses are a fantastic way to transfer your expertise into the willing hands and minds of would-be students.
