Making All My Notes Public 🤦‍♂️ - Issue #14

Making All My Notes Public 🤦‍♂️ - Issue #14
By Art's Newsletter • Issue #14 • View online
Hi y'all 👋
I ordered two of those plug/ethernet bad boys to get rid of my latency issue with my WiFi router.
Shoutout to K for the recommendation 🙌
Topics this week:
🤦‍♂️ Making all my notes public
🤷‍♂️ Why I quit my sabbatical after 4 weeks
📚 How to publish your first book // h/t @julietrelstad @fostercowriting
🏝 The Remote conference you shouldn’t miss #REMOTEbyGitLab

You Can Access All My Notes (All of Them) 🤦‍♂️
Open Source projects share their code for free.
Content is cheap. Implementation is expensive.
I think the same can work for online education.
Completion rates of self-paced courses are super low (~3-6%).
On the other hand facilitation can move the needle for students.
The Holy Trinity of value capture 🤷‍♂️
The Holy Trinity of value capture 🤷‍♂️
As a course creator you are building a curriculum:
  • 🔍 Researching topics
  • 📊 Finding examples
  • 📝 Synthesizing learnings
I am storing all of this information in a structured Notion page.
As of today I started giving it away for free👇
🏝 Remote
For now it’s an experiment. I hope it does not backfire 🤦‍♂️
In the coming weeks I will document my thinking and processes:
  1. Break entire course content down into smaller topics
  2. Organize topic-specific mini workshops
  3. Prepare agenda based on participant need
  4. Create shareable assets
  5. Re-use assets for non-workshop distribution
  6. Learn what works and improve content
  7. Rinse & repeat
🤔 I’d love to connect if you have thoughts around this topic.

Just participated in a Remote Team Communication workshop facilitated by @artlapinsch - and it was great! Check out his slides and additional resources here: - great ideas, great tools, recommended :)
Why I Quit My Sabbatical: The Online Education Opportunity
A couple of friends have asked me a few questions over and over again:
  • What are online courses?
  • Why are YOU building courses?
  • Was OnDeck Course Creators worth it?
Instead of answering it on a one-off basis I put it into a 10-minute blog post (with lots of images & tweets) 👇

📚 How to Publish as an Indie Writer
On a totally random note: Next week I’m interviewing a seasoned author on the Foster Writing podcast.
