Creating an Online Course
In-studio, face-to-face courses were easy. I just started and they evolved. Web-based courses without video, similarly. Easy, no learning curve, I just went with it. It was Darren Rowse from ProBlogger who put out the challenge for bloggers to take up video content delivery late in 2016. He claimed that by 2020 much of social media would involve videos.
I am an older person and, aside from jumping straight into web design and blogging, have been slower than younger people to take up some modern technologies, being happy with what I'd used for a lifetime. I decided not to get left behind with video.
It took me twelve months from knowing nothing about video and having no video studio equipment, to launching with my internet-delivered video demonstrations and tutorials on January 1, 2018.
I had previously created DVD demonstration tutorials. Gosh, that would have been back in the early 1990s. The tutorial would still be valid today. The editing would be ghastly I'm sure. It is so much easier to create good videos with today's equipment. With the right diffuser setting on my lights, I can even feel comfortable doing head-to-head. :-) I just bought new LED ring lights. We are always learning and still developing, preparing to launch something.
I'm currently setting up an all-new and improved video studio.
Barn Hill Cattle Station
Situated on the Western edge of the Kimberley, Barn Hill Cattle Station overlooks the Indian Ocean. The main station and caravan sites are a pretty 50-meter walk from the ocean. This is beachside accommodation with an outback country atmosphere.
You see the signpost to Barn Hill, 120km south of Broome, in North Western Australia
We chose a site along the cliff edge where you can enjoy wonderful evenings, sunset views of the Indian Ocean and wrote about this delightful location in the eBook, Kimberley: Outback Western Australia. Caravan Tour with a Dog by Gray Nomad.
Dogs are allowed at Barn Hill, however they must be tied up whilst in the park and exercised away from the camping areas and not on the lawn.
There was only one drawback to our stay at barn Hill. I am not certain of my identification of the seed species but I think it is WIRE GRASS (aristida spp) Also known as Shive, Spear Grass or Feathertop Wire Grass. It was a major problem for our dog.
Ruth Randall's novel "A Judgement in Stone," opens with this line.
"Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write."
In open mystery novel, the reader knows who the murderer is, from the beginning; the mystery is why, and how, they did it, and if they will be caught.
In The Stolen Years series of novels, the reader has a view of who commits many of the crimes. There is plenty of suspense while no one else suspects who the murderer is.
The Stolen Years Series
