This is known as the information age. Lifelong learning whether in a formal context like a course or training seminar or informally through reading how-to books and watching videos, is now the norm. A Pew Internet survey found that 74% of American adults had participated in at least one formal learning activity in the twelve months prior to the survey. This thirst for knowledge has created a massive opportunity for writers and educators.

Whether it is a script for a video, the manuscript for a how-to article or book, or text of an email-based course, someone has to write the copy. That someone can be you.

You can write about what you know and turn your skills into cash. You can team up with an expert or educator and help them turn their classroom experience into a more fixed format.

This course will show you how. It will take you step-by-step through the process. By the end you will have written either a how-to-do-it article, a short instructional video script, or a print lesson for a course. The process is similar for each.

What you will learn:
- How to get saleable project ideas
- Objectives and Outcomes: The Starting Point in the Planning Process
- Eating the Elephant: Dividing your Topic into Bite-Sized pieces
- K.I.S.S.: Escaping the "Literary" Style Trap
- How to How-To: Organizing the How-to-Do-It Article
- Booked and Printed: Writing the Short How-to-Do-It E-book
- Lights, Camera, How-To: Creating and Publishing How-to Videos
- The Virtual Classroom 1: Types of Online Courses and Students
- The Virtual Classroom 2: Lessons and Homework
- The Virtual Classroom 3: Third-Party Teaching Venues
