Bite-Sized Modules Create a Distilled and Actionable Course (Gayle Van Gils)

  • Episode #7

On this episode of Course Lab, Danny and Abe discuss Gayle’s online course, “Smart Tips: Wellness,” which teaches people how to infuse awareness into every aspect of wellness through short and topic-focused standalone videos. Her unique course architecture and Smart Tips: Wellness format have proved remarkably successful, with a majority of students completing the whole course in one day. In this session, you’ll learn all the ins and outs of Gayle’s strategy for developing a course that students love to binge.

In this episode we discuss:

  • How the unique architecture of the course and the Smart Tips: Wellness format encourages students to consume in one day. 
  • What are the advantages and the trade-offs of going broad and wide as opposed to very narrow and deep? 
  • Why did Udemy reach out to her?
  • Danny and Abe’s debrief after the interview

“I learned to be quite succinct in what I was saying. I had to drill down to the core of the message. And then I drilled that even further to put it in the workbook for them.
