Hi, guys. Welcome to your cyber recreate er on boarding. In today's video, we're going to do an overview of the course creation process, so give you a road map of what to expect as you're creating your course for Sai Buri.
So before you start on boarding, you will need to have signed a contract. As an instructor, I know that you've done that because you're here, so the best homework assignments are the ones that do themselves. You've done that part, you need to have a course selected. So I'm assuming at this point
that you have an idea of what topic you want to teach and what that course is starting to look like. Even if it's a little bit nebulous in your mind.
This on boarding will be going concurrently with your course production process. So as long as you have a course selected, we can all work towards your completion. You're also going to need to be awesome and have a deep knowledge in your topic area. Your on boarding does not diminish your expertise in your topic area.
This program is to help support you and becoming the very best cyber a creator you can bait.
So before we go into much more. My name is Catherine MacGyver. I am one of your fellow instructors. I have been teaching for Sai Buri for a couple of years now, and I teach the lean six Sigma on the process improvement courses. With that, I am excited to get to know you and work with you
as we work towards getting your courses completed.
So you're welcome to always reach out to me on discord. I'm at Catherine. I welcome any pings conversations, random thoughts. So please don't be a stranger when it comes to talking to me.
So as we go through this on boarding, we're gonna talk about quite a few creative resource. Is that air available? However, there are five that are really important
for you to reference throughout your course creation process. So the 1st 1 is your instructor course production guide. You're going to need this when you get to recording. This is going to go over some production details
to ensure that your recordings are the highest quality possible. The next one is your cyber a course document resource. This is going to be kind of your glossary of resource is available. So if you have a question about what you should be looking at,
this will be a great place to get you started. The next one is going to be your most immediate one. This is the Cyberia syllabus template.
So this is going to be the first thing that you do. Once you finish watching these videos on getting started, your next one is going to be your cyber slide template. So this is actually a template, as you can see from the background for Power Point or Google slides,
that ensures that we have some consistency throughout the course for the students. So it's important that the back of own information is consistent, which gives you the opportunity
to be as creative and innovative as possible when you're teaching your topic, and then the last one is your video course content rubric. This is going to be when you get to beta testing your course. So all of your modules aren't recorded and we're having our beta testers look over. This is how they grade or assess your course modules.
This will tell you exactly what they're looking for,
and then when you all go back and ask for a little bit of adjustment on those modules, so it gives you an idea of what's to come. But right now, the most important document for you to think about is your syllabus template, and we'll go through how to find all of these. Resource is in a couple of lessons,
So this on boarding is for Sai Buri creators. There's a lot of really good information in here about creating online training, but there was quite a bit of cyber specific information, so just keep that in mind. That's for use, especially borrow what you need for anything else you're working on. But really remember, this is focused on cyber reprocess.
So in today's video, we're going to do, ah, high level overview of what you'll be doing. I want to show you the road map of what course creation looks like and what those major milestone start stones were also going to do in the introduction to the course creation process.
So again, that idea of what's coming
before we drill into more specific details and then I want you to finish this with an understanding of the course creation process. So at any point in time, you can say OK, this is where I am. This is what's coming next.
So first, let me be the first probably second or third person to congratulate you on joining this. You are joining the leading community for cybersecurity and I t professionals. And if that doesn't resonate with you on Lee, 5% of people who apply to be creators are selected as instructors.
So that puts you in the 95th percentile, which I think is pretty exciting.
So we're going to go through a couple of terms just to make sure you and I are on the same page as we're talking through this on boarding. So the 1st 1 course creation that start to finish when we say you create a course, you go from syllabus and course idea all the way to a published course content.
This is going to be the actual documents or the words
where the collateral this will be your power points. Lesson outlines if you're if you're doing if you're not using power point. But you have some content that are going into videos like Show and tells this will not have the videos to the course content is creating that information before doing recording your module. This is going to be a major section in your course.
So we you know what your modules are Because they're broken out in your syllabus, your lessons,
individual sections within those modules. So we are working on the getting and started module, and we're doing the lesson overview of course, creation recordings. This is gonna be your content with the video. So this is going to be where we're start thinking about things like a V quality in your rubric. This is how we're assessing it
for our beta testing. So when I say check your rubric, I am talking about the video rubric document we mentioned a couple of slides ago.
So this is what course creation looks like. So the first thing you've done, you've joined the cyber community. At some point, we will tell you to pop in and say hello and introduce yourself on discord. The next major milestone for you
is going to be creating the course syllabus. So that's going to be what you and I will talk about when we do our on boarding call. Um, and then that's going to kind of frame the rest of the course for you.
Your next major milestone is your course content. So this is going to be what are you actually going to be teaching? There will be some reviews on this, so we'll make sure we have some checkpoints. So everybody's in alignment on what's going on, and then we'll move into recording the course. This is when you create the videos.
So this is going to be the exciting and slightly nerve wracking part. But this is going to give you a sense of what your course will actually look like when it's finished,
and then we're gonna publish your course. We're done and your courses out there and available for the students. So think about this. You have five major chunks you've completed one. We're going to move into completing the 2nd 1 before you get to the heavy duty lifting in your course creation process.
So what does this actually mean for you? When we talk about these major milestones, we know that they're done because there are delivery. Bols, there are things that you are going to work with. Your cyber a team on to show that there, there were going to make sure that we're all working in the same direction and that we all understand what's going on with each other.
So lots of communication will talk a little bit more about being effective in your course creation
in a couple of modules. But what you need to think about his major milestones very much like any major project that you've worked on. This is how you know you're progressing because you have completed these things. So all of this is centered around making sure that we set you up to be successful in creating your course, you will receive a cyber, a team
who will be able to support you and answer questions along the way.
But as you think about creating a course, you do need to have a variety of skill sets, which is why we're providing you with your instructor training. So these modules, right now, we want you to be able to use your templates because not necessary, because some people need that kind of visual framework to help create their content.
And then you have an entire community
to draw from both your creator community, your Sai Buri team, where you can get ideas and get support. So this is all focused on making sure that you're successful and publishing your courses.
So with that today we went over welcoming you to the team and the Sai Buri community. I am personally very happy to meet you. We did a high level overview of the course creation process. So you know that there are five major step
Epson. You finished one of them, but you have four more to go. We also did an introduction to the resource is available. You know that there is going to be a team
for your support and that there are also a wide variety of resource is that can help you if you want to work on your own or when you do your work. So with that, I'm going to pass you off to Ken Underhill, one of our master instructor who's going to tell you what it's like to be an instructor for Sai Buri.
