In the second part of the course, you will apply what you have learned to creating your own ‘demo’ course on WizIQ. The course facilitators will first show you how to use the virtual classroom and course creation software. They will then guide you in developing a plan to run, market, and manage your course. Finally, you will have the opportunity to present your course to your peers.
Participants who successfully create and present their demo courses will receive Certificates of Completion for Build Your Teaching Business Online.
