The quality of your course is not in how you sound,
but what you have to say!
Whether this is your first online course of the sixth, whether you have a recording studio in your backyard or just using your phone, whether you have a booming radiophonic voice or speak in authentic down-to-earth manner... Your passion for your subject is what we, and your learners, want to hear.
For truly world-changing online courses, engage with your audience and get their support before you go live.
You have important lessons to share with others, but your time is precious. You want to know what your audience wants and be rewarded for it early. We're here to take down any barriers between you and getting your voice out there.
“AVID’s presell feature makes it really easy for us to test out course ideas before doing a lot of upfront work.
Think Kickstarter for courses. It’s brilliant!”
"AVID provided us with a new avenue to deliver our content. Up until now, we have shared content using videos and written materials, but we did not have a way to share our information via audio. Their platform is user-friendly, and their support team was on the ball, helping us get up and running quickly!"
"Video courses seemed very time consuming, so it was a no brainer for me to create an audio course. The AVID team helped me transition from a podcaster to a course creator. If you think that audio is the future, create a course with them and be part of the audio revolution."
"If you're a podcaster and have something to teach, AVID is the best way to turn your content into an amazing online course. It's a perfect way to monetize your work while keeping full creative control."
"AVID made creating and executing an audio course a pleasure. And working with them proved to be a great way to develop content that can be used for other purposes, like the basis of a book, or vice versa."
We believe that online courses are one of the best ways to help people better themselves and better the world. So for this challenge, we will give very special consideration to courses about environmental causes, social justice and personal wellbeing. Anything from sustainable living, sharing economy, gender and racial equality, mental health and healthy diet. If you can help people live better and contribute to a better world - we want to hear from you.

"Do I need a high quality microphone or professional audio recording gear?"
Nope. What you've got in your mind is more important than any equipment. Let us worry about the tech while you get excited about sharing your knowledge.
"Do I need a great voice to make a great course?"
If you're passionate about what you're teaching and care about your learners, then you already have a great voice. The quality of your course is not in how you sound, but what you have to say.
"Do I need any previous experience teaching or creating courses?"
No - you're ready now. The AVID team will coach you through the entire process, and before you know it you'll have a course to be proud of.
