Creating a Course On Embodia Academy

Creating a course on Embodia Academy is a much easier task than you might believe. Your expertise and knowledge on the topic will carry you through to the end. Your course on Embodia Academy will help hundreds, even thousands of practitioners in Canada and around the world to improve patient care, and help physiotherapists throughout their career find success and develop professionally.

Your content is vital to the growth of the industry. But to create great content that helps others means paying attention to detail and giving your audience what they want. This could involve creating an engaging Powerpoint, using the right equipment to record your course (cameras, lighting, etc.), and speaking loudly, clearly, and in a way that hooks the attention of your intended audience.

Not paying attention to the details can risk the entirety of your course. If your video recording is dark or blurry - your audience will struggle to see you; if your audio is harsh or full of static, your audience may get frustrated and not take your course.

We are here to help! Embodia provides a suite of services to support you. As you will learn in this course, we assist instructors from beginning to end in creating their online course and beyond - including marketing, sales and customer support.
