The Thing About Sketchnoters

Sketchnote Enthusiasts - Build an online course with sketchnotes, verbal to visual, doug neill

Here’s something that I’ve noticed about the people who become enthusiastic about sketchnoting:

  • Lifelong Learners & Makers

    They’re eager to continue building their visual thinking skills and use those skills in new ways.

  • Skills & Experience

    They’ve already got experience and skills in some other field.

  • Passion

    They’re passionate about the work they do in that field and the impact that it has on the world.

  • Generosity

    They want to share that passion with others.

What I’m presenting here is an opportunity for you to bring all of those things together to create an engaging and transformative online course that others will benefit from.

How Sketchnotes Can Help

How To Use Sketchnoting - Build an online course with sketchnotes, verbal to visual, doug neill

Here’s how sketchnoting will help you throughout the process of building an online course:

  • Course Development

    Use sketchnotes to help research, plan, and create buzz about your course by sharing your work as you go.

  • Lesson Delivery

    Create visual hooks within your lessons to more efficiently and effectively share your ideas.

  • Student Action

    Create engaging printable activities to anchor the actions that you encourage your students to take.

Your Instructor

My name is Doug Neill, and here’s a bit of my background:

  • As an undergraduate at Willamette University in Oregon I studied Physics and Spanish, spent a year living abroad, and discovered how much I loved learning and teaching.
  • In 2011 I received a Master of Arts in Teaching from Pacific University, with secondary certifications in Math, Science, and ESL.
  • That same year I got pulled into the world of visual thinking and documented my skill development over at The Graphic Recorder. That work led to freelance sketchnoting gigs with Nike, Concordia University, the radio program On Being, and author Chris Guillebeau, among others.
  • I launched Verbal To Visual in 2013 to help others develop their sketchnoting skills, and have built six courses to date, each of which focuses on a different application of this skill.

In addition to learning from my  past experience, you’ll also get to see me and a few friends of mine each develop an entirely new course from scratch, and have conversations each week about how it’s going.

December 2018 Update

I first delivered this course via live webinar workshops. In each of those recorded webinars you’ll get to watch real, unfiltered conversations about our struggles, our excitement, and each of our approaches to building an online course using sketchnotes.

But we’re not stopping at those recorded webinar workshops.

I’m now in the process of refining all of the lessons, creating sketchnote videos for each unit, and developing printable activities to help you take action on the ideas shared.

February 2019 Update

It’s time to start releasing the final lessons! Here’s a timeline that shows you when each unit will go live:

Here are the release dates for the five units of this new resource.
