Build an Online Course with Sketchnotes


Turn your passion and skills into a transformative educational experience for others.

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.

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.
