Results of the restructure11th May 2018
The results were excellent. It was worth spending a more than a month to restructure the contents I had. I cleaned up the modules (made them more concise) and placed them in an order that beginners can understand easily.
Here’s what the current structure looks like.
Then, we build some components.
Then, we go into more advanced basics, then build components; learn more basics, build more components; and so on.
This process works out really well.
Before the restructure, One student, Thomas, said that module 2 contained too much theory. He could understand the concepts but can’t see how a specific concept was useful.
Another student, Damian, said that every module in this course is a gem; and they have done wonders for his knowledge and confidence.
A lesson to share with you
When you make a decision, you always have a reason.
When you look back at this decision, you know you chose correctly if the results align with your reason.
Getting the structure down right is the most important part of all—even more important than completing the course.
That’s why I went back to restructure the course, and since students felt the new structure was helpful, I felt the time spent restructuring was worth it.
