Second, I’m afraid I’ll portray the image that I don’t complete projects by the deadlines I set, which in my mind, means people who invested in the preorders don’t get the products in time. I’m afraid that you’ll think badly of me if I do the restructure.
But I still went ahead with it. The question is why.
To understand why I went ahead with the restructure, we have to talk about what the previous structure was.
The previous structure
The problem I noticed with most courses out there are:
- They assume some sort of knowledge which you might not have, which is why things go over your head
- Most courses cover only theory and not enough practical, which is why people don’t really know how to think like developers; they forget what they learned; and they don’t know how to apply what they learned.
I didn’t foresee this problem earlier because haven’t started writing the course yet. I discovered the problem when I was talking to the students who took the course. Once I discovered the problem, I knew I had to restructure, even if I can’t meet the July 2018 deadline.
Why I had to restructure
That’s why I restructured. That’s why I broke the 9 modules I wrote into simpler modules, shifted the practical lessons earlier, and rewrote the practical lessons so you can learn new things as you go along.
The lesson from this restructure process
If you run into a difficult decision, think about why the decision is difficult for you. For me, it’s a struggle between how people think of me and my gains versus how my students’ learning process.
Will enrollment still open in July 2018?
If you want to wait until the entire course gets completed before joining, you’ll have to wait till the following launch, which might be in 2019.
I also hope this video gives you a guide on how to reason out your difficult decisions.
