Podcast Your Course

Welcome

Your students are listening.

To podcasts. To audiobooks. To your videos (and not looking at the screen).

And they want to listen to you, where they're at...

Without the distractions of their entire computer.

Think about it...

They can walk their dog, visit a museum, drive to work, tune in on a plane, enjoy a road trip...all while learning from you!

In a nutshell: this product takes all your lessons and turns it into a private podcast feed for your students to import in their player of choice. The lessons play, in order, and will link back to the corresponding video content (depending on your course platform). Talk about easy!

If you're wondering who this is for...

It's for the teacher who has an amazing course. 

It's for the teacher who is launching soon and KNOWS they'll use this!

It's for the teacher who has an entire academy of content that they want at their students' fingertips.

The price for one course podcast feed is $197.

The price for up to 5 course feeds is $297.

You can stack the licenses if you want (10 courses = $594).

FAQ:

Is this private?

It's hidden from iTunes, Google, and only available to those you share the link with. If you want to see what it looks like, click on the "Try it Yourself!" module.

How does it work?

You'll receive an email with a link to your private Google Drive folder.

Upload your audio files, and complete the organizer spreadsheet with lesson titles and links.

Email us at hello@lindsaympadilla.com or just reply letting us know it's ready to go!

We'll get to work on building your podcast feed!

When that's all said and done, we'll send over the link for you to pass on to your students!

What if I don't have audio versions of my videos yet?

If you don't have audio versions of your lessons yet, don't worry, we thought of that!

We have a quick lesson on how to make them.

What do students need to do?

We have instructions for you to copy/paste to give your students. It's as simple as pasting a link in their podcast player.

What does tech support look like?

We are including access to a Facebook group. Remember, we're getting a BETA developed with YOUR input! You'll be able to tell us how your students are doing and what requests you have to make the process even easier. In short, we're here to get your feed to your students ASAP. And we'll do whatever it takes ;)

How many lessons are included in one course vs five courses or stacking multiple five-course packs?

One entire course. No limit on lessons. You're buying the podcast feed. 

Is this only for iTunes iOS?

No! It works for Android and iOS (and desktop)! Any podcast player that allows you to import a feed using a URL, which is most podcast players. Notably, Spotify and Stitcher don't allow this.

What included in a "course feed"? Am I buying one feed per course?

One feed per course ($197)...but...we have a deal for 5 course feeds at $297.

How would I buy more course feeds later on? Would it be at a different price point?!

It will change. We're going to launch the beta in a few months and we MAY offer lifetime again. Not sure though! The vision in the future is a monthly fee per feed, with a cap on students. Details on the next offer TBD.

Will this work for membership sites?

That's the NEXT iteration. We're funding it with this alpha version. If you lock in as an alpha member, you'll get lifetime to the next version of the product when it's released! We're launching the beta of the software hopefully in a few months, depending on dev time.

What’s the difference between just creating your own podcast feed and using this?

It's totally private. No one can find the podcast in iTunes or by Googling it :) Eventually, the beta will be a full fledged software that assigns a unique link to each student. When they are not supposed to get access anymore, their link will die. This alpha stage is super manual for us...but we're funding the dev for the beta.

What platform will be used for delivery for our members? Will it be crazy easy or through a proprietary app?

The delivery is through their podcast-player-of-choice. No proprietary app. We provide the podcast feed, which you pass along to your students. They put it in whichever app they'd like to use. We provide copy/paste instructions for you to give your students if they're unfamiliar with podcasts. The built-in iOS Podcasts app works just fine. Or Overcast. Or Podcast Addict on Android.

If someone defaults on payments, is there anyway to stop the feed for them? Or not really because it's already uploaded to their feed?

Not until the beta phase! That's what we need to develop. (It's the really tricky part!) But once the beta is ready, your original feed will die and each student will get a new link that's unique to them. We're thinking dev will take about 2 months. So, over the two months if people default, know that they will eventually lose access once the unique links roll out. And from then on, you'll have automatic link-killing upon defaulting payments or canceled memberships.

Are there time limits to each course that we would purchase?

No time limit. The purchase is per course. Number of lessons or length of time don't come into play.

Would I be able to host this in [Kajabi, MemberVault, Thinkific, ~your course platform here~]?

Yes! It's platform-independent. Think of this as more like Vimeo for your audio. It's something that hosts your content outside of your course platform. You pass along the podcast link to your students, and they put it in whichever podcast player they like.

Does one course feed equal one module or an entire course?

One course feed is an entire course: multiple modules and lessons.

How does adding licenses later work? Eg if I buy five now and need 2 more later, those will be monthly?

We have this initial offer available for a limited time. Buy as many as you would like. This is a lifetime license, so you can future-proof yourself by buying more now. Once this initial offer ends, we'll likely be moving to a monthly payment for future courses. Anything you buy in this initial offer will be honored after we release the next version; you will not have a monthly payment for those courses. If you add a course during the later offer, that will require a monthly charge.

I’m curious why you think a student would do a course as a podcast vs any other way? If they are gonna procrastinate won’t they procrastinate no matter what? I’m intrigued by this but not convinced it solves the problem.

Ooo... *cracks knuckles and flexes teacher muscles*. We see three issues that are fixed by a podcast version of your course.

  1. The screen: Right now, courses are expected to be consumed in a browser on a computer while watching a video. This requires the student to face the screen and not be distracted. On that screen is Slack, Messenger, Facebook, your inbox, all with little numbers in parentheses or red dots telling you to look there!
    • With a podcast, you're able to do the dishes, take a walk, drive your car, all while focusing on the audio. As long as you're not reading, you can listen to audio content and retain the information. The moment you read a Slack notification, your brain turns off the lesson and that information is lost. On your computer, it's just about impossible to avoid reading something while trying to learn.
  2. The mp3's: Some courses provide audio files in each lesson. You download them on your phone, but then what? Where do they go? Do they play in the correct order? And continue on to the next one when it's finished? And continue playing if you lock your screen? Maybe. But likely it's a disorganized mess of mp3 files with names like Mindset_Work_edited_final-v2.mp3 which comes after Closing_remarks.mp3. And then there's Module-5_Lesson-2.mp3 which was never updated after the course redesign and is now actually Lesson 4 from Module 3. No bueno.
    • The podcast feed is organized, in order, playing continually one lesson to the next. You can play through your car speakers, an Amazon Echo, anything that podcast players connect to. And they're intended to play while your phone is in your pocket while you're walking around doing something else. (But not reading notifications!)
  3. "Lesson Complete" indicators: We're strong proponents for Spiral Learning: "each time a student encounters the topic, the student expands their knowledge or improves their skill level," (reference, and a detailed article). Content should be encountered multiple times and in multiple ways. Each encounter makes a small dent in the brain and creates an attachment point for the next time they experience the content. Marking a lesson or module as "complete" trains the student to move on and never look at that content again.
    • Instead, if they binge your entire course in audio form, they see where you're taking them and what to expect, without the pressure of "completing" a worksheet or task that may hold them back from moving on. THEN they can go back and watch videos, with pen and paper, fully prepped to absorb what you're teaching and take action, all with the context of the larger course mission. The podcast feed is an easily accessible, low-pressure way to encounter your content, either for the first time, or fifth.
