11 Tips to Transform Your Online Fashion Courses

  1. Manage expectations up front by creating a welcome message or video. The aim of this is for students to get to know you.

If you're reading this post the chances are you have some knowledge, skill and experience working in the fashion sector. In this post, we're going to show you that no matter what that experience is, there's a course style that you can adopt to teach your subject online.


 

There are four principle course styles which we can identify. We’ll look at each one in more detail below but the four are: 

  • Reflection-based courses

When I was a kid growing up in a sleepy Cotswold village in the UK, I'd often hang out at the local playground or rec (a rec is the local playing field and recreation area for the community.) Or sometimes at a friend's house to play our latest records, which were vinyl by the way.

Wherever it was, hanging around with friends and with people who I had something in common with meant that conversations were had. We chatted about all manner of things from the problems we faced with...
