Instructor Bio

We don’t need your whole resume but just a 150–500-word overview of your background or expertise in the subject matter being taught.  Please include a profile picture of at least 500 px X 500 px.  

Instructor profile

The instructor bio is important when learners are comparing your course with another. They want to learn more about you and determine whether you’re a credible instructor to teach the subject. Your instructor bio should reflect your:

Credibility

Let Learners want to know they can trust you. Highlight what makes you an expert in the materials you teach.

Empathy

Ability to connect with learners by sharing examples demonstrating how you learned the concepts you’re teaching to show them they’ll be able to relate to your course content.

Passion

Learners don’t want to learn from a boring instructor. Show your excitement about the subject.

Personality

Don’t hesitate to share things about your personal life. Add some fun facts about yourself or share your interests. Tell them about your goals, mission, or why you decided to teach this course.

Course Promotion Video

Create a short (under 2 minutes is ideal) course promotional video that learners can watch before they decide whether or not to enroll in your course.  You can also use your promotional video as a marketing tool and post it on other sites (like YouTube or LinkedIn) to drive traffic to your course on LMC Expert.

Creating a Preview For Your Course

A course preview is like a movie trailer for your course. It’s a video of two minutes or less on your course landing page that helps learners understand what you’ll teach and, most importantly, how you’ll teach it.

It should include:

First 15 Seconds
