You've been watching other people create online courses for months. Meanwhile your unfinished course stares you down like a drunk stalker in a bar. 

I know. It's uncomfortable.

Well guess what? You're intelligent and you have marketable expertise. You can turn that expertise into an online course...but you don't have a roadmap. 

How about we combine your expertise with my roadmap so you can finally finish your course and get busy making sales?  

What is Jumpstart Your Course?

Jumpstart Your Course is a 6-week program that teaches you how to go from online course overwhelm to online course pro.

Unlike other courses, Jumpstart will teach you how to validate your topic and build a course that's focused on content--not just marketing fluff.

You'll also learn how to design your course for optimal learning results (without having to get a Masters in Instructional Design like me). 

If you're looking for a guide, Jumpstart Your Course is an interactive video-based roadmap designed to help you start--and finish--your online course.

After Jumpstart Your Course you'll be able to:

  •  Validate your course topic 
  •  Determine whether to run a pre-sale 
  •  Make sure your course delivers the results you promised (so you get raving fans)
  •  Outline your course content 
  •  Choose the best format for your content 
  •  Create your course content with less stress
  •  Conduct a beta test to get feedback

If you are thinking about building an online course I can't recommend Janelle enough. She helped me build my course, Therapy School. I didn't know what I didn't know. Now she's running her own online course. If I was starting again I would definitely sign up for Jumpstart.

I've just used the course planning resource and found it really useful. Thank you!

Janelle’s advice is proving invaluable as I complete my online course. I now feel confident that when I launch, I’ll be offering my audience a quality course that delivers on its promises. 

-Yoneco Evans

I'm so glad I found you. You focus on the students' experiences and real benefits. Other resources I've seen in the past year were all about sales with very little attention to the actual students.

--Debbie Lacy

About the Course Creator

Hi, I'm Janelle. My passion is helping people get better learning results from their online courses. Unlike other online course experts, my background is in Instructional Design, which means I study how adults learn and make courses based on those principles.

In 2009, I graduated with a Masters Degree in Instructional Technology from Georgia State University. For the past 8 years, I've worked as a Learning Designer, helping entrepreneurs, mid-size businesses and colleges create hundreds of online courses.

In addition to running Zen Courses, I also host The Zen Courses Show where I interview successful course creators. My mission is to help you create your course with less overwhelm.

Frequently Asked Questions


1. When does the course start and finish?

The course starts on March 14, 2017 and never ends! The content is dripped out each week over a 6 week period. We do this because each module builds on the prior one. 

2. How long do I have access to the course?

How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own. Plus, you'll get access to future updates for free.

3. Do I need a mailing list to take this course?

I won't lie to you: you'll get the most out of this course if you have a mailing list. If you aren't there right now, check out my free listbuilding course, First 500 Subscribers.

4. Does this course cover Instructional Design?

Yes. I’ll show you how to apply the basics of backwards design to create a course that gets results. We won't get into advanced strategies though. That'd be a whole course.

5. If I Change My Mind Can I Get a Refund?

We don’t offer refunds since you get all the materials but we will answer any questions you have to make sure it's the right fit if you email hello [at] zencourses [dot] co
