While designing an online course requires a lot of effort from recording videos, sections of lectures to sub-sections of lectures along with numerous tasks, revision exercises, and assignments here is a piece of good news that master class is not about recording numerous lectures.  And this is somewhere the load gets reduced. 


Therefore while framing both an online course and a master class you just need to give an outline of your course but not a detailed one you may segregate this task into:  What and How.


WHAT: In this part, you can describe what you are going to teach In this online course or your master class.  Breaking down lessons into short programs,  describing the outlines, highlighting the key areas to focus upon and other details will surely help you to create not only an engaging online course but also a super engaging master class.

While designing or structuring your online course you have the liberty to stretch the time frame of the lessons, or the course contents into various sections and subsections to make the learning easier and fun for your learner but as mentioned earlier masterclasses are not the same. Therefore, masterclasses are just another way to make the learner get the basics back in their hands but in a very condensed time frame and this is what becomes quite challenging. 


PRO- TIP- Structuring your course highlights in a structured way by using simple and real-life examples can work wonders for both your masterclass as well as your online course. 

For instance, involving a real-life example or real-life activity while you’re teaching is another great way to keep the learners engaged.  For example, if you are speaking or a mental health coach then involving an activity that persuades the learner to work upon his or her speaking skills and improves his or her mental well-being by not only conversing to himself but also with other people in the society and this will help you in effectively help to achieve your target. 


Involving a real-life example or real-life activity can help you frame a quick and easy understanding of the concept you are teaching in your course such as mentioned above will ultimately help you create an engaging masterclass. 


  1. Connect With Your Learners

Lastly, the C in the ABCs stands for connecting with your learners.

And here we have the final step and here you have to remember that your job is not only to communicate about the content that your course holds but also you need to eliminate the gap between your course content and your learner. And the only possible way to do this is by bridging the gap between the course content and the learner and this can be only possible through communications and conversations. 

Your online course or master class will not only revolve around communicating the knowledge your course holds but also creating conversations and building communication.  Conversations are not enough but listening to the conversations and the honest feedback from your learners is also important especially when it is your first master class. 


Structuring your online course into a masterclass is definitely not an easy task but listening to the opinions of the learners with an open mind can help you in improving your teaching in the future.  Even if there is any criticism, taking this is an opportunity to solve a problem. 


Organising and structuring a master class totally carries a lot of work but to make it simpler they can be cut down the task into smaller tasks and approaching each task through proper planning and mindful strategy will not only help you boost your reputation as an Edupreneur but also it will be truly appreciated by learners as well.
