Episode Info

Episode Info:

Conrad had a job consulting startups on how to grow their user base - something he learned with his own financial app first and then turned into a consulting career. He created a course about growth hacking just to generate leads but as that course kept making money he was forced to pay attention to the course business, creating teachable.com and applying the same growth advice he was giving out into his own venture; in this episode he talks about why free courses from MIT might not be as good as a paid course, paying attention to what platforms you use to keep control of your content, the future of online learning and how it’s going to spread knowledge all over the World, and the best and worst practices for course creation, mistakes that people make and how you can avoid them.
