Then the teacher only needs to prepare the content of the lesson to be taught before the student makes an appointment.
As the students make class appointments, the teacher prepares the next teaching content before the class. When the teacher completes the process of bringing the group of students, the explanation part that needs to be recorded is completed.
But in the process of our one-to-one pitch correction course, because I kept posting progress and some publicity in the circle of friends, there are still more students who want to practice, but are more sensitive to price.
Obviously we have to continue a round of deductive reasoning, because new problems emerged in the first iteration, and we continue to analyze new pain points.
If the price is reduced to make a big class, everyone can get the audio of the explanation, and the audio correction service becomes one-on-one in the community, that is, one-to-one guidance for homework, then the course will change from a high-priced niche class to a It has become a low-cost public course, which is more in line with the requirements of our platform's finished courses.
Propose a new solution: So I made a new design for this course, and put forward new requirements for the teachers, and began to recruit students through the promotion of the circle of friends.
The course structure reorganizes the knowledge points from the previous 8 lessons in a month.
Restructured into a total of 20 lessons, 4 weeks of lectures, 5 sessions of practice every week, and weekly enrollment and paid groups.
The part of the practice assignments has been reduced compared to the one-on-one time, otherwise the one-to-one service of the community cannot be undertaken.
Some people must be asking why not sell 4-week courses at a time?
Think about our premise, in order to be cheap; there must be students who are not bad enough to buy every week, and there must be students who only buy the knowledge point they need the most; the split is fine enough to meet various needs and abilities. Accept students with different prices.
Teachers only need to record the lecture audio of the previous one-to-one course, adjust it according to the new course schedule and redesign the practice assignments.
This month, through the paid group to push the teacher to optimize the course structure and content in reverse, it is also making money.
After the end of this month, we feel that the content of the lecture has been perfected, so do students have nothing to do after learning? How did you learn? Does it need to be consolidated? Was the conclusion too hasty from the point of view of the integrity of the course? What's missing? This is a new problem. The reason for the problem is that the homework in the course is limited after all, and students do not have a lot of practice outside the course, which is not conducive to consolidating their learning results.
In order to solve this problem, we also need to take students for practical exercises.
So I continued to design a paid reading practice group. I did 8 sessions in total and produced 80 practice audios and materials; for each session, I would choose some English materials, such as The Economist and other magazines. It was very simple, and the teacher recorded it in advance. It is good to follow the audio of reading + explanation. After the group is opened, the materials will be sent to the group. The highlight is still the sound correction guidance.
In the end, the above continuous reading course has 20 main lectures, and 80 practical explanation exercises are attached, which country email list becomes a set of finished courses.
Course without the teacher's voice correction service, the price is not expensive. It is a simple course that has already gained a wave of good reputation in the early stage of the WeChat group service.
The evaluation of the students in the first wave of courses was completely used by me as a selling point for promoting self-study courses or consulting additional sound correction services in the later period.
In the end, this course evolved into an online class (you can go to self-study with purchase) + you can also pay for extra meals (if self-study is too hard, you can pay additional service fee for sound correction, and ask me to make an appointment with a teacher to help with sound correction).
