Know you need to create group learning products so you can leverage your time?
Need to confirm yourself as the go-to expert in your niche, with a range of online learning resources?
Ready to create needs based training that exceeds expectations?
Want to get it right the first time?
If the answer is yes, then let me explain why the
'Product Development' stage of Learning Resources Development is ESSENTIAL...
(Otherwise, you may be on the wrong page because it sounds like reinventing the wheel for every client, scrambling to find the most updated resources every time you have to train someone, knowing your learning resources don't reflect the kind of professional you are, and driving yourself round the bend trying to figure it all out yourself are favourite pass-times of yours....)
What specifically is included in this course?
There is an introductory lesson (which is free below, no sign up required!), followed by 3 full lessons complete with tutorials, matching podcasts and worksheets. There is also a bonus guest interview with a copywriter.
Find out exactly whether you need each one, and follow specific links to the pre-reading materials which will give you a sneak peak into each of the lessons. If your interest isn't piqued by the introductory module embedded below, this course may not be for you!
You will learn how to...
(click on each lesson for more information)
Introduction: recognise the (avoidable) pitfalls associated with not creating a needs based, client centred resource that has clear expectations (you can access this lesson free, no sign up required, further down the page. If the Introduction doesn't 'grab' you, this course may not be for you!).
Lesson 2: design content that will appeal to the broadest range of clients, by catering for various learning styles and multiple intelligences.
Lesson 3: design a learning experience that sets clear expectations, and minimises refund requests and complaints.
Lesson 4: communicate with your clients in language that resonates with them specifically.
Do you really need to be Developing Outcomes Based Products?
Outcomes based product development is about creating products that work so well, that your clients go away raving about the success they've had working with you. It's all about knowing the NEEDS of your clients, how they are best going to DIGEST, LEARN and APPLY that information, and then designing a product or service that seriously gets results.
If you don't do this?
In a nutshell, they'll be telling others about you for all the wrong reasons! When you fail to really identify your client needs, the different ways people learn, and the exact expectations around the full user experience, you open yourself up to refund requests, mismatched expectations and a minefield of 'but I thought I was getting X' type complaints.
Be prepared. Be prepared to create a learning experience that gets raving reviews, touts you as a life changing expert and truly changes lives. Plan it properly and get it right the first time.

What people are saying after working with Maria:
Just a quick note, prompted by your newsletter, to let you know where the work you did with me has gone… this week your awesome planning tools were used to create a workshop for at-risk youth, helping them understand anxiety and depression so they can be empowered to disrupt the symptoms. Following your framework, Maria, led to 93% of these young people feeling they would handle the symptoms better in the future, and the youth coordinator said she’d never seen a better program. She was over the moon ♥
It was a group project for my tafe program (I’m switching careers, and doing a double-diploma in community services and counselling!) and there were many things that went into the success of the program (like amazing teammates) but Maria, I’m so grateful that I had worked with you and could push to build a workshop that focused on applied experience to cement demonstration and explanation. The effect on the students was massive, better than we could have hoped for. Our lecturer is falling over herself with compliments, and there’s talk of rolling the program out on a wider scale. Astounding!
So thank you. You’re an awesome educator, Maria, and an inspiration. I’m so pleased to know you =D
Maria, thank you! Working with you has been so much fun and so productive!
The way your brain can take complex information (also known as the 20 years of theory and experience in my head!) and turn it into a structure that makes total sense, is phenomenal. That you can then turn this into a visual blows my mind! Oh and you did this in what, three sessions? Amazing!
Through what you’ve taught me, I’ve been able to nail a structure for my coaching practice and the online programs I’m creating. I feel incredibly confident now that I’ll be able to share my knowledge and experience in a way that will truly inspire and help others.
Thank you, with all of my heart! You are brilliant and I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to do the 4 PILLARS e-Course and work one-to-one with you.

The beauty of learning online is that you can find the ideal content for what you want to learn. I’ve taken many courses online, some have been great, some have sucked. This is also how I reach my ideal clients. Working with Maria was amazing because she shows you how adults learn, how to set expectations for your learner then lead them through your programs and content.
Maria demonstrates everything she talks about in her 4-PILLARS program. This program gives you a very clear understanding on how to consider your learner’s and client’s needs in the structure and delivery of your content.
I went to Maria because I didn’t want to leave clients with the experiences I was having. Even if the content was great, if the delivery isn’t how I learn or if the content was just thrown out there without consideration for my time as a learner, I let it go and moved on to something else.
I have referred many people to Maria that are delivering any part of their business through online content. The beauty of her program is that it isn’t just suited for online content but for in-person delivery as well. It’s such a shame to see really great content that falls dramatically short in structure and delivery.
If you are serious about your clients, about how they learn, about getting the full experience of what you are delivering, about getting their money’s worth, about engaging in your content instead of it sitting there doing nothing, you must work with Maria. Her expertise is second to none.
I guess it's always the doubt or wonder whether a person can do what they actually say they are going to do. When I first called Maria, I had so much in my head, it was so loud, confused and just ready to explode!! I judged that what was in my head was too enormous for any one person to be able to manipulate and get specific with or actually make any sense of, after talking with Maria the first time, a light actually did ignite within me, that she possibly could be the real deal and do what she promised.
After our first session and even doing the courses. Maria absolutely delivers on what she promises!! That light that ignited is turning into a raving fire!! I am sooooo elated with joy that she is resolving my enormous head giants, slaying them with her wit and practical knowledge of how to! I love it so much, I'm bursting #heartburnnnnn
Maria's really easy to work with. No matter how much of a nut I think of myself, she's have never made me feel that way. Rather, I feel more confident and empowered to be able to actually do the job because of her guidance and support. I love how she cuts out all the nonsense and is so transparent - in a way that our businesses can serve with authenticity and genuine integrity. So thank you Maria !! I couldn't have done this without you.

Maria has this uncanny knack of helping your brain make sense of a ton of information. The time I spent in her group workshop was just what I needed to re-set my systemisation skills and help me continue to pull together all the stuff inside my head into a usable format. Maria is the person to go to help you get your ducks in a row so that you’re ready to chunk and package your know-how into something that works. Plus, she is great fun to work with and is so generous with her help and support. Thanks Maria.

How did you feel before your session?
I was excited, keen to get a framework set up so I could build my workshops. I understood all the theory of the 4 PILLARS and had a mindmap, but didn't know where to start to build the framework.
How did you feel after your session?
Exhausted lol there's just so much more to create a valuable learning experience than I had imagined!! But I felt deeply satisfied as well, because I know now that what I'm going to produce will be worth it.
Working with Maria saw all my ideas for my workshop series come together in a clear, practical plan. The details required to set the foundations of my workshops were beyond anything I could have created on my own. She was warm, encouraging, clear, and challenged my thoughts. I left the session feeling confident and ready to create a valuable learning experience for my clients.
Coach and Author of "My Great Idea"
SOOOO excited! I've just completed the theory in the 4 PILLARS e-Course and am now jumping in to create my own course(s) - to help people worldwide relocate and resettle in a healthy and happy way.
Maria, I'm so very impressed with the course you've created, it's an awesome mix of rock solid content with engaging delivery. I reached the end (not always the case with previous online courses I've committed to). And I'm going back for more! This is coming from a girl who was dragging her feet in creating an online course - just a few weeks ago it was a 'should' in my mind, now it's becoming an exciting reality. If the result is even a fraction how good 4 PILLLARS is, I'll be thrilled!

How were you feeling before you got the Course Review?
It was the fear of the unknown. Let’s face it, our businesses are our babies, so it’s hard to have someone review our programs and courses when you’ve poured your heart and soul into them. Knowing the sheer size of my program, I was a little intimidated by the changes I may have to make.
I know my program content and quality is amazing – BUT there’s ALWAYS room for improvement. I knew Maria’s background and experience in education, I’ve seen her passion first hand (I knew she really knew her stuff). AND I knew my program would be in “nothing but the best” hands having Maria reviewing it.
What's the value that you've gotten out of the Review?
Maria’s experience and authority in education shines through in a massive way. Anyone who wants to take their program or course to the next level, is super passionate about helping their clients succeed … I’d say “jump in feet first”… don’t hesitate … It’s so worth it.
Thanks Maria, YOU ROCK!

You should be telling the world about what you do Maria. I held on to my ecourseidea for almost a year.

Quit The Cubicle
I've known Maria for over a decade now and she is my go-to person for no bullshit clear and constructive advice. She is extremely intuitive when it comes to recognising what you need and how you can best move forward, and because of this she can give you clearly defined steps to take and well-defined reasons for taking them. She creates a safe space for you to talk about the things which are really holding you back and then helps you to uncover the answers for yourself and act on them. I can't recommend her enough.
