How to Plan and Create Contents for Beginners?

KISS - Keep It Simple Stupid.

This is the principle I use (and have been using) on creating courses or tutorials for beginners to learn programming (or any other things).

It is difficult to make courses/contents for Beginners or Professionals. What do you think? Let me know in comment.

For me, I think it's a bit tricky but you have to focus and give more time while creating contents for Beginners. Because, they are fragile and in the first phase of learning something new and are in search of great courses/resources.

And in this world of Internet Technology, there is no lack of such contents. You can find plenty on Google or YouTube or e-Learning Platforms or somewhere else.

But the real obstacle is to find one, that is simple and easy to understand (I faced this problem). If unfortunately they find/get involved in a tutorial that's a complex, difficult to understand or incomplete, or did not get support when they are stuck.
Then this might lead to the death of their curiosity and learning interest. Sometimes, it happens with me till these days.

And in the case of professionals or intermediates, they can sense/find the better courses or switch the content, if they don't like it.

How I plan and create Courses for Beginners?

As I said earlier, I follow the KISS principle. So, if there's a course I want to make but might be complex, then I break them down into simpler multiple courses.

This way, whenever they complete a course, they get excited to learn more and passionately the next one.

Some them became so interested that they completed the whole course in couple of days and some have even implemented the learning in real time and started their own companies.

In addition to the completion of the course passionately, they also need support. And if they do not get the assistance when they seek, then the interest to learn may fade away slowly and stop learning at the end as well.

So, I always try to support them via DM, email, blog posts or on YouTube comments and sometimes on Team Viewer, Zoom and Skype if possible.

And if you want to be better at learning, then help others to learn, teach them what you've learnt so far. Don't wait to be perfect. I haven't seen anyone perfect.

Perfectionism is an Illusion.

Even, Practice makes you Better, not perfect.

Here is an example of How I make courses and contents for Beginners. In this C# Desktop Application Mega Course, I've taught to create 3 different applications (1 upcoming) with different complexity levels.

In each series, the complexity increases gradually but the foundation (basics) remains the same. So whenever one completes a tutorials series and starts the new one, it makes them easier to understand the flow, structures and patters.

Everything seems familiar and helps them to learn new things (features) with ease and without knowing that they are learning a new thing.

Let's see how the course is broken down into smaller chunks

Note: All of these courses are FREE, so I'm not trying to sell you anything
