Teaching doesn't have to suck
Hi there! I'm Kieran, a geek professor. I teach geek things, like programming, and website stuff.
Me in 2004: Teaching is so depressing. Students don't get the simplest things. What a waste of time. Feeling a little guilty, too. What if I'm part of the problem?
15-year training montage (Rocky music: do, do do do, doo do, do do doooo). Studying learning research. Designing new teaching work flows. Writing software to make the work flows work, and flow. Trying it. Improving. Trying it. Improving...
Me in 2019: Teaching doesn't suck. It's even kinda fun! Students actually learn how to do stuff. They see their time and money are well-spent. The teaching work flow is a well-oiled machine, that just runs. Ah! Life is good.
This website is about the software I made. It's called Skilling. It works well for me. Students love the courses I make with Skilling.
If you want to make cool courses, check it out. Reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have suggestions, questions, or good computer jokes.
Make websites for flipped and online skills courses
Skilling is open-source software for making and running skills courses. Skills are things like programming, auditing, and mathematics.
To make a good skills course, you need to think about tasks, content, and relationships.
Skilling helps you create effective courses
Here are some aspects of a good skills course. Skilling can help with all of them.
