Only a couple of weeks before launching the King or Lamb, I would like to share few reasons that why I created this course while a part of my target audience who are writers and authors are more likely to read books instead of discovering via an online course?
The course contains a collection of different knowledge, measures and practices to help content creators and authors protect their royalty, authorship, social reputation and copyright while they create a self-sustaining influence.
The King or Lamb Copyright & Authorship Course includes:
- Legal Information specific to the online content and new concepts of IP, it also teaches easy technical measures for making your content synchronized with the web and mobile and amplify your word through social media.
- The course also helps the content creators to attach a set of valid digital mark ups and authorship tags to their content in order to prevent content theft and to minimize the risk of any copyright claims against them.
- It is an online course including information related to copyright laws(General and DMCA) , web editorial, SEO, Social Media Applications, Microformats, Feed and content syndication, yet all the interested participants including writers, editors, journalists, bloggers and marketers can easily take this course without any technical or programming background.More details about this course.
Back to the Post Title:
The King or Lamb is important to me, because its my first course being launched as a part of “Social Privacy” project. Through this project in next few month I’m going to launch a set of unique and practical courses targeting topics such as Authorship, Social Influence, Web Applications and Tutorials etc.
Since I believe our generation is the first generation ever that faces the effects and impacts of Internet, the social web and a new way of communication. We need to use the same technology to learn and get adapted to all the frequent changes and to obtain all the necessary knowledge we need.
After over ten years experience of practicing business online, creating and establishing different online and printed media and over 40 websites, during the last two years I was somehow forced to do nothing else and dedicate all my time learning and trying every site, tool, apps and information I could find and track about social media, its applications and impacts.
I had few options in the ways that I could practice, share and utilize what I learned through out the years. First choice is to launch one or more projects to become a start-up, second option was to publish a book, the third option was to teach. Sharing as a hint; getting a job and employment has never been an option for me.
I did not write a book because a book in general is a media that’s been created back in the ancient history soon after the stone age, and it’s been the best way of sharing knowledge and thoughts throughout the history, let me remark it again “the History”, How about now?
Books are still an applicable form of sharing knowledge in many fields, in my opinion writing a book about social media would only be an effort for documenting what’s happened during the first decade of the social web.
Any book including some common eBook formats are soon getting out of date and less useful, and they only contain text and images, it’s not really a proper way to share knowledge and specially tutorials about the sites, systems, apps and every other thing which is constantly changes and evolves.
I had deep research on different methods, platforms and formats for publishing or self-publishing books and eBooks, I’ve written few articles about “How To” & methods of publishing books I may even launch a course sharing my approach to creating and marketing eBooks and publications methods, but honestly I don’t see a way that a book can be used to teach many things related to social media and its applications.
Yet there are many people who are adopted to books more than recent information canvases, so writing and publishing a book about social web or apps may be commercially feasible but can’t be the best practice, technically.
I did not choose to launch a start-up mostly because where I’m located, start-up founders or angel investors, and the necessary legal framework don’t exists. Yet instead of launching a project with high development cost I decided to launch a start-up with few different cross-related products and services and a deep focus on education because I love it, and the rapid growth of internet users and their needs makes me feel it’s never too late to start.
Yet the courses that are being offered are designed in a way that regular updates are possible with less time and resource and despite many book formats, the courses contain both multi-media and interacting sections. The online courses can contain more information and learning tools in compare with books and the course itself is a socializing platform with all the benefits of social learning.
Well, based on all I shared above the King or Lamb is important to me, there are few more points about the King or Lamb and other plans that I’ll write in next posts.
