You can create different types of training within Wealthy Affiliate. These "types" include tutorial (text based) or video training. Depending on what type of training you are most comfortable with, you can choose accordingly.

How to Create Training

Step 1: Create New Training

To create a new training resource, you can either click the "Creating Training" button on themain Training page.

In the top right corner you will see a "Create New Training" button. Simply click that.

Or you can click the Actions => Create New Resource button when within ANY training resource (as shown below).

Step 2: Choose Resource Type

Upon clicking the the create training button, you will be presented with two training options, Tutorial or Video training. A tutorial is a text an image based training (like this one) and a video training resource is pretty self explanatory, a video that you have created teaching something.

Simply click the "image" of the type of training you want to create.

Step 3: Add the Training Details

Your next step is to enter the training resource details. These differ slightly based on the type of training resource that you create (tutorial versus video) so I will explain these independent of one another.

Tutorial Details

With a textual resource, you are required to create a title for the training resource, a description (I recommend at least 3 sentences), add a relevant image and add associated tags.

Your title should represent what your tutorial is about.

Your description should explain what your tutorial is going to talk about or explain.

Your image should be relevant to your training concept as this is the image that is posted beside your training throughout the Open Education Project.

Your tags should be the keywords associated with your training. This is also used for the search and each training page can have a maximum of 5 associated tags.

See the example of this below.

Video Settings

With a video resource, you are only required to create a title, upload the video and add some tags.

Your title should represent what your tutorial is about.

Your video upload should be maximum 50MB in size and should be either .flv or .mp4 format.

Your tags should be the keywords associated with your video. This is also used for the search and each training page can have a maximum of 5 associated tags.

Creating a Training Request

As mentioned in the last section, you can also create your training from a request. This goes through the same process where you can choose your type of training and you would build this out in the exact same way (based on the request criteria.

This is a great load of information. So, what is the difference between a training and a tutorial?

It feels good to be sharing the knowledge that we have acquired. And I hope that a lot more trainers will be developed from within WA.

Thanks a lot for this opportunity. More blessings to WA team and members!

Training/Tutorial is the exact same thing. As more and more people get educated, there will be more and more training added to the community. On any given week there are several new training modules rolled out.

Just created my first tutorial in answer to one of the training requests! =)
Sure feels good to pay the knowledge forward..
Kyle Premium Plus
Awesome, nice work! I am sure it will be helpful to many others within the community here!

Why not let jaaxy be in WAU? Those who are not members of WA would find it better to join WAU rather than pay $ 19 every month because they will find economic sense in joining WAU. By doing so, you would have increased the WAU community to your advantage. To me this makes a good business sense worth consindering.I would recommend that WAU community view be sought if possible. Thank you

It is a completely independent business with it's own costs (and they are quite extensive). At $19/mth it is the cheapest and most effective tool out there, however if you want to use the tool at WA here that is great as well as it utilizes the same data and it is very effective for finding keywords.

I quote - You can even let people externally (non-members) know about your training that you have created.
Q: How do I do this then?
Because the training isn't available to outside eyes or is it?
This is just what I needed to know Kyle.
Kyle Premium Plus
Not yet no (this functionality is in the works though). What you can do at this point is let people know about training they can get for FREE...treat it as a bonus, when they join WA for the free trial.

In other words, you could create a training resource and then let people know about it. Give them the link and tell them all they have to do to get it is sign-up for free (via your affiliate link obviously). :)
Neil Little Premium
Yes, I see now.
So the more you add, the more you can direct people to and so on.
Carson Premium Plus
Exactly Neil. The more training that you create, the more helpful content that you can direct people to. Soon this will be something that is very easy to do, but until we have this functionality available you can tell people on your website that when they can access Training Resource ________ if they join for free. very simple concept to direct people to quality content. Essentially, you're sharing quality content that people can access.

No better reason to tell people to join WA than offering them some specific training.

I'll send up a series of 3 videos and see if you boot them or not. John
Kyle Premium Plus
Cool, if they are original and are training, they should be good to go. :) Looking forward to checking them out John.
