I want to be great at presentations, and I want to be taught by the best. That would probably mean getting in touch with Garr Reynolds and asking if he could give me a few lessons.
It’s unlikely to happen
But what if I found 19 others that wanted to be great at presentations and were willing to pay £30 ($60) an hour for his time? Now we’re starting to get somewhere. £600 ($1200) isn’t bad for an hour’s work, and we would get a personal teaching experience that is cheaper, more effective and in smaller groups than the average University lecture.
It’s a bargain.
If it’s easier to find the best for anything worth learning, and it’s easier to connect with others that also want to learn, then it should be dead-easy to make this work. Brian Clark does this well with Teaching Sells, he’s ahead of the curve. I think more will follow. Giving online classes will be the next evolution of teaching.
Teaching institutions should be worried. If we can unbundle degrees block by block, and find the best to teach us each block, I think we will.
