Building an App using Glide

How many times have you sat with a client to discuss a project and they're convinced they need a course when, in fact, they don't? They need a 'just-in-time' solution for their users to access information when they need it.

It's helpful to know what different tools are available, so you can offer your clients different types of solutions that will change behaviour and fit their budget. One solution is an app. It's one we're all familiar with and have been using them for years.

Now before your internal voice says "yeah yeah, I can't make an app" hear me out! What if I told you that you could build an app from a Google Sheet with no coding and allow unlimited amounts of people to use it? In fact, The Learning Conference app was made with a Google Sheet!

In this hands-on session, I'll be giving you a stripped back copy of 'The Learning Conference' App and we'll be rebuilding it together from scratch using a free program called Glide Apps.

We'll review how the app was put together and how using components and filters brings the content to life. You'll customise your App by adding images, a colour scheme, a logo and you'll choose a theme. Finally, you'll set your Apps privacy settings and will publish it out to the web.

At the end of the session, you'll have a good understanding of the various components within Glide Apps and can continue to develop similar apps in your own time.

What you will take away from the session:

  • Why Apps are a great way to deliver 'just-in-time' learning
  • What makes a good App and how to chunk down your content
  • How to add content to your App
  • How to use relations to connect content informations in other parts of your App
  • How to add images and format your content
  • How to customise the colors, logo and theme
  • How to set up your privacy on your App

How to write the perfect proposal

Writing a winning Proposal isn't as hard as it sounds, especially when you know what you need to include.

In this session you'll be creating a proposal for a client. You'll see how to articulate your solution, highlight your skillset, showcase your work, estimate the timeline, price the investment, cover your butt with terms and conditions and advise the client what's next.

What you will take away from the session:

  • A draft of a kick ass proposal
  • Options to build proposals
  • What to include and leave out
  • How to cost appropriately
  • How to cover your butt.
