At Caribbean Virtual Assistants, we enjoy creating courses. We also enjoy helping others create courses.

If you’ve ever thought about hiring a Virtual Assistant to help you create your course, you’ve landed in the right place. In this blog post, we discuss how a VA can support you.

To best explain this, we will use the four steps in our course creation process:

Decide – What course to create? Who’s the audience? How to deliver the course?

Design – What are your learning outcomes? How many lessons? What learning supports will be included?

Develop – What content should you write for your online course? How about your slides, worksheets, assessments?

Deliver – Setting up the course to deliver to your audience


A Virtual Assistant can help you brainstorm your course topic idea.

  1. Research: Virtual assistants can help course creators conduct research on their course topic. This may involve finding keywords, relevant articles, studies, or other resources that can be used to develop course content.
  2. Research similar courses for titles, pricing, and course details.
