Before we begin content development, we'd like to take the time to introduce you to our process to ensure that your DataCamp experience and your content are as successful and enjoyable as possible.
Watch the following video to learn about:
- How to design great content (i.e., our content guidelines)
- What the process entails (i.e., design vs. implementation)
- How to do it (i.e., our authoring tool)
As seen in the diagram in the video, the content creation process is divided into 5 phases:
In this phase, we create a high-level curriculum roadmap outlining what topics and technologies we want to teach in a given timeframe.
Once we have the curriculum roadmap prioritized, we identify and partner with the best data science instructors in the world to help us build that content.
Once we find the best instructors, we work closely with them to create a detailed blueprint for each course, project, etc.
Once the design is ready, we support instructors throughout the content development (implementation) process, from blueprint to launch.
After content is launched, we work closely with our instructors to optimize content and improve our approach over time by using all available user data and feedback.
Who will I be working with?
During course creation, you will interact with the following three people at DataCamp:
- The Curriculum Lead (CL) at DataCamp who will work with the instructor during the course design phase.
- The Content Developer (CD) at DataCamp who will help the instructor write exercises, slides, and other content.
- The Content Quality Analyst (CQA) at DataCamp who will work with the instructor after his/her course is launched to maintain the course content and address learner issues as they arise.
