Course Tracker (spreadsheet template)

As you go through this course, you're gonna realize, oh my gosh, there's these other skills that I want to learn, and you may want to take other courses naturally. I don't think 1 course you can realistically expect to teach you everything in the whole world. So if you like taking courses. So I wanna give you a tool to track your courses. I mean, I don't care if you take more courses from me, but chances are you're gonna take courses at some point in your life again.
And this tool can really help you a lot. It's my course tracking tool. So let me go ahead and show you this. Some of you really this might be might be worth price of admission because it'll it'll help you remember where you where to access your courses over the years. Right?
So once you get here, you know, basically, either if you if you see a use template I'm sorry. I I apologize. I think the link okay. The the link might look something like this. You you you know, you use template.
If you see a link that looks like this, the share, just click file and make a copy. Click file and make a copy. You see it in this format. If you see it as use template, just click on use template and it'll make a private copy for yourself that ends up looking like this and then you can rename it as, you know, you know, a dashes. I'm looking at the darsh here in in the zoom, in the in the chat, or Guillaume's course tracking.
Right? Okay. And then click on the course tracker tab at the bottom once you make your own copy. Course tracker tab. Click on that tab at the very bottom screen.
And here is where you start to track the courses that you're taking, whether it's from me or from other people. Let's say I'm taking a course about relationships. Okay. Relationships. Okay.
Great. And the course name is how to get your partner to listen finally. A secret is to listen better to them. Right? Anyway, so clearly, let's say I'm taking that course, the status.
Okay. If you move your mouse over these things, you know, you you you can see what the notes are I'm just giving you some suggested scoring. So 0 considered and 1 enrolled, 2 in progress, 3 completed. So, obviously, I've enrolled in the course. I haven't taken it yet.
How urgent is it? Important. Really important too is somewhat important. Blah blah blah. So it's really important right now.
I need to I need to take this yesterday. Date of completion. Okay. I didn't have them completed the course. But let's say I've completed the course and it's now, you know, February 13, right, right in time for Valentine's Day or something like that.
I took it then. And then rating of the course, you know, from negative 1 to life changing is a 3 it's up to you. How you how you wanna score these things? The price of the course since it was a hundred and 50 or something creator, some, you know, Susan Jones or whatever. Okay?
Some relationship coach. And then the access link. So this is really useful because then you'll be able to, like, go, okay, how do I access that course again? Next time you you get the access link. You come into this course tracker.
You put it in there. And so for example, I've done you the favor of putting the this course is tracking link. Right there. So you can click on that and that'll bring you right to this course itself. Right?
So that's really useful. And then student group, maybe there's a forum or a Facebook group or something like that. You can put the link in there. And then what is your next step for the course? Okay.
I I need to I'm at, you know, watch module 3. That's my next step. You know, I've gotten modules wanting to in my bet. Main takeaways from the course. Gosh, even imagine you just took, like, even if you took 3 bullet points, in over the years, you'll be coming back to this goal, you have that course.
Here's the main 3 things learn. You can always add more by inserting AAA note or a comment to yourself to to you can type in in a note as much as you want. You can type paragraph after paragraph to paragraph after paragraph. Right? And and then in the notes by dragging, you know, dragging the bottom.
Right? And then finally, additional notes that you wanted, anyway. Just so I hope this is useful for you. I hope that you will make use of this and save yourself lots of angst trying to find course links in the future.

i have been using my own spreadsheet course tracker (although with fewer details than George's version) and got excited to know George is doing this as well! πŸ˜€. (it's such a behind-the-scene activity that I never talked about my own tracker with any other soul.)

This is a great idea. It saved to my personal google docs, rather than my business docs. Wondering about organization of these things.
