The course is mostly video but there are also text instructions with each lesson. Most of the lessons are screen recordings of the feature being taught.
Many of the lessons also contain links to external sources like Descript's documentation or supporting resources where applicable.
100% with Descript, of course! I practice what I preach here.
- was filmed using Descript's screen recorder
- was edited using Descript
- is hosted by Descript (with the exception of a few that are hosted on Youtube).
That's a very important question because Descript gets updates more frequently than any software I've ever used before!
Because of that, small updates are made on a weekly basis and major updates are made as-needed.
Additionally, I release a new video lesson for every major feature release to show you what's changed.
TLDR, the course is always evolving and updating!
Learn by watching and doing. Then, repetition, repetition, repetition.
I recommend having a project of your own open on one screen and the course open on another. Then watch a lesson, pause it as needed to practice the skill on your own project, and repeat while going through the entire course.
If there is a part you already know, skip it.
If there is something you need to review again, go back to it.
And if something isn't making sense or you have questions, just ask! I answer every inquiry.
Depending on which option you purchase, you either get lifetime access or one-year access to the course and it's updates. It is completely self-paced so you can go as quickly or slowly as you'd like.
As of now, it is only available in English.
Yes! The course is geared toward a beginner to intermediate level Descript user.
All course lessons include the lesson transcript, optional close captions, the ability to resize the video, and the ability to change the playback speed from 0.5x to 2x.

Tutoring sessions are 60 minutes long (30 minutes for Quick Sessions) and are conducted over Zoom.
The session is tailored to your learning preference whether you prefer to watch, do, or some combination of both.
Some students come to the session with specific questions or objectives. Others have no particular agenda and say "teach me something cool/useful."
Here is a sample of a full one-hour tutoring session:
Absolutely! When you are booking the session, you will have an opportunity to opt-in or opt-out of call recording.
If you opt-in, the recording will be sent to the email address you booked the appointment through.
After checkout, you will be taken to an appointment booking page to find a time that is convenient for both of us. I usually have same or next-day availability, 7am-8pm CST, seven days a week. (Note: if you book with less than 12 hours notice, I will have to manually approve the appointment.)
Absolutely! I've helped a number of clients launch successful Youtube channels and podcasts, provided feedback on camera and microphone setup, prepared content marketing strategies, and designed thumbnails. I'm happy to share my expertise on any of those subjects during our sessions.
Ultimately, that depends on you and your goals.
But here are some recommendations based on experience level:
Within six months of purchase. After that, unused calls expire.
Learning Descript is like learning to drive a car.
At first, it's really hard. You don't know where things are and all the dials and buttons are overwhelming. But, with the right instructor and some practice, it becomes nearly effortless.
As such, this tutoring is geared toward beginners. The goal is to get you from where you are to hitting the metaphorical open-road with confidence!
Yes, I will give you 100% of your money back if I can't get you to your goals, solve your technical problem, or teach you something new.
Depends on how many you order. For 5 or less, I can have them to you by the next business day.

Then, click the button that says "+ Copy to my templates." Select the Drive where you want to copy it. And you're done! The template is now in your templates and available for you to edit and use however you desire.

It's really simple.
For editors: Talented Descript video and podcast editors can create a profile and post their services for hire.
For creators (employers): You will have access to the database of editors. You can find ones you'd like to reach out to, begin a conversation with them, and proceed to hire them if they are the right fit.
Nothing! This won't always be the case but while I'm testing the idea and getting editors on board, it's completely free to create an account and start messaging.
