We often have subject matter experts approach us wanting to know a little more about how we create content and how we choose who will create what course. So we thought it may be useful to publish a little primer on what goes on behind the scenes in our Content team.

  • How do we look for our course authors?
  • What do we look for in our prospective course authors?
  • What happens once they come on board?
  • How much time can this whole process take?
  • What are the qualities of a great course author?

Below are also our top 3 most commonly asked questions about the content creation process.

  1. What do you mean by ‘content’?
  2. How much time will it take to prepare and record 1 hour of content?
  3. What are the commercials offered by Jigsaw to develop courses?

Q1. What do you mean by ‘content’?

What a course author gives us is just the raw material. Our internal production team will be working on reformatting the content visually by adding diagrams, flowcharts, and illustrations. They will also work on ensuring that the audio recorded is clear, easy to understand and is edited for consistency and conciseness so that the final videos the students watch are optimized for understanding and for clarity.

Q2. How much time will it take to prepare and record 1 hour of content?

Time taken to prepare the content will vary from person to person and the expertise one has in that area. As regards to recording, it depends on the course length and the course author’s preparedness on the topic. The more prepared he/she is, the faster the recordings can be done. 

Q3. What are the commercials offered by Jigsaw to develop courses?

Payment is based on a per-hour rate for the final content produced. It will depend on the course length which would have been mutually decided. The rates we offer are best as per industry standards and will be based on the course author’s years of experience/proficiency in the area.
