Since I opened The Automation School back in 2014, I've offered students enrolled in my Extended courses free vouchers to download course lessons to their mobile devices using Vimeo.
And while these offline mobile downloads have been quite popular, many have asked me to add an offline option for PCs as well.
To that end, I've spent several days this past month creating just that: Secure, fast USB 3.0 drives pre-loaded with my courses.
First, these USB 3.0 Drives are designed to work with both Windows and MACs, and even more importantly they do not require the student to install any software, or copy any files on their PC.
Second, to protect each student's investment our lesson content on these secure drives are protected from deletion and overwriting to insure friends and colleagues don't abscond with the drives with thoughts of repurposing them for other projects.
Third, each drive is also “personalize” to the student with a unique password to insure sticky fingers don't try to make off with our student's investment.
And finally, I often add new lessons to my courses on a regular basis, I'm also offering a free annual update service to each student who purchases one of our Course USBs.
All they have to do is mail the USB drive back along with a self addressed stamped envelop, and I'll update the drive and return it to the student free of charge. Optionally, students can just pay for return shipping and packaging which typically run around $5.00.
