What is Video School Online?

VSO was founded in 2012 as a place to share our knowledge with the world.

It started out with a few courses and tutorials, and has grown into a full-scale media company with books, webinars, a podcast, social media projects, and a ton of other great resources.

Now we partner with other experts so we can provide the best training in all kinds of topics!

What can you learn here?

Most of our topics fit into one of these themes: video, photography, design, and business. You can learn everything from email marketing and photo editing to motion graphics and cinematography.

About Phil

I am a creator + I am a teacher

My passion is to inspire and educate others through documentary and educational media.

I grew up in San Dimas, California and my biggest passion as a kid was baseball. Later on, I studied film and television production at Loyola Marymount University. After graduation, I shot, edited, and created motion graphics for hundreds of corporate and non-profit videos.

At one point, I moved to Berkeley where my wife got her Masters in Social Work at UC Berkeley, and I made videos for their public affairs and educational technology departments. A few years later, we settled back down in the most excellent San Dimas.

Back in 2012, I felt an itch to create a business of my own. With no experience teaching, no audience, and no idea what I was doing, I started making videos about everything I knew.

To date, my courses have grown to be some of the most successful on Udemy. Hundreds of thousands of students from every country in the world have enrolled in my courses.

I’m always experimenting with other platforms and other ways to best serve my audience. From this experience, I started the Online Course Masters podcast where I train people how to teach their own online courses.

Today, I spend most of my time helping students, creating new educational content, helping friends with film projects, and brainstorming my next documentary.

So, you want to teach your own online courses?

Fairly soon after teaching my own online courses, others were asking me how to do the same themselves. Perhaps you came to this website to learn how to do so.

I’ve set up the Online Course Masters Podcast and Masterclass to help you. It’s the perfect way to learn how to create and sell your own online courses.

Join our private OCM Facebook Group to learn from other course creators like you.

I appreciate you!

Thank you for being here. Without you, I couldn’t have done any of this. Hearing success stories from students who’ve obtained jobs with the skills learned on Video School Online urges me to create more courses, blog posts, free videos. I’m looking forward to the future of Video School Online, and I’m glad to have you here!

Thank you,

Phil Ebiner
