This summer, online video instruction company Udemy announced its "Summer of Teaching" grant, with the intention of providing the winning instructor $5,000 and 100% of course revenues for life. Last week, Peoria, Ariz., middle school teacher Larry Paul was announced as the winner.
Paul, a veteran educator who taught in Virginia's Fairfax County Public Schools systems before moving to Arizona, has worked as both a regular classroom teacher and substitute at "just about all grade levels." Paul also has a background in coaching soccer, and that's where his winning Udemy course, "Street soccer: A guide to using small sided games," comes in. He previously developed a DVD and Website that were used by U.S. Youth Soccer and the Canadian Soccer Association in their own materials, so an online course was a natural extension.
