Thanks to the internet and digital technologies, thousands of entrepreneurial businesses and individuals are now finding new niches to profit from in areas like providing e-training courses and elearning.
e-Training is based on the concept of distance learning, where students have no face-to-face interaction with the teacher or trainer.
The eTraining Industry Is Growing
eTraining course sites like Udemy.com show that the eLearning industry is growing.
Udemy.com currently offers 30,000+ courses online covery every topic imaginable, from design and personal brand building, to courses on religion & spirituality and photography, etc …

This is not only great for people looking to learn new things, but also for businesses that have something unique to teach.
e-Courses – Benefits & Drawbacks
The internet provides benefits and opportunities for creating e-courses. e-Training tools include Learning Management Systems, online videos, web-conferencing apps, audio courses, slide and multimedia presentations, online forums, etc. There are, however, some challenges when it comes to developing etraining courses.
Some of the drawbacks include:
- Figuring out content delivery methods,
- Using popular tools and technologies that do not require spending additional time learning,
- Ensuring consistent methods are applied throughout the content, branding, etc.
- Measuring results,
- Grading student scores,
- Creating useful reports, certificates of completion
You also need to take into account important factors such as the lack of human contact, boredom, distractions, etc.
eCourses – Unlimited Possibilities
If you are an internet marketer, creating ecourses that help people learn useful skills is a great way to attract new subscribers and develop an online stream of revenue. Creating products is, after all, one of the best ways to attract customers, establish authority and credibility online and position yourself as an industry or niche leader.
There’s a ton of opportunity. Almost anything can be turned into an ecourse.
(Got skills, knowledge or a passion for photography, gardening or creative writing? Turn it into an online training course!)
The problem with product creation, however, is that creating PDF reports and training courses from scratch takes a lot of time. Chances are, however, that if you have been marketing your business online for a while, you already have training content on your blog or website that can be leveraged into a digital training product.
If your website is powered by WordPress and you want to create and sell e-learning products, there’s an inexpensive and professional courseware solution you may want to consider.
