Thanks to the internet and digital technologies, thousands of entrepreneurial organizations and individuals are now finding new opportunities to profit from in areas like online training and education.
eLearning is is the modern equivalent of distance learning, where students have no direct face-to-face interaction with the trainer or teacher.
The e-Training Industry Is Growing
eTraining sites like Udemy are indicative of the explosive growth of the e-Learning industry.
Udemy.com provides 30,000+ ecourses covering all topics, from internet marketing and personal development, to courses about creativity and hobbies, etc …
(Udemy offers over 30,000 online courses covering every subject imaginable!)
This is not only great for people looking to learn, but also for businesses that have unique content to teach others.
eTraining – Benefits & Drawbacks
Some of the challenges of developing e-courses include:
- Working out training delivery methods,
- Using familiar tools that don’t require spending additional time learning,
- Ensuring consistency across content design, branding, etc.
- Measuring learning performance,
- Assessing student performance,
- Providing reports, completion certificates
Additionally, you need to take into account important factors like lack of face-to-face contact, lack of student motivation, distractions that cause loss of focus, etc.
eLearning – Unlimited Possibilities
If you plan to create and sell digital products, creating an elearning product that helps people gain practical knowledge of useful things is a great way to grow a subscriber list or develop another 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 a leader in your niche or industry.
There’s a ton of opportunity. Every subject where there is a strong interest and demand to learn can be turned into an online training product.
(Got skills, knowledge or an interest in commercial photography, gardening or copywriting? Turn it into an ecourse!)
The problem with product creation, however, is that creating “how to” ebooks and training courses from scratch is very time-consuming. Chances are, however, you already have training content on your blog or website that can be leveraged into a digital product.
If your website is built with WordPress and you are searching for a cost-effective way to develop and sell ecourses then there is a great courseware solution you should definitely look into.
