Thanks to the digital revolution, thousands of entrepreneurial businesses and individuals are discovering new niches to profit from in areas like online training and education.
Electronic learning (eLearning) is based on the concept of distance learning, where learners do not interact face-to-face with the teacher or trainer.
The eTraining Industry Is Growing
eTraining course marketplaces like Udemy.com show that the eTraining industry is growing at a tremendous rate.
Udemy.com provides over 30,000 online courses covery every subject imaginable, from business and career development, to health and fitness and hobbies, etc …
(Udemy currently offers 30,000+ online courses on every subject imaginable!)
This is not only great for people looking to learn, but also for businesses that have unique and valuable information that can help transform the lives of others.
eCourses – Opportunities And Challenges
Some of the drawbacks of developing online courses include:
- Figuring out content delivery methods,
- Employing popular tools and technologies that don’t require an additional learning curve,
- Ensuring consistent standards are applied throughout content design, branding, etc.
- Measuring learning outcomes,
- Assessing student performance,
- Generating useful reports, certificates of completion
Additional factors include the lack of face-to-face interaction, boredom and lack of student motivation, loss of focus, etc.
e-Courses – A World Of Possibilities
If you are a product creator, creating a course that teaches commercial subjects in areas of strong interest is a great way to attract new subscribers and develop an online stream of revenue. Product creation is one of the best ways to attract customers, establish authority and credibility and position yourself as an industry or niche leader.
There’s a ton of opportunity. Every imaginable subject can be turned into an e-course.
(Got an interest or passion for fashion photography, gardening or creative writing? Turn it into an online training product!)
The problem with product creation, however, is that creating “how to” ebooks and training courses from scratch can take a lot of time. Chances are, however, that if you have been marketing your business online for a while, you probably already have the building blocks of great content on your website or blog that can be leveraged into a training product.
If your site is built with WordPress and you would like to develop an online training course, there’s an inexpensive and powerful solution that can help you.
