e-Learning – Benefits & Drawbacks

The internet provides many opportunities and technologies for developing e-courses, but there are also significant drawbacks and challenges.:

  • Working out methods of delivering training content,
  • Using popular tools that learners can instinctively use to access the training content,
  • Ensuring consistency across content design, branding, etc.
  • Measuring outcomes,
  • Assessing student scores,
  • Providing useful reports, certificates of completion

Additionally, you need to take into account factors such as the lack of human contact, student boredom, distracting environments, etc.

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 every topic imaginable can be taught online.
