Thanks to the digital revolution, thousands of entrepreneurial companies and individuals are discovering new niches and opportunities to profit from in areas like online training and education.
eLearning is based on the concept of distance learning, where learners have no direct face-to-face interaction with the trainer or teacher.
The e-Training Industry Is Growing
eLearning sites like Udemy show that the e-Training industry is growing at an impressive rate.
Udemy offers over 30,000 ecourses covering all topics, from business and leadership, to courses about happiness and improving your lifestyle, etc …
(Udemy.com currently offers over 30,000 e-courses covering all topics!)
This is not only great for people looking to gain the skills they need to advance further, but also for individuals that have something valuable that can help transform the lives of others.
Online Learning – Opportunities And Drawbacks
The digital medium provides tools and technologies for developing etraining courses, but there are also many drawbacks and challenges.:
- Figuring out methods of delivering training,
- Employing familiar tools that don’t require spending additional time learning,
- Ensuring consistent standards are used throughout content design, course branding, etc.
- Measuring results,
- Assessing scores,
- Generating useful reports, completion certificates
Additionally, you need to take into account important factors like the lack of human contact, lack of student motivation (e.g. boredom), distractions, etc.
e-Training – A World Of Possibilities
If you are trying to expand your business online, creating e-training products that help people gain practical skills is a great way to grow a subscriber list or monetize your website. Product creation is, after all, one of the best ways to build a loyal customer base, establish authority and credibility online and position yourself as an industry or niche leader.
There’s a ton of opportunity. Every topic imaginable can be taught online.
(Got an interest or business built around fashion photography, landscaping or writing sales copy? Turn it into an training course!)
