eCourses – Benefits & Challenges

Some of the challenges of planning training courses online include:

  • Working out methods of delivery,
  • Employing popular tools that do not require investing additional effort, money or time in a new learning curve,
  • Ensuring consistent standards are used throughout content design, branding, etc.
  • Measuring learning outcomes,
  • Grading student performance,
  • Generating reports, certificates of completion

Additionally, you need to take into account important factors like the lack of face-to-face interaction, lack of student motivation (e.g. boredom), distractions, etc.

If you plan to develop and sell products online, creating e-training products that help people acquire practical knowledge is a great way to grow a list and monetize your website. Creating products is, after all, one of the best ways to build a customer base, as well as establish authority and credibility and position yourself as an industry or niche leader.

There’s a ton of opportunity. Almost anything can be taught online.
