eLearning is is the technological equivalent of distance learning, where learners don’t have direct face-to-face contact with the teacher or trainer.

The e-Training Industry Is Growing

Online training marketplaces like Udemy.com show that the eLearning industry is growing.

Udemy.com offers over 30,000 online courses on every subject imaginable, from business and career development, to courses about better parenting and making better lifestyle choices, etc …

The fact that the eLearning industry is growing is not only great for people looking to learn new skills, but also for businesses that have something valuable to share with others.

e-Training – Benefits And Challenges

The internet provides benefits and opportunities for developing and selling courses online, but there are also significant drawbacks.:

  • Working out the best method to deliver training content,
  • Employing easy-to-use tools and technologies that learners can use instinctively to start learning,
  • Ensuring consistency across content design, branding, etc.
  • Measuring learning performance,
  • Grading scores,
  • Creating useful reports, certificates of completion

Additional factors include the lack of human contact, student boredom, distracting environments, etc.

Online Learning – Unlimited Possibilities

If you are an internet marketer, creating an e-course that helps people learn commercial subjects in areas of strong interest is a great way to grow a list or develop an online stream of revenue. Product creation is one of the best ways to attract new customers, establish authority and credibility online and position yourself as a leader in your industry.

There’s a ton of opportunity. Almost anything can be turned into an e-learning product.

Got a passion or interest in photography, gardening or creative writing? Turn it into an ecourse!

(Got skills, knowledge or business interest in fashion photography, landscaping or writing sales copy? Turn it into an e-course!)

The problem with product creation, however, is that creating PDF reports and training courses from scratch is very time-consuming. If you have been marketing yourself online for a while, however, you already have the building blocks of great training content on your blog or website that can be leveraged into a new digital training product.

If your website is built with WordPress and you are searching for an inexpensive way to develop e-learning courses then let me introduce you to a great solution that can help you.
