The fact that the e-Learning industry is growing and that any subject can be taught online is not only great for people looking to gain new skills, but also for individuals that have unique information to share with others.

eLearning – Benefits And Challenges

The internet provides many great opportunities and tools for creating and selling e-learning courses. Training computer-based tools and technologies include Learning Management Systems, videos, audio training, video-conferencing, forums, slide and multimedia presentations, etc. There are, however, a number of drawbacks involved in planning and developing effective online courses.

Some of the challenges and drawbacks include:

  • Figuring out the best way to deliver training content,
  • Employing popular tools that do not require investing additional effort, money or time in a new learning curve,
  • Ensuring consistency across the content, branding, etc.
  • Measuring results,
  • Assessing scores,
  • Creating reports, completion certificates

Additional factors include the lack of human contact, boredom and lack of student motivation, loss of focus, etc.

e-Training – Unlimited Possibilities

Creating products is, after all, one of the best ways to attract new customers, establish authority and credibility online and position yourself as a leader in your niche.

There’s a ton of opportunity. Just about every imaginable subject can be turned into a “how-to” product.

Got a passion or interest in commercial photography, horticulture or technical writing? Turn it into an e-course!

If your website is built using WordPress and you want to create e-learning products, there’s a cost-effective and powerful courseware plugin that can help you.
