Thanks to the internet, thousands of entrepreneurial organizations and individuals are finding new opportunities to profit from areas like providing teaching and training courses online and e-learning.

Electronic training, or “etraining,” is based on the concept of distance learning, where students do not have direct face-to-face contact with the trainer or teacher.

The e-Training Industry Is Growing

e-Learning marketplaces like Udemy.com show that the eLearning industry is growing at an impressive rate year on year.

Udemy.com currently offers over 30,000 online courses covering all topics, from web development and growing your influence, to courses on happiness and improving your lifestyle, etc …

(Udemy provides 30,000+ e-courses covering all topics!)

The fact that the e-Training industry is growing is not only great for people looking to gain skills and competency in areas of strong interest, but also for businesses that have valuable educational content that can help transform the lives of others.

Online Training – Benefits And Drawbacks

Some of the drawbacks of planning, developing and implementing effective online training courses include:

  • Working out methods of delivering training,
  • Using easy-to-use tools that do not require taking on an additional learning curve,
  • Ensuring consistency of methods used in the content, course branding, etc.
  • Measuring learning performance,
  • Grading student performance,
  • Creating reports, certificates of completion

You also need to take into account important factors like the lack of face-to-face contact, boredom, potential lack of focus, etc.

e-Courses – A World Of Possibilities

If you are trying to grow your web presence, creating a course that teaches others practical things is a great way to grow a list or develop an online stream of revenue. Creating products is, after all, one of the best ways to build a customer base, establish authority and credibility online and position yourself as a leader in your niche or industry.

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

Got a business built around commercial photography, landscaping or copywriting? Turn it into an e-training product!

(Got knowledge, skills or business interest in commercial photography, horticulture or technical writing? Turn it into an ecourse!)

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

If your site is driven by WordPress and you plan to develop ”how-to” courses, there’s an inexpensive and powerful WP solution that can help you.
