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

Electronic learning (eLearning) is based on the concept of distance learning, where learners do not interact face-to-face with the trainer or teacher.

The eLearning Industry Is Growing

Online training sites like Udemy are strong indicators of the massive growth of the e-Training industry.

Udemy.com provides 30,000+ e-courses covering all topics, from office productivity and career development, to courses about creativity and language learning, etc …

Udemy offers over 30,000 courses online on every topic imaginable!

(Udemy.com offers 30,000+ courses online covering all topics!)

This is not only great for people looking to gain practical knowledge and skills of useful areas, but also for businesses that have valuable knowledge to share with others.

e-Learning – Opportunities & Challenges

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

  • Working out methods of delivering training,
  • Employing popular tools and technologies that course students can use instinctively to start learning,
  • Ensuring consistency across content design, branding, etc.
  • Measuring outcomes,
  • Grading student performance,
  • Providing useful reports, certificates of completion

Additional factors include lack of face-to-face contact, lack of student motivation (e.g. boredom), distractions that cause loss of focus, etc.

e-Learning – A World Of Possibilities

If you are trying to grow your web presence, creating a product that helps people acquire new skills is a great way to grow a subscriber list or develop an online stream of revenue. Creating products is one of the best ways to attract new customers, as well as establish authority and credibility online and position yourself as a leader in your industry or niche.

There’s a ton of opportunity. Just about every imaginable subject can be taught online.
