You also need to take into account factors such as the lack of face-to-face contact, boredom and lack of student motivation, loss of focus, etc.
eLearning – A World Of Possibilities
If you plan to create and sell digital products, creating a course that helps people gain practical knowledge of useful subjects is a great way to grow a list and monetize your website. Creating products is one of the best ways to build a customer base, establish authority and credibility and position yourself as a leader in your niche or industry.
There’s a ton of opportunity. Just about anything can be turned into a learning course.
