The eLearning Industry Is Growing

e-Learning course marketplaces like Udemy.com show that the e-Training industry is growing at a massive rate every year.

Udemy.com offers 30,000+ ecourses covering all topics, from marketing and leadership, to courses about parenting & relationships and music, etc …

This is not only great for people looking to gain commercial skills and competency in practical subjects, but also for individuals that have something unique that can help transform the lives of others.

e-Courses – Benefits & Drawbacks

The digital medium provides many technologies and a great environment for developing training courses online, but there are also many drawbacks.:

  • Figuring out methods of delivery,
  • Employing familiar tools that learners can use intuitively to access the content,
  • Ensuring consistency of methods used throughout content design, course branding, etc.
  • Measuring outcomes,
  • Grading student performance,
  • Generating useful reports, certificates of completion

Additional factors include lack of face-to-face contact, lack of motivation, distractions that cause loss of focus, etc.

e-Training – Unlimited Possibilities

If you are a product creator, creating a learning product that helps people gain skills and competency in subjects where there is a strong level of demand is a great way to grow a subscriber list or monetize your website. Creating products is one of the best ways to build a customer base, establish authority and credibility online and position yourself as a leader in your industry.

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