WPCourseware - Learning Management System Courseware Plugin For WordPress

Thanks to the internet, thousands of entrepreneurial businesses and individuals are now finding new niches and opportunities to profit from in areas like providing online courses and e-learning management systems.

eLearning is is the modern equivalent of distance learning, where learners don’t have face-to-face interaction with the trainer or teacher.

The eLearning Industry Is Growing

Online course marketplaces like Udemy are indicative of the growth of the eLearning industry.

Udemy.com provides over 30,000 courses online on every topic imaginable, from internet marketing and personal transformation, to courses on health and fitness and making better lifestyle choices, etc …

Udemy.com currently offers over 30,000 ecourses covering all topics!

(Udemy.com currently offers over 30,000 e-courses covering every topic imaginable!)

This is not only great for people looking to learn, but also for individuals that have valuable knowledge that can help transform the lives of others.

Online Training – Benefits & Drawbacks

The internet provides many useful tools and a great environment for developing courses online, but there are also significant challenges and drawbacks.:

  • Working out the best methods to deliver training content,
  • Using easy-to-use tools and technologies that course students can immediately use to access the training content,
  • Ensuring consistency of standards used in content design, branding, etc.
  • Measuring outcomes,
  • Grading student scores,
  • Generating reports, completion certificates

Additional factors include lack of human contact, potential lack of student motivation (e.g. boredom), potential lack of focus, etc.

eLearning – Unlimited Possibilities

If you plan to develop and sell products online, creating a product that helps people acquire new skills is a great way to attract new subscribers or monetize your website. Creating products is one of the best ways to attract new customers, as well as establish authority and credibility and position yourself as a leader in your niche.

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

Got a business or passion for photography, gardening or technical writing? Turn it into an online training course!

(Got an interest or passion for photography, horticulture or creative 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 online for a while, however, you probably already have content on your blog or website that can be leveraged into a digital training product.

If your site is built using WordPress and you plan to develop and sell e-courses, there’s a cost-effective and powerful courseware plugin that you may want to consider using on your site.
