WP Courseware – WordPress eLearning Management Plugin

Thanks to the digital revolution, thousands of entrepreneurial organizations and individuals are discovering new opportunities to profit from areas like providing teaching and training courses online and elearning management systems.

Electronic learning, or “elearning,” is based on the concept of distance learning, where learners don’t have direct face-to-face interaction with the trainer or teacher.

The e-Training Industry Is Growing

Online education sites like Udemy.com are indicative of the growth of the eTraining industry.

Udemy.com provides 30,000+ e-courses covering all topics, from IT & software and personal development, to courses about stress management and language learning, etc …

(Udemy currently offers 30,000+ ecourses covering every topic imaginable!)

The fact that the e-Training industry is growing and that so many topics can be taught online is not only great for people looking to learn, but also for businesses that have valuable knowledge to teach others.

e-Learning – Opportunities And Challenges

The digital medium provides benefits and opportunities for creating and selling online training courses, but there are also significant drawbacks and challenges.:

Additional factors include lack of face-to-face contact, boredom and lack of motivation, distracting environments, etc.

eCourses – A World Of Possibilities

If you are an internet marketer, creating a product that teaches others subjects in areas of strong interest is a great way to grow a list or monetize your website. Product creation is one of the best ways to build a loyal customer base, 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. Almost anything can be taught online.

(Got a passion for photography, landscaping or writing sales copy? Turn it into an e-training course!)

The problem with product creation, however, is that creating PDF reports and training courses from scratch tends to be very time-consuming. Chances are, however, you already have plenty of great content on your website or blog that can be leveraged into a digital product.

If your site is built with WordPress and you plan to create ecourses, there’s an inexpensive and powerful WP plugin that you may want to consider.
