Are you an expert in your field? Do you have a unique idea you know would benefit others – if only they had the know-how? Have you tried to share it, but aren’t sure how? If this sounds like you, it’s time to create an online course. Here are three reasons why:
1. Mobile Learning Is on the Rise:
Trends in learning are changing—quickly! Over the last couple of years mobile learning has led the renaissance. Back in the day learning mostly happened in schools and colleges; some forward-thinking companies offered on-the-job training. The Interweb has changed all that. Mobile learning is on the rise, and isn’t showing any sign of slowing down. The global market for self-paced eLearning was $36 billion in 2011, and is expected to reach over $50 billion by 2016, according to eLearning Industry. That’s almost $10 for every person on the planet!
2. Mobile Learning Is Accessible to Everyone:
Gone are the days when a student had to take out a big loan, move to some remote college town, and show up at a lecture hall to get an education. Now they can be enlightened from their computer or phone wherever they are: at home, at the office, or on vacation.
Learning platforms no longer have to be institution based, either. They can be delivered by online providers, so experts like you can offer a course to everyone who needs it.
3. Mobile Learning Is Beneficial to You:
Today’s students are looking for expert solutions to their problems. And they want them now! Given the choice between an expensive college course that’s difficult to get to, and an online course on the same topic led by an expert like you, chances are they’ll choose you!
By offering your content in the form of a course, you can build a fan base. This is especially true if you utilize proven tactics in course development, such as story-telling, student-centered learning, user interactivity, and multi-media.
The best part is, you can use your online course for many different purposes:
- To promote your ideas, brand, products, or yourself.
- To monetize your ideas.
- To train employees, customers, or partners.
