The movement continues with popularity at an unprecedented rate, offering you ways to share your knowledge teaching through networks online.
E-learning is available for all levels of education, continuing education in the fine arts, crafts, technical and trade skills.
Did you know that the average person spends more time online watching videos learning a new skill than in a classroom? With so much time spent in this way you’d expect the idea of online learning to fizzle out. Instead it has grown to more unbelievable bounds.
Why does the popularity continue?
- The ability to have access 24/7 and never expire
- The expense of not having to travel to take a class
- A live class from more master artists are offered online
Yet, with most e-learning available not all has been shared. There are so many others who have their ways and techniques in a skill and trade that they’ve kept secret from the world. Are you that person, and if so are you ready to take this direction yourself?
I want to share with you how you can take advantage of the booming business of online classes.
Give the popular Udemy platform a try. They offer a diverse course group selection. I have taken some classes myself, and have not been disappointed.
They have a good reputation for easy access to your dashboard, and easy set up for teaching curriculum. They do have guidelines about the course structure plan. One is that your courses must be a minimum of 30 minutes, and 60 percent of it must be video content.
You own your lessons material which is a great plus!
Udemy doesn’t charge a fee to instructors to host on their platform. Everyone is accepted that applies, and there are no content restrictions. Your potential income with them depends on several things. Read about it here.
I prefer to incorporate my tutorials on my website (great for branding purposes). It helps protect with copyright infringements locating it on my website. If you are not savvy and technically inclined try WordPress they offer plugins that give you the ability to have membership pages for paid students. Also Typepad and Weebly are popular with an extra monthly fee charge.
No matter how old or young, there's always time to learn something new. You can be a part of the ever growing popularity, share your knowledge teaching through networks online.
As always your shares are appreciated. Create something wonderful!
