Create a product from the whole content of your web course
You can create a training kit comprising of CDs, e-books, videos, etc., for people who could not participate in the class to purchase and learn what you taught during the live seminar. These conferences resemble the online video courses described in a previous section but differ from those because webinars are strictly live events where participants can ask and answer questions during the live events.
Unlike the physical conferences where you will have to run around trying to get things ready, set the conference hall, make arrangements for refreshments and other relevant things like that, web conferences only require the participants to indicate interests, get registered for the course and follow from any part of the world. Thus, you will spend a minimal amount of money organizing such web meetings that end up making you a whole lot of money in registration fees and sales from the products you showcase during the conferencing.
Most great online platforms where people flock today to teach and learn varied topics began with people who decided to explain what they knew online years ago through web conferences. You too can start something similar and give the online world their next online teaching platform. Below are some excellent online platforms with such humble beginnings:
Skillshare is among the most significant learning platforms you can find online today. Here, teachers meet learners and everyone benefits. As a teacher, you choose what you want to teach under relevant categories such as Designs, Art, Technology, Lifestyle, and Entrepreneurship.
When Skillshare launched in 2012, it had only 15 courses where students were expected to work together to complete tasks. By 2014, there were over a hundred courses on that platform for members to participate in at a monthly cost. Today, it has over 10,000 courses!
Udemy focuses on working adults who desire to beef up their professional certificates, learn new skills or pursue their projects. Udemy gives professionals the chance to become online instructors, design their courses and tools in PowerPoint presentations, PDF files, audio messages, video clips, etc. These instructors earn money from students who subscribe to their courses. As of today, there are over 15, 000, 000 students on Udemy with over 55,000 courses to choose. You too can register as a tutor.
