The internet has allowed information to be shared in a way that wasn’t possible 10 years ago. Today one can learn all they need to know about any topic or skill online – and even gain credible qualifications from the comfort of their own home with a laptop!
Here at Really Bright Media we have been impressed by an online learning platform, ‘Udemy.com’. Over the past few weeks we have been working on an exciting project for a client, using the Udemy site to launch their first online training course.
Udemy is an online platform that allows instructors to build online courses on topics of their choosing. They can upload video, PowerPoint presentations, PDF’s, audios, zip files and live classes to create the lectures which will make up their curriculum. As the instructor, you have the power to select how much you want to charge for your course, and you can also make it free if you wish. In general, course prices range between $30 – $150.
Some of the most popular courses on Udemy include a ‘Photoshop CS6 Crash Course’ (3,700 students currently signed up to this $40 course!), a ‘Young Adult Fiction Writing Workshop’ (priced at $199 and currently with 416 students) and ‘Sleep Hacking: Have More Energy, Spend Less Time in Bed’ (priced at $49 with 1,300 students).
Do you have a training course that you could productise? Are there elements of your business which could be broken down into sections and shared as online lectures? Thanks to platforms like Udemy it is now affordable to disseminate your expertise to a global audience who can pay to take your course and gain the knowledge that you have to share.
If you have an inkling that this is something you would be interested in looking into for your business, please speak to us about the possibility of helping you script, film, edit, produce and set up your very own online learning course!
