Education is evolving
In today’s fast-paced work environment, employees and freelancers are eager to pursue continuing education. It’s no longer as simple as choosing a career, getting a degree to match, and never looking back.
Data from the University of Texas at El Paso indicates that a whopping 68 percent of those taking online classes are experienced professionals - 36 percent are industry switchers, while the others identify as career accelerators that want to pursue advancement in their current company or industry.
For businesses, there’s a clear benefit to providing online courses to employees. There’s a well-researched link between employer encouragement of learning and higher engagement and lower turnover. If you’re a freelancer or business owner who wants to offer an online course for people outside your circle, millions of people are seeking further education right now. It’s a fantastic time to enter the market.
With a growing number of students, there’s never been a better time to create online course offerings. Are you thinking about offering a training course for your employees or producing an educational video series to diversify your streams of passive income? WebArc is here to help.
Why use a learning management system (LMS)?
When it comes to learning, retention, and putting lessons into practice, Learning Management Systems have significant advantages over both traditional courses and other online options.
By giving learners all the information they need in an organized, concise way that tracks their progress and can provide many exercise options, they provide the most efficient and cost-effective form of training. The ability to complete course material any time permits flexibility.
Also, an LMS can provide both the course designer and the student with meaningful data and statistics. You can see how your students are progressing, what they may be struggling with, and how much time they’re spending. You can completely customize the branding, materials, and structure of your course. Ultimately, an LMS is your best option for a smooth experience for both you and your students.
