This year, forecasts show that the elearning market globally will be worth over $243b. Before the digital era, lecturers in lecture halls and classrooms conducted their classes face-to-face. Some universities offered distance learning courses by mail, which were the precursor of elearning courses

In this post, we’ll look at the benefits of elearning, both for you, and your learners.

Most universities around the world now offer elearning courses, usually to supplement face-to-face teaching. Professors and all manner of educators are also offering such courses to millions of students around the world. The fact that more laptops, tablets and smartphones are now in the hands of billions of users has pushed elearning courses into the mainstream, with the likes of Udemy and Skillshare

More students are embracing digital learning technologies (DLT), especially since the pandemic forced most to learn at home. The fact that DLTs offer the personalised support that students seek has made elearning courses more attractive than ever. 

As of 2016, the following have become the most common materials used in digital learning in United States’ Pre K-12 classes: 

Close to 50% of all students in US colleges say they find digital learning technologies (elearning courses) extremely helpful for acquiring knowledge. They rely on their laptops, desktops, smartphones and tablets to access the reading materials, quizzes, and assignments. Students use these devices to log onto their accounts, contact teachers, and fellow students. 

The benefits of elearning – personalised learning

Elearning courses can accommodate the needs of all types of students. This form of learning suits everybody perfectly. Technology has transformed how teachers and students offer and access education respectively. The benefits of elearning, are that courses can be accessible for office workers and stay-at-home moms alike. Learners can enrol for weekend or evening classes depending on availability, convenience and comfort. 

Learners can also access content multiple times. Furthermore, elearning courses offer people access to frequently updated lessons or content. The delivery of lessons is much faster with elearning courses. Compared to traditional learning, the time students need to learn using elearning courses reduces by as much as 25%-60%. This type of learning also offers a higher level of scalability compared to traditional formats. 

Selling your elearning courses

With all these benefits, you should not be afraid to sell your elearning courses. It offers a great opportunity to bring in revenue, often with little extra effort or expense. That said, you will need to market your courses. So, unless you have a ready-made audience of willing students, there may be some initial investment required.
