Does Your 2015 Include ELearning?

9factsThe end of the year is here, which offers a time for people to reflect on the previous year’s events as well as to plan for their future. We generally refer to these “self promises” as resolutions – most of which revolve around doing something we consider to be good for us.

When considering what you want to do this 2015, why not make a commitment to elearning?

There are actually a couple of ways you could go with this, so hear me out.

First (and probably most obvious), you could choose a new skill to learn in the new year, taking the course from the comfort of your home.

There are many professional courses available by a large variety of providers. Some are free, such as courses through Coursera or edX. Others may require a financial investment, such as a course taken from

My personal opinion on the matter is that people are much more likely to commit to something if they have put money towards it. So if you are in the position to do so, I would recommend purchasing a course.

But maybe you’re not up for taking the course. That’s perfectly fine. Instead, what about committing to creating elearning?

Creating an online course has never been easier, especially with programs like LearnDash that make it easy to set-up and course on your own hosted website (and even sell it).

Chances are you know something that others would like to know. By creating a course you are giving back, and in some cases you can start to earn a healthy revenue – which is a fantastic way to start off the new year!

If you haven’t thought about including elearning into your plans in 2015, now would be a perfect time!
