Most online courses take one of two approaches: either an online class you can take in lieu of a class at a brick-and-mortar school, or you can take the class on-line. They can be either more or less flexible depending on where you live.
While it’s true that online courses are generally more flexible than classroom-based courses, you do have to take the class online or at a brick-and-mortar location. Online classes take up a lot of your time and money, and you have to decide if you want to pay someone to teach you the material or pay a lot of money to sit in an empty classroom all day.
Online classes can be cheaper, and they allow you to learn from different instructors, but they also mean you’re learning from someone outside of your usual circle of friends and family. Sometimes this is great, sometimes it is not. But I’m not sure the benefits are worth the cost, especially since the cost of a class is not the only variable you need to consider.
There aren’t many online courses available and many of these are expensive. It’s worth looking into one or two which are free and for which they are free.
I have found that there are many courses which are free, but not really worth the time. There are some which use online courses as a promotional tool so its possible to make them more appealing. Also many of these use some sort of in-app purchase system so you dont have to pay for the course. Again its worth looking at if you are interested in learning something.
There are some online courses that are free, but not really worth the time. These courses tend to be for specific fields such as Photography, Business, or something else which you can then use to get a certificate or license. They provide no real benefit to the student and they do not generate any income for the provider.
Expanding courses is a similar concept to online advertising. One of the advantages of course marketing is that you are buying the course for a limited time and you can then use its benefits to keep the course going indefinitely. This is the same idea as an online ad for a product. If users don’t have a desire to buy the product and/or don’t have a need to continue the product, you can offer a trial period in which they can use the product for free.
The difference here is that you are actually offering the product to the users, or at least charging a small fee for doing so. If your customers are not interested in continuing the product or are not using it anyway, then you have nothing to worry about and you can continue to run it indefinitely. If you feel that you can develop a better product or more features, you can make an additional small fee and then continue to offer the product for free.
This is where it all begins to unravel. The more you charge for a product, the more people you’re going to have to charge (and for) to keep your product running. A lot of businesses have been in this position in the past, and have found that they have customers who can’t or won’t pay for the products they offer. So they get sued.
So it’s a good way to show your commitment to making sure your product works, and if you can do that, then you can keep your brand and the experience of your customers, and hopefully, keep it going, and even if you lose, they’ll be happy with you.
