Learning has gone online. Everyone is deploying some form of online learning to their curriculum, from schools to colleges to corporate organizations. Thanks to the advantage of high-speed internet and powerful streaming solution providers, creating and deploying your very own online e-learning platform has become easier than ever, In this blog we are going to read about why creating online trading courses is a better idea than physical classroom courses and how use can do it using Muvi One and Muvi Live on-demand and live streaming capabilities.
Trading is a very dynamic profession. Markets turn every second and imparting the knowledge to trade in this highly competitive environment cannot possibly happen in a classroom as there are always going to be newer challenges to learn about and new information to process. On the contrary, an online trading course setup for beginners can help students study at will, process information in a much more interactive manner, and lastly, give the teacher the flexibility to alter courses at will to impart the latest information.
Setting up an online trading course is easy but before we move to that, let us understand the important features of online learning that make it a better choice to host courses than offline classes.
Benefits of Online Trading Courses Opposed to Classrooms
Remote learning is the future of education as it empowers the learner to access knowledge across geographical boundaries. With a laptop or phone and an active internet connection, it is possible for someone sitting in London to access your online course and pay for it. Leveraging technology, and setting up online trading courses will increase your reach and open up new revenue streams.
Online learning gives you more flexibility in terms of the creation of courses, the monetization approach to follow, the duration of the course, etc. You can set up a cluster of courses that come with a single subscription and also offer individual courses at pay-per-view. This opens up multiple revenue streams and collaboration opportunities.
While regular classroom courses have a fixed timeline to be followed for best results the same is not true for online learning. A user can study at will, take certification exams whenever they’re ready, and design their learning path as per their schedule and other commitments. More flexibility results in better learning outcomes.
It is a thing of the past when attending regular classrooms was mandatory for interaction with the instructor. Latest eLearning platforms such as Muvi eLearning offer various interactive features such as a dedicated chatbox for discussions and doubts, an option to raise questions and queries, sharing of notes as downloadables, performance reports, and much more.
Elaborate Certification, Monitoring & Analytics
Online eLearning offers robust analytics that lets you monitor each student, their learning progress, hours spent, and quizzes participated and based on that, can automatically issue digitally verifiable certificates as and when needed or as decided by the administrator.
