In this digital world, even education is becoming more and more digitized. From digital classrooms to digital learning or eLearning, modern-day education is very dynamic. There are many reasons for the overwhelming popularity of eLearning, but one of the most significant ones is its reduced dependence on educational institutions.
Many students prefer eLearning because it is very flexible and easy to enroll. Also, these are precisely the reasons why many students prefer to earn digital certificates instead of doing offline courses, which is bothering educational institutions.
For finding a solution to this situation, many educational institutions have now started to deliver their courses online. But, most of them are dependent on 3rd Party eLearning platforms, and that is why are bound to follow external rules. In this blog, we will discuss how these educational institutions can start their own eLearning platform using MUVI, and hence get rid of the restrictions imposed by the 3rd party eLearning applications. So, let’s begin.
Scope in eLearning Business
Before we start discussing the benefits of MUVI as an eLearning Platform, it’s important to discuss the scope of educational institutions in the eLearning business, and the challenges that they might face while entering it. Let’s talk about the good things first.
The scope of educational institutions in the eLearning business is immense. Studies have shown that students often give higher preference to the online courses offered by reputed educational institutions because of the value it offers. That is why even eLearning platforms try their best to onboard reputed educational institutions.
If the institutions develop their own platforms, they will be able to offer much more compact and diverse courses to their students. In fact, they can publish different types of videos, some pre-recorded while some live-streamed. Through live videos, online students will be able to view the lectures live from the classrooms, simultaneously with offline students.
Thus, starting an eLearning business gives them the scope to increase their student base immensely, and this time they can target global students.
- Many students from across the world want to attain knowledge from the top universities of the world. But due to constraints like geographics, economic situation, and immigration issues, they fail to join their dream colleges. But, if the institutions start offering the same courses online, these students can easily enroll in them.
- Even within the same country, many students do not want to join universities situated in distant places due to long travel. But they can definitely join the online courses from their home itself.
- Due to a large number of students, the universities can afford to offer the courses at lower fees. Hence, overall education becomes affordable, while increasing the ROI of the institutions simultaneously.
Things You Should Know While Entering the eLearning Business
While the scope is immense, institutions must keep in mind some basic things that might cause trouble later. Let’s take a look at some of those points.
Protect Your Content
When it comes to eLearning business, one of the first things you must ensure is that your content is protected from piracy. There are many online tricksters who are ready to steal information from your videos and reuse it to develop their own online videos. You must keep a note of them.
One of the best ways to protect your content from piracy is to integrate multi-DRM protection and dynamic watermarking into your videos. We will talk about them in detail in some time.
For any reputed institution, preventing misuse of their content is important. When you take the help of third-party eLearning platforms, your content is going out of your hand, at least for some time. Why take that risk? Build your own white-label in-house eLearning platform, so that your content remains yours forever.
Communicate With The Students
One of the biggest differences between online and offline education is student-teacher interaction. So, for online courses, communicating with your students is very important. It is not always possible to hold live classes with live chat. In such cases, instructors should adopt other ways of communication like emails and in-app question answers.
Lack of communication can lead to many serious issues, like loss of interest from students and improper course outcomes.
Make Assessments Stricter
Online assessments are often taken less seriously as compared to offline assessments. This is because of the freedom students get while appearing in the assessments. That is why the institutions must be clever enough to set tougher and trickier questions. Questions asked randomly in between lessons might also help in assessing the students more accurately.
