Having online video courses available on your WordPress site is a wonderful way to bring traffic to your site and improve your business success. There are many benefits to having video courses on your WordPress site, despite the growing number of video lessons options available in today’s market.
Video lessons and video courses are a great way to add e-learning content and engage users in a helpful knowledgebase of information.
In the digital age, as content moves online, people are able to access information almost instantly and this also applies to the e-learning market. Information from online video courses can be obtained from a few clicks of a button or a short Google search.
The video e-learning market is one of the most profitable industries across the globe, and it only increases exponentially from year to year.
Massive Open Online Courses
This is why MOOCs (massive open online courses) have grown popular in recent years. However, due to the massive content boom and the few sites that have emerged as trusted e-learning leaders, there are some downsides.
Websites like Udemy, Coursera, Udacity and others are high-quality choices for online video courses, but they are also a cookie cutter format which is ideal for large businesses, but not necessarily smaller businesses.
Another downside to popular video course options is the number of videos available to users for the purpose of e-learning. While Udemy is well respected and top-rated, it actually has the smallest amount of videos available to users, compared to other e-learning websites. The solution to this is of course, to create your own video courses to fit your content.
