eLearner Stats

Justin at LearnDash posted some interesting tidbits from the University of Phoenix yesterday… Which interestingly enough reports having the largest number of online students.

According to LearnDash and UofP…

Online courses are becoming so popular today that they are almost expected in any formal education curriculum. Classrooms are often supplemented by an online portion, while some universities promote exclusively their distance learning programs.

As online learning has become more mainstream, we have been able to gather information about the online learner. It is interesting to see the demographic distributions, including the one fact regarding the annual income of the online learner.

Probably least surprising of all of these facts is that University of Phoenix has the largest proportion of online students. From what I can tell, online learning is their primary offering (and if I’m not mistaken, they were one of the first to the market with this value proposition).

Below are 10 unique facts about students who take a portion of their courses online – well, nine now that I have just mentioned the fact regarding the University of Phoenix :).

10 Surprising Facts About Online Students

    • 46% of students say their biggest motivation for enrolling in an online course was to advance their current career.
    • 37% of online students were the first in their family to attend college.
    • 33% of people taking some online course are studying business.
    • University of Phoenix has the largest proportion of online students at 15%.
    • 39% of online students fall between the ages of 18 to 29.
    • 21% of online students pay for their education using personal funds only.
    • 70% of virtual learners are female.
    • 29% of online graduates earn $85-150k annul income.
    • 60% of students taking an online course are employed full-time.
    • 37% of online students indicate that they enrolled because of the accelerated courses, which fast-tracks students to a degree.

There is one stat that stands out for me…

  • 70% of virtual learners are female.

Which is something that we haven’t directly experienced at FullContact Courses (close though)  but is something that we have experienced in terms of the number of trainers, coaches, speakers etc. that have started selling their own courses online.

Wonder why this is?

Selling Courses or Products

Are you selling courses or… information products?

I can hear you asking right now, “What’s the difference?”

There’s an important difference and you’ll get introduced to it in today’s video.

I started selling info products online in the late 90’s.  I was also selling courses offline.   Today your business has to be setup differently in order to sell courses online and that’s what we’re covering in this session…

What’s the real difference?  Find out below.

How To Create Your First Course

Start Your Course – Don’t Wait

As you probably already know, there are many different ways to go about setting up your Campus courses.  Here’s a quick guide to get you started quickly, efficiently and most importantly working properly!

This is our suggested way to add your courses, fell free to modify/alter/edit to best suit your personal needs.

PART 1: Get Familiar with the LearnDash Admin Panel

3 Tips before getting started:

  • Tip 1: Make sure you have a documented roadmap of your course – before you start.
    By this, I mean the number of lessons, topics, quizzes and their positioning in the course.
  • Tip 2: I strongly recommend setting up the architecture of the course before adding content.
  • Tip 3: Make your titles intuitive and organized to make your road-map easier.

Step 1: Double Check Your Campus LearnDash Settings

  1. Confirm the LearnDash plugin is installed and activated like any regular WordPress plugin.  You should see additional WordPress Menus for items like Courses, Lessons etc.
  2. Make sure you have your correct PayPal email address setup to take payments. Navigate to COURSES > OPTIONS FOR COURSES and enter your PayPal email address as well as any currency and country information if not default US.

Step 2: Creating a Basic Course

  1. Add a new course. Navigate to COURSES > ADD NEW.
  2. Enter the title and publish.

Step 3: Add Lessons to the Course

  1. [Do this step only once] Set the order. Navigate to LESSONS > OPTIONS FOR LESSONS and Sort by “Menu Order”, Sort Direction “Ascending”. Update.  
  2. Add the lessons. Navigate to LESSONS > ADD NEW.
  3. Associate the lesson to the course. When editing the lesson, make sure to select the course to which it should be associated by selecting the course name in the COURSE ASSOCIATION box on the right hand-side.
  4. Just below, you will see an ATTRIBUTE box with an Order option. This is for ordering your lessons. The first lesson should have 1, the second 2, and so on until all your lessons are numbered. This will make ordering them very easy.
  5. Repeat step B through D until all your lessons for that one course are created and associated with that course.

Step 4: Add Lesson Topics

  1. Add the topics. Navigate to LESSONS > LESSON TOPICS > ADD NEW.
  2. Just like you did for the lessons, associate the Topic to the correct course on the Course Association box on the right hand-side.
  3. Just below, you will see an ATTRIBUTE box with an Order option. This is for ordering your topics (just like you did for lessons). The first topic should have 1, the second 2, and so on. This will order your topics under each individual lesson.
  4. Scroll down, and select the lesson to which it should be associated under the Associated Lesson drop-down.

Congratulations, you have set-up the ARCHITECTURE of your course!
To see the initial result of your work, navigate to COURSES and View the course you just created. You should see all the lessons listed. Click the Expand All button, and you’ll see all your topics. Next up, the quizzes!

PART 2: Getting Creative on Content and Quizzes

Step 1: Creating A Quiz Template

  1. Navigate to ADVANCED QUIZ.
  2. Click the Add Quiz button. This will be the general settings for that quiz.
  3. Read carefully through each option deciding whether or not it is something you want.
  4. Save, then click the Back to Overview button.

Step 2: Adding Questions to your Quiz

  1. Hover over your newly created quiz title, and select the Questions option appearing below, then click the Add Question button.
  2. Read through the different options, and select the ones that fit your needs. Save, go back to Overview and repeat until all your questions are created.

Repeat Step 1 and 2 until all your quizzes are created.

Step 3: Link the Quizzes to the Course by creating “Quiz Skins”

  1. Navigate to QUIZZES > ADD NEW.
  2. Quick Tip: For organizational ease, I recommend you match your quiz title to that of the Advanced Quiz you created earlier. This will make it easier later on to associate the two and troubleshoot should you ever need to.
  3. Once the title and body is filled out, select the course to which the quiz should be tied under Course Association on the right-hand side.
  4. Scroll down and select the appropriate Advanced Quiz to be associated.
  5. If your quiz is a lesson OR topic quiz, select the appropriate lesson or topic from the drop-down. Click Publish.
  6. If your quiz is a final quiz, do not associate it to a lesson or topic. Click Publish.
  7. IMPORTANT NOTICE:  When publishing, you may see a notice saying that it did not save. If so, verify that the advanced quiz is still associated. If it is, you can navigate away safely. We are in the process of addressing this issue.

Step 4: Content and Options

  1. Add a price OR a join button to your course.
    Navigate to COURSES > Edit your course. Scroll down, and EITHER select the join button (if courses are free) OR add a price if the course is paid (in the form of 1.00).Other fields are optional.

There are many other optional features – feel free to navigate around and discover them at your own pace. This was a simple overview to get you started.

Thanks to Kloe from LearnDash for this quick start guide

Why You Need To Consider eLearning

The LearningHouse web site posted some compelling stats last week about how important online courses are becoming.

LearnDash our LMS Partner posted:

Online degrees and certifications are becoming extremely popular for a variety of reasons. According to one study of past, present, and future online college students, there is a high perceived value of an online education.

The survey found that nearly two-thirds of online students do not even consider getting a degree in a classroom-only setting. A far change from a short 10 years ago.

In fact, if an online program was not available, 45% of the students said they would not have pursued the degree in the first place. Granted, this fact could be very well influenced by the sample, of which 55% had experience with online study.

Online Degree Appeal

Getting an online degree is very appealing to the modern student. Learners indicated that the primary advantages include:

  • Ability to study wherever and whenever
  • Flexibility to study around work obligations
  • Ability to study at own pace
  • Study at home eliminates travel
  • Lower costs
  • Flexibility to study around family obligations

While most (if not all) elearning degree programs offer these benefits, there are other factors that prospective students indicate they look for when choosing an online program.

  • 44% look at school reputation
  • 38% want no set class meeting times
  • 35% care about tuition and fees (the first point is a driving influence of this)
  • 32% value the amount of transfer credits accepted
  • 31% want a personal academic advisor with regular contact

Interestingly, what learners indicate as most important in an online educational program is the same as what is valued in traditional institutions – primarily in regards to reputation and tution (cost).

For students who have taken an online program in the past, 65% indicated that it was completely worth the financial investment (31% – somewhat, 4% – not at all).

Similar sentiments are expressed involving opinions of the time investment, where 72% of respondents indicated the time they spent with their online education was completely worth it (24% – somewhat, 4% not at all).

For more details on this study, head on over to this page on the LearningHouse website.

Online education is happening without you.  eLearning – organized online education is something that you’re unique experience can contribute.

Frustrated By WordPress

Blogging With WordPress Isn’t Easy For Everyone!

It used to be fun Blogging… now it’s a _______________ (add whatever word suits you)

What started out as an fun and easy way to share your talents and experiences and get paid for your efforts is a big waste of time for many of you reading this.

Too much technology to understand and too much “me too” competition make traditional WordPress Blogging a no-go for the speakers, coaches, consultants and subject matter experts that I talk to on a daily basis.

Sure it was fun in the early days – my first blog was in early 2000 :-), but today a Blog or WordPress Membership site is a major ordeal for anyone who isn’t technically savvy and just wants to share their expertise in a meaningful way online.

A major shift is coming…

Teaching experts like you how to use the technology isn’t an option anymore!

Who has the time? What’s needed is a simple way to just “add course content” and have an online learning campus available for your clients who just
want to learn how and what you teach.

… and that’s why I’m looking for a couple of experts who want to sell courses online, without the technical headaches.

I’m looking for a couple more experts who want to sell their courses online in our FullContact Campus.

==> Just Add Your Course Content

The site is almost ready, but you can find out what it’s about and how you can be selling your courses online in about 15 Minutes.

Use the “Get Help” button on the bottom of the page and setup a time to talk or if you like what you see and want to get started use the coupon
code:

“CAMPUS”

during the checkout to get 51% off the price of your own FullContact Campus. The coupon will only work 5 times before it expires so waiting isn’t a
good option if you want to an quick way to sell your courses online.

Autoresponder Attachment Mistakes

Avoid this common Autoresponder Email Marketing Mistake

Sending attachments to your list is a big mistake.  Find out why in this quick MySmallBiz University video tutorial.

Unlike sending an email to someone you mail to regularily, attachments pose some special problems for autoresponders.   This is especially true when you are trying to attach a file that is big like a video, mp3 file or even a pdf document.

Think about the numbers for a minute.

The PDF version of MySmallBiz Map is over 1 Meg in size.   Attaching this single PDF file and broadcasting that message to a list  – of any size, say 10,000 subscribers, means that each mail that I send out will will be 1 Meg in size X 10,000.

That’s 1o Gigs of bandwidth!

Even if you’re subscribers don’t read the message your host isnt’ going to be too happy.  In fact depending on who hosts your site it may even eat up ALL of you available web hosting bandwidth for the month.

This doesn’t even take into consideration the delivery rate – It ain’t going to be pretty!

So what should you do when you NEED to send an attachment of file to your list?

Pinterest Shiny Objects

Beware of Shiny Objects!

Especially on Pinterest – where you’ll find more junk and time wasting spam coming from lame marketers.

Have you seen the new shiny object on Pinterest yet?  It’s affiliate spam pinned as pictures with links to questionable images.   There is software you can purchase to do the work for you if your really lazy.

I posted a couple of weeks ago that I didn’t think Pinterest would last too long as the greatest marketing tool.   To show you what I mean watch the video below to see how a good idea is quickly being ruined by stupid marketers.

Pinterest is only a  spec on the marketing map – just a single tool that you should be using to build your small business.  See how easy it is to abuse a good idea.  Let me knwo what you think.

YouTube Secret of a Tiny Rapper

Don’t make you marketing too complicated.

There’s a great example of how “simple” your market might be on Youtube.   I fall into this trap still, over-estimating the knowledge and experience of my market place.

Take a look at today’s rant and seen how Simple can mean tons of traffic.  I’m talking about silly amounts of traffic, millions of page views in just a 90 day period.

Local Search Traffic Tips

Local Search Traffic Tips

You may be missing out on a bunch of traffic in your local market.   The sad part is that it’s easy to get!  Watch this video and learn what a bit of work and 7 days can do for your local search engine rankings.

I’m working on a site that my wife Heather owns.  It’s called “Styled&Staged“, for her home staging business.  Until last week it was missing in action when searching for any of the home staging keywords and phrases for both local and global markets.   Heather is busy with the “home staging” and has no time or interest in working on her WordPress blog to get more business.

I thought I’d spend a couple of minutes to see what I could do using the search engine optimization strategies I teach in the Get Ranked 1st on Google course and the WordPress Mastery PDF eBook .

The 11 minute video introduces a number of concepts and ideas that you can use to quickly use to get more visitors and targed traffic directly to your site from local visitors.
