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?

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.

Are You Still Waiting for Mobile?

Many independent professionals and small business owners have adopted a “wait and see” policy out of ignorance and/or fear when it comes to mobile.

You can’t afford to wait any longer! The latest research by Pew indicates that 56% of Americans now own a smartphone, and that percentage is lower than most other industrial countries.

Let that sink in for a moment. More than half of Americans have an iPhone, Android or Windows Phone jam packed with a big screen and all sorts of advanced features. Worldwide, it’s estimated that at this moment, there are 6.8 billion mobile subscribers.

Should You Use Word of Mobile Marketing?

What does this all mean? Well it should be crystal clear now that there has already been a paradigm shift in the way we, as marketers, HAVE TO communicate and interact with consumers!

Fancy smartphones are exploring mobile purchases, watching videos, and are glued to social networking and web services. According to Ericsson AB of Sweden, annual smartphone traffic will reach 10 billion gigabytes by 2019, 50% of that being video streaming and social networking.

So how well are you positioned to take advantage of this shift that has already happened? The groundwork you lay now will determine your success in the coming years. This isn’t a flash in the pan that’s going to go away, step forward today and reap the rewards tomorrow.

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?

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

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.
