Why Create an Ecourse?
First of all, if you’re not sure what an ecourse is, it’s ANY online learning course that teaches a skill or, shares knowledge.
The worldwide e-learning market is growing steadily and is projected to be worth $325 Billion in 2025. By hosting an ecourse or online class on Squarespace, you too can be a part of this amazing growth.
More Reasons To Join The Learning Revolution:
People are increasingly wanting to learn a new skill over acquiring possessions.
Online learning appeals to all demographics. It’s significantly cheaper than traditional teaching and so is very cost effective for the student.
Your student only needs a fast internet connection within the comfort and convenience of their home, plus a willingness to learn something new.
Once your ecourse goes ‘live’, you can sell it worldwide - even whilst asleep!!!
If you have a desire to share your innate gifts, ideas, talents or knowledge with the world but either don’t have the time or tech savvy, consider using my Design Service skills and let me help you set up and launch a class of your very own hosted via Squarespace.
You might be wondering what sort of ecourses/online classes might be suitable to launch and the answer is almost anything.
Here are some topic ideas to get your creative juices flowing:
Art - this is the obvious one to start with because this is where my experience lies. I’ve now created eight online classes and more will be added as time allows. This area is massive and can include so many genres including mixed media art, art for children, beginner’s art and then from a business perspective, such as how to market your art, approach galleries and enter exhibitions etc.
Holistic Therapies - aromatherapy, yoga, mindfulness
Health & Wellbeing - self care, healthy eating
Writing - storytelling, tips for writing a book, creativity writing, business writing tips
Craft - candle making, embroidery, felting, sewing
Personal Development - certification for life coaching, reiki, nlp, hypnosis etc.
Productivity - time management, organisation, goal setting
Finances - budgeting, stocks advice
Career Development - changing careers
As you can see above, the sky’s the limit! Just think about what skills or knowledge that you possess, that could be translated into an online learning experience..
Why Host an eCourse on Squarespace?
There are many platforms that can host your online class but hosting your ecourse via your own website, keeps you in total control of your customers/students, your content and the style and appearance of your classroom. I’ve created eight successful online classes (so far) that I host via this website and couldn’t be happier!
I’ve also used Teachable and back when I was using Wordpress (please, don’t remind me), I used plugins that I could never quite get working properly - that’s why I’m so glad I switched to Squarespace.
The Benefits of Hosting Via Squarespace:
Beautiful design and styling options
Control and freedom of having the material on my website
More cost effective
One less platform to think about and contend with
Easy to update and manage once it’s set up
