Another very significant fact about the importance of this trend is that, according to Forbes magazine, for millennial training and development is the most valued benefit that the company can offer, above bonuses, free days, etc.

Many people prefer to study online because of the convenience of learning something new while at home. Not having to travel to the school or business school is an important advantage, because it allows us to better organize and use time.

Another great advantage for the student is the price, much more affordable than face-to-face training. By working as an online teacher, you can save on physical space, displacement and time spent teaching the lesson.

The choice of distance education is also advantageous in terms of the type of material that the user can consume. It is possible to take lessons anywhere, as long as you can connect to the Internet. Not to mention that there is access to content from around the world. Giving online classes extends your knowledge to places you've never thought to go.

Let's go ahead! Share your knowledge with those who thirst to learn more.

But how can you do it?

1. Define the content that your course:

It is important that you focus on what you dominate and what you feel passion for.

2. Determine the profile of the students:

Do not try to launch a course worth "for the whole world". Segment your target audience very well.

You have to understand well the needs and desires of your students.

But how to know?

Investigate! Think about how your online course can positively impact the lives of your students. What results will you obtain when putting into practice what you teach?

If you already have a list of subscribers or a social media audience: Question!

Ask them for their main barrier to getting what you are going to explain in your course.

3. Segment in topics:

It is important that you focus on what you dominate and what you feel passion for.
Schematize the topics that you will teach in the form of a methodology to follow step by step.

You can also provide supplementary materials that complete or help put into practice what you are learning in the course.

4. Select the lesson format:

It is important to remember that the interaction in the online course is different from the classroom. The students are not physically present in real time.

Do you already know the different formats you can use? We present some of them:

1. Video classes: they are excellent options for students to feel more involved, since the format of the videos is very didactic and the content is easily consumed. Also, as you can see the teacher, the lesson can be very dynamic.

2Ebooks: are digital books that can be read by various devices (computers, tablets, phones). That's why your material will be easily accessible.

3. Specialized and educational guides: these are guidelines that you can make available to users. With this type of material you can clearly show your authority and experience on certain topics.

4. Webinars: they look like video classes, but they are live. Apart from all the advantages of the videos, the teacher obtains instant interaction with the students in this class format. Doubts can be restored instantly.

5. White papers: they are shorter contents. With them you can talk about a single topic. They are excellent options for presenting quantifiable information.

But it is not necessary that you choose a single format for your online course. Experiment, choose more than one option and see what your audience prefers.
Also, keep in mind the format that works best for you. Some people are excellent at making videos. Others prefer to write their contents.

There is no correct format and the wrong one. Choose the one that best suits you and your avatar.

Dedicate time to online courses

Do you think you can "digitize" your knowledge? Well, go ahead!

But do not make it another obligation in your life. Enjoy the creation of digital courses.

In all professions it is necessary to adapt as time passes.

At the beginning you can think of digital courses as a complement to your income. But little by little you will notice that this can become a main activity of your business and a great source of income.
