The number of students taking online courses increased 187% between 2003 and 2008. In 2012, more than two million students took all their courses online. And by 2014 the number of students taking at least one course online is predicted to reach 18.65 million.
These impressive numbers only include data from matriculating programs – universities and higher education. The market is even larger when you take into account the number of people that take self-improvement courses online, or specialised training, and even corporate training events. People love to learn online – it’s easy, convenient and always more cost-effective than traveling to university.
As a training company, none of this is probably new information. You’ve seen the trend for some time, and may already offer training online. But your specialty is training, not online video streaming services.
Ideally, you’d love to work with a streaming service that can help you:
- Increase revenue, not create an expensive technical nightmare when it comes to producing and distributing your training
- Offer all your materials online – both pre-recorded and live training events
- Protect your intellectual property rights by ensuring only those approved are able to view the training
Finding a streaming services company that can provide that type of help means you’d be able to get back to focusing on what you do best – delivering high quality training materials.
