How to Create and Sell Courses Online - Kirsten Drickey, Inside Higher Ed

Problem: you are a highly trained, skilled professional, but the academic job market is less than rosy. Solution: the market for online, nonacademic courses is large and growing. According to some estimates, by 2020 the worldwide market for self-paced online learning will be between $27.1 billion and $47.9 billion. Simply put, keeping their skills current has become another part of the job for most working professionals. More and more people are turning to platforms such as Lynda.com, Skillshare, Udemy and others. Unlike degree or certificate programs, most of these courses don’t lead to formal certification. Instead, participants aim to close an immediate gap in their skill sets or to further a personal interest. https://www.insidehighered.com/advice/2016/11/15/advice-academics-creating-and-selling-online-courses-essay
