LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
Are you selling courses online? If so, did you enter into the market with the assumption that you need to scout for students and teach them for a pre-determined amount of time before allowing them to complete your course and move onto the next stage in their lives or career?
If you use this educational framework you’re not alone, many course sellers do. It is, after all, the way most of us were taught. Therefore, it’s not surprising to find out that it’s the way most of us teach.
But it’s time to question this approach. Is this the best approach for your online education company’s needs? Is this the best approach for your students’ needs? Or do you just use this educational framework because it’s what you’re familiar with? In this podcast we address this issue with author and entrepreneur Jeff Cobb who has nearly two decades of experience in learning technology. He challenges the “1 time transactional approach” to education and asks online educators to explore ways to build stronger and ongoing relationships with their students that meet their needs as lifelong learners.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT:
- Lifelong learning and what the “other 50 years” are.
- Why thinking about online education as a one time educational transaction may be hurting your online education company.
- Why schools are slow to adopt lifelong learning initiatives.
- New content creation challenges for lifelong educators.
- The link between freelancing, lifelong learning and online education.
- Why lifelong learning makes educational institutions more accountable to student outcomes.
