COVID-19 has put the world in a state of emergency. People can't go out, interact with one another, and engage in their daily activities. Maintaining harsh curfews and social distancing is the only way to fight this viral disease. However, a silver lining to this scary situation is that since everyone is stuck at home, productive people will aim to take advantage of all the free time they have. 

Fortunately for the learning industry, almost all tasks can be done right from the safeties of your home. As a result, your existing business can also be transferred onto an online platform pretty effortlessly. There's no need to fret! Just stay home and keep teaching your students. Not only will you be able to conduct your business, but you will also be able to give your students a sense of psychological relief and a sense of normalcy.

Build Interactive Quizzes


Interactive quizzes are another crucial part of creating an eLearning platform. A course cannot be successful in teaching the students completely without actually testing them on their learnings. This is where the quizzes come in. Quizzes must be challenging enough to test the students in the topics that you covered. You should also make the quizzes simple and not take too much time. This will help alleviate pressure for the students. To learn more about the quiz creating process of SP LMS, take a look at the documentation on quiz building.

Sharing the Instructor Role With Others

Teaching, like most other things, is done better and more effectively as a team. And if you know people with the same passion for teaching, you should definitely look into sharing your responsibilities as an instructor. This will not only take some burden from you but also create a bigger scope for teaching more subjects.

How to Build Your Audience 

Building an audience is, oftentimes, the most challenging aspect of any e-business. However, during times when the record-breaking internet statistics are being observed, it’s easier than ever to do digital marketing. Just get online to your favorite social media, and start sharing! Ask your friends and family to share and you will be up and running very soon. Do some paid marketing as well!

Wrapping Up

People staying home has given the eLearning industry a massive boost. This will, in the long run, create an even more massive and booming industry as more teachers start working from the comforts of their home. So, we highly recommend trying out these steps to make sure you can also jump on this bandwagon and take your career in eLearning to the next level. 

Stay home, stay safe!
