Online Training Academy

An Online Training Academy is designed to provide easy access to videos and a training program for any type of learner, such as students, athletes, coaches, instructors and much more.

It functions by delivering structured training sessions, step-by-step guides, and instructional videos that empower learners to study according to their schedule, at their own pace and place. These practical learning materials will help you to develop your self-discipline and self-confidence and much more.

Step 1: Design your Curriculum

First and foremost is to figure out exactly what you want to teach.  For example if you are a swimming academy and looking to teach a swimming course, you will need to first figure out how you want to outline your curriculum, for example how long will it take for a student to attend your courses, how will they be organized, what courses will you offer and for what period of time.

Step 2: Produce the Content & Videos

Next is to produce the videos.  Most of our customers already have some videos and its only a matter of organizing them and editing them into proper courses.

Step 3: Setup your Website

Setting up your membership website and putting up a pay wall to accept payments is your next step, so that students can come on the website and purchase them.  Many vendors including us give you an optional storefront which includes a pay wall which will accomplish this for you.

Step 4: Connecting with a Video Service Provider

Connecting with the proper video hosting provider which will host your videos, provide you with useful analytics which we will elaborate on on the next step, as well as making sure mobile apps are available to your end users is key, the mobile experience is one of the key ways students will view and download your videos, making the video viewing experience easy is how your students will stay with you long term.

Step 5: Adding to your Curriculum

Staying active and providing your students with updated content on a weekly or monthly basis is the key to make sure your users are happy and will continue to subscribe long term.  Providing testing and certifications, a discussion forum and other services are also an added benefit to your subscribers.
