You can see (or may have experienced), the tremendous advantages to DL-
·Flexibility for the student
·Access to the instructor
·Affordable and convenient
·Concentrate in privacy and convenience of own home or office
·Self-paced learning
·Ability to reach diverse individuals globally and accommodate different learning styles
·Once established, the courses run themselves

Disadvantages are mainly for those students who learn

better in a real-time group situation.

WHAT & WHERE TO TEACH?

Check out sources like www.blackboard.com , and www.teleclasses.com to see what topics you have knowledge in are popular. Use a dedicated website or a ‘school’ like www.blackboard.com . For a free international bridge line go to: www.konferex.com. Eventually you can turn the logistics or registration and emailout over to a VA.

Create a CERTIFICATE for your students with your URL and phone number on it so when they

display it, others can find you.

To jumpstart the process, hire a distance learning coach. Writing and teaching on the Internet require a new set of skills.

Teaching has been called "the highest form of learning." When you teach they learn, you learn and it’s a win-win situation.
