How to offer? It depends on the type of Education. If it is about Programming, it is a practical material you must preset practical info. If it is about another topic you may use PowePoint and speak as you speak to one of your friends. You may have music or not, you may have short or big paragraphs or videos or audio. After the article about some budget LMS's, I'd like, in this article, to give some info on how we must deliver Online Education.

There are some basic principles, on how to offer Online Education:

  • Do what others do, what is popular, for example, WordPress is very popular 
  • Validate that the content is popular, now in April 2020 everyone wants an Online School
  • Do it with love, start from this that  you love
  • keep mental space
  • cooperate with one or more person to obtain expertise and gain the needed time to learn
  • if you can not do a task  outsourced it
  • have time for your family

Also, read this article with Tips On Creating An Online School

What is popular in order to know how to offer online education

You can validate the demand of the content by Google (keyword search), or on how many students are following the course in Udemy, e. t.c. There are a lot of services performing SEO research, and you can learn what people want and where. In general, you must solve problems with online education and you must help the people.


Online lessons on how to offer education

First I 'm going to give info about  a school (between others) that gives lessons on how to deliver:

Introduction to Budget LMS'

For a few months, I have researched the market, in order to find a budget LMS. So below are the results of my study. There are LMS like Moodle who are free. And also LMS' that are extensions or plugins to popular CMS' like WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal. In this article, I 'll provide info about Moodle, Joomla, and WordPress Budget LMS'.

Moodle a FREE LMS

Go for moodle If you want to teach and not for a paid course, you can receive payments with a plugin (I think Paypal), if you want a budget LMS the easiest is to go with WordPress.

But If you already have Moodle and you want to make better the way of payment you must use WordPress or even Joomla. With WordPress, there are some solutions, the most used is the Edwiser Bridge. See the below video:

There are two budget LMS extensions using Joomla:

The first is   (it includes payment ways and cart), the Sp LMS.
