Examples of Simple Online Courses

To give you ideas and inspiration for creating and launching your own.

One of the best products you can create — especially in these times — is online courses. Millions love to learn by taking classes online. And everyone has something to teach.

You, too, have the potential to create and launch online courses.

I facilitate an online support group to help with creating/launching online courses, and many of the members are just launching their first course. A few members are more experienced, but they’re also enjoying the energy and momentum in working together within an encouraging group.

Check out the following examples of simple courses. These are being launched by my group’s members now. Click on the link of each title to see more about it. May these inspire you to consider creating your own course as well!
