Teaching is considered a noble profession and it shows through the amount of respect that the vocation gets from everyone. Teachers are respected and usually it isn’t hard to get the opportunity to teach. The dynamic has changed now and in the real world, it is hard to get the opportunity to teach because of the competition.

This facility was introduced in recent years as the use of the internet became available to everyone. Through sites online, it is possible for people to teach people but in the case of 360training, it is possible to do something more than that. 360training is an online site that aims to teach people through their extensive number of courses and facilities that are available for everyone. They have courses from many topics, offering variety for everyone for whatever subject that they want to learn.

360training vs other sites

Other online sites do give you the chance to make your own courses and teach. It is a standard practice among online education systems as teachers are always needed to cater to all the students. They all try their best to make sure that the public are being taught but usually, there is a limit to the courses which is not present in 360training.

They do give the author the chance to mold the course as they want it to be so that’s already a plus for them. In case of other sites, they usually focus on one discipline and leave everything to the author, including organizing and what not. 360training offers them all the help and support they need, as well as the publicity they need to make it a success.

The downfalls (But not too severe!)

As cons go, there aren’t many that really come to mind.

The site is providing a lot of the support but yes, one con that comes to mind is the division of profits. For classroom courses, 50% revenue is offered to the author and 30% for on demand courses which doesn’t seem like much but if you think about it, it’s a lot.

As you are getting the help of the 360training support for everything that is, in making the course, advertising, selling and getting reviews, it’s a good deal as you are saving the money that might have gone into those options. Other sites usually end up asking you to make the investment for it so this con isn’t that much of a con in the end.

The workload may also get bigger but that depends on you at the end of the day.

Giving it a chance

About the author

Everything Tweaked

The world is never perfect, there is always better right around the corner. But to what extent can you go to find something that is as close to being perfect as it can be? I have been to places, met with people, explored businesses and relationships, used and wasted opportunities most of us don't dare think about. All of this makes me write for people so that they know.
