December 11, 2016 — In this talk, I will deliver a detailed case study on how WordPress can be used to deliver online education courses and build highly engaged communities of students.
Most online courses achieve student completion rates of around 2% – 10% according to this MOOCS research study.
We have achieved 65% completion rates of our online courses by building incredibly engaging courses and a world class learning environment built on WordPress. The best part of this talk is that the online courses and community we have built are all for WordPress developers and freelancers so this is truly a WordPress showcase piece.
The online education market is worth over US$100BN and WordPress provides a great platform for all online educators to improve the quality of their courses and deliver better student outcomes.
The core technology covered will include WordPress, BuddyPress, bbPress, BadgeOS and the LearnDash Learning Management System. I will also talk about the psychology and strategy of delivering an online course to maximize student engagement and completion rates.’
