The distance learning market, EAD, has been growing more and more in recent years. And to be part of that, you need to know the options for online course platforms existing.
If you want to gain more authority in your business niche, have another source of income, help people from anywhere in the world and generate relationships with your audience, invest in creating online courses.
Anyone today can teach and share their knowledge online. But for that, you have to offer a good experience for those who will watch you.
For this reason, we are going to tell you the advantages of migrating your content to the internet and which are the best online course platforms.
ADVANTAGES OF USING ONLINE COURSE PLATFORMS
With the coronavirus pandemic in 2022, many companies and schools had to stop their face-to-face activities and migrate to online.
As a result, many companies, colleges and schools needed to create or hire online course platforms. For this reason, the demand for this type of system has increased a lot.
Distance education was already a modality that had been growing, especially when we talk about digital marketing content, for example.
But what are the advantages of using online course platforms? We separate the 4 main ones:
- Your company is not limited to having students only from your neighborhood or city. You can sell classes and courses worldwide;
- You can record the course or stream a class from anywhere at any time;
- Greater time management for your students, who can take classes whenever they can and do not need to spend time or money to travel to the course;
- Low production cost as you can start recording with a cell phone and hosting your content on free online course platforms.

But what are the best online course platforms on the market? Well, that depends, because what might be best for you, might not be for someone else.
That's why we've separated a list of 10 options for online course platforms, both paid and free, for you to know and analyze which one will meet your needs to create your virtual school.
We'd like to let you know that it's not a ranking of best to worst, just a list that goes from 1 to 10. How are you? Now let's get to the point:
