Here are a few Success tips for instructors that we have gathered and we believe if it is diligently followed,instructors will find a fulfilling reward.
1.Create Value:Create value with your courses in such a way that when students take the course , they benefit directly from the knowledge gained.For instance, a course on mobile app device development can help your student create a valuable app for the very first time.Same goes for web design and development, cake making,Autocad, etc the list is endless.Create courses that help improve the career prospects of your students thus helping them succeed.
2.Always provide interaction:As you have noticed,macaranta.com is an interactive E-learning website. So what does this mean? Good question:As an instructor you don’t just create a course and zoom off.Students will have questions which they can ask via the message instructor button or in course groups/forums ,do your best as an instructor to respond to questions asked by your course students, it makes common sense since they have paid for the course and it will be rude abandoning them.
