We all want to have great businesses that make money, solve problems, and help people to get results. As e-learning continues to boom, it’s become more critical to have tools that allow people to learn on their mobile devices. More and more people want to learn on-the-go and in podcast format. The more spaces we can create that make education easy, the more we can cut through the challenges of getting people to use and implement our content. My guest today is a Boss Mom who built an audio platform that allows course creators to turn their content into private podcasts. How does the platform work, and how can it help people get better results from our courses? In this episode, entrepreneur and founder ofHiro.fm, Carla White shares the power of learning through listening, and why the future of e-learning is on our phones.
3 Things You’ll Learn in This Episode
Why e-learning still has so much opportunity and room to grow:
E-learning is a multi-billion dollar industry, but it hasn’t really changed much since its inception. Much of e-learning is still tethered to computers, which makes it hard for us to learn on-the-go. Hiro.fm allows course creators to upload their content in podcast form, allowing people to listen and learn on-the-move.
How to meet the demand of today’s e-learning students:
People want relevant, on-demand content that solves specific problems. They want targeted educational information that is dispensed through a channel that makes internalizing and implementing it easier.
How to publish content that matches how we learn:
There are 3 levels of education, listening, learning, and implementation. When e-learning is tethered to a computer, a lot of people are only able to listen, they don’t have the time or the space to implement it. The people who find the most success in our programs are the ones who can actively listen to things over and over. If we can allow people to learn on-the-go, while they’re making dinner, driving their kids around, or working out, we can give them more space to internalize and implement.
