How to get started with an e-learning system

We talk a lot about why you should be using e-learning or online training but we don’t go into as much detail on how to set up an e-learning system successfully. If you’ve never used an online training system before, taking that first step might feel a bit overwhelming.

Here’s a checklist of the things you need to consider and the steps you need to take before you commit to an online training program.

Comparing Learning Delivery Options. What’s right for you?

Posted by AJ on Sep 7, 2021 9:06:43 AM

There is no doubt that 2020 was a year that changed how people interact in many facets of life. One of those is the delivery of training. Technology supported training is nothing new. Online learning and before that computer aided learning (in one form or another) has been around since the 80s but it’s only been in the last decade or so that mobile devices, ubiquitous high speed internet and online software has put this sort of technology within reach of most business.

Interactivity in Online Courses: Does It Work?

Posted by Caitlin Tennant on Apr 27, 2021 9:00:00 AM

Traditionally, learning has been done in a classroom environment with a teacher/lecturer/coach presenting the new information to the students. While this may include some group discussion, the majority of the lesson is often spent with the student listening to, reading and/or writing down the material. This is known as Passive Learning, and is still very common in today’s learning environment.

How to Grow Your Business Using Online Courses: Marketing and Selling

Posted by Hannah Warren on Apr 20, 2021 10:00:00 AM

So you’ve designed and created a fantastic online coaching course (or courses!) that will help you grow your business without spending more time with clients. To maximise the impact of using your online courses to scale growth, there are a few more steps to take.

What to Charge for an Online Course?


One of the hardest decisions you’ll make is how to price your online course. Don’t just pluck a number out of the air, as it will have a long term impact on your business, from the kind of customers you attract, to the amount of support you can offer and, of course, the revenue you’ll generate.

If you charge too little, you reduce the perceived value of your course and attract lower value clients, but if you charge too much, you’ll price yourself out of the market and have to drop your price, which looks bad.


Look at what similar courses are charging and decide whether you’re worth more (maybe you’re a more qualified expert, or you’ll offer extra one-on-one time) or less than them (if your course will be entirely self-guided, for example).

How to Grow Your Business Using Online Courses: Creating Your Course

Posted by Hannah Warren on Apr 13, 2021 9:00:00 AM

If you’re a coach – whether that’s a life coach, a business coach or a dog-training guru – you may find that you’ve reached a plateau with your business. After all, there is a limit to how many clients you can work with at a time.

However, there is a way you can scale up your business without increasing your work hours. Done right, online courses are a surprisingly easy and effective way to grow your coaching business. Need to know more? Let’s jump in.

So, your business has slowed down?

If your coaching relies solely on one-on-one client work, you’re trading your hours for dollars and there is a hard limit on how many clients you can work with and how many dollars you can earn. You can’t spend 24 hours a day working, and you can’t add more hours into the day. Eventually, your business growth will stall.

At this point, you have three options for expanding.

The current situation has hastened the uptake of online learning (and everything else!), so ready or not, educators have been thrown into teaching online. Here’s what you need to know to do it right.

The benefits of teaching online

A simple guide to remote onboarding

Posted by Hannah Warren on May 25, 2020 10:51:08 AM

The world fundamentally changed this year, and one of the parts of our lives that was the most affected was the way that we work. Many companies have had to press pause on hiring and even let existing employees go. 

However, some companies, such as organisations in the health, community support and distribution sectors, are still in a position to be bringing in new staff. They are now faced with the new problem of onboarding new team members remotely, which presents challenges both for the new hire and for the team they are joining. 

Engaging and efficient onboarding is even more important than usual, so that new hires become productive staff members as quickly as possible. Hiring managers and team leaders are therefore pivoting and adapting to virtual onboarding as we try to keep businesses going in our new normal. 

A good onboarding process, whether in person or virtual, not only trains new staff but also engages and builds relationships with them so they feel welcomed, valued and confident about their future with your company while still ensuring safety compliance

As an online training company, we’re in a better position than most to help companies navigate this unusual situation. We’ve been helping companies with spread out, disparate teams manage their remote onboarding for years. 

One such example is Aztec , a New Zealand North Island-based forestry transport company with more than 100 owner/driver contractors located Taupo, Rotorua, Central Waikato, King Country, Tauranga, Eastern Bay Of Plenty, Hauraki, Thames, Wellsford, Whangarei and Kerikeri. Our collaboration with employee management solutions company Engage lets Aztec onboard and provide ongoing support to their widespread team remotely and efficiently.

As such, we’ve compiled a short guide to remote onboarding to help make this new process as easy as possible for you and your new team members.

Building online courses quickly and affordably in a state of emergency

Posted by Gary Peebles on Apr 14, 2020 9:00:00 AM

A case study in Maori language learning.

We all saw Covid-19 affecting countries overseas and we all knew that it would eventually reach New Zealand’s shores, but not many believed it would impact New Zealand’s teaching curriculum as quickly and dramatically as it did on March 23rd, when it was announced all schools were closed as at 3pm that day.

When the lockdown happened, I don’t think anybody really knew what to do.  Certainly getting close to your loved ones and staying safe was step one, but after that, how could educators help the community and parents get through the four week (at least) lock down?
