One of the key roles we play in teaching students in any subject is to ensure we engage them throughout our courses AND that we have ways to assess what they have learned. Using interactive elements allows us to achieve both.
When you publish your online course using Kajabi or similar platforms that allow embeds in your posts and pages, you can use interactive elements from a library of Open Source resources available at H5P.org. The content from H5P allows you to create rich and engaging content to your courses for free.
I've summarised them below and later in the post I'll explain how to add them to your own course or website.
If you want to see any of these in action then please go to the H5P.org website, here is the link.
Remember that you should only choose to use an asset and add it to your course if it is going to add value either in improving the overall student experience or it helps achieve a learning objective. In other words,...
This is a recommendation from a raving fan so I'm biased.
I’m here to share with you an amazing opportunity that is too good NOT to share. If you are a consultant, coach, trainer or subject expert then this should be of interest to you.
Over the past three years, my business partner and I have transformed the way we do business by shifting almost everything we do serving clients from a traditional classroom, face to face service, to one that is now online. We’ve almost completely stopped delivering our face to face workshops and training courses and shifted them online, except for special situations and when we believe it's the only way to achieve the learning objectives of learners.
At the same time we also changed the way we market our business, manage our leads and sales pipelines. We've been able to rationalise our website hosting service, email software, surveys and online course building software so that we could bring...

This post is essentially about one man's view why fashion design cannot be taught online and one woman's view why it can!
For anyone interested in understanding the potential for online learning in their profession or business this post will give you confidence that learning outside of the classroom has finally reached a point where it's recognised as being an effective tool.
I had an exchange of comments on LinkedIn by someone describing themselves as a 'Creative Catalyst' who vehemently held a belief that there was no place for teaching fashion design online.
His view was that it is impossible to teach fashion design online and that anyone or any organisation that was adopting this approach...
In 2001 we embarked upon our first journey into online learning with a membership site targeting the automotive sector, car dealers in particular. This was pre-Facebook and YouTube and social media wasn't even on the agenda and WordPress... that wasn't going to be released for another two years.
We invested in developing a bespoke platform that allowed us to continually add content and online courses with all manner of benefits and features for the end users using our own content management system (CMS.) We had a crude (by today's standards) course creation editor, quizzes and learning logs for users.
Everything was coded and created from scratch. It took months to develop and cost us a small fortune. The product was sold either as a membership offer with a small monthly fee or as a white-label package allowing businesses to brand it as their own for use by their employees or partners. It was a gamble but thankfully we achieved a respectable ROI.
That was then.
