The Evolution of E-System Learning

I started ESL Skype a while ago as a way to promote my online English language teaching I was doing through Skype. Then I realised that I wasn’t that interested in online teaching, well not full time anyway, but I liked the website and domain name, so I asked myself what I was going to do with it.

Of course, as a teacher (who actually likes teaching), I’ve always enjoyed writing about learning grammar and stuff, so I decided to set up a page for ESL Learners. The problem with this is that if you’re going to have a website, it should pay for itself, right? But I didn’t really know how.

Udemy.com

Then, in November, 2014, I discovered the joys of doing online video courses (OVC). As I said, I love writing so doing OVCs gave me the chance to write an eBook, make a PowerPoint (PPT) from that eBook, and then make videos from that PPT, and then make money from the videos.

Of course, I’m still waiting for the “and then make money from the videos” bit, but that’s okay, I’m enjoying myself. However, here’s the link to a wealth of information that not only is reasonably priced but also can make you a lot of money. Click the image below to check them out.

Money-back Guarantee

I have done every Udemy.com course listed on this site so you can trust the recommendation I give them. However, every course on Udemy.com comes with a 30-day money-back guarantee so, since there is absolutely no risk, I’d just give all of them a go. What have you got to lose?

Top Tip

Since you’re here, I’ll tell you a secret. Never pay full-price for an Udemy course. The website constantly discounts the courses, so all you have to do is wait for a special occasion (don’t worry, Udemy.com manages to find a special occasion just about every week), and then pay the discounted price. They run $10 promos (where all the courses are 10 bucks duh), and you can get a 500-dollar course for 10 dollars! How cool is that?

MOOCs

I quickly discovered other OVC sites and if you look at the top menu, you will see them all there. Have a look around and see if you would like to do any of the courses listed (depending on when you actually stumbled across my website will depend on how many courses are listed; hopefully there are lots).

English Books

I also make some money by recommending books for those seeking knowledge. It’s not much but I figured that, after 20 years of teaching, I should be able to recommend a few books. I also recommend buying an eBook reader. They’re great!

And that’s it. Welcome to E-System Learning and I hope you find something useful.
