You’ve bought a Learning Management System, invested a lot of money into marketing and promotion but didn’t receive the return on investments. Students drop your classes and don’t recommend your online courses to the peers as they think the class wasn’t worth their money and time.

Sounds familiar?

The challenge of keeping students motivated is common among distance learning providers. The majority of online courses available online are very generic, created for everybody without personalizing and thinking about the choices. As a result, students are struggling to complete their studies and succeed in their degree programs.

You know that you can do better; you just need some advice from an expert!
