The good news: People will pay for high-quality teachers and courses.

In the very first chapter, author Mark Lassoff of LearnToProgram.tv demonstrates the model he uses to turn his passion for computers and programming into a business grossing over half a million dollars a year. He also shows how that model can be applied to just about anything in which you have expertise. He also reveals and explains the math behind making a six-figure income with teaching early in the book, helping you chart a path to your own success. 

Dispensing with high-altitude descriptions and theory, Building an Online Education Business is filled with helpful and practical resources you can use to launch your own education business. Lassoff shares his own business process documentation as he covers everything you need to know about authoring, branding, producing, releasing, and promoting a course. He also includes essential web resources, spreadsheets, checklists, and charts.
