What needs to be cured?
Here are some issues that are to be cured in an Online Course scenario.

This can be solved by making effective and varied types of content presentations.
Some of the types of content that you may include to make your course attractive are:
Videos always give your students a visual treat. It’s always advisable to break up the text of your content in to an engaging video. You should also keep in mind that. The videos shouldn’t be too long. If it has long duration, the students will lack interest and patience. You can make your video content funny, interesting and easy to flow. This will keep your students focussed in to your topic.
- Charts and graphical representations
Instead conveying the contents only through texts, try conveying idea of the contents through charts and graphs. This would attract more audience to your course and increase your students’ interest. Students can easily pick up what is the whole content about by just observing the graph or chart. This will save their time a lot.
- Slide Presentations

- Screen shots
Screen shots are the best way of teaching and demonstrating software or product training. Screen Captures or Screen shots help them illustrate step-by-step instructions, troubleshooting procedures and side-by-side comparisons.
- Animated GIFs
Consider adding relevant GIFs that includes the content demonstration of your course. You can also attract your students by including humour element to your content.
