Is Instructor Role for LearnDash for you?


The feeling of growing your eLearning business is natural.  But there are many ways to do it.  

Some people resort to heavy marketing and investing in extensive campaigns to increase course sign-ups. It’s not a bad idea, but it’s also not a one-size-fits-all solution. 

You may be able to capture new students, but what about keeping your already existing students from bouncing off after they’ve completed your course?

That’s where you can offer your students a new course.

For example — If you’re offering a course like ‘Python for Beginners’. How about offering a new course like ‘Python for Statistical Analysis’?

And with the help of Instructor Role in LearnDash, you don’t even need to be an expert in the area you want to build a new course on. You can easily hire an SME to build, teach, and manage courses for you. 

Imagine the amount of resources saved that you would otherwise invest if you were to create a course yourself.

Think about replacing the time-consuming process of setting up custom roles, building a course from scratch, keeping a log of instructor payments, and more such trivial tasks with simple automated functionalities.

You can direct your focus on things that matter like growing your business

Keeping that in mind, here are some real-life use cases to help you understand how Instructor Role is making people’s lives easier.

1. The busy coach



2. The enthusiastic professor



3. The B2B trainer
