In 2020 I put the deposit down on a new apartment using my income from online courses. Teaching online has been one of the best things I've done.
I started CourseMaker to provide technical creators (developers, data scientists, academics) with a platform that was built for them, not yoga teachers (nothing wrong with teaching yoga, but the course requirements are different).
We're now in beta. It took a while to get this far, but it means that I'm confident you can run an online course business on the platform as it is now. Of course, we'll be making improvements every month - interactive coding exercises are coming next (so you can build your own codeacademy).
I'd love any feedback from the community
