Australian educational entrepreneur Maria Doyle was 21 and living in Java when former Indonesian president Suharto's three decade long reign came to an ignominious end. Not long afterwards she was evacuated by the Australian government in the midst of street riots and lootings. But her first taste of chaos and political instability didn't quell her passion for adventure. Instead, it sparked a curiosity in global travel that led her on a career in education and training in off-the-beaten-track destinations. After returning home from her most recent posting and enrolling on several online courses, she saw an opportunity to help professionals structure their online educational programs. What you'll hear in this podcast: Tips on how to make a better online learning experience. How she copes with the challenges of being a solo entrepreneur. The opportunities presented by online education. Why teaching should be outcomes based. More and more people with professional skills are realizing that online courses are a great way to market and sell their skills and expertise. Like TurnPoint Radio? Don’t miss out the next episode.
