The problems that plague the virtual space as a learning environment can be distilled to issues revolving around technical and practical limitations, the inability of programs to engage students as they would in real person, and low transparency leading to weak overall accountability.

Online learning programs require a certain level of “computer literacy” on the part of both the instructor and students. With technology changing rapidly, it can be hard for people to keep up with new devices and software. Oftentimes, it is assumed that those involved know how to best use the technologies but this isn’t the case in reality. The gaps in technical faculty mean that inefficiencies will persist as the programs transpire.

A slow site turns customers away. It has a direct impact on your wallet. In fact, “a 1 second delay in page response can result in a 7% reduction in conversions.”

I’ve even seen tests where a 500ms delay dropped conversions by 10%.

Most likely, your site isn’t just facing a 1 second delay; it’s probably 2-3 seconds slower than it could be. Simply by reducing the time it takes for your pages to load, you could increase conversions by 15-21%. With just one growth hack, that’s a 15% increase in your customer growth this year.

So how fast is fast?

#GrowthHacks

Ideally, you want a page load time of under 2 seconds. For the vast majority of sites out there, this is a feasible load time that you can get at a reasonable cost. It’s a nice sweet spot before you have to pull out the expensive Jedi site tricks to get any faster.

The company started in the DVD rentals business and is now the most successful video-on-demand channel. Netflix was able to drive growth by targeting communities of interest. To spread the word, the company used a pretty simple tactic: going to online forums and communities frequented by avid DVD renters. With this strategy, Netflix planned to have a soft launch but this approach went viral and the company received 100,000 orders in the first 3 months without the need of any marketing.
