I have just been browsing some of the graphics I have used in my blog. Sadly, I do not have a reference as to where they originated and their validity!
In practice if we ran a Catia course with 15 students for a week, we broke even.
So running physical classes would be OK. Potentially we could run courses and cover costs.
However, if we were to be unique and run our courses at a working circuit, and combine it with online training we could potentially be profitable... Not a concept that is normally associated with Lotus.
I received no tangible support. It was 2000 I suppose and people were not sure if this would work.
Phoenix University in America now serves about 1/2 million online students in America.
Today mobile online devices are everywhere. People all over the globe have access to what I am now writing...
How many students do you need to break even? Not known.
Phoenix made over ten percent profit on revenue for 1/2 million students.
This is only servicing the USA. My plan would be global. This would not only have the potential to be a viable business, it would also give our partners, backers and hardware suppliers global exposure.
Makes sense to me!
