ULEARNING ANNOUNCES PARTNERSHIP WITH DAVE ESPINO, ONE OF THE MOST SUCCESSFUL ONLINE EDUCATORS
• Courses to be made available to ULearning’s affiliate and ecommerce partners and worldwide through ULearning’s distribution platform
• Jump-starts ULearning’s course development with relevant content for students to Earn and not just Learn
PETERSBURG, FLORIDA, December 15, 2015 – ULearning, the company building the largest distribution platform for online education, providing people real-world learning opportunities and connecting them with real-world earning opportunities, today announced that Dave Espino, one of the world’s leading online educators, has partnered with the firm to make a range of his courses available on the ULearning platform.
ULearning, which recently finished the development of its platform, is now creating linkages with affiliates, ecommerce companies, and other major partners, and is beginning to build out its online education course syllabus. Different than Udemy, Udacity, Coursera, and others that have taken in hundreds of millions of dollars in outside investment, ULearning has all been self-funded and internally developed by its partners. ULearning is leveraging its internal ecommerce expertise, experience running global multinational businesses, and relationships to build the largest online education distribution system in the world.
Dave Espino, one of the most successful leaders in online education, who has sold over $100 million worth of his video training courses, and has been featured on CNBC, Fox Business and others, recently decided to partner with ULearning and bring his courses to market via the ULearning platform. Mr. Espino commented, “When I became aware of what ULearning was doing to help people learn as well as earn, I quickly gravitated to the group as this fits exactly what I am all about. When I met the leaders who are driving ULearning and learned about their roadmap for building the largest distribution system for online education, I became a believer. I’m excited about the opportunity to help a lot more people by gaining a broader worldwide distribution for my courses.”
The online education business has seen rapid growth and transformation and is expected to eclipse $12 Billion in the next few years. Online education comprises over 30% of post-secondary education, driven by new learning models and the significant expenses associated with traditional post-secondary education in the United States. Bain and Company and other sources recently cited that only 12.5% of the universities in the United States have stable finances, as a result of their expensive models and legacy infrastructures and the rapid change in technology and other factors.
Brent David Willis, the former CCO at AB InBev and one of the founding partners at ULearning stated, “We are very excited to have Dave Espino become one of our first teachers and make his online courses available through our platform. With someone of his credibility and success, it is a great endorsement of ULearning, and a vote of confidence in the global distribution machine we are building. ”
