Increasing Your Completion Rates — How to Get Participants to Finish Your Course

Online courses are all the rage right now, but sadly, there are some staggering figures when it comes to completion… and not in a good way.Seth Godin shared on Tim Ferriss’s podcast once that most online courses have a drop off rate of 97%, and even his own courses have a drop off rate of 80%.80%?! That means that only 20% of the people who sign up for the course actually get through to finishing it.The thing is, Seth is not alone though.Studies over the years show that completion rates of online courses are traditionally very low. Here in Australia, Government Statistics showed that just 7% of students who used the VET FEE-HELP loan system, completed their course between 2010 and 2013.Yes, just 7%.With all of that in mind, it is important to take some time when planning your course, to consider how you can help your particpants complete it.
