Overloaded with education courses
Nowadays we have a lot of opportunities to study online: we can listen to courses from famous universities even free of charge or have another zoom conferences. At the same time it is a good time for entrepreneurs or other active people to run new courses. Do you agree that most of the people are already overloaded with different educational courses and want to exit zoom as soon as their work allows? Or are new projects still relevant?

I think new projects are still relevant if they are original or, even if not, are well-structured and well-presented. There is so much mediocre stuff around that any quality offering deserves a look, or should I say a hearing.

Putting material on the internet is relatively easy if you have the equipment and the skills, and there is no shortage of people able to do it ; the product is not necessarily of a high standard, though of course there is also much of value. Just as in a traditional classroom teaching environment you have to be selective about what you sign up for.

Quality of content would always matter. However, few observations from my side are:
a. We do not always find what we are looking for.
b. Even if we find some reference or course on what we are looking for, it may not be structured (as Adrian also mentioned) the way we would prefer.
c. Even if the course is how we would prefer it to be, it may not exactly match our learning aptitude. So we move on to another course.

Like-wise, there could be multiple reasons why new projects would still be relevant in the online educational sector.
But, I do agree that all these content can be overwhelming sometimes, and disconnnecting once in a while from the virtual set-up provides much needed relief.
