So there you are, trying to find some rough estimates for creating an online course that will give you an idea of how much money you need. We can’t promise not to say “It depends” in this article, but we’ll try to provide you with ballpark figures just to give you some context.
How much it will actually cost you to develop an online course depends — this phrase seems to be a necessary evil — on many different factors that come into play. The course complexity, its length, and who will actually develop the course (you or a third party company), will affect whether the total cost is $5,000 or $150,000. To find out if your project’s cost is closer to the lower or upper limit, you’ll need to take the time to detail the task.
