February 2nd, 2016 ActiveRain Launches New ActiveRain University Site
Today, we quietly rolled out the new ActiveRain University site. Designed to make Real Estate education easily accessible, the new ActiveRain University will offer educational courses, videos, podcasts, and downloadable content and instruction from some of the best agents, trainers and teachers in the industry.
For the last few weeks, a group of 75 Rainers have been using the site and providing feedback. Today, we've pulled back the curtain and the new site is now available to everyone.
What Is ActiveRain University?
The new ActiveRain University allows you continual access to the extensive training ActiveRain has always provided-- in a new wrapper, with improved content, navigation and search. ARU is both free and advanced courses to help you grow your business. Whether you need simple 'how to insert a picture into a blog post' help or extensive training on 'How to Become A Dominant Listing Agent', our goal is for ARU to be your destination for the best training in the business.
Over the years, we've offered live training (remember RainCamps?), webinars (Blogging Bootcamp anyone?) and even extensive courses designed to make you a better online marketer (I know we have lots of IMSD graduates in the house). Expect more of the same, with a laser focus on delivering quality education.
What Will You See Today?
When you visit ARU today, you'll see
- Courses from ActiveRain and our recent webinars.
- Register for upcoming webinars right from the site.
- Miss our last webinar? You'll always be able to see recordings of the most recent webinars on ARU.
- We've also added short tutorial videos to help learn how use ActiveRain more effectively, and we're continuing to add to this content so you have a complete library of 'how to' videos for making the most of your ActiveRain membership.
- Discover upcoming live events by Ben Kinney, Brian Buffini with new partners added regularly, so be sure to stop in often.
- You can even indicate interest in courses we plan to offer in the coming months.
What Else Can You Expect In The Coming Months?
Beyond what you see today, we're hard at work with many of the top agents, trainers and educators in the industry to offer their courses on ActiveRain University. Our goal is to become the foremost non-denominational training destination in real estate.
Get Started Today
So head over and check out the site. Spend some time. Give us feedback using the contact us links or on this post.
Keep in mind, you will be asked to create an account on the site to view current content. This gives us the ability to more closely monitor what you like and, ultimately, helps us focus on creating more of the kind of content you want to see. You're also not able to log on with your current ActiveRain credentials, because we want the University to be open to everyone and anyone, even if they aren't currently an ActiveRain member.
We're glad to be able to offer you the new ActiveRain University and we hope you'll continue to visit the site as it evolves--we'll be adding new content all the time! It's just one of the many things we're investing in, to make ActiveRain the home for Real Estate Pros online!
Bob Stewart, Ben Kinney, David Wiggs, Dave Weldon and the rest of the AR team!
