I’ve been toying with the idea of creating an e-learning course to teach people the basics of personal finance for over a year now – which stemmed from some personal finance workshops I’ve been a part of at UofT.
I’d like to make it as comprehensive as possible, but note that the first course I would develop would be geared towards those who are NOT going to be DIY’ers, but rather just want to get a basic grip so that they can deal more effectively with their financial advisors, mortgage officers, bankers, insurance agents, etc.
The course will include quizzes, tests, videos, and of course text.
After the basic course is developed, I would then create a more in-depth course for those who wanted to be more involved. However, for now I’d like to get your input on what broad topics you think need to be included. Please feel free to post a comment with a brief note, or a more in-depth note if you want to weigh in in detail. I imagine it will be between six months and one year before the course is launched.
