It’s been over a year since I gave away my first business idea and I thought it about time to give away another one. This idea only occured to me recently after trying to pass my CCNA. I personally find, that reading material, that I don’t necessarily enjoy, truly painful to say the least and the CCNA was no exception! I found it rather agonising reading through the books and manuals and found it to be a poor use of time and highly frustrating! 😳
Even though I created mind maps and I covered a lot of ground I think where I failed was lack of understanding with regards to the application of certain priciples of networking. I find that certain topics within the I.T. world, for example: subnetting, tend to have extremely long winded explanations where it truly isn’t necessary can could be explained with very simple analogies or illustrations.
So this is my idea:
As far as I can see, there are very few, if any at all, I.T. audio books that can be used as study aids when people study for exams such as the CCNA. I.T. text books generally are about 400 – 700 pages long and as I mentioned previously, are dominated by truly long winded explanations and technical jargon, that can be replaced with very simple analogies and illustrations. So why not create simple MP3 I.T. audio book summaries or revision notes that people can listen to while also doing other activities e.g. running.
When creating the audio books, they don’t necessarily have to be the entirity of a text book from start to finish. They could easily be revision notes that people can listen to while they’re at work or as they’re going to sleep!
This whole area has yet to be tapped and would need thorough exploration and experimentation but I definitely feel that this has the potential to be a lucrative idea! In many ways it’s a paradox that the I.T. world, the industry at the leading edge of technology, has yet to catch up with the rest of the world with very a simple application of technology that already exists. It could even be used in conjunction with lab software that you might purchase
So there we have it! A very simple idea with limitless potential. I would love to be able to explore this idea further but it simply isn’t a passion of mine. But who knows, maybe this is something that you might love to do and try out? 😉
I.T. geeks are people too you know! 😆
