InformedTrades, the online community dedicated to helping individuals learn to trade forex, added four courses to its free online university for traders in the month of January -- a single month record for the online community. With the addition of these four courses, InformedTrades reached the milestone of having 50 free courses covering forex, futures, technical analysis, economics, and other subjects related to trading on its web site. The most popular courses in InformedTrades University are Basics of Trading 101, Volume Spread Analysis, and a free course from the independent educational firm Top Dog Trading.

All of the 50 courses contain videos and/or articles with images, and consist of individual lessons presented in a sequential format to help students learn subjects in a structured manner. Each lesson also has a comments section, thus enabling members to ask questions and learn via discussion. And after students go through a structured education via the courses, they can continue their education in an unstructured fashion via discussions in the forums and blogs on InformedTrades.

All courses are submitted by InformedTrades’ members and are posted to the site's university section after approval and light editing by Simit Patel, InformedTrades founder and central banker. Members are recognized with badges for their contributions, and these badges unlock certain privileges -- ranging from discounts on shopping to privileges enabling members to sell their own products and services on InformedTrades. “Our system is meant to help traders advance their careers as entrepreneurs, as well as provide members with a sense of personal satisfaction and social recognition for sharing their knowledge,” said Simit Patel, founder of InformedTrades.

As for the future, InformedTrades plans to continue adding more structured courses, as well as implementing a personalization system to allow members to find courses that are right for them and their style of trading. Increasing the presence of game play in the online learning community is also scheduled to be a part of InformedTrades’ evolutionary trajectory; quests that provide users with clear paths to undertake a trading education, and badges to reward traders for milestones reached along their journey, will also increasingly be implemented.
