The opportunity to work in student affairs came up and I have been working with students ever since. I spend a lot of time with my family. I love animals. My favorite music is Reggaeton and I love to go dancing. As a first generation college student, education has always been important to me. I have always wanted to be in a career where I was able to make a difference and I believe working in Student Affairs has allowed me to help students make a difference in their lives.
I spend a lot of my free time crafting and working on DIY projects. Need Help?
Thanks Ivar. Very well written and explained Jeff. Beside comparing pricing and other features, one thing you can add here is the security of the content on any platform. For the content creators, the most important asset is content. The course platform should be able to secure the content from downloading, copying or sharing user accounts after purchase.
This will have a direct impact on the business. This is an amazing resource. Great starting point although we did locate some other ones. LearnUpon and lightspeed for example. One is more an enterprise model and the other used by some celebrities. I have five professional degrees in subjects that I am passionate about to my core. I want to attract self-directed students. LearnWorlds has so many professionals on staff that they understood that concept and are helping me to attract those who need CPD credits as an ESL teacher or a respectable career as an English Tutor in as little as a week.
Thanks or sharing your experience, Jacqueline. I am sure other readers here will find it helpful. And, the amount of support that individual course producers get, even from the same platform company, can vary pretty widely. Just additional points for readers here to keep in mind. Thanks for sharing your comment about LearnWorlds and similar tools.
We were planning to use a full-blown LMS quite costly to deliver courses for professional development. Per your suggestion, I checked out LearnWorlds and was quite impressed. Have you used the drip marketing? Hi, Jeff. I just wanted to say thanks for this post. I want to create my first online program with videos and power point presentations and PDF files. It is by far the most helpful one I have read!
Thank you so much! I want to create a technical course having mostly PPTs and screen-cast videos. I thought of creating the same in Udemy because they will market the courses. Hi Jeff, Your Learning Revolution is so informative.
The material is going to be a self-study course using a downloaded written course to their computer. The students need 72 credits every 3 years so the site needs to keep their information so when they come back and open their profile the completed courses with be there. There will not be any videos or webinars and anything live just a list of all the courses available, a cart for them to pay and a student profile for the course to be downloaded to their computer. Please let me know when you get a chance, Thank you again, Take care, Linda.
Hi Linda — What you describe will require a more sophisticated solution than anything covered in this post. I will e-mail you to discuss. Wow, thank you for compiling this list and putting all of these great resources together! Anyone looking to create online courses will surely be lucky to stumble upon this piece.
So much to choose from! It needs to be intuitive, easy for the user, and not cost a bundle. Thanks and any suggestions? Hi Jeff Thank you for a comprehensive post. There is so much choice out there, the more you read the more confusing things become. I am hoping you can simplfy and point me in the right direction. I am setting up an education website, where I will primarily sell recorded webinars. I have a wordpress site and purchased webinar ignition WI under the assumption that I could record webinars and offer them through WI.
So now I am looking for software that I can integrate into my website and allow me to sell recorded webinars multiple times to different people. I hope this information makes send! Could you tell me the top 3 platforms you would recommend. Lisa — A recorded Webinar is just a video and pretty much all of the platforms listed here will enable you to set up a video as a course and selling as many times as you want to whoever you want. Just to help you narrow the choices, I would recommend starting with Teachable or Thinkific both listed above — Jeff.
Can you recommend a reputable company that creates scorm compliant elearning videos for LMS platforms? I have books to sell, as well. I also teach LIVE seminars. Any other suggestions you might have? Thank you! The fees quoted for LearnDash are not a once-only fee — they are for a one-year subscription. Barbara — Thanks for noting that. I work with a non-profit arts and crafts group.
We want to create courses for our members. We have multiple instructors who will create the content, but our group will actually present the courses. All of these platforms seem to be focused on a direct relationship between course and instructor. I need something that will allow for lack of a better term a middle-man to manage the process. All the classes are pre-build, on-demand. Some might have a weekly live broadcast. All courses are lessons, and are presented over the course of a month.
Bob — I would nee to know a bit more about the content and process you have in mind — i. I have read all of the posts but continue to have questions regarding my desire to create training modules, with testing and online completion for businesses. I want to sell customized courses to businesses, perferbaly small businesses. My idea is to find their training needs and create the module based on their business. I am assuming it will need to be cloud based.
I am a retired technology and business instructor and looking to fulfill my creative outlet and make some extra money if possible. I have used educational platforms but not the current offerings that are overwhelming me when trying to make this decision. I want to be sure I am not overlooking valuable information. Any suggestions? Thanks and great posts and information! Any of the platforms here could, in theory, do what you describe.
It will depend on how you need the purchase and access to happen. Will the clients always come to your site, for example, or do some need to be able to run the courses on their own platforms? Do you want to provide clients with their own, branded entrance into purchasing your courses? How much control do you want to provide clients for enrolling and managing their own learners? HoneyCoach allows you to sell without fixed costs, and allows you to sell single videos, online classes and coaching programs.
Thanks for noting. CourseIndex is already linked to under the Course Merchant entry above. Hi nice job with this comprehensive write-up, I tried still cannot really figure the difference between LMS and authoring tools. Is authoring tool a part of an LMS? I actually thought authoring tools are just platforms used to link texts, pictures, videos and audios to form a flow in a presentation… so not so sure how that was independently used for elearning in the past.
Mike — Good question. Eventually, though, LMSes started including tools to do just what you describe — i. The main issue with this is that every LMS does it a bit different, So, if you build your courses in the LMS, you will almost certainly have to re-build them when you move to a new LMS. Authoring tools are LMS-independent. You build your course in the authoring tool and then can import it into any LMS. There are standards that have been developed to support this — SCORM being the main one historically.
For some additional info on all of this see:. So, if you treat your lessons as courses, and then also sell packages that bundle multiple courses together, you can achieve what I think you are talking about. These are some good options. However, where can we find partners to help create the content or build courses for us?
Just wondering, does anyone know of any new online course software packages similar to LearnDash [but not Learndash] that are more like a stand-alone program with a one time fee? I believe the pricing model may be similar though. You may want to contact them. Hi Jeff, I was looking for some useful Online Courses online and suddenly found your post.
You have shared very useful information about the online course platforms which will surely make the process of choosing easier for everyone. This way, people looking for online training can get an excellent and wide selection of the latest platforms that provide online courses. Also, big thanks for keeping this useful list updated. Here, I want to share a platform which provides useful business, computer, safety, banking, management, leadership and several other useful courses.
This is a wonder post and has truly crystallized everything for me. I was originally thinking of setting up everything through WordPress but am now gravitating towards Thinkific. What are the potential risks and repercussions of doing this?
Is it not that big of a deal or is it not advisable? My thoughts are this. As long as you can export the customer list from the old system with their passwords and then import it into the new system you are fine. But I am not sure if most systems support this. Any input is appreciated. Really, it comes down to the nature of your content and how much you rely on the tools contained within any specific platform to create your courses.
If you rely on those tools heavily, then you will have to redo quite a bit when you go to a new platform. But it could be a big deal if that is not the case. As far as dat goes, with most platforms you will be able to export the names and e-mail addresses of your customers, but there is a very good chance you would not be able to simply export passwords and import them into your new system. This would require a more complex level of migration unless you have the tech skills will probably require some help.
That said, it is often possible to import the names and e-mails and then have people reset their passwords to simply establish a new password in the new system. After taking a subscription of any type of these platforms — what will happen to the website, domain and contents upon cancellation?
Are they easily transferable? Or I find cheaper prices else where? Ally — The domain remains in your control always. You would just point it to your new site. Content is a bigger question. The ones that are WordPress-based would technically have an export functionality for all of the content and you should be able to get a copy of the database — all of which would you allow to set most if it back up in another WordPress installation.
But there is definitely a lot of devil in the details — so, be sure to ask about this up front and make sure you feel confident you will be able to get your content out in a usable form. Keep in mind that, when you build courses in a proprietary delivery platform, as opposed to in a separate authoring tool, you are almost always going to have to do some re-constructing when you switch to a new site.
Very glad to have found this post! My courses are pre-recorded videos, 1 — 4 hours in length and ready to upload. I have been scouring around trying to find a good platform that can do a few things I need:. Does anyone know of anything that might be a good fit? I have sold on Udemy before for consumer level, non-credentialed courses and I have been tinkering with Thinkific which I like very much, but they do no limit the ability for the viewer to simply skip to the end of the video as pretend they completed it.
Did you get a response to your post. Your situation is very similar to mine and I would be interested in the answer. I wanted to set up all our courses with Academy Mine a couple of years ago. We have one large 12 part course and 15 smaller 4 part courses and over students.
I paid someone else to set it all up and learn how to use it as I just didnt have the time myself. Students email their course work submissions to me. It works and costs nothing but I often wish for a more streamlined way to complete assessments. Hi guys! COM it would be great if you can add it to the list! For any questions please write us to [email protected]. There are plenty of marketplaces for recorded courses but does anyone have leads for live, realtime courses marketplace.
So we are looking for new places to sell our ready made course online to gain a wider audience and sales. Any recommendations and wise words for us? It sounds like what you really need are good ways to drive traffic to a sales page for your course on your Web site.
The best way, by far, is through your own e-mail list. Great list! Jeff, You will want to update your content here, if you are not already working on this. Thanks for chiming in with the update info — Udemy changes often enough that it can be hard to keep up. The post has been updated to reflect this info. I am brand new to this. I did not even know there were such platforms. I have looked at some of the reviews here, but no idea which to try.
There are a lot of them. The one that jumped out at me is called Teachable. Since I am just starting out, I have no idea how many classes I might sell, so I cant afford to pay a monthly and they just take a percentage of my sells. What I am looking for though are suggestions and recommendations. I dont want to invest lots of time and money into developing classes on Teachable, if its not a good platform. Phillip — Hopefully some other will chime in hear with their comments.
What it really comes down to is whether they have everything you feel you really need to support both your learning and business model. They are very responsive and will make changes where possible that the big players would never make for us. Highly recommend. Thanks for this great list, and keeping it updated as well. Would you say there are any platforms better suited than others for offering courses about professional skills development?
Not really — it depends on the nature of the material, the learning objectives, and the audience. In theory, any of the platforms listed here could support professional skills development. I tried other platforms first, but theirs is easier to use. I am checking out withcoach as well.
Click here for an example. Thanks for outlining all of these options. I am curious to know if any others have a community building around them where the instructors can help share students? Good question. I know both Teachable and Ruzuku have strong Facebook groups for people authoring in their systems.
How about Alison, anybody had an experience with this company? I see they offer free courses but make some profit from the certificates. Hi Carol, please tell us about your experiences with online course platforms. Hi, thanks, this is very helpful! Hopefully someone else here will have some input, though.
Please send us an email at [email protected] and someone will reach out to discuss. Thanks Jay. While I understand the criticism related to such aspects of the platform as controlling user data and communications with students as well as some difficulties with the review process, I have had an excellent experience with them.
The bottom line is, Udemy courses sell. They just have some specific requirements for your video files that they use to manage quality and standardize the service bit. At any rate, I just wanted to say that I have 19 courses on Udemy, with one more in the works right now, and I make more money on there per course than any other platform that I have tried BY FAR. Oh, and also I have recently discovered two newer marketplaces similar to Udemy that market the courses for you and do a profit share: CyberU, and On-Ed.
I am in the process of testing them, I will return to the thread to let you know my experience. Hey Jeff Cobb, you done a great job at providing a well rounded list of online education websites. Here is another that is a great website which has allot ot offer for people starting to develop there business skills and help get there business started in just 3 days.
If you want to help grow the mentorship and community which is startupacademy. Out of the box solutions are much better for small businesses as they can get started easily themselves at a relatively low pricepoint. I used Teachble to build my first school where I presently have ten courses available with ten more yet to upload. However, while I do like the way that their software makes my school look, it was pretty steep learning curve to figure out how to use it to create a school and courses since their website is not at all intuitive.
In addition, I found numerous small annoyances with their software which made the process more cumbersome. But, the main problem with Teachable is that their advertising leads you to believe that all you have to do is build the school and students will flock to sign up! However, nothing could possibly be further from the truth!!! Fortunately, I have over twenty-five years of retail experience and thus, I knew that going in.
However, while they do provide some learning resources with their blog and their free webinars, they do not have single resource that provides you with a complete step-by-step process for marketing your courses. Also, they fail to make it clear that marketing an online course is very different from marketing a standard web site.
Thus, I had to spend numerous hours on YouTube watching instructional videos to discover that, unlike a standard web site where you build, and then publish, the site and then vie with competitors for top ranking on Google and Bing, you instead have to build a permission based e-mail list to market to. But, they also fail to provide you with the resources to accomplish that task and thus, you have to turn to other service providers such as Mail Chimp and Timer Monkey to launch an e-mail marketing campaign.
Plus, while they do have some resources on building an e-mail list, it is woefully inadequate and far less than clear. In addition, on the few occasions I have contacted their customer service for clarification, I have gotten a couple of good answers from one technician and half-assed answers from others.
For instance, I read an article on their blog about how to implement an evergreen e-mail sequence but, it was poorly written and left out quite a bit of pertinent information. But, when I contacted their customer service to ask for clarification, they had no idea what I was talking about and repeatedly gave me half-assed answers to my questions!
Thus, I had to turn to a video on YouTube to learn how to implement an evergreen e-mail marketing sequence. But, what has really set me off is that when I first signed up with them, they sent me e-mails on a regular basis but, suddenly stopped doing so.
Then, the other day, I got a pop up window at the bottom of my screen informing me that their Teachable Summit was starting right then! So, I followed the link and signed up for their summit. But, not only did not receive notice of the impending summit via e-mail, I did not receive a confirmation e-mail that I had signed up for the summit!
Thus, I contacted their customer service again to ask why I received neither notice of the summit nor a confirmation e-mail and that is when the run around started! First, I was told to check both of my e-mail addresses and my Spam folder. But, after my reply to that message, I was then told that their e-mails had bounced back to me too many times and that I had been removed from their e-mail list! However, I find all of this very suspicious since their e-mails to me suddenly stopped after I received a survey from them where I left poor feedback for them because their advertising is misleading, they only provide half of the solution for marketing an online course, and very little of the information needed to do so.
But, after informing the customer service agent of this, I have not had reply from them of any sort whatsoever! Thus, I am now searching for a new home for my online outdoor academy! They are two totally different products. I recommend going with ConvertKit for your mailing list provider, incidentally. But, I hope you can have some more reasonable expectations of your service providers.
You may also like this e-Learning platform which allows you to create your own e-shop — marketplace and there sell your courses for FREE and with no extra effort! This e-shop function can be switched on by one click in the platform settings. You only need to select the courses you want to display. Learning Cart has been fantastic for me!
I entered the field on Teachable because they provide a lot of guidance on how to get your course s noticed. So, I moved to Thinkific who has a little bigger feature set, but their tools for creating the home and landing pages were not very flexible and did not offer much for customizing, unless you are a coder. Their tools for customizing their template are much better and they have all the features I need.
Most of all, their support is fantastic! With that said, our business model is to provide training on a wide range of business topics, from technical to management. I do not teach any of the courses. Instead, I find experts who have a course or idea and want to make some money, I market the courses and manage the site.
You just teach! Yes this is great content but now we have many more other option. I just want to leverage off an e-Learning site for marketing purposes. Hello Jeff.. My needs seem to be a little different, and I hope you can be able to guide me. I work for a non-profit organization and we offer elearning courses for business owners at no charge. Our approach is to develop the content, have someone produce it as an ecourse — and we own it.
Wondering if you have suggestions of elearning developers that produce the courses without any ties into monthly fees and revenue sharing. There is an another very good online teaching platform called Learnyst Teach Online. They help you build your own branded school. Their online learning platforms are affordable, simple to use, and cater to educators, tutors, coaches, and people looking to start a virtual school.
Thanks for the excellent article. Atbetterce continuing education courses are designed to provide the much needed workforce skills needed to acquire professional caliber for a lot of in-demand occupations and all our courses are state approved in many professions. Hi everyone! So sad???? Thanks for the Article Jeff. But I like the way you described Ruzuku. My first course so I want as much help as possible.
Will teachable be as supportive, why did you them the especial nod? Great information thank you very much is there a platform that offers a subscription based pay I am a success coach and work with a lot of companies that would rather pay by the month and have access for all of their employees then by the course. Thank you for your help. I started using teachable and really like the functionality, UI, and ease of setting up the course. The problem I ran into is that files cannot be larger than 2GB.
A lot of our training videos are 3GB and more, so we cant upload them. You own the content that you put into Udemy. I realize this is a few years old now… but I am looking simply for an online platform that I can publish the course and not charge any money for. Is there anything like that out there? Thanks Jeff for the info. If i create a course on teachable can I use social media to market the Teachable course?
It looks very user friendly feels like a social media platform and it has a lot of great features. You get the benefit of all the MATRIX features, but without having to commit to monthly fees — you only pay a small percentage of what you sell. We also give you full support, free of charge. We are offering some fantastic deals for early adopters, or if you want to get your own branded version of MATRIX, we can also help with that too.
We are a small religious order with a newly formed seminary wherein we would like to offer an eLearning option. We would like something more like an authoring tool platform, like Moodle, to create our courses and track everything from our own website. You might give Educadium a shot — it is Moodle-based, but much friendlier to use, and they deal with the security. Hi Jeff — thanks for this great blog and the lists of online course platforms! Is Academy of Mine a real concern? It offers four apparently spoof course about cherries and a single 1hr 17min explanatory video their understanding of an online course?
What do you think is the best platform to import an existing powerpoint presentation and convert it to an online course? As if March New Kajabi is now available and definitely a platform worth checking out! Not only can you create online courses and membership sites you can bike your entire business on it. Includes website, hosting, video hosting, landing pages, affiliate tracking and soon email marketing.
This is the platform many online marketers like Brendon Burchard use! I must admit, most of these websites are too expensive or offer little features for small start-ups. I hate that I have to pay a monthly fee for VAO, but i like their platform set-up. I may try both and see which one performs best. We shall see though. Give your customers on demand access to courses and leverage your core brand in minutes, not months. Great list!!
We just launched a couple days ago and our online course marketplace niche is Man Skills or courses targeting men. We are using Teachable to build our marketplace because they are awesome. So anyone with skills in Hunting, Preparedness and tons more are welcome in!!! I created a course on Udemy last. It was easy and they provide support. BUT I just learned they changed thier pricing structure, which suddenly knocks my course out.
This is putting me in a terrible position. Be warned!! For a starter, price is also key factor. Thanks for sharing , now checking all these links. At a site like Udemy, you at least know there are many people showing up looking for courses. Of course, there is still no guarantee your course will get a lot of visibility. To be honest, if you can be effective promoting yourself on Udemy, then you can probably be successful promoting through your own site — and even if you have a course on Udemy, you will almost certainly still want to have your own site to support promoting the Udemy course and — very important — collecting e-mail addresses.
Hey Jeff, great post! Have you checked out Thinkific? Curious to hear what you think of their platform. Hello Jeff Great article. Do you have any knowledge of platforms specifically targeting creators and consumers of learning courses for children, k-8? They are available on our own company site as well as Udemy, Gumroad, Teacherspayteachers, but for the most part these sites are not specific to children. We have more than 1 million registered users. My email address is [email protected].
My two courses are published on Udemy. It does not give a customized brand. I do not want to use their hosting but keep my domain at one place. Check out Keeplearningforward. They do all the work at the live events, you just have to do the teaching — they book it, promote it, provide staff, etc.
I would not recommend Udemy. Their support is horrible. No one answers emails or support tickets. You also need to check out Learnexa. I just started some courses on Udemy and love the platform. Any ideas on the best platform for this typos of model? The article glazes over a lot of hard facts about some of the platforms. All I can say is let the buyer beware. You need to ask about hidden charges and fees and understand what it is your doing.
Some of these platforms have no information on how to opt out or cancel once you sign up. Some of these sites have no point of contact and telephone number and emails that are truly bogus. With one of these well known platforms, I had to do a whois to find the real owner of the company and email him directly to cancel my account. Do not sign up for any reoccurring payment using your credit card.
You will find that your bank cannot stop the payment and the provider will not allow you to remove your credit car or cancel. I see a lot of slick advertising with pictures of the supporting staff shown as all being young, very diverse, affluent, and attractive and they only have a first name. I would suspect that a lot if not all the claims of endorsements on most of these sites are bogus.
Cliff — Thanks for your comments. And, I agree — do your homework and buyer beware. And, as I state clearly at the beginning, I do not endorse any of these products. This is starting point for doing the work that will — I hope — land you on the platform that is right for your needs. UDEMY does not and they have a great platform and process.
WizIQ has come a long way during last few months. We all know about its much loved Virtual Classroom. It recently launched Online Academy Builder — A DIY platform that allows users to create their own online teaching website in a few minutes. A lot of other improvements have also been made. Hi Jeff Great list thanks. Do you know of any particular LMS that offers interactive video with one or many students in the same way that Adobe Connect does?
The standard webinar format is OK but most seem to only have a text chat option for the students which can be limiting in terms of teaching. I have one question, being a real novice. Or alternatively — do people mix and match platforms. I saw e-lecta offers such classrooms where several teachers can have their own virtual room for teaching.
Anybody else? I also want to be able to sell webinars and other courses on the same platform. Any suggestion? It will allow you to sell Webinars and have a personal chatroom, social group for your students.
Also, it will support Interactive Classes created with authoring tools like Articulate, Captivate, etc. You can contact me through the site. Hi All, To sell courses online you can use Moodle as the LMS wherein you can create any number of courses and add course content related to them. Moodle has a robust system which can be used by site owners to manage and maintain courses. To sell them online you can use WordPress as the CMS wherein due to its simple and easy to use interface will help you to create a great user-interface for buyers on your site.
We have come up with a plugin which integrates both Moodle and WordPress which helps in sync of courses created in Moodle with WordPress. Edwiser has its own payment gateway which can be used by you to sell course individually, but if you wish to sell courses as products you could get the WooCommerce Integration extension which would help you in selling courses as products, sell one or bundle more than one course into product, set subscription for the product along with many WooCommerce features.
Hi Jeff. First off, excellent guide! My question really pertains to pricing model. Are you aware if most of the successful sites go with the standard monthly membership fees or do they go with a one-time purchase to get lifetime access?
It is an odd conundrum and one I have been thinking about while I am putting together my content. Thanks in advance for your response! Since the discussion is related to creating and selling courses online.
With the experience we have in this field, I recommend Moodle to be the best place to create courses online, you may find Moodle to be tedious but trust me once you start using it you will find it to be very handy. But when the plan comes to sell courses in Moodle, yes it is not easy so I would recommend use WordPress as front-end to create a dedicated site to sell your courses online.
Looking into these requirements we came up with Edwiser Bridge which integrates Moodle with WordPress, syncs courses created in Moodle to WordPress, along with the WooCommerce extension site owner can sell courses as products, even bundle more than one course as products. Thanks for posting this list! You saved me countless hours of work finding and investigating these options.
As a small business, your first paragraph resonated with me. I need an affordable SAAS solution. You rock! Thank you for this information. I was building a driver safety course on Udemy, but since I am basically a writer not a videographer, could not meet their requirements. Is there a place you would recommend for someone wanting to open a course solely based on writings? Thanks, John. Hi, I was wondering if you had any information on yescourse. Their platform is built on Moodle and integrates with Adobe Connect, and is used by many respected companies and universities, as well as Kaplan test prep etc.
Thank you for this post! Melanie — Refined Data has a nice solution, and I have included them in selection processes I have run before, but I think of them as more appropriate for larger organizations — rather than the individual subject matter entrepreneurs and small firms that are the main audience here.
Am I off the mark in thinking that? On top of that you get the opportunity to convert your videos into interactive experiences with titles, bookmarks, definitions that you can add on the fly, without the need for expensive post-production and your texts into interactive ebooks with personalized notes, highlights etc.
More importantly, you get a set of tools that will help you create a vibrant learning community for your learners, like: — Personal profiles for your clients to present their skills and experiences — Social networking and People Search for your clients to be connected and form teams — Daily newspaper for your clients to be informed about the topic from the best relevant sources, — Gamification, with custom badges, for your clients to be motivated e.
Panos — Thanks for commenting. Looks like a nice solution. I will get it added in above. Sad that LearnWorlds. Once your Training company has sold its best content thanks to one of those great platform, you have to manage it! Our training management software for training companies bring the experience of more than clients, and just received the Brandon All Gold award. I think Udemy is the best since they are providing a powerfull course creation tool for free and also their review process in term of quality is better that other websites.
Quite a few on the list! Our platform allows businesses to create courses and tests in order to train their employees. We are offering a free 1 month subscription for new subscribers. Hi Jeff, Hi All, thank you Jeff for the listing of the platforms! Is it possible to upload and try to sell the course on different and several sites?
This is a great list. The focus here is on platforms that make it easy to sell courses. It lets you author complete courses — from simple to complex — and use e-commerce to gain revenue for them. Mainly, I want a clear means of offering and selling the courses and registering new students. The pricing I have seen on the Catalog option for Canvas is quite hefty — though, I have to say it is very nice.
Keep in mind that many less expensive options will offer the registration and e-commerce options you need while also offering options for plugging into common Webinar tools like GoToWebinar.

I, for example, decide a while back that I wanted to develop business brands that were distinct from my personal brand. Not having them tied too tightly to my personal brand makes that possible.
