Hello Jeff..thanks for this information. 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. I don’t understand the monthly fees that all of the platforms you mentioned seem to have. Wondering if you have suggestions of elearning developers that produce the courses without any ties into monthly fees and revenue sharing. Thank you!

While Kajabi (above), is a great all-in-one choice for solopreneurs, Academy of Mine is a better bet for small businesses and organizations that want an all-in-one option. The platform supports SCORM courses, sophisticated quizzing and assessment, and issuance of continuing education credit. And, because it is built on top of WordPress, it has top notch capabilities for building out a full-featured Web site.
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.

Bob – It sounds like you probably do need a platform (and I always recommend having a Web site in addition to whatever platform you use) You might be better off with one of the companies I cover at the following link (LearningCart, in particular, could be a good choice, based on the little bit I know about your situation – https://www.learningrevolution.net/learning-management-system-for-small-business/

If your business relies on having top-notch video quality (and if you are in the online course business this is definitely true), then having access to Professional video editing software is an investment worth doing. Advanced editing software provides many special effects and helps you take your video creation from beginner to Pro Level. Such editors can help you create the most stunning videos, rivalling what film makers can produce. We tested some of the top video editing software and we present here the results so that you can find the program with the right features for you.

For some, the topical outline may be sufficient in documenting and communicating the course curriculum to the team before diving into content development (step 3). Others may find additional value from creating a detailed storyboard. For example, if you’re working with a team of other designers, or with a programmers who need a blueprint for your online course creation process.

Your Learning Revolution is so informative. Thank you. I’m wanting to create a website for Enrolled Agents to earn their annual CPE credits. The material is going to be a self-study course using a downloaded written course to their computer. After they have studied the material, they go back to my website and take a test, it they pass with 70% I submit the credits to the IRS and then I send the student a certificate of completion that they can download and keep in their file. 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. I will also need for the site to accept credit card payments and be able for the student to go online and take a test and receive an instant percentage grade so they will know if they need to take the test again something like “congratulations, you passed’! 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. (they can study off-line that way) What do I need to buy to get this started? I’m so excited about doing this and your site it so informative I’m so glad to have met you. Please let me know when you get a chance, Thank you again, Take care, Linda.
A screencast is a digital recording of computer screen output, usually containing audio narration. Sometimes you may need to show your learners specific steps of a procedure on a computer (e.g., how to use a specific software or simply recording the slides of a Powerpoint presentation). Screen-recording tools are very easy and often free to use. You can use:

So there you go I'm just going through the rest of it I'm previewing it and checking it's all there and when you are done you can click 'looks good continue' and gets on to section where you are generating the final video.  This just takes you a couple of minutes. You can go away and make your coffee, and you do another website and you come back and it would have done it's thing in the background that's absolutely fine as I said content samurai has an awesome image finder and actually even gives you a link you can reference just in case YouTube gets funny about you having various images and stuff in there. I always think it is good to reference where you get images from because hey the photographers put the time it's going to take them so if I can I am going to reference them and content samurai gives you a nice link straight to....you know it automatically generates it so you can link that straight away really easily and this is just going through generation slides and video. It's, I mean content samurai what it's done for my company and all my clients that I work with as well it allows me to create videos superfast and actually have impact and get found in the rankings and I can really say it's the ones who that has literally changed the way we create contents and changed the way people are receiving our contents. In another post I will talk about the ways that you can also you this video to create other contents but its endless....we create a podcast out of this, we created video podcast, we export it to slides, share so create a slide deck and it's so many more ways that people can now view my content because we run it through content samurai, so pretty much any blogger, any business owner, any startup certainly just to have this ability to create so much extra content and content that people want is just priceless.
Hi, looking for advice on which site to list a Personal Development course – we sell the course via our website and its all set up and ready to go so we don’t need Course Creation tools like quite a few of the sites seem to want you to use. 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?
Just to put cost in some context, when I designed and built one of the very first eLearning platforms for Sun Microsystems in 1996 to train my sales force, I had to hire 23 web page creators and instructional designers to build my site. Sixty hours of on-line training cost me $1.34 million dollars. Of course, at that time, no alternatives existed and Saba, Blackboard and Moodle all came by to see SunTAN (Sun Training Access Network) to see my learner-centric model. I used Java to create custom pages on the fly depending on the audience (salespeople want just the basics and sales engineers wanted everything possible). But within 2 years I was able to show the CEO a >125% ROI (increased sales and getting them trained faster than in the classroom) and I never had any problem keeping my content updated from that point on when execs understood eLearning’s importance. Of course we didn’t call it eLearning then, Cisco’s John Chambers coined that word a year later. Today I am using LearnDash to create a site for my 4000-person active senior community and the cost will be more like $15,000.
