Introduction to our online course catalog management software
While online learning has traditionally come second best to an in-person classroom approach, it is quickly becoming more popular than ever with both students and working professionals. Research and Markets have forecasted that the market for online education will reach $350 billion by the year 2025.
Given the impact that COVID-19 has had across the world which confined many students and professionals to their homes for a significant period of time, it’s likely that online learning will make even bigger strides than once anticipated.
While COVID-19 has had devastating impacts across wider society, it has demonstrated how useful and sustainable online learning can be. It allows people to learn remotely through unforeseen circumstances and can serve more people than a traditional localized approach.
This allows institutions and businesses to target more people than ever and allows their students to be more in control of their time and studying process.
Lots of universities and companies are taking on a hybrid approach, coupling both online and offline learning to offer the best experience possible for their students. This innovative approach is a great way to attract and retain pupils and shows your commitment to their success.
So how can your school or establishment offer both online and offline learning to students without drowning in various systems to keep everything organized? Simple: an online course platform!
An online course selling platform is an advanced solution that manages an online catalog of courses which handles payments, and registration and acts as a portal for all content-related needs.
They can be used for both online and offline learning and act as a central repository of information to keep everything organized and in one place. It’s the perfect solution for conferences, training programs and higher education.
So, if you’re dealing with various systems that can become jumbled and result in extra work and stress for both your staff and your students, it may be time to switch to an online course system that does all the hard work for you.
Benefits of using an online course platform
When it comes to purchasing solutions to make your life easier, it pays to work with an end-to-end provider. That means someone who is there from the registration process through to tracking the progress of each student.
CreativeMinds complete learning management (LMS) solution offers an end-to-end service that provides assistance with every step of the way.
While keeping multiple processes under one roof when it comes to your online and offline learning systems can help save you money by getting rid of unnecessary solutions you don’t need, online course catalog management platforms also offer companies and schools the following benefits:
Easily access courses
Instead of making your students browse through outdated printouts containing information about the courses you offer, online course management platforms let them browse, monitor and enroll in courses online.
Moving this process to an online platform for learning lets you easily make changes throughout the year and saves you money on printer fees. It also serves as a great way for students to compare the course list provided to see what they’re interested in with ease.
It’s important to give your students a user-friendly platform to work with when choosing and viewing their courses. Our course catalog management platform provides all students with a customized dashboard where they can easily view their courses and find out everything they need to know about the class.
This is a great way to publish all course-related content in one place instead of relying on multiple platforms or emails.
Students aren’t the only ones who get a personalized dashboard with our solution! Admins do, too!
Easily manage your students with our dashboard tailored especially for admins. This lets you stay on top of all your courses and student enrollment information and lets you view the information in an easily digestible way.
You can also generate reports and track payments, making it a fully functional dashboard that lets you keep track of your students, payments, courses and more.
Instead of relying on a separate system to process payments, our online course management platform ensures that students are charged for a class or course after registering and can even put them on a waitlist if needed.
Even better, our solution supports both large and small payment gateways with over 200 different gateways supported.
Hardly any courses out there are straightforward. Sometimes they come with multiple periods and can take place on different days of the week. Our online course management platform lets you manage multiple periods for each course, putting you in charge of the process instead of getting lost in paperwork.
Depending on the course, you may need to issue assigned seating charts to keep track of students and provide certain people with additional assistance. This helps you ensure that seating is given for students who need extra space for their wheelchair, crutches, etc. and helps maintain a sense of order in the classroom.
Our solution has a responsive calendar that contains all important dates associated with your courses. It also comes with adjustable filters to make the viewing process easier.
Instead of having to work with messy processes when it comes to distributing content to your students, our solution lets you place all course-related content in one place. This helps you get rid of the endless cycle of emails and phone calls when your students can’t find the course material needed.
It also serves as a useful tool for your teachers to ensure everyone is following the same content distribution process.
While lots of online course management solutions can only function on a PC, ours can be easily accessed and used on mobiles, desktops and tablets! This makes sure that your students can easily access everything they need when out and about or at home.
Do you need to add extra custom fields to certain course pages? Add a long list of courses without slowing down the platform? No problem.
Our solution lets you customize your course pages as and when needed and lets you add as many custom fields as you like! We provide tailored search and filter options making it easier than ever to navigate through a large number of courses.
Once your students have paid and registered for your course, our solution doesn’t stop there. You can easily export course data whenever you like and can create useful reports to share within your school or organization.
What does the process look like?
While a central online course creator for all your course-related needs may seem too good to be true, it’s actually a fairly straightforward process! We have created an easy-to-follow process to match our online course platform to your needs. These include:
