Create an Online Training Center in 4 Easy Steps

Monday, January 18th, 2010
Odijoo’s Campus feature allows trainers and teachers to bring their courses online and administer them selectively to a group of students of their choosing. How?
1. Create your campus by emailing Odijoo.
You can name your Campus whatever you like and you will receive a dedicated Odijoo URL based on your choice. For example, if you plan to teach french in your campus, you can apply to start a campus located at Frenchcourses.Odijoo.com.
2. Set your Campus to Private for a secure and private solution.
The private vs. public feature of Odijoo campuses allows you to determine whether you want your campus to be accesible by the public, or limited to only students you wish to invite. If you’re a trainer or teacher, setting your Campus to private will ensure that only your students will see your course materials.
3. Personalize your Campus.
You can personlize your campus – add your organization’s logo to show your students the company running the Campus or add a welcome message to inform your students of Campus rules and how to navigate the Campus.
4. Add Courses and Students
Once you’re satisfied with your Campus, you can add your courses to it and the teachers and administrators can invite students to their courses and begin training! It’s that simple to have your own e-Training or e-Learning center within Odijoo.

Syndicating your Knowledge Online in 4 Easy Steps

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010

If you’re a subject matter expert, syndicating your knowledge means sharing your expertise with students, without needing to be a teacher. For example, if you know a lot about Sales, you can create a Sales Training Course and rather than teaching it to your students, you can sell the course for whatever price you want. Once buyers buy the course, they can either use it to learn themselves, or publish it into a classroom and re-teach it to their own students.

You can get started in four easy steps:

  1. First, turn your knowledge into an eLearning course, with Odijoo’s built-in course authoring tool. Alternatively, if you have PowerPoint slides ready, you can use Odijoo’s Import PowerPoint function.
  2. Make your courses more effective, by adding colors, images, embedded videos, narration and more, using Odijoo authoring tool.
  3. Set a syndication fee of your choosing for the course – this is the price each user pays when they buy your course.
  4. Share your course with Odijoo users in the Odjioo Marketplace.

Now all you need to do is sit back and watch as your knowledge gets monetized.¬†Every time¬†someone purchases your syndicated course, you get paid – it’s that simple!
