What, exactly, is it about Odijoo that makes it so unique? Open education has become something of a buzzword, although harnessing the powers of the Internet to get ahead in your educational and training goals is certainly a cause worth pursuing. But for those of you have tried to navigate learning and/or teaching tools on your own, you know what a jungle the Internet can be.

The great thing about Odijoo is the simplicity of its design and functionality. Often, small and medium sized businesses need a tool to train and teach their employees the skills they need to know to maximize their potential. Training employees can become expensive, however, especially for SMBs with limited budgets and revenues. Odijoo is the first e-Learning platform that combines free Learning Management (LMS) capabilities and course authoring in one. Odijoo is the first of its kind, enabling people with little technical know-how to create lessons and even entire online campuses with just a few clicks.

But lesson creation is only the beginning of Odijoo’s capabilities. Once you’ve created a lesson that employs file saving and sharing, PowerPoint integration, quiz-making, etc., you can go one step further and compile lessons into courses and even courses into entire campuses. While most eLearning tools are fractious in nature–you have to create content on one site, teach on another, administer and host on yet another site, Odijoo combines all three into one free e-Learning platform. Once you’ve created the content, users can log into Odijoo, and start learning virtually immediately.

Odijoo gives content creators full control of the e-Learning solutions they create. You can decide who is invited to join in on your lesson or course or you can have completely open access. What’s more, you can even decide to charge a fee to those enrolled in your courses or set of courses. Odijoo asks only for a ten percent commission on what you earn, and the rest is yours to keep.

Another great function of Odijoo that sets it apart from others of its ilk is its ability to integrate with social networking sites. As most of us who use the Internet now know, social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, and Ninga have moved beyond their humble mostly-for-entertainment beginnings. Facebook and its relatives enable any information to gain a fast following for free through word-of-mouth. Odijoo also offers a review function for learners, so you can get quick, honest feedback on your created content, and those looking to learn something new will be able to make informed decisions about which courses to enroll in based on these reviews.

Odijoo combines the best of the user-friendly, socially-connected Internet into one web-based and free LMS and e-Learning platform, that has the potential to transform how companies train their employees and how teachers educate their students. What’s more, anyone wanting to learn something new can absorb information quickly and easily. In this way, Odijoo is a perfect online tool for almost anyone.
