Odijoo is an asynchronous eLearning platform, which takes a student-centered online learning approach. The goal of Odijoo is to facilitate 2-way learning in the classroom setting: student to student, student to teacher and teacher to student. This means combining the functionality of an eLearning platform, with social networking features.
One of these features is the Odijoo Marketplace. What is the Odijoo Marketplace? Picture iTunes, or Amazon, but instead of music and media being exchanged, it is knowledge, in the form of online courses.
Users can connect with one another and share knowledge in the Odijoo marketplace; users can search for courses by name, subject matter or industry and enroll either for free or for a fee (if the classroom administrator has set one) and instantly begin learning!
If you’re a subject matter expert or trainer, you can also create a course in Odijoo and add it to the Marketplace as either a free or paid enrollment course. If you choose to charge, for every user that enrolls in your course or buys your syndicated course content, Odijoo™ deducts 10% from the purchase price (with a $5 minimum charge) and you keep the rest. If you don’t make money, we don’t charge!
Odijoo’s Marketplace also has a Course Rating System built inside it – after enrolling in a course and taking it, users can rate it. This involves users giving the course a rating out of 5 stars and leaving a comment about their experiences with it. The system works much like that of Amazon or Expedia and is designed to give potential students a better idea of the quality of a course, before enrolling.
