Odijoo: eLearning Simplified

Odijoo is a free web-based eLearning platform that allows users to have their own personalized online space from which to create, publish, share and monetize online courses. It is built around a SaaS-based (Software as a Service) model, using software to bring on-demand access to course development and Learning Management services. Odijoo is an end-to-end online learning platform, as it allows users to create, teach, administer and host their online courses all from one place. It is a combination of course creation software, a learning management system, hosting services and social networking tools, all in one web-based application.

A course in Odijoo can be defined as fully-hosted course content presented in a series of online modules, topics, lessons and pages. Users can create interactive online courses using the built-in authoring tool, or by importing a PowerPoint Presentation. Odijoo courses can incorporate features such as formatted text, audio narration, video, images and more. Once a course is created, the content can be offered for sale to other Odijoo users as a syndicated course, or imported into a classroom and delivered to students.

A classroom in Odijoo can be defined as a space, which contains an imported course, an administrator, teachers and classroom activities.
