Selling online courses in Odijoo means turning a course into a classroom that has an enrollment price attached and then offering seats to learn in the classroom to other Odijoo users. Odijoo users who wish to enroll in such a classroom, first pay the attached enrollment price and after doing so, are able to enroll as students and begin learning in the classroom. The numbers of seats, or students in a classroom, is unlimited and as such, so are the potential revenues for the classroom’s administrator. There are several ways to sell seats in a classroom in Odijoo:
Selling Classroom Seats in the Odijoo Marketplace
Users can make seats to their classrooms available for sale to any Odijoo user by publishing them to the Odijoo Marketplace. A classroom administrator can publish a classroom to the Marketplace by editing the classroom’s settings and ensuring that the Classroom Enrollment type is set to open enrollment and that the Publish to Marketplace checkbox is checked. Doing so will give all Odijoo users the ability to find the classroom, by doing a search based on name, subject matter or industry.
Finding a paid enrollment classroom and viewing the name and description is free for Odijoo users, but to enroll in it, a few additional steps are required. Users must first click to add the classroom to their cart and pay for it within Odijoo via PayPal. Once they do this, the classroom becomes available to them in the Classrooms Menu.
Selling Classroom Seats via Private Enrollment
Some users, such as trainers, private institutions or organizations wishing to train their employees, may wish to have their paid enrollment classroom available to only a select group of users and not all of Odijoo in the Marketplace. To charge for seats in a classroom, but only limit enrollment to a select group of students, users must set their classroom to private enrollment. A classroom administrator can create a paid private enrollment classroom editing the classroom’s settings and ensuring that the Classroom Enrollment type is set to closed (by invitation only) enrollment and that the Publish to Marketplace checkbox is not checked. Next, the administrator can invite students into the classroom. To do so, the administrator can either:
After being invited, users are sent an email to join a classroom. If they do not yet have an Odijoo account, they are prompted to first register for Odijoo before being allowed to view the invitation. Once they are logged into Odijoo, these users can click on the invitation link to add the classroom to their cart and pay for it within Odijoo via PayPal. Once they do this, the classroom becomes available to them in the Classrooms Menu.
Selling Classroom Seats from an Odijoo Campus
Administrators of both open enrollment and closed enrollment classrooms may also wish to set up their own campus and offer their paid enrollment classrooms from inside it. A campus is a fully branded and personalized space located at yourcampusname.Odijoo.com. Users can sign up for a campus for free and create their own online space in which to store, promote and sell seats to their classrooms. Campuses can be public for anyone to view and join or private and by invitation only.
More information about campuses is available on the Odijoo website, under Overview.
Pricing for Classrooms
If a classroom has an attached enrollment price, students add the classroom to their cart and pay for it within Odijoo via PayPal before being able to enroll. Odijoo receives the payment, retains 10% (with a $5 minimum charge) and the rest is payed to the classroom administrator after the end of the month.
