Sell Online Courses: VdoCipher Integrates with Ready to Use Websites
At Vdocipher, our endeavour has always been to make it easy for content creators to make money from their online videos. We get regular requests from individual teachers and small e-learning companies to guide them on making e-learning portals to sell online courses. While websites to sell online courses can be built either using coding from scratch using PHP/JS/Java etc or using CMS like WordPress/Moodle or using ready to use e-learning portals like Teachable, Thinkific, Learnworlds etc. The first allows maximum customisation and requires maximum hard work while the other two subsequently reduce your efforts to build site.
We generally recommend WordPress based sites as they offer a mid way between efforts and customisability options. Our integrations with WordPress are also quite good and we have written few WordPress related blogs on explaining how to use LMS themes + plugins to build good course WordPress sites. One more detailed video blog will be released soon to make it very clear.
