E-Commerce for Learning Management

With the New Year upon us, it's time to follow through on those annual resolutions. For many EasyCampus owners, that wish involves the creation of shiny new courses and cost-effective ways to profit from online learning.

Educadium's EasyCampus Virtual School Builder LMS platform includes a built-in way to sell courses. It's called CampusPay, and there is no charge to set up the service.

Once enabled by our Support team, your courses can be offered for any price you choose. Your learners will be directed to PayPal, where they can pay by credit card or with their PayPal account. Once payment is verified, they are automatically brought back to your EasyCampus and enrolled in their chosen course.

Once a month, our EasyCampus owners are paid for all of their course transactions, less a 5% transaction fee that covers all fees, accounting, and customer support. It's a no-muss, no-fuss way of handling e-commerce.

But we know that some organizations want to manage their own payments, with the tuition monies going directly into their PayPal account.

Credit Card

That's why we've created a new option called the EasyCampus Custom Tuition Payment Add-On.

The Custom Tuition Payment tool lets you charge tuition for your courses and receive payments instantly from students via credit cards or PayPal. You just need an email address that is linked to your PayPal account, which must be in good standing.

For a one-time fee of $295, you can offer an unlimited number of tuition-based courses on your EasyCampus. Pricing includes installation and testing. Compare this with the standard EasyCampus CampusPay system and decide which solution meets your needs for the New Year.

Learn Something New

It's been several months in development, but we're thrilled to announce the launch of our EasyCampus Learn site.

What is EasyCampus Learn?

It's a new online school and community for our EasyCampus users and the general public. With its free classes, forums, and support for course creators, we think it will offer valuable instruction about online course development and learning management administration.

 EasyCampus Learn

Educadium already offers some terrific support materials for our EasyCampus Virtual School Builder platform. But EasyCampus Learn goes a step further. By registering (at no charge), EasyCampus administrators and users get:

  • Free and advanced self-paced courses
  • Learning management tips
  • Online course design assistance
  • EasyCampus tutorials
  • Community forum
  • Self-help materials

EasyCampus owners will be interested in the new User Forum on EasyCampusLearn.com. You can share thoughts with Educadium and others in our learning community.

There are also free and paid interactive self-paced courses like “Add Multimedia Content."  They were designed by our Professional Services team. These courses make it fun and inviting to learn about EasyCampus features. Expect additional courseware for online educators to be added in 2011.

We hope you take a look around--and come back on a regular basis.

Online Training Goes to the Dogs

Our EasyCampus clients are doing remarkable things with online training and education.

Take Doggone Crazy!, a Canadian company dedicated to dog-bite prevention and training. The school's Basic Dog Body Language class describes many dog body language signs that help us understand what dogs might be feeling.

"By learning to speak dog, we can take steps to reduce anxiety that we may be inadvertently causing our pets,” says Toronto-based course creator Joan Orr, a scientist and internationally recognized expert in clicker training.

 Doggone Crazy

It's pretty interesting stuff for a self-paced training course--and only $30. Read more about this innovative online training program.

You don't have to bark like a dog to develop a great online school. Do you have an online course you want to develop? We want to hear about it. More than likely, our EasyCampus Virtual School Builder platform will help you bring your curriculum or training materials to life in a safe and secure setting. 

EasyCampus is free for up to 25 users, and more customizable paid packages start at just $39/month for up to 500 registered users.

Managing Your Course Certificates

Online learners like certificates.

More than a grade, certificates provide a visual and downloadable confirmation of success after completing a virtual class. For administrators and course creators, they can be linked to quizzes and other assessments, offering another way to track compliance.

We're happy to announce a new tool for EasyCampus owners. It's an Add-On called the Certificate Viewer and provides administrators and students with convenient on-screen access to all certificate data across an entire EasyCampus.

 EasyCampus Certificate Viewer

When installed, the Certificate Viewer is placed on your landing page and can be inserted as an HTML block anywhere on your EasyCampus. Learners view only their own certificates. Administrators can also restrict user access altogether.

You can purchase this useful Add-On for $495 by visiting Educadium's online store. Every EasyCampus Add-On comes with installation, training materials, and a 90-day limited warranty. So take a look at the Certificate Viewer and the many other EasyCampus Add-Ons that can super-charge your learning management system.

At Educadium, we're always trying to make our EasyCampus Virtual School Builder platform more powerful and convenient.

Recently, we added a handy Learner Progress Bar tool to our EasyCampus Add-Ons store. When installed on your EasyCampus, the colorful Progress Bar is a visual way for your learners to monitor their success within an EasyCampus course. Course creators can let students track:

  • Assignment submissions
  • Forum postings
  • Quiz attempts
  • Choice answers
  • Feedback survey responses
  • Various pages viewed

 Learer Progress Bar Menu

Your students will benefit from an intuitive activity-checkmark system within your courses. Due dates for activities are also displayed.

EasyCampus Learner Progress Bar

The Learner Progress Bar costs $495 to install, and you can make it visible on all of your courses. As with every EasyCampus Add-On, it includes a training session and our full support, including a 90-day limited warranty. It's worth checking out!
