Shopify is one of the best platforms that allow you to start your business in seconds. In this article we want to cover the situation when we need to create a platform for selling courses / lessons / webinars / tutorials online.
With new Courses app for Shopify you can turn your products into online courses. This app helps to break down products by sections, where every section will contain as many lessons as you like.
Customers can track their progress and mark lessons as completed to be able to continue where they stopped last time (app remembers this automatically).
You’ll be able to create sections and courses in app’s admin panel. To easily create a lesson you can copy-paste courses contents from Word, Google Docs, or simply by copying them from other web pages – Courses app will keep formatting and include pictures.
You can also preview the course and set expected completion time that will be shown on My Courses page for your customers:
When someone purchases a course, they will be able to access My Courses page in their account. It will list all purchased courses and allow to filter them by tags. It’s possible to view courses contents online or download course files. Store admin can upload files to a preferred storage (Google Drive / Amazon S3 / other storage) and link the course with files stored in cloud.
The app includes instructions that help to guide customers on how they can access course materials and optimize store navigation for Courses.
Feel free to check our demo and install courses app – it has a free tier.
