In this day and age, you can simply and easily go ahead and google a wide variety of different things in order to have a better understanding of what they are. But, knowing a handful of random facts cannot be that useful in the real world. What you want is to gain knowledge, and how do you gain knowledge? Well, by taking classes and courses of course!
The internet is home to God knows how many courses. And a lot of them are cheap or free in some instances. Courses are a great way of gaining a new skill or just a tool that helps you broaden your knowledge in a certain field. So it should come as no surprise that a lot of people are taking these kinds of courses on a daily basis.
People who make these courses accumulate a nice bit of money on a monthly basis just from creating a couple of videos. It is, let’s say, easy to create a video course because all you need to do is just film a couple of videos and separate them into chapters. And voila, you have yourself a course ready to go!
The issue arises when you want to integrate these kinds of courses into your site and make them behave and work as a normal course would.
In order to create a fully functional course, you will be needing a so-called, “learning management system” (LMS in short). An LSM is a type of plugin that gives you certain features and tools (depending on which plugin you go for) that allow you to put your courses on your site.

It is easy to set up and configure how you want the courses to behave. You can create a schedule when you want your courses to be posted (this feature is called “Drip-Feed Content”). This is quite handy if you are using it to upload courses for students that are attending a university.
And yes, you can also set a price at which you are going to be selling your courses. Just decide on a price, which pricing model you want to use, and click publish. It is that easy. But you can also make the courses free or available to members only.
Besides that, you can reward your users by giving them simple rewards or something more. You can award them with a badge, or you can give them a certificate when they finish listening and passing a certain number of courses. You can also award them with points for which you decide what they are going to be used for.
The pricing is actually not that bad, considering how great this plugin is. You can get the basic
