When creating elearning courses, sometimes it feels like you’re reinventing the wheel. “Certainly,” you say to yourself, “I am not the only one who has ever needed to create a sexual harassment prevention course. There must be hundreds of great courses out there – why am I starting from scratch?”
You’re right. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. When it comes to widely applicable topics like business skills, compliance training and safety, there are thousands of elearning courses available for sale on OpenSesame, an online marketplace for buying and selling off-the-shelf elearning courses.
OpenSesame launched in late 2010, and in just the last year they’ve developed a catalog of more than 10,000 online training courses. Shopping from OpenSesame is like buying songs on iTunes: You can browse, preview, read reviews, make purchases and use courses instantly.
If you’re a corporate training manager shopping for elearning courses, you can OpenSesame to shop from a library of thousands of courses, compare different options and purchase only the courses you need, in the quantity you need.
If you are an elearning developer and you create excellent elearning courses (perhaps with images from eLearningStock!), you can sell them to new customers on OpenSesame. It’s like an eBay built specifically for elearning courses: You set the price and discount levels and upload your courses for sale in the marketplace. OpenSesame delivers the course to customers, collects payment and takes care of technical support.
We believe www.OpenSesame.com is a long overdue way to simplify the elearning marketplace – by creating a place where developers and customers meet to buy and sell elearning courses instantly.
