I've built my courses using SL3 now what?

Hi all,

I'm intending to have a website where learners can sign up and learn a topic. Think coursera.

Do you think SL3 is a good option to use to design? And what is the best way for me to make courses accessible to learners?

Has anyone used moodle with SL3 or Sakai 11? Or are there any LMS that is suitable for a small startup site that you can recommend.

Thanks in advance for all my questions!

Probably find a web service provider that provides easy to set up options like Joomla! or Drupal, OR go with an option like WordPress, Wix, etc to build the site, then use something like moodle for course tracking.

I can't remember, but I think there may be LMS plugins for Joomla and maybe even Drupal, but if there are I can't speak to the viability of them.

Hey there Ivy.  We've got some great resources to help when considering the right learning management system.

Here's an older discussion about publishing for Sakai.  You could post a comment, or even reach out to users directly from their profile. 

I hope you get some good input from the community!

Ivy, I'm in the same boat as you. Once the course is built, sure, you can host it on Amazon S3 and link in on a website, but even with a website's member-access function, all we're doing is restricting access to who can get to the link. Then, once they have the S3 link, they can easily share it with others, so if you're looking at hosting courses with revenue-ties, that option falls flat. 

I'm just starting the treasure hunt, but this Moodle page has some info to start digging.
