Licencing authoring software by course views count
I need your help brainstorming a few ideas, if you don't mind.
As you well know, Articulate Presenter costs exactly the same amount of money whether you develop courses that are used for many years by thousands of people or if you develop courses that are used only a few times by a few hundred people in a small enterprise. This pricing model is used for all desktop authoring tools.
Now imagine that you paid for the tool depending on how many times the course is launched. Say, $0.01 for each launch. This way smaller and less popular courses would cost less, larger and more popular courses would cost more. Large corporations would pay more to use the tool (as they should), while amateur freelance developers would pay very affordable prices.
I imagine technical problems with this model. However, technicalities aside, what do you think of this? Are there any software companies that do this? I appreciate any feedback and ideas.
