Producing a course for customers (not employees) - hosting advice
This may be a convoluted question, but here goes:
I am working with a non-profit client and the course that we are producing is going to be sold to customers, not used within a company for employee training. I need to figure out a couple of things:
I am only contracted to build the elearning course. I am trying Articulate b/c of the ability to produce a CD version, as some of the customers are rural and may not have great internet access. However, I would like to phase in peer interaction outside of the articulate course like ning (or buddypress or elgg) and integrate webinars/synchronous learning as well. I'd like to have all the related course options in one place, have it private and keep costs down, since they are non profit. What do you think is the best route to go?
I have thought of Moodle, and may go that route, but wondered what other suggestions you might have.
I can also see them building more courses if this one is successful, so want the solution to be scalable.
I am also wondering if anyone can share their processes for providing drafts to clients if you are an independent freelancer.
Thanks for your input and any guidance you can provide.
