Where to sell my courses?

Hello everyone!

I recently wrote a book and did a Ted Talk on a very specific topic, and have begun creating online courses to help educate my small niche (foster and adoptive parents dealing with attachment disorders in kids). I have three modules done and plan on three more to sell either individually or as a package. I also have a full-time job and do consulting on the side in a whole different industry, so I don't really want to maintain my own LMS. Do you know of a place where I can upload and sell Storyline courses and pay a percentage to the LMS owner? Ideally, I'd love to direct my clients from my website to the place they can purchase courses. At this point, I have no idea what kind of response I will get, so the cost to purchase and set up an LMS may not be worthwhile.

Are there places out there that do this? Has anyone tried? Successes? Things to look for?

Would love any advice from the heroes out there...

What kind of metrics or reporting are you going to require? I ask because you may not need an lms at all. If you just want to sell the course, I can teach you how to create a time-bound license that will expire, cutting off access. Using a method like this, you can post the course(s) on AWS. 

You could still do this and get data back using xAPI (but I'm not an expert here). I would loop in someone like Devlin Peck or Megan Torrance for some guidance if you choose the xAPI route.

Lastly, for a reasonably priced cloud based solution, you might look at Rise 360 or SCORM cloud.

I haven't reviewed Teachable for a while but I don't think it supports Storyline or Captivate files. Thinkific is a similar service/solution and Thinkific does allow you to import Captivate and Storyline files into the platform.

Glad to hear to know that. I was just shooting from the hip. I will check
out Thinkific. I need some advice. I am a 25 year HR and Training
professional about to graduate with my MS in Instructional design. I must
admit, i am very good at PowerPoint and developing courses. I see the
market has so many options for elearninng and many institutions are fond of
one type. Which is the best to master...(?) I have used a few via trial
versions, they all are similar in one way or another I am looking to work
remotely as IDer. Any advice (?)
