More and more people and businesses are monetizing their content and websites by offering online courses. I think it’s a really smart idea. LearnDash is one of the leading LMS (Learning Management System) plugins available today, certainly the most complete. By itself, you can sell courses online. However, that’s a little limiting in terms of how you accept payments and offers you can provide. LearnDash, however, has a ton of payment integrations such as Exchange, WooCommerce, and my favorite, Easy Digital Downloads. Today, I’m going to talk about how to set up a basic course using LearnDash + EDD. Setting up a course and selling it using LearnDash and EDD is a relatively low investment. Really, the cost of LearnDash ($99 – single site) and EDD + a payment gateway (only necessary if you don’t use Paypal and want to process credit cards) will run you less than $200.00, which might seem like a lot, but it’s not. $99, plus the price of a payment gateway for Easy Digital Downloads ($49 – single site) is still less than $150.00. Not too shabby, considering what you get with that. Just so you know… Setting up a course, even a simple one takes a lot of work and a lot of planning. Definitely
