64 platforms to share/sell your expertise online + 7 wordpress plugins that could do the same

Online learning is hott. I’ve built up a listing of the various options. There are enough choices to confuse anyone. I thought it might be helpful to share what I’ve collected so far.

This could be you: A HR/L&D pro trying to make some of your courses more accessible to staff; a solo business owner looking for a way to share your expertise online {and possibly profit from it}. Udemy is not the only option.

It will be helpful to identify the type of platform you want before you dive in. There are three basic types:

Fixed Price Subscription – you pay a fee, they give you space and bandwidth based on the price you pay. Good for those with courses that are not memory heavy (text or mp3 only)

Pay per user – you pay as participants are actively registered or using your courseware. Good for companies that know how many people will use. Also good for coaches and consultants that register groups in batches.

Give a cut – no upfront costs, but you pay a % based on your sales. Good for the bootstrapped that wants to get something going without initial overhead.

What do I prefer? I prefer to bootstrap with gumroad or setup a self-hosted wordpress site. It will take a separate post for me to explain how to do each.

In the mean time, here is a list for your perusal {no links to keep things even}. Add a comment if you have used one in the past or want to add something.
