New Open Marketplace Offers E-learning Content

A brand-new open marketplace connects purchasers of e-learning content like corporate learning officers with an extensive library of courses provided by a wide range of content creators. Courses purchased through the OpenSesame marketplace automatically work on any learning management system (LMS).

Whether companies choose to commission custom courses or purchase off-the-shelf content, shopping for e-learning courses is costly and time-consuming. The OpenSesame marketplace dramatically simplifies this process by enabling companies to find, research and purchase off-the-shelf courses in a single place.

“We allow anyone to buy or sell e-learning courses without the headache of complicated pricing and implementation,” says OpenSesame co-founder and general manager Josh Blank. “This community allows content developers and business professionals to connect in a secure environment, with no strings attached.”

The founders developed the concept after many years in the LMS industry listening to customers discuss the hassles involved in obtaining quality content for their training programs.

The OpenSesame marketplace connects content developers with potential buyers of e-learning courses. Developers can sell previously built or newly created content to multiple buyers while maintaining security, control and centralized management of their intellectual property. The OpenSesame marketplace enables content developers to connect with new customers, no matter where the buyers are located or what LMS they use. Additionally, OpenSesame’s proprietary technology ensures that courses cannot be downloaded or re-sold without the developer’s permission.

Buyers can quickly browse courses on a variety of subjects, from workplace safety to specific product training. Pricing for each course is stated up-front and, in most cases, buyers can preview entire courses before making a purchase. Buyers can effectively create a complete curriculum by purchasing courses from multiple developers while managing everything from a central dashboard. Finally, buyers can distribute purchased courses to employees on any LMS.

OpenSesame will soon feature additional online community elements, including message boards, forums and product reviews.
