Getting Started as a Content Provider in OpenSesame

Getting Started as a Content Provider in OpenSesame

You’re an elearning author. You’re ready to leverage your expertise by selling your elearning courses in the OpenSesame marketplace. You want to know where to begin. We’re here to advise you.

1. What, this old thing? Yes, that old thing. Did you create a basic sales skills course five years ago? Aren’t sales skills still useful? Yes. Update Basic Sales Skills and the rest of your existing library of courses with fresh graphics and the latest developments in the field. Advertise your new course on, say, Using Social Networking to Generate Sales in the OpenSesame marketplace and generate new income from your history of excellent courses.

2. Target a broad audience. While there is certainly a market for “Advanced PHP Programming” or “Electrical Circuits for Beginners”, if you are creating brand new materials, you can reach new customers in OpenSesame without targeting specific professions. For example, it is in every organization’s interest to promote safe behavior. Create a fun and effective workplace safety course that applies to everyone. Yes, that also means you. Please don’t pick up that whole box of printer paper by yourself. Your workplace safety course will reach a broad range of potential learners at OpenSesame, from electrical system distributors and manufacturers to law firms and universities.

3. Leverage the work you have already done. You have made a hundred food safety & compliance courses for a hundred different companies. Your team knows the content cold. Use your expertise and unique perspective to create a food safety training program that applies to anyone, anywhere, and create a new revenue opportunity in the OpenSesame marketplace.

4. Meet the demand of the marketplace. We have heard from our customers that they are seeking engaging and informative courses on the following subjects:

  • Developing effective elearning programs and measuring their success
  • Writing for a business audience

  • Providing outstanding customer service
