If Shika has a front-end course creation capability for my site members to prepare whole courses themselves and work with a flexible commission system, this will allow me to collect either a percentage of the sales or a set fee. Only with this can I capture revenue from which I can purchase continuing Techjoomla subscriptions.
I'm hoping you will reply with news that you will support this in Shika. If you do so, then this feature will allow me to create a fully-fledged learning platform like Udemy or Guru.
I've chosen Techjoomla for many needs, but with regard to an LMS solution, my plans are to make money and the business plan is to offer LMS to site members and monetize the activity.
My comment to your recent Shika blog post:
It's great to see consistent forward progress. But, it's been an enduring wait for multi-user, allowing Joomla site community members who are subject matter entrepreneurs and smaller education and training businesses to sell online courses and site owners to generate revenue from those activites.
While it's commendable to add Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) where did this requirement come from? I could not find it discussed in the early adopter forum. In contrast, there has been voiced the need for front end multi-user --- close to and possibly over a year ago in comments to blog posts. Can't help but feel this is an added requirement not from your customers but rather an internally generated feature whose immediate value to your current and near-term customers will not be realized anytime as soon as multi-user commission/flat fee (as Quick2Cart) could be.
Guru provides this today and Shika should be there too (Shika is beyond in many other areas, why not on this important feature?).
Listen, the idea is to help us make money to buy more Techjoomla products. If Shika has a front-end course creation capability with a flexible commission system as you already know how to do, this will allow your Shika customers to collect either a percentage of the sales or a set fee for site members to use. Only with this can your customers capture revenue from which they can purchase continuing Techjoomla subscriptions.
I'm hoping you will reply with news that you will support this in Shika now soon, not post v1.
Who else besides Guru supports this? Here's a short list:
