For online course creators, one of the best ways to market your business and scale your audience is to provide unique value adds that attract new students and keep current students engaged.
This integration gives online course creators the power to automatically add students from LifterLMS into a Private Podcast hosted on WordPress – allowing you to share audio or podcast content as a part of your online course in a way that’s only available to current students.
How Podcasts Fit Into Online Learning and Courses
Podcasts are unique in that they provide a way to access information that is mobile, on-demand, and easy to access. Perfect for those of us who like to consume content on the go.
While the quizzes, courses, and video resources that make up your online learning website will always be a vital aspect, offering students a way to access relevant information in a way that doesn’t require them to look at a screen can add a huge amount of value and convince them to get started.
For your most engaged students that want all of the content available, offering a podcast as a part of your learning website can be a great way to share new information; enabling you to continue to grow and foster your learning community.
Whether your podcast is an extension of your online course or offers totally new insights and lessons, using Seriously Simple Podcasting with LifterLMS you can automatically grant or remove access to podcast content through one easy-to-use integration.
