I start getting some emails about how the course portal is built and what it consists of. For those of you who do not know the course portal, it is Årstaskolan's internal channel for professional development in particular digitalisation, but since it lives on the Internet, it is obviously free and open for everyone to participate in.
Of course, this is no secrets, so here I will briefly describe how it is built.
Platform / Software
The course portal runs with the WordPress software on its own servers.
Theme / Plugins
WPLMS - which you will find on ThemeForest - for $32 (Nov 2017).
The theme includes all the plugins needed to run this LMS. I have been using it for about 4 years and it is a bestseller with active developers. Just released APIs and more so you can easily run the whole thing as an app (iOS / Android).
If you want to know more about what to do with this theme/plugins, I recommend that you read the documentation on the link above. Integration with other services is of course available, such as WooCommerce, BuddyPress etc.
The films that I create, I put on Vimeo (to avoid advertising) but also on Youtube for distribution. Otherwise, creating content is not more complicated (okay, maybe a little) than publishing any content in WordPress.
If you have more specific questions, just ask them as comments and I will answer as best as possible.
