Payment SystemIn order to run an online school, you need to have a system for taking payments online.This can be done using a wide range of third-part applications that can communicate with your LMS using an API. Which system you choose will depend to some extent on your physical location.Some common payment systems are:https://stripe.com/gbhttps://www.paypal.com/uk/webapps/mpp/merchanthttps://www.ipayimpact.co.uk/IPI
Self Access CourseThis is the course content that your students will study independently in their own time. You can structure the courses so that students have to study at specific times and include a range of learning objects and interaction types in the courses. You can also add video content and forum type activities where students can communicate with each other asynchronously.The courses are usually created in the LMS and the course content can be created using a range of authoring tools.
The Virtual ClassroomThis is where students from all over the world can meet together to have a live (synchronous) lesson with a teacher. These can be group classes or one-to-one.These applications can be used as virtual classrooms:https://iteach.world/https://webroom.net/https://appear.in/https://bigbluebutton.org/https://zoom.us/
Course Content CreationIn order to create interactive self access courses and materials for students, we need to have some form of authoring tool.In some cases the LMS will have its own authoring suite. Many of the authoring suites that come with the LMS are very poor, but you can plug in a third party application to enable the creation of more interesting interaction types.You can use https://h5p.org/ as an authoring tool and plug it in to most common LMS such as, Moodle, Canvas, Drupal, Wordpress, etc.
Learning Management System -LMSThis is the heart of the technology that supports the building of courses and course structures and enables the tracking of students learning. In many cases, the LMS also includes a booking system so that students can schedule lessons and it controls who can access and teach courses as well as who can author courses.The LMS will also enable you to build the store front for your virtual school.Examples of LMS are:https://moodle.com/https://iteach.world/https://www.instructure.com/canvas/en-gbhttps://www.schoology.com/https://www.blackboard.com/index.html
OnboardingThis is the process of training your students how to use and access the course materials and virtual classroom.You can create video or graphic materials to help students understand this process.You can create video tutorials using: https://screencast-o-matic.com/screen-recorder
Lesson ContentIn order to teach and learn efficiently in the virtual classroom, we need to have some learning materials and content that both we and the students can see during the lesson (like a virtual course book)We can create these materials using: https://genial.ly/Or we can use PowerPoint or some other presentation software.
CustomersThese are the people who pay for your courses.
Booking EngineIn order to enable students to schedule live lessons and for teachers to show when they are available, you will need some form of booking system. The booking system is often built into the LMS, but many of these have limitations.These are a few systems you can use to create an independent booking system:https://calendly.com/https://calendar.google.com/calendar
