Alexandria, VA —September 17, 2019 — iSpring Solutions Inc., a global leader in eLearning software and services, introduces Flora LMS, the new platform for selling courses online. The platform provides business trainers, edupreneurs, and training companies with an end-to-end solution to host, market, and sell training content online.

Flora is an online training center that combines a convenient marketplace and intuitive learning environment. It is designed to help training companies, educators, and edupreneurs quickly launch a course marketplace with a catalog, shopping cart, user management, certificates, and statistics. Since it’s extremely easy to use, the platform saves users from deploying a separate website, setting up payment systems, and developing a reporting engine.

“A great part of our work is to help training companies and educators share their expertise worldwide and grow their online business. With Flora, they can easily turn their knowledge into measurable profit and provide their audience with a seamless learning experience. Spreading knowledge is an impactful mission, and we’re extremely proud to help our customers carry it out,” says Tonya Smolentseva, VP of Quality Assurance at iSpring.

Course marketplace. Users can quickly add courses to an online storefront, where each course has its own page with a description, course program, and reviews. Soon, it will also be possible to add demo previews so learners can check out a course before purchasing and decide if it fits their needs.

To help authors gain a wider audience, course pages are visible to search engines. It is possible to organize courses and files into learning paths with strict completion rules and due dates. You can also create coupons to provide clients with discounts and drive more sales. 

Extensive format support. Flora LMS allows users to upload multiple types of content, whatever format their expertise is represented in. The platform supports video (FLV, MP4), documents (PDF, DOC, XLS), presentations (PPT), courses and tests (SCORM), and dialog simulations and assessments made with iSpring authoring tools.

Certificates and rewards. Once a learner completes a course or a test, the platform automatically awards them with a certificate — a default one or a customized version. To drive learner engagement, course authors can also assign points and badges for course completion. 

Insightful reports. With e-commerce reports, it’s easy to monitor revenue data, identify the most profitable courses, and align other content so it shows the same performance. Plus, the platform generates statistics on learner progress that can be used to renew course content and increase profits. 

Intuitive learning portal. Course takers get a convenient user portal where they can see their courses and deadlines and keep track of their achievements and certificates.

Branding. It’s possible to set a custom domain name, add a logo, and align the platform color scheme with your corporate brand identity.

Flexible payment options. Course creators can accept payments through credit card or online payment systems: Stripe, PayPal, and Authorize.net. The platform supports 30 currencies, giving you the ability to sell courses internationally.

Pricing and Availability

Flora LMS is shipped as a subscription and puts no limits on the number of uploaded courses. The price depends only on the number of active users (who pay for training courses or view two or more free courses). The subscription plans start from 50 active users and are available on the website.

The platform has a full-featured 14-day trial: https://www.floralms.com/
