Envisiontel’s cutting edge shopping cart solution, LMScheckout, provides a new opportunity for Bridge by Instructure customers to create and manage a multi-tenant e-commerce solution to sell, enroll, and deploy training content to the extended enterprise.

Like many LMS providers, the challenge of providing an e-commerce solution within Bridge is that it was designed to cater to a known, internal user: someone who has their training enrollments assigned to them from the system, often based on their role within the organization. At its most basic level, an e-commerce solution must be able to provide access to an unknown, external user: a person who needs to choose their own training.

“We built LMScheckout with a mission in mind,” commented Jonathan Turkle, vice president of Envisiontel. “Our mission is to provide external users with a robust storefront experience, one that gives individuals and stores owners all the unique transaction and enrollment tools they need, so users can design their own learning path in an environment that both inspires and motivates them.”

With the integration of LMScheckout, Bridge customers can:

  • Import their entire Bridge training catalogue into a highly customizable storefront platform.
  • Customize and group catalogs into offerings based on multiple criteria.
  • Pass student data back and forth between the Bridge LMS and the storefront.
  • Purchase and access courses or review course progress without ever having to leave the storefront environment.
  • Manage user notifications, credit card transactions, invoicing, purchase orders, and discounting through LMScheckout.
  • Leverage the Salesforce integration in LMScheckout, where students can be tracked as contacts and sales can be tracked as opportunities.

“Pairing Instructure with LMScheckout allows our customers to reach an extended audience and optimize the training provided through Bridge,” said Melissa Loble, vice president of partnerships and professional services at Instructure. “With LMScheckout’s background and focus on education, their solution is tailored to cater to our customer’s training needs on an individualized basis.”

For end-users, LMScheckout provides a rich user experience, where visitors can easily navigate a blend of course offerings based on their preferences, browse through course recommendations, customer reviews and ratings. Sharing through course embed codes and social media hooks are just a few way users can promote course options to friends and associates.

For the store owner, the LMScheckout e-commerce platform is an opportunity to market and promote training content across multiple distribution outlets. Store owners can create and manage an almost unlimited number of uniquely branded child stores, where each store can be individually provisioned from the same Bridge instance. This multi-tenant solution means store owners can create any number individual child stores to market and sell training through training partners or by targeting individual market verticals.

The result of all these offerings is a unique opportunity for Bridge admins to extend their reach with a fully integrated solution to sell and market their Bridge online courses to a brand new audience in the online marketplace.
