We are looking into a platform for delivering online training for our software package. We want to make it easy for members of our user community to find and buy the courses, but we also need to ensure that only our established clients can get to our stuff! We don't want our competitors to be able to get the material.
Is there a way to approve or validate users before they're allowed to buy our courses? How would you recommend managing this process?
One way to do this is to set your courses as private. In this way, students will have to contact you if they want to have access to the courses. For your existing members you can manually create their accounts and enroll them in the courses so that they can get access right away.
Hope this helps!
