Is there any way of preventing learners accessing course material until the start date of a session/event?
We are are about to launch ILT on our Docebo instance (we have been using eLearning for about 4 years). One of the great benefits for us s that we can load course material in course shell and that will save us hours of admin time. In our case we only sell training (no internal use case) to our external customers. we have over 500 different ILT/vILT courses
I am sure that, like many of you, the initial set of students to be enrolled on a course do not turn out to be the final students that actually attend the session/event. This leaves us with a problem. We want to add learners as early as possible in order to use the automated notifications etc.(again reducing admin) however those students who are initially enrolled can access and download the course material as soon as they are enrolled. Given that on average 25%+ turn out to be not the final students we potentially lose 25%+ of our revenue.
We cannot use any pre payment or ecommerce apps and so we are having to weigh up the lost revenue against the admin savings
I see it is possible to restrict access to material AFTER a session or restrict access to a number of days but it would make sense to me to be able to only allow access say for a few hours BEFORE the session till a defined period after the session,
