How to sell your Moodle courses with WordPress frontend using Edwiser Bridge plugin #moodle

Have you ever thought of selling your Moodle courses from your WordPress frontend? Many organizations use WordPress as their frontend website CMS which is clear from the fact a total of 27% websites are powered by WordPress. Moodle being the most popular and most powerful open source LMS when used along with WordPress as a frontend can be very effective combination.

Recently, one of my friend asked me how he can sell his Moodle courses through his WordPress frontend website? He was already running a well settled front end WordPress website with WooCommerce integration. He used to manually enroll the students once the payment is confirmed one by one in the corresponding courses.  It is really a tedious process for himself and the students also as:

  • His students couldn’t get immediate access to the course.
  • He had to manually enroll every student.
  • Because he had to manually enroll every student, it was prone to errors

I suggested him about the Edwiser bridge plugin which can be used to seamlessly integrate Moodle site with WordPress site along with the WooCommerce Integration and Single Sign on extensions. Edwiser Bridge is an all-in-one e-commerce, marketing, social networking platform for Moodle.
