One of the fastest growing trends in education currently (and especially as a result of the Coronavirus pandemic) is online learning. Anything from a lecture series on neuroscience to a short training course on using fire extinguishers can be delivered online, in a format that allows learners to access the material in their own time and at their own pace.
Picture Engine has developed a great deal of expertise in setting up online learning courses. We can help you convert conventional face-to-face training courses into fully online courses, which of course has a number of advantages:
- No limit on the number of students
- Training can take place at any time, anywhere
- Get paid upfront – no chasing invoices
- More time for you to develop new courses

Learning Management Systems (LMS)
Online learning is almost always managed using software called a Learning Management System (LMS). Anyone who has been at or taught at school, college or university in recent years will have used one of the major ones – systems like Moodle, UniLearn and Brightspace are common in big institutions. Luckily there are much smaller and more manageable options, including plug-ins for WordPress. At Picture Engine our favourite is currently WPCourseware, which has all sorts of useful options including multi-choice quizzes that can be marked automatically and even a downloadable certificate.
