Release 1.5.5

What's New! 🎊

AR-5333 | Content Licencing

Now, you can offer a subscription-style service to sell various courses. This way, you can sell courses under a license. You have the flexibility to design various levels of content licenses, each offering a unique range of content. You can choose the license duration, whether for 30 days, six months, one year, or even indefinitely. Upon expiration, users lose access to the courses but retain their progress. Renewing the license allows users to continue from where they left off.

Many ways to sell content

Content licencing works with existing payments, allowing you to sell in multiple ways. By using payments on courses and content licences, you can give learners the flexibility to choose between buying individual courses or buying a licence to gain access to a suite of courses!


The power of Cohort Managers to manage licensing

Give external businesses, teams, HR managers, or partners the ability to manage Content Licensing for their users. Cohort Managers can purchase licenses in bulk and assign them to their members. This is beneficial because it removes barriers for learners to access the content that's important to them without worry. 

AR-5300 | Group Purchasing

New bulk purchasing option called Group Purchasing. With Group Purchasing, Supervisors and Cohort Managers can now make purchases on behalf of their users.

This new feature streamlines the purchasing process by allowing managers to procure content licenses for their team members, providing a centralised and efficient way to manage purchases for a group of users. 

Changes ✨

AR-5391 | Cohort - Ability for Learners to request to join a cohort

Users can now request to join a cohort. When a learner requests to join, the request will be sent to the cohort managers of the group.

To enable this feature, you need to turn on the setting that allows users to request to join the cohort.
