The Cost to Build an Online School Will Stop You in Your Tracks: Discover How LifterLMS is Disrupting the Business of Education
Azusa, California: Last week LifterLMS, a learning management system software company, announced the release of LifterLMS 3.0. After releasing the software 2 years ago, the company has been on a mission to disrupt and democratize education in the digital classroom. They shocked the market when they made their core software free earlier this year. According to WordPress, the free software has been downloaded 25,214 times. And now with LifterLMS 3.0 they reduced the barrier to entry further by lowering the price of their premium add-ons by packaging them all in one bundle for over 60% off retail.
In 2013 Matt Mullenweg, WordPress founding developer and LinkedIn cofounder Reid Hoffman spoke at the LinkedIn Speaker Series. Matt said “our original mission was to democratize publishing. I’ve started to add two words to that … to democratize publishing and development.”
Chris Badgett, LifterLMS cofounder was listening and crafted the LifterLMS project on top of that vision by building LifterLMS on WordPress with a mission to democratize learning in the digital classroom.
To gain this momentous progress LifterLMS planned and executed the following tactics:
- Give away as much as sustainably possible in the free open source LifterLMS software
- Crowdsourcing the direction of the product from the community of education entrepreneurs that use it
- Frequent software upgrade releases that improve the user experience in terms of human connectivity online, learner autonomy, and the ability to learn quickly.
