Some provide an existing marketplace on which to sell online courses or help businesses market their content. Online Learning Platforms provide tools to create customizable study materials and streamline tasks, freeing up educators to focus on providing engaging, and high-quality lessons. Some platforms allow instructors to integrate adaptive learning technology into their courses, offering a consistent experience across products.
