Improved Educator Search 🧐
Quick update for you! We've jazzed up our Educator Search feature on the Cademy Marketplace. 🎉
What's New? 🤔
1️⃣ More Visibility for Course Providers:
If a potential student searches for a course topic that isn't currently available on our Marketplace, we'll now suggest a list of course providers (like you!) who offer similar categories. This means more eyes on your courses and a chance for potential students to contact you directly. 💌
2️⃣ Search by Course Provider:
Customers can now search specifically for course providers in their area or field of interest. This makes it easier for them to find exactly what—or who—they're looking for. 🎯
3️⃣ Enhanced Filtering and Sorting:
We've fine-tuned the filtering and sorting options to make the search experience smoother and more intuitive. 🛠️
How Does It Work? 🛠️
The new Educator Search works similarly to our existing Course Search. When a potential student can't find a course they're interested in, we'll automatically suggest a list of course providers with similar categories linked to their profiles. This list will appear right on the Cademy Marketplace, giving you more opportunities to be discovered. 🌐
What Does This Mean for You? 🎯
Increased Exposure: Your profile will be more visible, even if you don't offer the exact course a student is searching for.
Direct Enquiries: Potential students can contact you directly, offering a chance for more personalised interactions. 💌
🎉 Show Online Courses on Location Search Result Pages 🔍
When students search for courses in specific cities, we've now added a feature that will also display online courses in a dedicated section called "Online Options". This means that even if a student is looking for courses in Edinburgh, for example, they'll also see your online courses as an alternative. This opens up a whole new avenue for your courses to be discovered and booked! 🌍
Why This Matters 🎯
Increased Visibility: Your online courses will now appear in more search results, increasing the chances of enrolment.
Convenience for Students: This feature makes it easier for students to consider online courses as a viable option, especially if they can't find what they're looking for in their local area.
More Opportunities: With your courses appearing in both location-specific and online searches, you're essentially doubling your exposure on our platform.
🌟 Enhanced On-Request Search Results on Cademy Marketplace! 🌟
We've been listening to your feedback and are thrilled to announce some nifty updates to our Marketplace search results, specifically for on-request courses. 🛠️
What's New? 🆕
1️⃣ Improved Visibility for On-Request Courses
Your on-request courses will now appear more prominently in search results when students filter for "delivery -> in-person" and by city. 🏙️
2️⃣ Multiple City Support
If your course is available in more than one city, it will appear in searches for any of those cities. Even better, the course card will display the city closest to the student's search query. For instance, if your course is available in both London and Birmingham, and someone searches for courses in Birmingham, the course card will show Birmingham as the location. 🗺️
3️⃣ UK-Wide & International Courses
If your course can be delivered UK-wide or internationally, it will appear when students filter for "delivery -> in-person" and by any city. These courses will have a label of "In-person, UK wide" on the course card. 🌍
4️⃣ Online Courses
Online on-request courses will now appear when students filter for "delivery ->online". 💻
5️⃣ Improved Sorting by Price
We've fine-tuned the sorting mechanism to ensure that on-request courses are sorted accurately by price, including those with a 'Prices on Enquiry' starting price property. 💷
How Does This Benefit You? 🎉
Increased Visibility: Your courses will be easier to find, which means more enrolments! 📈
Flexibility: The new features make it easier for students to find courses that fit their specific needs, be it location or delivery method. 📍
Better User Experience: These updates make the search process more intuitive and user-friendly for potential students. 🤗
💪 Enhanced Search & Simplified Filters on Cademy's Marketplace! 🔍
Good news! We've simplified the Delivery Filters on our Marketplace Search to make it easier for students to find your courses. 🎉
In-Person Filter: Now shows set-date, hybrid, and on-request courses at locations. 🏫
Online Filter: Includes set-date, on-request, hybrid, and on-demand courses. 💻
This should make course discovery more straightforward and help more students find you. 🌟
📣 Sell external on-demand courses on Cademy
We understand the effort it takes to create an on-demand course, and we don't want you to repeat the process on Cademy if it's already hosted elsewhere. That's why we've introduced the option to mark your course as "hosted externally."
Now, instead of recreating your course on Cademy, you can effortlessly advertise it on our marketplace and provide bespoke instructions to your customers about how and when they can access the course post-purchase.
It's all about making things easier for you and opening up more possibilities for learners to find your course right here on Cademy.
🎯 Select the best keyword for your listings
Creating a new listing just got more intuitive! Now, you can select the most suitable keyword for your course offering. Pick the right keyword that truly represents your offering, be it a course, event, one-to-one, webinar, or workshop.
Tailor your course to its best advantage with Cademy and maximise your reach!
🔄 Import your Listings from External Platforms
Our latest feature now allows you to import your course listings from platforms such as Eventbrite, Reed, and more! Simply with a click of a button, we streamline your setup process, letting you get started quicker and easier than ever before, saving both time and effort. Ready to simplify your workflow? Get started here!
🌟 Reviews for Courses and Course Providers
🚀 We are excited to announce the addition of reviews for courses and course providers on Cademy! This new feature will allow customers to provide feedback on their learning experiences, helping future learners make informed decisions and course providers to continuously improve their offerings.
Learn more about Reviews in our product docs.
📍🔍 Filter by Location and Adjustable Radius in Marketplace
✨ Discovering the perfect course just got easier with the addition of location filtering and an adjustable radius option in our Marketplace. Users can now narrow down their search by selecting a specific location and defining a search radius to find the most suitable courses nearby.
New Search Bar with Auto-Complete Suggestions
🔍✨ This update makes the process of finding and browsing courses that match your interests smoother and faster. Simply begin typing, and our auto-complete suggestions will help you navigate to the most suitable courses. Happy searching! 😃🎉
Link Previews For Cademy Search Results
We've enhanced the appearance of Cademy links when shared on platforms that generate link previews, such as social media. Now, when you share search results from Cademy, a more visually appealing and representative preview will be generated, making it easier for users to understand the content they're about to view.
Introducing Olly – Cademy's New Mascot!
Keep an eye out for Olly on our platform, guiding you through your adventures with a hoot and a smile. Let's make education even more enjoyable together with Olly! 🦉😄
Quizzes & Assessments
You can now create quizzes on your on-demand and blended courses. Simply edit an on-demand or blended course, and in the lesson editor, you will now see a "Quiz" block. Add a quiz to your lesson to assess your student's knowledge right within the Cademy course.
Learn more in our product docs.
Hide Marketplace Profile
You can hide your profile and courses from the Cademy marketplace by going into your Admin Dashboard, in the Profile page.
Making our profile private will also make sure that all your courses are unpublished from the Cademy marketplace. If your profile is private, any courses you publish, will only be published on your minisite and booking system (i.e. they will not be published on the marketplace).
Profile Email & Phone numbers
You can now add a general enquiries email and phone number on your account. The phone number will be shown on your profile page and the email will soon be used as the default recipient on all new enquiries coming from your profile page.
Course Categories & Tags
Improve the discoverability of your course in the Cademy marketplace with Tags & Categories. In the "Description" tab of any course, you will now see dropdowns to select a Primary Category, Additional Categories and Tags. There are over 2,000 categories and 5,000 system tags to pick from. You can also create and assign your own custom tags. Property categorising and tagging your course is the most important thing you can do to increase your visibility in the Cademy marketplace.
Adding a location to a course or date is now easier than ever. Instead of typing up the location on every single course, we will now save your addresses into a "Locations" library. When creating new courses or dates, you'll now simply have to pick a location from your library instead of typing it up from scratch.
New Marketplace Pricing
We have announced a new pricing policy for all sales via the Cademy marketplace, effective from March 15th 2023 forward. The new pricing will allow us to expand our marketing campaigns and drive more customers to the courses listed on our marketplace.
Sorting inbox by most recent messages
The admin inbox in Cademy is now sorting conversations by "most recent message". This means that as new messages come into older conversations they will bubble up to the very top of the list, making them much easier to find and respond to.
