go! Take Better Photos
go! Take Better Photos is an online photography course run by popular South African lifestyle magazine, go!
Photography is a fundamental pillar of this monthly publication covering a wide range of travel and outdoor lifestyle topics. With this in mind, the go! team created an online training course that enables their audience to master the basic principles of digital photography while growing in confidence as a photographer.
They describe this easy-to-follow program – Take Better Photos – as “perfect for amateur photographers or beginners still shooting on auto.”
Take Better Photos consists of six modules, with connected lessons relating to each module. Students who enroll can start at any time and from anywhere. After finishing each lesson, they must complete an accompanying quiz to progress. Once they pass the course, students receive a certificate of completion and are encouraged to submit their work for publication consideration.
“Thanks to the power of the Storefront theme and the WooCommerce and Sensei plugins, we were able to build this fully-fledged learning platform, allowing the client to focus on creating, managing, and uploading their content.”
South African WooExperts, LightSpeed, came on board to build the site for this online course – a key step to bring everything together and make Take Better Photos a reality.
“We used the Sensei learner management solution combined with WooCommerce, and built the site with the Storefront theme,” explains Ashley Shaw, Lightspeed’s founder and CEO.
“Storefront was compatible with Sensei LMS and WooCommerce out the box, so we focused on showcasing the imagery on the homepage and creating a simple solution for the client so that they could manage and upload their own content.”
With only being one product sold – the course – Lightspeed chose to bypass the cart phase of checkout. Instead, the product is automatically added to the cart when customers sign up, and they are directed straight to checkout for payment.
