    Recommedations for online paid classes
    Whenever I think of any online topic I always thing ABW is the best and first place to ask it... no matter the topic.

    I am looking for recommendations as to how I should set up my site for online paid webinars. All of my sites run wordpress and there are a ton of wordpress
    membership type plugins - that is not what I am looking at/for (but I'll need help there too). But I need to be able to records several webinars and then make sure they are only available to people that have paid for them - either one time or as a recurring membership. I'd prefer to NOT host the videos on my own servers.

    Thanks my ABW friends,
    Patrick

    I would check with Vimeo about the video hosting. You can set videos to private and embed them in your site and allow that to be the only place they are embedded. Then only give access via whatever you use to give access to your site.

    Thanks loxly. I've been doing some reading and also considering using Amazon S3 for video hosting and then Digital Access Pass/Member to protect it. I think they mask the real URL and every member gets a special link to watch the video.

    Have you ever used any membership plugins?

    Here is the feature I think you are talking about in Vimeo:

    Domain level privacy
    Choose exactly where your videos can be embedded on the web. There are no limits to the number of websites you can choose and you'll always have complete control of your video outside of Vimeo. You even have the option to completely hide your video on Vimeo.com so it will only show up on the sites you want it to, and nowhere else.

    I would think that setting up an online course would be similar to setting up a webinar: especially if you'd like to make them available to people on a recurring basis [as an option]. This list looked really good:
