I haven't tried this yet, but it looks like a nice free platform. The premium accounts look very reasonably priced too, so could be a good way to start producing your own courses and generating aan income.

What Is Competency-Based Learning?

What Is Competency-Based Learning? | Geoff Strauss | Scoop.it

"Competency-based learning is an approach to education that focuses on the student’s demonstration of desired learning outcomes as central to the learning process. It is concerned chiefly with a student’s progression through curriculum at their own pace, depth, etc. As competencies are proven, students continue to progress."

10 Free Tools for Building Blended & Online Learning

10 Free Tools for Building Blended & Online Learning | Geoff Strauss | Scoop.it
Remember though that finding the right tool is important, but how you structure and design interaction with the content is way more important. Taking classroom activities and materials and placing them on a web-based platform and expecting them to work is sure way to disappoint students. You need to think carefully about how the student will engage with the materials and how the materials relate to each other to ensure that your materials don’t just test the students’ knowledge and abilities, but that they guide and enable the student to hypothesise and make and confirm deductions in order to encourage deeper levels of autonomous learning.
