Hey guys, I'm the founder of Fedora and I'm happy to answer any questions you may have. We were teaching on Udemy but found it really hard to scale a business without having ownership of our users so we built Fedora. Version 0.1 was literally video hosting, a Stripe integration and a legit Mixpanel integration. But over the next few months, the product evolved quite considerably. First came progress tracking to make it more like an actual school. We then innovated a bunch of marketing and payments as we added the ability to create course bundles, charge users subscriptions on either a single course or the entire site, an in-built affiliate program, native integrations with more third party tools and a pretty sweet coupon code engine. Right now, we have about 100 schools using it in private beta and today is the first day that absolutely anyone can sign up to create a school.
Shameless plug - but we are hiring. If you think this is something you'd like to work on - get at me @ankurnagpal
I thought Fedora is copyrighted by Redhat. Sorry, but Fedora is an OS, nothing else. Consider changing the name :)
Nice work guys and congrats on launching! Just wanted to correct a few things regarding the comparison with Pathwright. We do allow free courses without the registration fee (or a significantly reduced fee) to help our schools build out their audience but this is done on a case by case basis. Pathwright offers most all of the e-commerce features as Fedora although some of them require a bit more manual setup in our system. The primary difference between Pathwright and Fedora in my opinion is that Pathwright provides a lot richer learning experience for students and teachers. We support a myriad of content types (quizzes/tests, tasks, project submissions, audio, events etc...) as well as basic grading, feedback and scheduling. For selling simple video courses though (which is a big market), Fedora is looking good.
Congrats on reaching 100 schools, @ankurnagpal. Great start! How does it compare to Pathwright (posted by @charlieirish) and Kunerango (posted by @OsmnShkh)?
