Bulk Course Enrollment Made Easy
Bulk course enrollment, also known as umbrella accounts, group registration, and corporate licensing, is a great way to boost revenue. It could significantly increase the sales of your online training.
If you've tried to sell bulk course licenses before, you might have felt
- Overwhelmed by the number of different LMS plugins and membership add-ons required to make it all work
- Locked in by all-in-one SaaS platforms that make it easy to sell online courses, but don't offer any group training accounts or group registrations
- Sticker shocked by the cost of developing and maintaining your own umbrella licensing system
We understand the complexity of picking the right learning management system, and the possibility of getting stuck with a system that doesn't deliver the licensing options you need to run a successful online training course.
That’s why we created AccessAlly Teams.
How Does Bulk Course Enrollment Work?
You might have heard bulk courses referred to as umbrella accounts, white label course licensing, team accounts, or volume license registrations.
The idea is simple, but powerful: you create a set of online courses that can be sold to multiple people at once.
The AccessAlly Teams feature is not a way for you to have other course creators upload their courses into a "marketplace" of courses. You'll still be the one in charge of uploading course content.
The company, family, or school that buys your courses are able to manage the people who are enrolled in the courses and see their progress. You can even nest teams within teams, so you might have a management team that oversees several sub-groups of employees.
The best part? You can charge more for the same content when you're offering volume licenses.
How to White Label Courses
When it comes to white labeling your courses, you have a few different options. You can create training materials that you send directly to other companies and organizations, where they can input them into their own LMS platform or tool.
Or you can create training materials and a website that can accept students from many different organizations and schools.
The later gives you a lot more control over the learning experience, as well as how your content is shared. It’s also a more professional experience for other organizations, because you don’t need to sacrifice on their reporting options and you can save them a lot of set up work.
With AccessAlly, you can design different types of “team programs” that organizations can purchase access to and manage their own internal team members for.
It’s the best of both worlds, and it allows you to brand your company and training beyond the content itself, too.
"For anyone not sure whether to go for AccessAlly, I say DO! We came from a Squarespace site with Mailchimp, and I knew absolutely nothing about WordPress, CRM systems or AccessAlly, and have done all the work myself with really fast and solid support from the AccessAlly team. I can't sing everyone's praises highly enough.
Oh and our two relaunched courses on our new AccessAlly platform? Clients just love it, and we’ve just won a MAJOR UK consultancy contract to do team licensing in no small part thanks to the platform we can now offer."

With umbrella accounts you can move your training upmarket without putting in more work.
Start Experiencing Bigger Paydays by Selling Your Courses to Bigger Clients
Everything you need to run group courses through umbrella accounts is included in AccessAlly. You don't need additional LMS or membership plugins. Just connect your email marketing platform you're all set!
#1 Decide on a Team Structure
(You Can Have More Than One)
With AccessAlly Teams you're in full control. You decide what you want your umbrella accounts to look like, from:
- Number of bulk licenses included in a team
- What courses or protected content is included
- The admin management options you make available (from assigning co-leaders, running CRM automation, or deleting members)
Plus, once you have a few different licensing options you can easily have team owners upgrade or downgrade their whole team's access using the AccessAlly subscription replacement feature.
That means more flexibility for you and more opportunities for added revenue as teams expand in size or need additional training.
#2 Set a Price
(Teams Can Purchase Additional Licenses)
Next, you decide how much to charge for bulk course enrollment, whether you want to charge a recurring subscription fee or a flat one-time or payment plan option.
You have two options when it comes to selling bulk courses online:
- Using the AccessAlly built-in order forms (pictured here).
- Using your existing CRM-integrated shopping cart (like Ontraport, Infusionsoft, SamCart, WooCommerce, ThriveCart, ClickFunnels). As long as it integrates with your email platform, you can use it to sell team course licenses.
If you're using AccessAlly's order form functionality, you can also take advantage of 1-click upsells to give team managers a way to purchase additional licenses when they run out... without entering the company credit card again.
If you're not charging for your courses because they're being used at a school, you can import administrators and members directly and bypass the payment steps.
Either way, being in control of the course enrollment process from end to end means you can simplify your life, and get more people learning all in one place.
#3 Administrators Start to Invite Team Members
Once you've made your first bulk course sale or invited the first administrator... it's time to sit back and watch the magic happen.
Team administrators will be able to invite members, manage access, and see their progress all in one place.
If you'd prefer to provide a more hands-on service, you can also gather team member information and bulk upload it for administrators instead.
If you have multiple "types of teams" you can also include each of these administration areas on the same dashboard or keep them separate. With AccessAlly teams, you're in control!
#4 Administrators Can Track Progress and Kickstart Automations
As the site owner, you decide what information you want team administrators to have access to in their dashboard.
Unlike other membership and course plugins that don't talk to each other, with AccessAlly you can pull in all of the progress, quiz, and notes of the students for administrators in a beautiful interface.
Plus with AccessAllu's deep email marketing and CRM automation integration, you can have team leaders kick off emails, give points, or unlock additional courses or content.
This is awesome for parents wanting to manage their kids' learning, or companies that need to track progress toward certifications.
What if you need to have multiple tiers of teams? With AccessAlly, you can create "Teams within Teams" so that one level can create additional levels of team members, and see the progress of all of the members below them.
Display Team Members in Searchable Directories
Doing bulk course enrollment is just the beginning, you can also display teams using the built-in member directory.
This is a search-friendly way to provide progress information and key details across teams at a company (and maybe even motivate people to finish courses faster!).
Search any field in a profile, have members update their own information and photo, and filter based on any criteria you choose.
The Benefits of Course Licensing Done Right
By choosing to license your courses for groups and corporations, you’re tapping into a lucrative new revenue stream for your business.
Clients who purchase multiple seats through course licensing expect a smooth buying experience, so don’t leave your delivery in the hands of a duct taped solution.
By choosing one course licensing and delivery plugin that handles everything from the payment to the delivery and integration with your CRM, you’re elevating the client experience.
That means your customers are more likely to tell their peers and to upgrade and unlock even more seats.
