Multiple Seats Offering is a B2B toolkit product that enables your customers to sell multiple courses to a group of users by simultaneously handing over the management of this group to your B2B clients.


With Multiple Seats Offering, you can create Seats and Seat Offerings and select the courses included, the number of seats, the maximum number of users that can be part of this Seat Offering, and assign one or more Seat managers to this offering.


The Seat manager will be able to bulk import and enroll users to this Seat offer, manage the available seats and the enrollments, and monitor the user progress.


Seat Offerings vs. Seats

A Seat Offering is a separate product mainly consisting of courses and seats. The Seat offering defines the specific courses that are included in this product as well as the number of seats that are available for use.


A Seat is a virtual chair and defines the number of users that are allowed to be simultaneously enrolled in the courses included in the Seat Offering. This means that the number of users enrolled in the courses of the Seat offering could be a lot more than the number of seats available, as the functionality allows multiple turnovers of the seats.


The Multiple Seats Offering system is not connected to the Payment Gateways of your school; hence, you cannot receive payments via the LearnWorlds school for a Seat Offering.



Seat Managers

The Seat Manager can manage the users added to the seat offering (e.g., bulk import and enroll users to this offering, manage the available seats, manage their enrollments, and monitor their progress). You can find out more on How to Create a Seat Manager Role.


The seat manager will be able to access the Seat Manager Dashboard if the Seat Offering is inactive; however, they will not be able to perform any actions (add users to the offering, add/ remove to/ from the seat, enroll/ unenroll).


Business Case & Example

With the LearnWorlds Multiple Seats Offering feature, you can cater to a similar sample business case like the one below.


Many LearnWorlds schools need to train their own or their client's employees besides selling courses. They may want to group them together, separately from the other learners, and assign someone to be responsible for monitoring these employees. Schools that sell B2B need the management of the users to be on their customers’ side. 


For example, a company wants to train their employees and buy some courses from your LearnWorlds school, but they need to add, enroll, unenroll and monitor their employees by themselves, without the interference of the school. We share an example below:

  • Number of courses: 5
  • Number of seats: 20


In this case, you can add 20 users to the "Company A" Seat Offering, and 20 employees will occupy all 20 seats per time. You can enroll all or some of these 20 users and choose all or some of the courses related to the Seat Offering. At a point (whether the users have completed the courses or not), you can remove them from their seats and add another 20 new users.


Your customer will be able to manage the employees/users added to the seat offering using the Seat Manager Role (see below).


How to Create a Seat Offering

To create a Seat Offering:

1. Go to Marketing Group SalesMultiple Seats.

2. Click on Create a Seat offering.

3. Follow the steps of the creation wizard.

Notes: 

  • Max Number of Users is not a mandatory field. If a number is not added there, the users that can be added to the seat offers are unlimited. 
  • You cannot create a Seat Manager via the creation wizard. You can make an existing account (with any role) a Seat Manager. Upon creating the Seat offering, the system will alter the user role of the selected user to the predefined Seat manager role. This can be changed later on by editing the Seat offering under the Actions tab (see below).
  • A seat manager can have multiple seat offerings assigned to them. 
  • A seat offering can have multiple seat managers (or multiple users with seat management levels).
  • The Seat Manager will be able to access the Seat Manager Dashboard if the Seat Offering is inactive; however, they will not be able to perform any actions (add/remove users from the seat offers, enroll/ unenroll, etc.).
  • The Seat access is set to inactive by default.

Hover over the top ribbon and click on Add Users. You can then download the excel template and fill in the user details (username and email) in excel to add users to this specific Seat Offering user list. 

Note: You do not enroll them in any course or seat hence these users will not have an occupied Seat or enrollment.

  • Add & Enroll Users

Hover over the top ribbon and click on Add & Enroll Users. You can then download the excel template and fill in the user details (username and email) in excel to add the users for the Seat offering (username and email).

  • Manage tab: You can hover under it to:
    • Add to a Seat: (applies to users that currently do not occupy a seat). When you click on add a seat, the Enroll User side form will appear, and you will be asked to choose none (so that the user will only be occupying a seat and will not be enrolled in any courses), one, or multiple courses to enroll the users in, and you will need to click on Add to the seat.
    • Remove from a Seat: (applies to users currently occupying a seat). The users will be unenrolled from all courses that they were enrolled in, and the seat will also be removed from this user.
