Using Sanity and Gatsby or Next.js in the Learning Management System Space

Last updated: Apr 29, 2021
Has anyone built out anything for Sanity in the Learning Management System or Customer/Partner Education space? My org has a Sanity/Gatsby site which is working well for us. We’re now looking at providing professional development content (rich content, though mainly video) with progress tracking via login and some email interaction to help engagement. Something like the experience Google offer with their Intellum-based Skillshop: https://skillshop.exceedlms.com/student/path/61209-fundamentals-training
We could build it out with Sanity (and having the content in Sanity would be a big plus for us) but we’re interested in something more off the shelf for capacity/cost reasons. We’re a non-profit and want broad and free access to our content so we struggle a bit with commercial LMS per-user pricing.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Hey Matt! I’ve seen a few similar projects come through here. I think

shared one a while back, but I could be wrong. Unfortunately, I can’t link to that post since the slack archives only have a month or so of posts.
When considering costs though, it’s important to keep in mind that you would have to use an external service for your authentication (and you would need an Enterprise if you want to implement SSO).

Thanks

, I really appreciate the pointer. egghead seem to be using Next/Sanity which might be a logical step for us if we build it ourselves. We’re OK with some degree of slow-scaling cost (e.g. user auth), it’s the kind of pricing models that some products have that are more focussed on employee training or paid courses that don’t translate so well to free to access content :simple_smile: Thanks again.
