Xero Learn started it’s life as Xero’s Lifelong Learning Platform. It is an attempt by Xero to change the status quo of TAFE and other education institutions who have used the free trial version of MYOB accounting software for decades, since it was available as the MYOB Test Drive CD!
At the time of writing Xero Learn was charged out to education companies for $6 per month.
Although originally offered only to universities Xero Learn is now promoted to any short course creator.
Most accounting education providers offer their courses within a Learning Management System (LMS) like Moodle, Totara, Blackboard etc and often offer training in several different accounting programs. The most popular ones are:
MYOB AccountRight & MYOB Essentials
Intuit’s QuickBooks Online,
Reckon One and
LIFELONG Learning is available from EzyLearn using our Moodle LMS for all the major accounting software as well as Microsoft Office and Digital & Social Media marketing training courses.
It’s interesting and exciting that Xero now offer their Xero Learn service to training course publishers like EzyLearn for $6 per month. This ongoing access to Xero Accounting software seemed exciting at first but then I realised that it’s just accounting software! AND it’s just for training! AND 30 days is MORE than enough per case study!
Most students don’t want to access Xero accounting software forever. Even business owners don’t really want to pay an ongoing fee for their accounting software – they want something else..
