I have a membership based language learning main site.
I wish to turn this into a multisite where paying students have the upgrade option of creating their own blog on the network.
I need to make sure that the main site stays as the learning site, and the student blogs form the basis of a community so they can interact with each other in their dashboards, and the outside world using many of your plugins.
Once the learning site becomes the main site in a network, can, for example, the learning 'posts' and 'pages' be incorporated into the dashboard of the students blog, in effect learning, blogging, socialising at the same time?
Or will the students still need to login to the main learning site to continue their study?
Or are there other ways of achieving this?
The learning site is just basic posts (lessons) arranged it to categories (modules) and linked via pages (intros).
The site is currently two levels of membership, free being general info and demos, and level one being an audio course.
Other levels will be added for advanced learning at a later stage.
Any help in this matter would be very much appreciated. I am an experienced in single site creator, but have yet to set up a multisite.
At present I can only understand the main site in such networks as being a lead in to signing up for a site on the network, rather that a standalone site for its own purpose with the other sites (blogs) using it for something specific - though I hope I am wrong in this assumption.
Again any help in the understanding of what I can and can't do reference having a main 'learning site' along with 'student blogs' in the network should they wish to have one.
Thanks in advance for any help/comments on this.
