A course management app for the non-profit sector is a mobile application designed to help non-profit organizations deliver training courses and educational content to their members. Course management apps provide a convenient way for workers in a non-profit organization to access educational material from any location with an Internet connection.
Course management apps for non-profits are most similar to other co-creation collaboration apps that focus on networking, group projects, and community building. A few examples of popular course management apps are Canvas by Instructure, Blackboard, Moodle, and Edmodo.

A course management app can grow its user base within the non-profit sector by targeting courses that are relevant to a specific type of user. The app's primary mode of growth should be through word-of-mouth referrals from existing users. In order to build this network effect, the app needs to provide a high level of value for specific types of users, such as small business owners and community organizers.
The legal risks for a course management app depend on the nature of the content being delivered. Content that includes sensitive or intellectual property should be carefully reviewed under fair use to ensure that you have not inadvertently breached any copyrights, trademarks, or patents. If the content does not fall under fair use, you will want to consider whether it is appropriate to host the material at all given the risk of a copyright infringement action resulting in costly legal fees and/or statutory damages.
