Pros

It has been good, and I would highly recommend it over the previous system we used. I like most of the newer features and believe it will continue to get better over time.
Canvas has a great overview page and is nice that all of your materials are in one place. I appreciated that it was the main form of communication, document location & even some quizzes and tests.
The overall experience during my last two years of undergraduate school was very pleasant and I sincerely hope that I encountered this software again in graduate school.

Pros

I cannot have made a better choice when I left other platforms for Podia. Customer service is just superb and great listeners.
I like that getting up and selling is easy. I appreciate their integration with Stripe versus relying on a proprietary payment software (like Shopify) because I might not trust it as easily.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, i tried a lot of website to try to sale my online courses : Podia is the best. The UI and the UX are amazing.

Cons

Nothing is intuitive, it's extremely hard to change or fix a mistake on an assignment if you make a mistake, grade syncing with our electronic gradebook is very glitchy.
The parent canvas app is confusing and difficult to navigate. It is hard to discern what assignments are due to strange naming structures.
As a parent, it was difficult to understand where some items were but I feel that was user error and not the platform.

Cons

At the begining I thougth the missing of some functions were a Con.
A $390 small mistake for your small business could cost you everything if you do business with Podia.
No custom embed codes can be added to your sales pages.
