Like buying 4 different software tools in one

Reviewed 3 years ago

Really great. Looking forward to publishing the course.

Pros

So - in my day job I create e-Learning. Put me in front of Adobe Captivate or Articulate Storyline and I am totally at home. But then I decide to create a course in my spare time. What could go wrong? Well - to start with the course creator software I tried was super expensive, with monthly fees, or scarily limited features. I managed to land on Thinkific... But knew I needed to upgrade before...

Cons

Ok - the UI could be improved. It's just slightly too simple sometimes. I would love if it included feedback surveys - has quizzes, but they are more like right or wrong - doesn't allow for the users to submit paragraphs of free text. It does webinars - would be good if that functionality could be included to create videos inside courses (screencapture, voice recording or even just voice recording aligned with a downloaded presentation)- I think this may be possible with a workaround (and can always record it using other tools, but I'm feeling spoilt by doing it all in one place)

Great alternative to Teachable

Reviewed 3 years ago

We've been looking for a platform to manage hybrid online classes and revenue generation from educational products. Gurucan fits the bill well with reasonable pricing.

Pros

The system covers a lot of functionality that I'd expect from an education monetisation platform and offers excellent value in comparison with the price offered by competitors.

Cons

It will take some time for the system to reach its maturity. The interface is still a bit rough and the user experience needs streamlining.

Flawed software with great potential

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall the LMS is ok. The landing page creator and integrations with payment processors are poor, requiring you to rather use other sales pages if you aren't able to use Stripe and/or Paypal. Course creation is relatively easy, with a focus on mobile deployment. Sadly, any videos embedded via Vimeo, Youtube, Wistia etc won't be visible via the mobile app, necessitating either uploading videos to Gurucan's...

Pros

Mobile-first focus, ability to integrate PabblyConnect to enrol students, relative ease to create offers containing multiple courses. White-label app possibility (for a price). If you are a gym/yoga or fitness coach, Gurucan will suit you with repetitions, meal plans, recipes etc.

Cons

Poor integrations with video hosting, HTML embedding and operations hit-and-miss at best, team communication hit-and-miss. App is very hit-and-miss. Very hard focus on health-and-fitness industry, not seen in their marketing.

A few hiccups but great for a developing product

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've just began using gurucan I intend to set up some courses beginning with free ones, which they allow free and paid courses on the platform. Which is great. I'm new to all this so their guides are very helpful. As a new course creator I'm excited to start using the platform more and more to host my courses. It's an exciting time for me and for gurucan as they grow and iron out any issues with their software. I look forward to seeing how they develop in the future.

Pros

I love that jt will allow me to create courses in future at an affordable price. I also love that it has a mobile app. In the era of mobile first that's so important. It has guides to take you through setting it up. There are a lot of features included. You can upload just about any kind of media you can think of. As far as a course platform so far it seems really good.

Cons

There is a few teething issues. There's a problem with translation but that doesn't affect me directly but people need a certified translator to translate courses. And pdf files seem to be insecure which is a problem I hope gets resolved. There's a few other issues but that's to be expected with any new software I can only hope they sort it out soon.

Great value for money

Reviewed 3 years ago

I was about to pay for Thinkific when I found out about Gurucan on AppSumo. Getting it was a no-brainer. It does so much, for such an affordable price! It is clear that it's still in its growing phase and that things are still being polished up, so I don't expect it to be perfect yet, but it seems extremely promising to me and I'm looking forward to seeing it reach its full potential.

Pros

I love that it has so much in one platform. If you're not too picky, you can set up everything on Gurucan and you don't even need a separate website. Sales page, emails, webinars, online course, CRM... It's so nice to have it all in one place, and think of the money that saves!! This may be my best investment of the year.

Cons

Email marketing isn't amazing, so I probably won't be doing that from Gurucan for now. But I wasn't expecting it to be at the level of email marketing providers, so that's ok.

Highly recommend Gurucan for all your online course needs!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall Gurucan is a really fantastic tool and with the few improvements I think it could be a potential leader in the online course industry! I love the fact that they are integrating webinars too. It's great to have all the services you need as an entrepreneur all in one. I'm enjoying Gurucan so far and would highly recommend to anyone to host their online courses.

Pros

Gurucan is a great tool to host my online courses. It has a very attractive interface, it's very user friendly and has a lot of different options to use such as email marketing, different offers that you can bundle courses together, webinars, discussions quizzes etc. The customer service is fantastic with Gurucan also, I always have a lot of questions and they are never impatient when answering (even if something was in an article and I missed it!) Really like the ease of use when uploaded videos, adding attachments, homework as necessary and there is no limit to this which is great.

Cons

Some cons are some of the missing features such as; limiting the uses of coupons so that people don't share them and avail of all the discounts. Another improvement to be made is arranging your courses on your home page (at the moment it just automatically populates). For example I would like to move my courses to show the cheapest first but don't have this option. Another vital change needed is the the modules of your course to show on left hand side or right hand side when in another lesson. I know from my experience and other students when going through the course you might want to skip the modules but at the moment on Gurucan you can't see the other modules when you're in a lesson. You also can't click previous lesson.

The best for my needs

Reviewed 9 months ago

I've been looking for the best LMS for my students for years. Even before the pandemic hit and I haven't had any luck finding the quality and price. Gurucan it's the perfect combination of these things and I am so happy. I hope they continue improving their app and don't abandon this amazing product.

Pros

I love the fact that my students are able to see all the content from their phone through the app. They don't need to go to any website to see my content. It's their one touch away.

Cons

The htlm doesn't work on the app but it works on the desktop version

Brilliant for content creators

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall Gurucan is a brilliant new platform for professionals who create content and want to engage with their followers/members in one platform that caters for all of their business needs. From CRM to opportunity to build courses and talk to members in chats. Even though there is plenty more potential for improvements, I cannot recommend it enough! Worth it!

Pros

- easy to use - offers endless configurations of pricing and packages - very responsive support team - plenty of features - great ability to white label! - offers app as well - sweet!

Cons

- it needs more abilities to configure headings - it needs more settings for the rich text, including more fonts, so people can really go further with their branding and use their branding fonts etc. - waiting for Webinars to be fully functional + appear on the app - not simply in Beta, as I have tons of these and I'm itching to publish them - course certificates still in the road map for development

Why Gurucan is different

Reviewed 3 years ago

I can deliver my course material like video courses and audobooks book through my own branded app! This is the future of course consumption.

Pros

Here's what makes this software different from the rest of the elearning apps. This software competes with Kajabi, Mighty Networks, Teachable etc... But only Mighty Networks and Gurucan has a white label brandable app offering. And Mighty Networks charges an arm and a leg for their brandable app. Gurucan costs about as much as Kajabi, but with Gurucan you can create unlimited courses for one price. Kajabi you have to keep paying more with the increasing courses you create.

Cons

As of this writing, the website and landing page editor need more functionality.

Asthetic appeal and functionality missing especially when reviewing content.

Reviewed 3 years ago

At the outset, I actually though that for a start-up like ours this could be a solution but with my experiences on the website and the support I got it would have been nightmarish to have purchased their services and not be able to take my business online because of the lack of support that is quick and effective. In order for a customer to see value, their specific needs have to be addressed not on a public forum but on a one-on-one 10-15 minute meeting telling them what is and what's not possible on your software. But this is probably just the beginning for team GURUCAN and they'll iron out these issues in due course of time. I wish them the best of luck and would be willing to spare time should someone want to get on a zoom call and talk to me :-)

Pros

A good thought through design for an e-learning app/website. Things like payment, feedback, user database with customizable and user-action triggered emails have been incorporated.

Cons

1. The content at times goes missing and with little support available, it's very disheartening to work on everything all over again - they seriously need to ask people to have a word back-up simultaneously. 2. The online school page is a great idea but there are very limited options to the look of that page. In the age where websites like wix.com give you fantastic options, we have font type, font...

Finally, "Courses & App" affordable option!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I came across GuruCan very recently so I am using the platform just several days but the overall experience is quite remarkable. In this two-three days I've done a lot. I very much hope it will stay the same way in the future. 🙂

Pros

I've been looking for courses, membership, payments, CRM platform for ages and tested and tried many. So far GuruCan is the most user friendly and easy to use one. The good thing is there is no compromise in functionality and/or features. I found everything what I need very quickly and it took me a couple of hours to set up my first course ready to go. I find it quite remarkable. The video lessons...

Cons

I am sure along the way I will discover something I would change or do not like but for the moment I do not have much to say . As for now I just experienced some small issue with the delay in decoding of my first uploaded videos. For several hours I had a message "video is decoding ...". After I address it to the support it was quickly resolved.

A Platform That Will Thrive!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I decided to go ahead and purchase Gurucan because I just can't see passing the value of this offer up. Just to give some comparison, the most popular platforms for online learning out there are Thinkific, Teachable, and Podia. If you look at pricing, you will notice that Thinkific and Podia each charge $79/month and Teachable is $99/month. Gurucan is in it's early stages and already a very well thought...

Pros

I like the pricing the most. Compared to most other platforms in the same sector, Gurucan is the most value fo my money.

Cons

The only thing is that the setup is not very intuitive. It takes a bit of computer knowledge in order to use. The best part is the support team is quick and responsive.

Many good features and lots of potential

Reviewed 3 years ago

Good start and lots of potential. This is a new service and they offer a LMS, CRM and payment processing service all for a reasonable price. The individual features are fairly basic at this stage but they seem to have ticked all the right boxes so far so I'm hopeful they will have made considerable improvements to their feature set within a year or two.

Pros

1. Provides a one-stop-shop for those looking to create and sell online courses. 2. Mobile first - most learners are on phone/tablets these days so mobile first is a must. 3. Many additional features to a traditional LMS such as webinars and payment processing 4. Cloud based - no installing or updating required. 5. Provides a white-label service. 6. Webhooks to connect with Zapier and then other solutions for specific needs

Cons

1. Price for the white-label app is crazy talk compared to the cost of creating an app - should be a one-off payment especially as it is aimed at mobile users and as a white label service. 2. No ability to import LTI, xAPI, SCORM or other existing course content 3. No VAT or tax management - a big issue if you are providing a service to that takes payments 4. Course content creation tools are fairly basic. Add text, images, videos but nothing like what typical e-learning content would require.

Great product but I see more potential in the future

Reviewed 3 years ago

It is simple to use, the customer service is great, I love the phone app, the price is great for the value-added.

Pros

- Sales oriented, integration with ClickFunnels and strong emphasis on reselling to old clients with automations, email templates, push-notifications, email broadcast, coupons. - Great CRM, the chat is a great feature. - The phone app is clean and user friendly.

Cons

- I am not able to insert HTML on the course page. I need to insert code to use the videos on my cloud and this is a big limitation. - It is annoying that you can do some things for the website experience of the training like the HTML insert, but that will not show up at the phone app version. One of the competitive advantages of this company over others is the phone app.

GuruCAN!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Really great! Features Support Price - are all awesome

Pros

For the most part, its super easy to use. Also, the admin panel functions super fast, which makes a difference when making lots of changes. Mobile app out of the box is cool - as there's no other content there just my course. No other teachers. Nothing. Which is really cool. Can use a lot of different features within the courses too. Whitelabel web, great support, challenges to run alongside the course, set different chat groups for different groups/users/courses, marketing/engagement automations. And a white label app option! We get a lot!

Cons

It would be great if there were how to videos for everything - but I understand this is new and these things can take time. The support team are great via live chat anyway so anything I'm not sure about they've been helping me with. Thanks [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN]! Some aspects of the admin panel can be improved - but nothing that seriously affects anything - I think the admin panel is strong.

Game Changer to Online Course Offering!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I've struggled to find an online course program that did everything at a cost I could afford. This fits the bill!

Pros

This software was easy to set up and implement. The process of set-up was so concise that I was able to create an SOP from it.

Cons

My only issue (but not a deal breaker by any means) is that I can only have one "school." Having multiple schools could be beneficial. However, the unlimited course allowance makes this easy to work around.

It can.

Reviewed 3 years ago

I generally think it is good value for me as someone who is on a single payment lifetime deal. I hope the platform will mature with time, however in its current state, it is useable. I'm sure im going to need to contact the support team for minor things and from what I've heard they are responsive. Oppertunity to be really great, but right now its just decent.

Pros

I got this software as a lifetime deal, so 'my' value for money is very good. I have worked with similar systems in the past, and so far this one is pretty nice.

Cons

It takes a while to figure it all out, there are some issues that im still not sure how to fix. I feel like its in beta at the moment, but its promising.

LMS Mobile App - Excited!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Getting a course created and launched quickly. A proof of concept lower cost offering. Then will be building from that level with more elaborate offerings.

Pros

I recently purchased Gurucan and I'm super excited. I recently took a 7 week course through another organization that was all mobile app based with daily micro-lessons. It was an excellent way to learn in small chunks. I'm super excited to use this same approach with my content - and give my clients the ability to use the mobile and/or web app. Gurucan has a good LMS foundation now. With what the leadership has planned for its roadmap, there is bright future ahead. 

Cons

This is newer software. As such it has some rough edges in place. Fortunately, the rough edges for me right now are not in places that will cause issues. And by the time I will need them, the product roadmap has them forecast to be addressed.

Impressive, versatile e-learning software!

These guys have only worked on this for about a year. Their support response is fast and friendly and they are listening to their customers.

Pros

I’m very impressed with all the versatile tools Gurucan has to offer. Once you get used to the logic for adding and formatting content, it is quite easy. Video upload is fast, and to my pleasant surprise, embedding videos from Alugha worked like a charm, as well as embedding from publit.io.

Cons

The only one that did not work was embedding from Spotlightr videos, but that appears to be on the roadmap. Unlimited users/courses and possibility to get customer menus in any language in the future makes this a no brainer at this price.

It's an all in one learning platform, offering course creation, email marketing, landing pages, and even an app with push notifications. It's way more affordable than other solutions like Kajabi.
