    Pros
    Overall, my experience has been great. Their customer service team is super helpful when you need them and the platform is very familiar to a lot of other bloggers and online business owners.

    I like the helpful tips and how useful they are. I also like how I can put my information on slides, so I can create my courses.

    Cons
    Very depressing especially when they see. Know and hear that you are struggling over and over and over and still are unable to cancel on your own.

    More worrying at the time of writing is that the platform seems to suffer occasional downtime, most significantly on Black Friday, which will have inevitably lost course creators money.

    I dislike that the free option is going away for users with more than 10 students. I also dislike that Teachable still takes a cut of sales, even with paid options.

    Teachable Moments

    Reviewed 10 months ago

    Overall Teachable solved a revenue issue for us! We needed a place for people to go and purchase out products and downloadable services without having to start from scratch - which is quite costly - and Teachable allowed us to do that. It help us generate necessary revenue with ease.

    Pros

    Teachable is very user friendly. I am not a very technically inclined person and this program gave me the ease I needed to set our digital classroom. AT the time we began using the company could not afford more than $100 a month and Teachable was very affordable for out small nonprofit.

    Cons

    I would say that my least favorite aspect of Teachable is or was the design templates, although they recently upgraded this feature and you can do a few more fancy things to your store and landing page.

    Teachable--- Hosting Your Online Classes

    Reviewed 2 years ago

    My overall experience with Teachable has been very positive. Responsive customer support, improved features, and excellent onboarding training. My only frustration is the inability to auto-schedule blog posts.

    Pros

    I've been a Teachable user for a few years (I was a user when the name was Fedora). Since then, Teachable has been one of the most mentioned names for online course creators. One of the things I like best about Teachable is how easy it is to use the platform. In a matter of time, you can create an online course, including curriculum and media. This is super convenient for both the novice online course creator and the more experienced ones. It's a time saver!

    Cons

    Since 2019, the blog feature of being able to auto-schedule posting has not worked. I've placed support tickets to address the issue, but as of this writing (Feb 2020), the feature still isn't working. I write blog content well in advance and was able to schedule blog posts with ease. Now I have to set a reminder to go into my Teachable account to manually post the blog. This is not ideal.

    Too Expensive, Not Designed for Marketers

    Reviewed 2 months ago

    I wish I had signed up for the free or lower-cost plan first. It's very difficult to switch platforms, so this is a decision that requires a lot of pre-purchase diligence. I now use Systeme.io, which offers way more features at a fraction of the price.

    Pros

    The course building platform itself is great. Support is decent for the most part, although they don't really engage well with feature requests.

    Cons

    Teachable seems to look at sales as an incidental part of course creation and teaching. Here are a few examples: 1) They don't have a drag-and-drop landing page builder. The templates are really generic and it's hard to get a sleek-looking landing page. 2) No email automation. You can send one-off emails to your students, but that's it. 3) You can't add a lead magnet to collect email addresses....

    Share your knowledge!

    Reviewed 4 months ago
    Pros

    The things that I like about this software are; People can share their knowledge/skills to other people who are interested while getting paid at the same time. They are their own boss. People have options to customize/personalize their content.

    Cons

    I don't think I have any least like about this software.

    Teachable: Course Creators are Lost Without it!

    Reviewed 6 months ago

    It's a smooth journey and you have everything you need in one place. Excellent UI and overall it's all you need.

    Pros

    The overall coverage of all features a course creator needs. They even provide a payment gateway, which alone saves you plenty in commisions and monthly fees.

    Cons

    Just need an Android app. Not having an Android app forces most of my students to watch the courses on their browsers.
