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.
I love the aesthetics and the User Interface. It's all very clean and feels comfortable.

Pros

I appreciate the ease of setting up Google classroom and the variety of tools available. It is a great way to keep the class connected as a learning community and help them stay organized.
Google Classroom has been a lifesaver for me as an educator. I enjoy implementing technology into my classroom and Google Classroom served as an efficient platform to do that for my students.
I liked that Google Classroom was easy to use and navigate. It had a lot of great functionality and made our young daughter's online school experience a good one.

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.

Cons

The problem is that it's hard to spot actual messages from teachers in that sea of unread notifications. There are also issues with being unable to tell whether work was submitted.
Another problem that could make lecturers feel uncomfortable is that the assignments distributed to the students may be re-edited by themselves, which is unacceptable.
So if accidentally any part of the assignment gets deleted then it creates a problem for other students as well.

Reviewed this product for classroom use...and found a second source of income for colleagues

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

The software is intuitive and I can use what I load in class and use it. Once it's saved, it's there for years to come. I can have as many students and courses as I want...and I can sell them if I am able to do so (maybe a project for later)

Cons

The pricing of this program makes it lack feasibility for my school or classroom. To have five owners, we would pay a month. If I am able to sell my courses, then this might be offset by the income...I'm unsure since that's not my purpose in use. For classroom instruction, this program probably isn't the best. But, if you have great courses you can sell (private industry), you may make good money with this. It just wasn't a fit for my purposes.

Teachable Moments

Reviewed a year 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.

Attractive and easy to use dashboard

Reviewed 5 years ago

Made it easy to sell my courses directly to my student without losing a decent percent of my income

Pros

Easy to use, The admin dashboard is easy and pretty straightforward, I like the "How do I" drop-down button as it's really helpful when stuck. I like the fact that the dashboard provides links to tutorials on how to create a course and how to customize the look and feel of your website/classroom. What I really loved was that the information part of the course creation process is a lot like Skillshare and Udemy, that made me relax as it was a familiar system.

Cons

The emails. I'd prefer they stick to sending an email one or twice a month or even three. Last month alone I received 12 emails from them. That's a bit too much for me. Sadly, the link to the tutorial on how to customize the look and feel of the classroom is broken. Thinkific's free plan offers more than Teachable free plan.

Good features; Limited support

Reviewed 2 years ago

I'll continue using Teachable, now that I've gone up the learning curve. I wish creating a course were a little more intuitive.

Pros

After watching some tutorials and spending a bit of time, I was able to get the hang of creating online course through Teachable. They have good features like affiliate marketer enabling, adding a coaching service, and a backoffice bookkeeping option. They also offer a 30-day money back guarantee.

Cons

It's difficult to get live support, and the website offers no help in marketing your materials. It's nearly impossible to find your class in a google search.

A Giant in Online Courses

Reviewed 4 years ago

Teaching other has always been a passion of mine especially if it helps my students learn from my mistakes and avoid them in their own career. Being in the Copywriting field for years has always instilled in me that you have to keep learning and keep teaching others... and Teachable gives you that option. It's easy to get into and setup plus you get a lot of nice features to make your teachable page look really great! Overall, Teachable is one website you should definitely put your mind into.

Pros

It's probably one of the better choices when it comes to making courses online. First of all, you get a lot of options to integrate with 3rd party software which is great since you don't have to start from scratch in some aspects. Second, it's really easy to start teaching your audience online with Teachable. You can easily add new courses, record some lessons and launch! You get great payment options to choose from to give your customers some variety, also, it's easy to setup your page to make your "classroom" look even better.

Cons

It does take time to setup everything if you're planning to work on many courses and uploading a lot of material. While you can get most of it done by the time your free trial is over, it's always great to upgrade from the start to be able to take advantage of the premium features Teachable offers. One more thing is that, it's a bit pricey compared to other choices however, if you want great quality, it will cost you.

Pros

Good structure to course, nice layout. Good analytics. We have not launched our course yet but have been using it to set up for the past month.

Cons

Video uploads take forever. Like 10 times what it take to upload to Youtube. One video of 150 MB can take 1.5-2 hours to upload on extremely high speed internet. (17mb per sec download speed). We have talked to support and they say if our videos are over 500MB then it can take a long time. And if your computer falls asleep it will stop...or it can just stop anyways and you have to start to whole process over again. The bulk uploader is a joke. If you want to upload 10 video plan on staying on your computer for 15 hours. The only reason we have stuck with it is that once you invest 100 hours you hate to throw it away. Also, thinkific doesn't have great analytics, so we feel there is no better option at the moment. If only Google would create good platform.

LIKE A LIFE CLASSROOM

Reviewed 3 years ago

Overall Google ClassRoom is so useful for students and make classes cool

Pros

As a student, I really like this app because had made me one of my classes in college the one that I loved the most because we used this app a lot and everything was there with just one click, this is an app that it's so useful for a student and I also make teachers life easier and relaxed, because you as a student have everything there, you don't ask a lot of questions to your professors because now you can have access to all.

Cons

that at the beginning you don't know how everything is working need a better teachable first use.
