Attractive and easy to use dashboard

2017-12-07

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

Pros

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.

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.

The easiest, most streamlined online course platform out there.

2018-04-07

I'm able to offer two online courses for my blog audience and create a new revenue stream for my business.

Pros

I love that Teachable handles all of the online payments, accepts all major credit cards, and handles any taxes necessary. I also love that they not only offer a platform to host your sites, but also include sales pages, check out pages, and thank you pages.

Cons

I always struggle to find how to change preset text, as well as find more information about my students (like who completed the course and when, etc).

Great low maintenance platform

2018-04-01

Pros

Now that they're adding features comparable with more premium tools - like in affiliate management and customizable checkout pages, it's great to have everything in one spot.

Cons

Its all-in-one nature does mean that sometimes you have a few things - like instant payouts - that are only on the largest plan/more expensive than with a niche tool's plan, but then you'd need to use multiple niche tools.

One versatileLLMS

2018-03-27

In my experience it is a great teaching platforms, because it allows me to concentrate only on the part of teaching because I do not know much about programming or program updates since the same tool takes care of that and I can concentrate only on the knowledge that they want to give. Can be flexibility for the different audiencia nivel.

Pros

It has several important features but among the most outstanding is very easy to use since the platform is very intuitive and does not correspond a great challenge to use it, besides having a large number of tools from which I can attend the student as for example the power create blogs and finally their different forms of payment gateways can affiliate with different accounts being an excellent option.

Cons

It is an excellent platform because it is simple for both the teacher and the student, adapting to the preferences of the author of the course giving a great capacity for organization over the various contents.

Teachable is fantastic if you need to get a course up and running without the technical know-how

2017-10-03

Pros

Everything around a online course can be built on Teachable.

Cons

The lack of mobile responsiveness, and embedded content is hit or miss.

Made the Switch from Self-hosting!

I recently made the switch to Teachable from self-hosting my courses because of the professional looking layout of the course & curriculum, and the opportunity to add affiliates with easy tracking.

A solid course builder that's easy to set up.

2018-02-28

This is a solid platform for selling your online courses. The setup is easy and the learning curve is small.

Pros

I tried Teachable after deciding against a course plugin for my Wordpress site.

Cons

Moving around in the course builder is not as smooth as I'd like compared to other course builders.

I host video training courses on Teachable and love their platform.

2018-06-05

Teachable allows me to quickly and easily organize my video course content in a logical manner.

Pros

They have features like drag and drop or duplicate that make creating training courses a breeze.

Cons

I'm on the basic plan and I think it's a little pricey, but I get it; they're in business to make money. I wish they had a plan between the free plan and the basic plan with less features than the basic as this would probably be a better fit for me.

Teachable has been a breeze to use, and they're committed to helping their customers succeed.

2017-06-07

Teachable has provided the framework I need to put out my online courses and provided resources to help me launch those courses successfully.

Pros

Teachable also provides tuns of resources to help course creators get started producing high-quality courses.

Cons

Sometimes the text editor can be buggy, requiring me to refresh the page. My gripes are pretty minor.

Hoping there is a better software out there.

2017-12-08

Pros

Good structure to course, nice layout.

Cons

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.

Teachable is a great option for creating course content.

2018-02-06

I love the features offered when creating course content.

Pros

Teachable makes it easy to set up a course in a small amount of time.

Cons

Pricing on higher level packages could be better so more people can access and showcase their content skills in the form of courses.

2018-01-18

Pros

The tools is extremely easy to configure and in less than 30 minutes you can get your course running in your own school.

Cons

In my case, the fact that I had to pay some amount for a basic service made me not like it, but the platform is good.

A great online course platform that's improving all the time

2018-04-21

Pros

It makes it very easy to make a good looking site and get a course up for sale.

Cons

I would like to see them roll out new features more consistently so that their users are on the cutting edge of online course technology rather than just slightly behind.

Fantastic platform for online schools.

2018-02-28

I was able to create my own online school, website, landing pages and payment portal with ease. I highly recommend Teachable .

Pros

Easy to set up, very reasonably priced and great tutorials and advice for marketing your courses. If you have online curriculum you'd like to share with the world, this is a very seamless process.

Cons

Unable to add HTML features within the curriculum itself. They do not do any marketing (like Udemy), whereas they would market globally and the school owner would get a smaller percentage of the sales. I think this is good for reaching a larger audience.

Love Teachable- especially how willing they are to help you get started!

2017-11-01

Pros

I also like how much training and help they give, and that their structure is pretty easy to understand.

Cons

Udemy seems to be the platform that real online course marketers love to hate, so mimicking their style seems to undermine their expertise.

Teachable Is Great!

2016-05-20

I've tried out Ruzuku, Thinkific, Kajabi (Abnormally expensive), and a ZippyCourses, along with a couple more wordpress plugins. Teachable is hands down THE BEST platform I've found (and it's oddly cheaper). The team is great, agile, and when you join you become part of the teachable community, that is ALWAYS there for you. It's not just the software that makes Teachable so great, but the connections and information you get as well. They work with a huge network of incredible influencers and entrepreneurs that I've personally networked with and now worked with, and their information is top notch.

Pros

Incredible customer service, drip content, beautiful platform, awesome reporting, great editing features, and a bunch of integrations.

Cons

Ankur sometimes takes a while to get back to you. But he IS the CEO. I'm surprised he even answers our questions.

Payments always late

2017-07-08

Pros

It is easy to use, and easy to share and sell content.

Cons

Money is not paid regularly and you can be waiting months to receive the money from your courses. Not worth it at all of this income is important to you!

Simple Online Course Option for Non-Techy People

2018-05-13

I love that there's a free option and that it's pretty easy to use.

Pros

I like that it's easy to use.

Cons

The only thing I can't think of is that it's not as customizable as I'd like it to be.

a solid platform for online courses

2018-04-18

Overall, a really great solution for hosting your training materials.

Pros

Have a couple of trainings hosted on Teachable and have found it to be great software. Easy to set up and pretty flexible.

Cons

Wish the first level had more features, like being able to integrate with Zapier in the way that I need it to, which is automatically adding people who buy via my shopping cart.
