2018-06-22

This software helps me have a modern and useful course for my users.

Just recently they have made it possible to give students a certificate for completing the course, which has long been a request of our users.

I wish there was more API functionality through Teachable.

A Great Platform for Online Courses

Teachable is a great option for creating course content.

2018-02-06

Easily integrates with Convertkit as well as other third party programs.

Pros

They also now offer secured site certificates on your sites at no additional cost.

Cons

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

Great por trainings!

2019-05-01

The main objective of the platform is to create content to share and sell that knowledge.

Pros

You can create a landing page for every course and let the students apply for your courses.

Cons

If you're looking for an internal LMS Teachable is not the solution. But that will be a great opportunity for Teachable to configure and make some updates for a Company LMS product. For sure another business model.

Easy to use, well organized platform for learning

2018-10-31

Pros

What I like most about Teachable is that this platform is well organized and its structure courses so simple that couldn't be down in any other way better.

Cons

I don't use Teachable platform for distributing my own content just as a learner when I enrolled in somebody else course, but I know for a fact that Teachable despite its simplicity and well-organized structure also provides its own web host, payment processor and if you will put your free course on teachable it will not take any fees from you for peoples enrollments.

Great online course solution

2021-02-10

Teachable gives us an opportunity to provide an online/hybrid learning format to reach new people through technology.

Pros

The format is easy to use and provides an online learning platform that is visually appealing.

Cons

It is somewhat of an expensive option unless you are planning to use it for multiple courses and content.

I didn't know I could be a teacher

2020-09-19

I started using Teachable as a test. I thought maybe I could teach the things I know by being a sales executive for more than 15 years.

Pros

It's really easy to create courses, tests and to integrate other softwares to the app.

Cons

You need a lot of time to prepare courses and tests.

easy to sell online courses

2018-07-10

You can use the system of free courses, but for high-level full-distance education it would be preferable to acquire a different software.

Pros

Easy to use to create a new course and upload the content.

Cons

Also does not have projects and portfolios for courses. Lack of integration - Although Teachable covers the basics, there are areas in the integration that need improvement, is very much based on Zapler

Teachable is pretty darn good

2019-03-20

They have a lot to offer for anyone building courses, from solopreneurs who teach to large companies who provide internal training.

Pros

There's plenty of integrations as well, and you can modify the landing pages/sales pages/course pages.

Cons

I do wish they offered some features like free trials of our courses, but it's not a major con.

Teachable review

2020-12-21

I am now using it for creating courses of folk and traditional dances and distribute these courses to people all over the world.

Pros

Teachable provides sufficient course creation, marketing and analytics tools even in its free pricing plan.

Cons

In my opinion, if this information was included in each pricing plan, the creators would be able to better match their course creation requirements with actual hardware resource levels.

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.

A complete LMS platform

2019-05-24

We like teachable for easy and fast delivery courses

Pros

A complete LMS platform, a lot of features and custom designs you can use, you can actually build the whole website using teachable with the e-learning part integrated into it

Cons

The price, it's really high, of course, you can use it for free but the commissions are high

User-friendly Software

2018-12-10

Teachable is an excellent learning platform that allows teachers to create courses quickly.

Pros

Teachable is user-friendly from the moment you start the program. The standard template is simply to use and the software offers numerous options for students and creators. I also like that you don't require your own website to use this program.

Cons

The pricing of this program made it more challenging to offer cost-effective courses.

Highly customizable software platform for diverse courses, learning groups, and users.

2018-07-02

Pros

No two courses need look the same in Teachable -- this software provides excellent and robust options for designing course layout, modules, accessibility, focus areas, and more, while remaining quick to learn and use, which is a plus for busy instructors.

Cons

Not as many students arrive to the class with prior experience using a Teachable-hosted course. The software learning curve is quick and easy, but a bit of learning time is helpful to include.

It's a good alternative to marketplace platforms like Udemy

2018-02-15

Pros

The interface is very intuitive and with supporting docs and responsive customer support , the learning curve is not steep at all . The course making interface is simple drag and drop editor and very easy to use .

Cons

Nothing built on authoring tools like say, articulate can be hosted here .

Teachable is great for content creators!

2020-04-09

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.

Pros

If you are looking to create courses or to grow your online business Teachable is the place to be.

Cons

The only con about Teachable is that they recently changed how their creators can design their sales pages for their courses. This can be a learning curve if you don't know much about web designing.

HQ Video or Global Customers find another platform

2020-10-03

Given the first and third issue above I'm moving to another platform ASAP, I hope this review helps inform others before making a choice.

Pros

The payment gateway and ease of setting up courses. It is easy to get started and the onboarding example courses and content was very helpful.

Cons

My second issue is navigating the payment end is complicated when you have customers that forgot to add a coupon (especially for a subscription) or if a customer misses a payment there is very little you can do. Third, my customer based has grown significantly in EU.

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.

Good features; Limited support

2020-08-26

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.

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.

Quickest way to go online with your courses

2019-12-06

Overall experience with Teachable has been great. The UI and UX is soothing from both the views , as a teacher and as a student.

Pros

. - Teachable does all the heavy lifting by itself allowing you to focus on creating your course.

Cons

They may want to look into an alternative pricing structure for teachers interested in few courses with limited no of students.

Intuitive and great value

2019-12-03

I was investigating learning platforms and this one had great reviews, reasonable pricing, and really stood out.

Pros

I like how the certificates of completion are built right into the platform.

Cons

Not much bad I can say about it. The pricing structure is so much better than something like Kajabi (although I believe Kajabi has better marketing features). It's a great platform to get started with.
