Software and hardware options.
Congrats on preparing to launch your online course. From personal experience, I know that they are a fun and lucrative way to grow your business and your brand.
There are a few approaches to hosting your online course. There are options like Teachable and Thinkific - both are solid choices.
They are both on the easier-to-setup end of the spectrum. I recommend them for your MVP (Minimum Viable Product) to test your theory or prove your concept. The ease of use comes with a notable trade off: neither offer a tremendous amount of customization options.
I prefer WordPress-based LMS (Learning Management System) because of the power and flexibility of WordPress. Many work with ecommerce solutions like WooCommerce and can expand to accommodate your course as it grows. In this category, I recommend LearnDash or LifterLMS.
If you have specific questions about how to launch your course, how to vet your ideas before you commit to choosing a platform, or how to market it, contact me or set up a consulting call here on Clarity.
All the best,
I'm using Teachable.com and so far I really like it. I'm producing a course on "How to get massive amounts of free PR" that I will be launching in March 2018.
This is something I have been researching for a while now as we have built many courses in the past and have tried a lot of softwares.
The ones I really like are:
They have a great platform and courses are all they do. They make it very easy and hands off to create an awesome course with very little worries and tech skills.
They also have a great "Membership" / "Course" option which we have used in the past. There is a learning curve here and requires more tech skills but overall is still great. You do have a tad more control with this option and can customize more things which you can't do in Teachable.
Currently, i'm personally moving forward with Teachable as we will be launching a few courses around How to build a writing team and how to outline and structure a blogging strategy in the B2B space. Teachable allows us to just focus on the content and makes it easy.
Hope this helps and if I can help in any way let me know
For me, I've used a ton, but I fell in love with Thinkific when I started using it. It hosts my videos, makes it super easy to make courses (and bundle them) and it has an affiliate program built in. I didn't need anymore. They also have flexible pricing.www.schoolofpodcasting.com/thinkific
