Don’t Use Kajabi For Your Online Courses. Here's Why!

November 18, 2021

In the last few weeks, The Facebook Company changed its name to Meta and turned the spotlight onto the Metaverse. If you're unfamiliar with the term, Metaverse is a 3-D Virtual Reality universe where users are able to live and interact with one another. There's been plenty of discussions about the Metaverse as the 'future of the internet'. The name change of Facebook confirms these claims that we're heading into a brand new world completely.

How will this impact the online learning experience? Absolutely. But how do you know?

Imagine that you are teaching your online class in a two-dimensional world, where you and each of your students are characters from video games. It's a 2D classroom that has desks, benches and more. Everyone can move around your virtual classroom using arrow keys. It's like the game Dave and Mario. All participants can turn off their microphones for a conversation with one another. The experience of a class simulated!

Learning was always a shared experience. Virtual classrooms may appear as a mere visual addition at first, but these settings have proven to boost retention among students as the course moves along. In addition, it has been proven to have significant impacts on the social aspect of online learning. Students in these environments are more comfortable with their tutor and fellow students since it mimics the experience that they are in the classroom. The final thing to note is this is the future of learning online and if you're not on board, you're being left out!

It's only an issue of time before coursemakers start moving to platforms that provide access to these ecosystems. With Meta as the leading platform, Metaverse is the way to go. The sooner you are on the vessel the better your figures will appear in terms of revenue and engagement. Take advantage of it now when it's still in the early stages.

A platform such as Kajabi isn't and likely does not offer a feature that permits online course creators to host their student groups in virtual settings. If you're trying to ensure your course is future-proof, Kajabi might not be the ideal tool to start with. Additionally, Kajabi lacks many features I believe are vital for online courses such as live audio and video, for instance. The courses of today comprise of recorded lectures as well as Live Q&As. It costs $200 to purchase Kajabi and then paying for a Zoom subscription on top of it to allow video integration. Makes no sense right?

Recognizing the coming EdTech trend before it was even a thing we designed Scenes a complete platform for hosting your online courses and community, as well as an online classroom to your class. Scenes is a platform designed to cater to the online course creators that will be the next generation! Let me provide you with some quick details about the differences that are available between Kajabi and Scenes, so you can take a fair look.
