Kajabi Lack The Basic Features Required To Run A Course

November 18, 2021

Recently, I spoke to a handful of online course providers who host their course using Kajabi. I was interested in understanding the challenges course creators have to face when using the existing platform solutions for course hosting. In this instance, Kajabi.

I have heard a lot of serious complaints as well as "I wish that Kajabi had X feature" comments. The software did not have an in-built audio/video feature to allow Live QnA conversations as well as a course calendar as well as video streaming. There were other key features. What surprised me was the absence of the Group Chat feature.

I wouldn't be so shocked if learning is just the process of absorbing information from the teacher. However, the truth is that it's not; learning is a social activity. There have been numerous studies and studies that show that learning happens better when it's conducted as an interaction with others. Imagine this scenario If you teach an online course, but there's not a single location in your course hosting software that your students can interact and communicate with one another. The only way to solve this is to create an individual WhatsApp group that includes all of your students. However, how do Kajabi claim to be an all-in-one online tool for learning without the fundamental feature of Group Chat which facilitates teaching?

In the end, Kajabi does not enable online course creators to manage their courses instead, it helps them use multiple tools, but still claims that it is an all-in-one platform. This is among the many factors we considered when designing Scenes which is a complete community platform for course creators as well as coaches. We looked at a variety of 'all-in-one course hosting tools, such as Kajabi and built everything they could offer and everything else they didn't have into one platform.

At Scenes we are course creators and creators makers and know the challenges experienced by professionals like us. Therefore, we created an online platform that is up to date with the latest trends in learning. Let me present an overview of the features of Kajabi and Scenes and you will be able to take a fair view of it.
