Teachable Reviews

"Good platform as a user - May be right for your business"

It would be way, way, way too expensive for my personal taste to use for my own businesses. I always look for lifetime deal software and if that's not possible, I would definitely find something with a much lower monthly cost. In my case, I'd use WordPress with some plugin(s) to achieve the same type of functionality.

"Teachable for Digital Course Product Line"

Teachable has some setbacks. Although I mentioned that it's a one-stop-shop and has everything you need, I still wish there were more customization options for how the course material is structured. I am all about customer experience (for our students), and I don't think Teachable gives course creators enough options to display and present the material. I think it can often be confusing to navigate as a student, and the course layout can be bulky making information difficult to locate. So while Teachable is easy to navigate and set up from a course creator perspective, I'm not convinced that it's the best for a student.

“Teachable: Course Creators are Lost Without it!”

It's a smooth journey and you have everything you need in one place. Excellent UI and overall it's all you need. The overall coverage of all features a course creator needs. They even provide a payment gateway, which alone saves you plenty in commissions and monthly fees.
