Skillshare vs Teachable
Is Skillshare Better than Teachable? (2023 updated)
You’ve heard of these two platforms in the world of online courses, but is Skillshare better than Teachable? Let’s find out.
Skillshare vs Teachable: The judgement criteria
Can you make data-driven decisions?
Skillshare collects personal details from your students (name, profile picture, login email address, location, gender), but does not retain any payment-related information, since these details are processed by either Paypal or Stripe. Though the gathered data can be shared with employees and businesses for information processing, course creators won’t have access to it.
Teachable is more open with their data sharing policies. It provides in-depth insights into how well your course is performing. The platform also allows you to track your students to understand how they interact in class and what their completion rates look like.
Can you create your OWN brand?
Each one of Skillshare’s 20,000 courses are templatized and must follow specific guidelines. Course creators are expected to upload pre-recorded lectures (ranging from 20-60 minutes) to the platform. These videos will then be shortened to bite-sized snippets of 2-5 minutes each. This doesn’t let you create unique content exclusive to you.
If you’re looking to build a brand, every single product you sell should have your stamp on it. With Teachable, you can personalize the theme of your course quite easily. There are four elements you can change, and these include:

How much will you spend?
On Skillshare, you don’t need to worry about upfront costs or sign up for a premium membership to create courses. All you have to do is provide some basic information (full name, email, and password), and you can begin creating classes on Skillshare for free.
Unlike Skillshare, Teachable has a more complex pricing system, so you’ll need a higher-tier subscription for all the functionalities. The platform offers four pricing plans:

Social Learning equals to more $$$
Lectures alone (be it pre-recorded or live) will lead to your students dropping off faster than you can imagine.
Lectures + Social Engagement is what will keep your students hooked. Scenes lets you add a college-like social experience to your online academy.
The result : 5x retention + 50% more likely to spend on other offerings by you.

The difference is in our DNA
We're content creators, teachers AND community builders.
And, we know how everything ties together to make a business.
We've been teaching online since 2018. We ran one of the world's largest educational communities from 2019-2021 and scaled to $500,000 revenue by selling cohort-based courses. We kept hopping from one software to another because the experience of actually using all available software is bad.
This led us to build Scenes - an all-in-one platform to run your courses, cohorts, webinars, events, voice chat rooms, etc. - on mobile & web (100% white-labeled).
Your branded online academy on any device.
