You’ve heard of these two platforms in the world of online courses, but is Udemy better than Teachable? Let’s find out.

Udemy vs Teachable: The judgement criteria

  • check mark

    Can you build your brand?

    Udemy is a fixed marketplace where you can create and sell your courses. You don't need to make any effort to find your audience since you already have a large audience on Udemy. However, this could be a major downside to Udemy because you don't have many options for customization. This leads to fewer branding opportunities. However, you can personalize your courses with your landing pages and images, but that's the extent to what you can do in terms of customization.

    On the other hand, Teachable offers a page builder in which you can create a course landing page. Additionally, you can add a logo and choose your brand color. Unfortunately, there isn't much customization option available. With Teachable, you get a simple design and can easily create a professional website. But your courses might look like other courses on Teachable.

    What features will you get?

    Udemy offers quizzes so that your students can assess their progress. Moreover, you can provide downloadable lectures and supplemental resources like class exercises and worksheets. Udemy also has a mobile interface, so your students can easily view your content.

    With Teachable, you get a drag-and-drop page builder for creating your entire website. In addition, you can create discussion forums and messaging tools for your students to communicate with you and other students in the course. Moreover, Teachable offers coupons and promotions and advanced pricing options.

    Do you go live?

    Both Teachable and Udemy do not have the feature to go live. You'll have to create pre-recorded lectures or digital content for your students. So, you cannot conduct live Q&A sessions or webinars to encourage your student engagement. However, your students can access the course completion certificate at the end of the lecture.

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).
