The Best Teachable Alternative in 2022
The global e-learning market was worth USD 215 billion in 2021 and it is estimated to reach an expected value of USD 645 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 13% during the forecast period(2022–2030). With the emergence of advanced technologies and new standards being set, there are tons of tools and sites for educators/coaches/trainers to deliver their content.
Teachable is one such platform that helps you build and launch your courses online in no time, that too without any coding knowledge. Teachable handles everything for you, from web hosting to payment processing. Given its simplicity, Teachable might be a great platform to get started, but it is limited in terms of what you can do with it. It offers limited delivery and customisation options for creators. It works best for asynchronous, old-school learning. Teachable also misses out on some key features such as communities, real-time group and private chat, a true site-builder and ability to sell different types of products.
There had to be a better way, so we built it - EzyCourse - your all-in-one, zero coding, course creator platform, the best alternative to Teachable. Where Teachable struggles, we surpass. With EzyCourse build a branded fully capable course platform for a tiny fraction of the cost up and running in just a matter of a few hours, and get paid for your courses and your time with our powerful communities, chat and other revenue boosting factors.
Features that make EzyCourse distinctively exclusive:
Powerful communities -
Never again miss Facebook! Also save yourselves from the distractions on Facebook. Creators on Teachable usually have to start a Facebook group, which is noisy and bothersome, or either continue without any community, which stops learners from collaborating. Communities turn out to add a lot to an online course. Communities are essential in the sense that they nurture healthy competition between fellow learners, keep them engaged via sharing stories, feelings, activities, learning inspirations, creating polls and helping them stay focused supporting each other throughout. EzyCourse offers creators the option to add communities along with courses to keep their audience lively, with this incredibly dynamic asset. EzyCourse communities have channels under them for a better separation of concern.
Group/Private chat -
Apart from communities, EzyCourse features real-time, one-to-one and group conversations, so that learners can chat directly or discuss and reply to their mates instantly. Creators can add these as upsells or stand alone products and multiply their revenue.
Sell physical products -
Teachable only allows sale of digital products, but EzyCourse comes up with support for physical products sale, as in if a creator wants to provide some branded stuff such as notepads or t-shirts, they can do that simply. EzyCourse also allows restricting sales to certain areas and adding all supported shipping details.
Complete dynamic membership site -
Teachable membership is just another hybrid course - one that could consist of many of the product options together, whereas EzyCourse leaves this totally on the creators. Creators have full control over what and what not they want to include in their membership, they simply need to drag and drop the products they want to include in a membership plan, choose if the memberships would be monthly or yearly, and they can set the pricing for different plans accordingly. EzyCourse gives you a true Netflix like membership experience.
Build your own branded native mobile apps -
Teachable misses out on a native mobile app experience. It’s been built well for the web and has a very light app, but it’s only available on iOS and not Android, leaving out 85% of global smartphone users which means that roughly 2.5 billion people will not be able to access your course from their devices. On top of this both course creators and learners find the iOS app glitchy. To ensure smooth, efficient, on-the-go learning EzyCourse rolls out support to branded native mobile apps on both the platforms - Android and iOS.
Magic checkout -
Teachable has been reported to have problems with storing payment details. EzyCourse brings to creators magic checkout to solve this issue and help creators get new leads and stay informed real-time on how people are responding to purchasing their content.
