What is the best tool/platform to use to make an online course?

This question is a part of my Free Q&A Series where I answer questions posed by entrepreneurs around the world on sites like Quora, Clarity, and various freelancing forums.

Congrats on preparing to launch your online course. From personal experience, I know that they are a fun and lucrative way to grow your business and your brand.

There are a few approaches to hosting your online course. There are options like Teachable and Thinkific – both are solid choices.

They are both on the easier-to-setup end of the spectrum. I recommend them for your MVP (Minimum Viable Product) to test your theory or prove your concept. The ease of use comes with a notable trade off: neither offer a tremendous amount of customization options.

I prefer WordPress-based LMS (Learning Management System) because of the power and flexibility of WordPress. Many work with ecommerce solutions like WooCommerce and can expand to accommodate your course as it grows. In this category, I recommend LearnDash or LifterLMS.

If you have specific questions about how to launch your course, how to vet your ideas before you commit to choosing a platform, or how to market it, contact me or set up a consulting call here on Clarity.

All the best,
