  • As a startup school, it was hard at first. Even paying $49 a month makes it hard when you don't have students. They do have the Free tier, although it lacks quite a bit of stuff to actually make it work.
  • The free lessons should be controlled better. With this I mean that someone has to make an account in your platform to watch a free lesson, and it fills up the platform with unwanted traffic. I would not ask for an account to watch a lesson.
  • It's been great to not have to worry about students while they work through the lessons. The platform works so well by itself that it allows you time to do other things.

  • [In my experience] with no security, the platform is a NO GO for all except those who are fine with their content being pirated.
  • Unfortunately discovered the security issue after four months of site development.
  • Probably would be wise to check if this is an issue with other competing online course platforms as well.

  • Ability to attract leads with a FREE membership library option
  • Ability to quickly and easily deliver course content without much of a learning curve for course creators
  • If you need affiliates to help sell your product, even though they advertise that they have the option for affiliates, if you want to do it right you must use an additional integration for affiliate software.

  • It has helped us create professional and engaging courses without having to learn new skills with it's great drag and drop features
  • The investment in the site means that everything is done for us and integrates well with other online tools we're currently using
  • The only negative is that there isn't any guarantee (like most things) on making a return on investment if you pay for a plan with al singing and dancing features.
