Thinkific Over-delivers for New Course Creators

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • User Interface Design for the Course Creator
  • Ability to Customize Branding
  • Intuitive Flow for the Student
  • When viewing your content as a student, it does not provide easy navigation back to the Creator Dashboard which is not necessarily the most intuitive navigation for the creator.
  • With the basic plan, you don't have the ability to allow students to have a monthly payment option for purchase. For this feature, you must upgrade. I think it should be part of the basic plan.
  • I'm not a fan of their affiliate interface. It is not very robust. I actually purchased this software originally because they included an affiliate dashboard within the system making it easier to convert students into affiliates, but I quickly realized that it was not robust enough for my needs.

Pros and Cons

  • It was straightforward to get everything set up and ready to go. Within a day, I had all of our payment processing systems, CRM, and WordPress website integrated.
  • It provides a great user experience for students. We have had little to no complaints about how to navigate their online courses and access their content.
  • I'd like to see their affiliate link functionality be a bit more robust and flexible. For example, we'd like to host the course landing/sales pages on our WordPress website, but to do that, we have to create a redirect in Thinkific. This makes for unique user experience if someone clicks our affiliate link - they're taken to one page and 10 seconds later redirected to another page.
  • Their quiz feature is tricky if you're trying to do something that is "self-assessment" based versus having right or wrong questions.

New Course Creators Ultimate Course Platform

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • Ability to customise your school to match your branding and to therefore link to your own company website
  • Ability to upload images, videos, presentations, PDFs and audio recordings as well as create quizzes to assess your students knowledge
  • Able to drip your course content for when it's ready to be released and not be pressurized to only publish a full course when it's ready
  • Integrate with third-party tools such as PayPal, MailChimp, Google analytics and Zapier to name a few
  • Promote individual courses on your website by embedding widgets
  • Although it has some great third-part integrations it would be great if it offered more such as links with email service providers such as MailerLite
  • Assignment feature to be available on the lower tier plans
  • Improve the file size uploads for images and videos
  • Provide a lot more themes

Pros and Cons

  • Ease of use: getting started with the software is really easy
  • The product team is world-class: they listen to feedback and regularly implement suggestions that we provide them.
  • Our students love the course experience
  • We also love how easy it is to integrate with our existing tech stack—Zapier, Active Campaign, etc.
  • Upsells are tough. We have to do lots of custom stuff.
  • The checkout process is also not very customizable.
  • A/B testing options are very limited. We have to do lots of work arounds to effectively test things.
