Tech Spotlight: Teachable

Teachable is a site for creating online courses aimed at teachers, authors, and other content creators that want to easily and beautifully monetize their content. The site works like a blog or learning management system, giving creators control over the display of their content and the ability to create course blogs, quizzes, discussion forums, and lessons. Though the platform operates outside of common online course discovery sites, the company offers support for teachers hoping to advertise and promote their courses more widely. The site provides all the tools to manage a course like a small business, with analytics, a payment platform, and support for multiple instructors.

FotorCreated

Teachable is a flexible platform that fills a very real gap in online course creation platforms by managing the business end of online teaching. The platform enables anyone with teaching chops to dip a sustainable toe into reaching a wider audience online.
