Teachable is a great software tool for building online courses. I am interested in this because I think there are some topics that I have developed that might be suited to the online course format.
But more importantly you might find it valuable, too.
First, to keep your attention, let me say that there is a free version that does everything you will need. And second, the learning curve is tiny. As in a half hour.
Although Teachable is designed to create online courses, and you may have zero interest in doing that; you can repurpose Teachable for a lot of other things.
Things that you are already doing or want to do. Things that would benefit from a polished and professional experience. Since it is possible to track your progress, Teachable can be a 21st century checklist, too.
Brainstorming, here’s what I come up with...
Some of the benefits that I see are:
As with most efforts like this, I came upon two characteristics you should be aware of. Much more time is spent creating the content than creating the ‘course’.
Secondly, the first implementation doesn’t live up to expectations because ‘god is in the details’. You still have to design the experience.
Here is a link to my Teachable site and my first attempt. See what you think.
Don’t worry about having to log in, that is required just so you can return to the course again later. (You aren't signing up for anything.)
