Top 3 Platforms for Selling Courses Online

Being skilled and knowledgable is pretty great. Not only do you get to enjoy the splendors of knowing whats going on, but people are also interested in learning from you. And if you are trying to monetize this knowledge, you just have to find the best way to create online courses. Fortunately, this list can do just that.

There are loads of platforms available for spreading knowledge around the world. But with many different features and purposes, finding the right one can be hard. Let’s take a look at the top three platforms for selling courses online, and compare the various features offered by each.



No matter what type of video content you wish to release, Uscreen is the ideal platform for you. Not all platforms offer subscription services, and unfortunately, that’s how you make money. Uscreen management has seen just how well other subscription-based platforms are doing, and have incorporated this into the services they offer. With a subscription service, you can track the minimum amount of money you are going to make each month, which helps when planning your budget.

Uscreen also has all of the features, including unlimited courses and videos, theme customization, six templates, drip content, advanced customizations, advanced analytics, and live streaming. Currently, there is no other video course platform that can match this feature library.



The next platform we are going to discuss is Skyprep. Unfortunately, this platform does not boast all the features and customizability of Uscreen.  However, it does let you post an unlimited amount of courses and videos, and you get advanced analytics so you can find out what you need to do in order to make even more money.

Comparatively, this is a really easy tool, making it ideal for those who don’t have a lot of experience with online courses. They offer eLearning software that will help you to create the best teaching materials and build tests, all within minutes. Starting up is free, so you have absolutely nothing to lose.



Finally, we are going to talk about Thinkific. This platform has a mix of features found in the previous two platforms. While it does have unlimited courses available and drip content, the amount of features is woefully low. Also, there is also no live streaming, which may be a deal breaker for some teachers, depending on the type of courses they plan to offer.

However, one of the best things about Thinkific is its ease of use. You can have your e-Learning website launched in just a matter of minutes, which walks you through the most basic steps of setting up an online course. You can build rich multimedia courses by using almost any type of content, and there is even a voice-over slide tool for audio narration for slide presentations. The key to deciding between the three is obviously experience level, and Thinkific is the best for new users.
