An online course is a course that can be used to teach someone new skills or information using digital technology. They are usually delivered entirely online, either free of charge or for a fee.
Create free educational resources and courses for self-learners around the world. Add engaging activities for learners to improve their learning, such as video, audio, forums, peer review workshops, and quizzes. Learners can earn digital badges to demonstrate their achievements.
Thinkific is the perfect platform for online course creators looking for a cost-effective solution to easily create, market, and sell their content.
The best part is that you can create and sell your first course for free.
The free version is perfect for unbranded online course creators because it offers a range of layout suggestions and fonts that you can play with.
But don’t worry, if you’ve already invested in a brand identity (logo, brand colors, fonts, and textures), you can easily merge it all with Canva for Work.
Now that you’ve got an idea of the cost-effective tools you can use to create your online course, it’s time to bring it all together.
Zapier is an app that lets you connect different apps and create an automation.
Not only is Zapier already linked to Thinkific, MailChimp, and Zoom, but it also recommends Popular Zaps depending on which tools you use. For example, you might want to create a “zap” that subscribes new Thinkific students to Mailchimp.
This makes creating online courses so much easier than self-hosting or course marketplaces.
