Here are some things to consider for your CourseCraft alternative.
Drag and Drop Site Builder
Make your site look exactly how you want it, without hiring a designer or a developer. We’ve recently launched Site Builder, a total game changer. Real control and customizations, not just uploading your logo and adding brand colours. Drag and drop sections, add smart sections, choose from multiple themes, styles, and templates. It’s incredibly easy, and powerful. Ps. It’s included!
We’ve learned that what makes a difference in successful online courses is Student Experience and Engagement. We have lots of tools to help you do this with quizzes, exams, surveys, and discussions.
Grow your courses beyond just yourself. Add and manage multiple instructors from your online course platform. You can even manage revenue sharing including changing percentages, and how often to pay out.
Give students the incentives to share how well they did on your courses. They can be printed, posted on LinkedIn and more. This helps your course get more viral promotion, and makes your students proud.
Pour rocket fuel on your online courses by seamlessly integrating with the most requested third-party apps. From MailChimp, ConvertKit, AWeber, ActiveCampaign, to InfusionSoft, Segment, Mixpanel, and more.
While you may not need our Webhooks and API if you’re just getting started, you’ll quickly learn how powerful and helpful they are as soon as you need them. If you’re not familiar with the terms, Zapier is basically a bunch of Webhooks working together. They provide a way for developers to easily build apps that receive information in near real time from your Thinkific site.
Our API enables developers to interact with every part of your Thinkific site (with the right authentication of course) without waiting on events or going through the user interface. This allows for almost unlimited possibilities and customizations.
We strive for inbox zero every day, and support is our #1 selling point. Don’t believe me? Read our reviews.
