You’ve made the decision to share your knowledge by creating an online course, maybe you’re hoping to make money, maybe just passive income, or maybe just a bit of change in the world.  

Whatever your reason, the next question is where to start creating your course? 

As someone who works in the industry of course creation, one of the most commonly asked questions is, what’s the difference between Teachable and Udemy or WordPress and which one is better for creating a course. 

To answer these questions (and make your research and decision-making process easier), I designed the infographic below that outlines how Teachable compares to Udemy and WordPress by looking into four aspects: pricing, e-learning platform features, marketing and exclusivity.  

You’ve made the decision to share your knowledge by creating an online course, maybe you’re hoping to make money, maybe just passive income, or maybe just a bit of change in the world. Whatever your reason, the next question is where to start creating your course? Teachable is the answer.

Alternatively, Udemy is an online course marketplace where you can also build your own course or even buy any course, on any topic, usually at a discounted rate. 

Most commonly, WordPress is a web software used for blogs or websites, but with hundreds of plugins, we’ve seen numerous people create online courses. I researched the top WordPress plugins (think Rainmaker, Sensei, Learndash, WP Courseware, etc.) used for online course creation and used their pros and cons in this comparison. 

Although I’m biased when reviewing Teachable, I genuinely want YOU to be aware of all the positives and negatives of using our product and our competitors, and to let me know what you think.
