The Range of Online Learning Platforms
Online learning platform solutions can be a confusing market
space to navigate as an online course instructor. Online course platforms range from “marketplaces”
such as Udemy, where anyone can create and sell an online course of virtually
any quality, to Coursera which partners only with educational institutions, to
Thinkific and other LMS platforms that allow instructors to create a
proprietary online course platform and market their online classes.
If you want to create and sell online courses in a so-called “marketplace” like Udemy, which makes selling online courses relatively easy, you may wonder what alternatives to Udemy exist. Given the brand recognition and market share Udemy boasts, it may be hard to figure out what other online course marketplaces exist and how they are different.
