#3 Product of the DaySeptember 02, 2017

Course List is a free listing of online courses that matches 3 simple requirements: at least 50 students, at least 1 month old, and available for purchase as a stand alone course (not as a subscription to a massive site containing lots of courses).

    The courses are vetted so you know there are actual students.


    Ability for students to leave reviews and for creators to see how many favorites a course has!

    I love this idea. As both someone who takes courses and someone who creates courses, I see this as a great way to build trust and authority behind a course.

  • Benjamin LovejoyCreative Person

    Super simple, curation by trusted sources (at least thus far).


    None that I know of.

    Go Paul & Zack!

Hey all, Paul Jarvis here. So a few days ago Zack and I were looking for a listing of online courses, for research for our Saas. We couldn't find one. Like, we really couldn't find one. So we built Course List. It took a day to plan, a day to design/code and then we launched. There's user accounts too, so folks can save their favourite courses or submit their own. Cheers, Paul

@pjrvs are you guys cool with free courses? I'm not charging for mine...

@pjrvs On this link( it says 'It’s 100% free and also let’s you submit courses you like as well.' Does that mean courses that I own or courses that I like? Because if it's courses that I like, then I'm not going to be able to submit stats such as the number of students that are taking the course, screenshots that show how many students are enrolled etc.

@matejlatin would love to see your course just for the fact you asked if it was ok to post a free course! And that's coming from a dutch guy 😁

@faisal_hassanx you're right, that could be clearer. thanks!

I love this idea!!!! I was thinking of something similar and I'm glad someone else made it! As a course creator, it would be interesting to think about reviews. Not all course platforms (cough, cough Teachable) don't have reviews built in. I collect on my own, but I think it'd be interesting to consider that in the future. Podcasts have the authority / discovery of the iTunes store, but not all course platforms also offer discovery! Also there are a ton of B💩 courses our there, so it's nice to see people trying to help the good ones shine!

@sarahdoody Agreed Sarah, and thanks! Reviews are definitely in the pipeline for this, if I was looking for a course, that's the first thing I'd do is try and find reviews.
