Hi! Founder of Teachable here. We launched Teachable (then called Fedora) in May 2014 on Product Hunt. At the time, we were Udemy course creators who wanted a way to sell courses on our own website. We wanted to control pricing, have ownership of our audience, sell higher priced product and much more. Well, five and a half years later, we now have 25,000+ paying creators using Teachable to do exactly that. Our creators will earn close to $300m on the platform.. but right now, all of that comes from creators driving their own traffic. The post-Udemy scars lasted long enough that we never once attempted to centralize the best courses despite a lot of requests from our audience. Discover is our first attempt to build the distribution network that WE would have wanted as creators. Unlike other platforms, on Discover creators have: 1 - Control over pricing 2 - Full ownership on the student (+ all subsequent LTV) 3 - Students consume content on creators Teachable website 4 - Other students do not get cross-sold It's not a core company focus for now, but a small fun side project we're all really passionate about. Feel free to ask me or the rest of the Discover launch team any questions!

I love that: + The list of courses looks carefully curated and categorized. + The founder, @ankurnagpal, is always pushing the boundaries and always does what's right for the users! What could be better here: - The desktop version of the site has a carousel that didn't work well with my Macbook Pro's screen size. Scrolling down to the right/left arrow buttons to scroll the panels of the carousel isn't a great experience because the panels are taller than what's fully visible when you also see the arrows on the screen. - There's no searching and sorting features, but this may be intentional to avoid the users trying to compare and contrast between the courses and also to reduce the competition between creators.

I recently stopped selling my course on Teachable and moved to another platform. Why? The Teachable team seem distracted. Ankur admitted it (https://medium.com/@ankurnagpal/...) but noting has changed. The BackOffice debacle was the final straw for me. Please stop playing with side projects, Ankur, and get back to building the features that course creators want. Have you fixed authentication? Built a community feature? Got mobile apps? Email marketing? Upgraded Zapier integration? Then why chase Udemy with Discover when you promised Teachable wouldn't be a marketplace.
