@rrhoover the landing page is unusable on an iPad. Which is a shame, it doesn't fill me with confidence about the care for usability and accessibility in the product.

@drcongo Hi Andy, sorry about that! We're about to deploy a few fixes for the issues you're experiencing on your iPad. I can assure you that the web app itself works great on the iPad, we just have more work to do on this announcement page. Thanks for chiming in!

@drcongo The landing page works fine for me on iPhone and iPad. Desktop experience is definitely the 💣.

Thanks for sharing, Matthew. Hello everyone, I’m one of the Cofounders and Lead Developer for Pathwright. Four years ago, before Udemy, Skillshare, MOOCs, or iTunesU existed, we launched Pathwright to enable anyone to teach and sell online courses under their own brand. Since then, online courses have become mainstream and our team has grown 3X, bootstrapping the whole way. Now we’re very excited to announce Pathwright 2. It’s a totally different approach to learning compared to traditional “Learner Management Systems” (LMS) or the newer category of course-authoring/commerce platforms. A few notable differences to check out in Pathwright 2: * It's all about the people: With Pathwright 2, our primary goal was to put people first on every screen. * More like an app than a website: Learning and teaching is an active process (like an app) not just a passive experience of consumption (like a website or shopping catalog). Pathwright 2 works more like an app and on any screen size. * Radar: As a teacher, you can literally see where everyone is in your learning path. * Community: We built discussion features designed specifically for learning and teaching, not just a tacked on forum or comment stream. * Environment: There’s something about a beautiful campus or library that creates a desire to learn in itself. Unfortunately most education software is boring and generic. Our goal with Pathwright 2 was to create a uniquely beautiful learning experience that also gives a unique sense of place and wonder to every learning experience. * Create projects, assessments, sell subscriptions, and so much more... I and my other cofounder (and evil twin) @paul_johnson are here to answer any of your questions! P.S. bonus points to whoever can find the easter eggs 😉
