This post will serve as the resource for learning about all the awesome features Teachery has to offer. We will continue to update this post as we add new features to our course creation platform. No matter which pricing plan you choose, your Teachery account will include all the features listed below!
Tip: If you are looking for a specific feature, we recommend pressing cmd + F (Mac) or ctrl + F (PC) and typing in a keyword.
Unlimited Courses, Lessons, and Students
If you want to create 1,000 online courses and rack up 10,000,000 students, we’re here to support that dream! You will never get charged or limited by the amount of courses you create. Go nuts!
Within a Teachery course you can have as many lessons as your heart desires. Want lessons within lessons? We can make that inception magic happen!
You can also duplicate an existing course in Teachery with the click of one button. It will copy over all lessons, course content, and course styles.
Simple Live Course Editor
If you can compose an email, you can create a course in Teachery. Our live editor updates on-the-go, so you’ll never have to save or worry about losing your precious course content. Every piece of text is editable in our course editor, so feel free to translate your course into any language your heart desires.
Our courses are built with the default template you see below as well as our new Minimal Theme.
Embed Video, Audio, Images, and Slide Presentations
We do not host your course video, audio, etc, hostage. This is done on purpose. It helps us keep our costs down and it lets you store your files with services that do file storage extremely well. Teachery supports embedding content via a myriad of services, but here are the ones we recommend:
Video – Wistia (paid), YouTube (free), Vimeo (free or paid)
Audio – Soundcloud (free or paid)
Images – Google Drive or Dropbox (pick your favorite here!)
Slide Presentations – Slideshare (free)
You can also read our help documentation on adding videos, adding audio, and adding presentations.
Course Style Editor
We’ve tried to give you complete control of how your online course can look. From the hover states of your buttons, background colors, sub-lesson colors, and even the lines in the quick jump section of the course. You can customize it all to look and feel exactly like your brand should look. This includes your course, lessons, payment pages, and sales pages.
If you don’t have an existing brand or style/color guide for your course, we highly recommend using Coolors.co to find color styles that look great. You can also watch our walk-through video about course styling.
Here are a couple existing courses on Teachery and our two templates:
Payment Pages, Recurring Payments (Payment Plans), and Promo Codes
We integrate directly with Stripe so you can quickly and easily sell your online courses. You can customize your payments pages and create as many payment pages as you like. You can create payment plans or monthly/yearly recurring payments with ease. If you want to sell free courses, our payment pages become very simple on-boarding pages for your course(s).
If you sell your course outside of Teachery, we have a feature that allows you to manually add students to your courses as well.
You can also create promo codes for your courses. Give a specific percentage or amount off of your course’s full price, and set how long a promo code will be active and how many people can redeem your courses.
Here are a couple existing payment pages on Teachery (click the image to see the full page):
Sales Pages, Landing Pages, and Email Capture Pages
Our sales/landing/email page creator makes it incredibly easy to promote your online course. If you have existing payment pages, you can add them to your sales page and let people purchase right from there. If you aren’t ready to sell your course but want to collect email addresses, you can do that too!
Read more about our sales/landing pages here.
Email Integration with MailChimp and ConvertKit
We offer the ability to integrate directly with your MailChimp or ConvertKit email marketing account. Whether you want to collect the emails of people who purchase your course or you just want to collect emails on a sales/landing page, we make this easy for you.

Also, if you use other email marketing providers, don’t worry we also feature…
Easy Customer Exporting
If you don’t use MailChimp or ConvertKit, you can manually export your course customers via a simple CSV file. Also, if you create a sales/landing page and want to capture emails, those emails are stored for you in Teachery and can quickly be exported as well and imported into the email marketing provider of your choice.
Here’s what the full customer activity dashboard looks like for students who’ve purchased or signed up for your course(s):
We understand that you may not want your course to live on your-awesome-course.teachery.co as a domain name. Which is why we offer the ability to house your course on whatever custom domain you like. You can see a custom domain in action here (that’s a Teachery Landing Page set as the default page of a Teachery course).
Custom domains can get a little tricky and we wish there was an easier way to set them up. We have a helpful video about this feature that you can watch here. We highly recommend the use of subdomains with your online course, as it’s much easier to change the DNS records for course.yourdomain.com as opposed to just yourdomain.com.
Custom Course Homepage
Slightly different from the custom domains and custom sales/landing pages. If you’ve designed your own fancy homepage for your online course and want Teachery to use it, this is the tool for you. Essentially you plug your custom homepage (that you’ve designed somewhere) into this feature and Teachery will grab all the code, images, etc, and then apply it to your course.
Tracking Code and Analytics
Comments and Community
Fostering a community with your students can be important. We integrate directly with Disqus for commenting and in-course community interaction. You can learn more about our integration with Disqus here.
Course Lesson Scheduling (aka Drip Content)
Want the ability to let someone buy your course, but then drip your lessons out to your students based on a schedule you decide? This feature makes that happen! You can set lessons to unlock in day increments and you can update those increments at any time. You can read more about lesson drip content here.
Welcome Emails and Course Completed Emails
If you want to quickly and easily send the students that buy your courses a welcome email, we’ve got you taken care of. This email is customizable and includes a student’s purchase and login information.
Inside your course there are “Completed” buttons at the bottom of each course lesson. If your student goes through all your course lessons, hitting the completed button on each one, there is a Course Completed email you can customize to congratulate them on their success! We highly recommend including your favorite success GIF in that email. This is our current favorite:
Fantastic Customer Support
Within every page of Teachery you’ll see a “?” icon in the bottom right hand corner. We monitor this support system 7 days a week and do our best to reply as quickly as humanly possible. We do not offer 24-hour customer support, so if you’re working in the wee-hours of the night, we may not get back to you right away.
We’re here to help you setup your course, market your course, sell your course, and even brainstorm the content in your course. Don’t hesitate to reach out to us!
