Troubleshooting and Common Questions

Why don't I see a course?

A: If the school is visible in your myTeachable dashboard, it should be visible in the app, but remember, you cannot access courses from schools that do not have myTeachable enabled. Another reason may be that you did not enroll in in the course itself. Make sure you enrolled in the specific course, not just the overall school.

Why can't I register?

A: You cannot register for courses right now from the iOS app.

Why can't I see comments?

A: These features are coming soon on the iOS app. For now, you can only view text, PDFs, images, and videos, and take quizzes.

How can I adjust the video playback speed?

A: Inside Settings, under Playback Speed.

How can I log in to another account?

A: To log in to another account, visit Settings in the app. Click Sign Out. Then log back in with your other account.
