Teachable Schools

Your Teachable school is the main website on which your products are hosted. You can customize your school however you want, but usually, you'll have the following pages:

  • Homepage - You can customize this page with our page editor to include information such as your your school name, heading, and description, and a list of your school's featured courses.
  • Privacy Policy/Terms of Use - Teachable has default versions of these, but you can customize them to your liking. Links to these are found in the footer area.
  • Product Directory - This is the "All Courses" page, available in your top navigation bar. On this page, users will see a list of all your visible products. (These can be sorted by Author and Category.)
  • Custom Pages - If you want to make other school-related pages (like an About page), the Teachable interface makes it easy to do that. 

Here's an example of what your school's homepage can look like:


NOTE: You can create as many schools as you want, but each school has its own plan and is paid for separately.

Teachable Courses

Courses are the actual packages of content that students will purchase. They can include video lectures, audio files, downloadable PDFs, forms, quizzes, and more. You can sell courses individually or group them together in bundles

NOTE: You can create an unlimited amount of courses in your school. 

Courses all have their own unique sales pages, where students can read all about that specific course and enroll in it:
