Add a Webinar or Live Video Stream

NOTE: Third-party customization exists outside the realm of customer care and what we can support. This means that we cannot assist with the maintenance, or troubleshooting of custom code. Moreover, with any change made via custom code, we cannot ensure its functionality or full compatibility with current or future versions of Teachable. This includes how the code functions as well as how it impacts the appearance on mobile and web browsers.

This article goes over adding a livestream or webinar to your course lectures as a way to interact live with students.


A livestream or webinar is a great way to directly engage your audience, give and receive real-time feedback, and provide a unique learning experience.
Teachable does not have a native way to add livestreams. However, you can embed a third-party livestream directly into your lecture area, for example:

You can use any live streaming platform that allows you to embed a code snippet of the broadcast. To find an embed code for the live streaming platform you use, contact their support teams directly.
