LearnWorlds begins with you creating your school. It offers a Welcome Screen walkthrough to get you easily started.
Online Course Creation
- Coming Soon
If you choose paid, you will be prompted to set a starting price of your course. There is also an option to set a discounted price. A nice thing about LearnWorlds is that there are also links to reading recommendations on how to set pricing.
Like other online learning platforms, LearnWorlds allows you to schedule your courses (drip feed).
Course Page Builder
Once you have created your course, you will be brought to a default template course page. You can then customise the look and feel of the course landing page. The page builder has the following features:
- customisable layout, headers and footers
- options to configure your page so that it is optimised for search engines. A cool feature here is that you are provided with a live preview of what your course snippet would look like under Google results. This allows you to tweak the title to encourage clicks
- configure site navigation
Define and set access for different sections of your course
When adding course content to your LearnWorlds course, you first need to define sections in your course.You can set these sections as Draft, Soon (visible but not yet accessible), Free or Paid.
Once your sections are defined, you can add activities.
Each activity supports different content formats:
Select videos that you uploaded to your LearnWorld’s course library or embed videos from Vimeo / Wistia.
eBooks are similar to Word documents where you add paragraphs of text, table and images
- PDFs/Audio files

Upload content developed and exported into SCORM packages by online learning authoring tools like Storyline, Captivate and iSpring

Research of reviews online
I found the Reviews on TrustPilot to be acceptable. There were only 23 reviews and 87% of them were above great. Most people liked the features. For those who didn’t like it, it was mainly due to the interface, which after trying it out, I have to agree can be quite overwhelming for those who have little exposure or experience with creating web sites using site builders.
Is LearnWorlds the right solution for me to sell online courses?
Similar to other online course platforms, this is not for you if you:
- require reporting for SCORM, XAPI online learning content
- require gamification elements that you can customise (badges, points, leaderboards for interacting with your site)
If you need advanced interactivity in your courses, you will need to create those interactions with online learning authoring tools like Storyline, Captivate or iSpring and take up the Pro Trainer (upload up to 10 interactive packages) or the Learning Center plan (unlimited hosting of packages). As mentioned in the earlier points, you will not be able to receive any reports on how your students interact with these packages.
What do I like about LearnWorlds?
It provides a wide variety of learning content formats for its Pro Trainer plan price point. The site builder provides a wide range of customisable options. The course builder supports a wide variety of learning content formats. For example, you can add different types of quizzes. If all you require is the standard range of course formats, LearnWorlds definitely delivers.
