You bring the material.
We bring the tools.

Our video course platform provides all the tools you need to market and distribute your video course with ease.

Auto-Transcription and Chaptering
Good video content becomes great with accurate subtitles. That's why we auto-generate subtitles, searchable transcripts, and lesson chapters with human-level accuracy using the latest AI models. We support English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, and Dutch.
Web Traffic Analytics
Once you start advertising your video course, you'll want to know where you can best focus your marketing efforts. You'll want to know where your students found it, how likely they are to buy it depending on their origin, and if your marketing is actually working. We give you advanced web traffic analytics that help you answer to all these questions.
Lesson Comments
Maximise the learning outcome of your students through lesson comments. Comments allow students to ask you for help and your answers will improve the course for future students. You can also use them to alert students if something you explain in the lesson changed after you published the course.
Transparent Pricing
We hate hidden fees. You should get what you paid for and only pay what you chose for. No hidden fees. Unlike on other platforms, you'll know exactly how we calculate our fees. Learn more about our pricing.

Viewer Insights
Coming in Q3 2024
After a student buys your video course, how do you know they actually watched it? Did they watch all videos or just some? How far did they watch them? Where did they drop off? We provide answers to all these questions and more!

Creating whole video courses takes a lot of time, but creating individual videos does not. With Indie Courses, you can easily upload and sell individual videos too. This format is great for topics that are too small to be a course, but still interesting enough to talk about. For example: 'How do I set up library A?', 'How do I use product B?', 'What does the term C mean?'
