Today Learnable one of the new breed of education startups from down under officially launched its platform with more than 60 courses ranging from Yoga to PHP.
In fact, the platform gave visitors access for one or two weeks already but as the team writes on the official Learnable blog, today is the day the doors are bolted in and the sign “open for business” hangs in the window.
I already had the chance for a talk with Leni Mayo, one of the co-founders of Learnable back in January and you can watch the entire interview over at EDUKWEST if you haven’t already.
One of the things that surprised me is the quality and consistency of the courses offered on Learnable. The short intro videos I watched were all of good quality, show casing the experience of the tutor, trainer, educator etc and giving a short overview on what I would purchase. Which brings me to the other pleasant surprise: the pricing. Courses on Learnable are roughly all around the $20 to $30 mark.
Another point I appreciate is that Learnable launched when their tutors were ready. All courses offered are complete whereas on other platforms in the same market you often find courses that are missing lectures because the creator has never finished it. This is a big advantage of Learnable I’d say as it adds credibility towards the customer who wants to know that for this price tag the course will deliver what the description reads.
I already covered the background of the Learnable founder team back in January, so I won’t go into the details again. Nevertheless I would like to stress once more that they have a tremendous experience in the online and education space through their other ventures, so it’s pretty save to assume that Learnable has the potential to become a successful solution in the online education space. The first steps point in that direction.
