THE online platform for all of my courses and teaching resources

So far, I'm really satisfied with my experience with Gurucan. I finally have a platform I can use to house all of my courses, memberships, etc... and I've seen in the roadmap that there are more options coming – like the ability to sell eBooks and similar. The platform has a lot to offer and I'm sure that, with a few tweaks and addition, is going to become a name you'll be hearing over and over again in the LMS and online course platform space.

Pros

There are a few things I really like about Gurucan. Firstly, the fact that it enables you to create and sell a wide variety of products, such as courses, challenges and membership sites, as well as host webinars. I had been using different platforms to offer each of them, so it was great to be able to gather everything "under the same roof". Another thing that, in my opinion, make Gurucan stand out is its smartphone app. How cool does it feel to be able to offer access to a course, membership site, etc. through an actual app?? And you don't need to be a coding wizard in order to be able to use the app – or the Gurucan platform overall, for that matter! Speaking of hosting everything on one platform, many learning management systems and platforms give you the option to send emails to students...but set up actual automation that are triggered once certain parameters are met? Very useful! And since most people, nowadays, have a smartphone, Gurucan's chat feature will make sure that each message we want to send to students is seen and open (since you can send push notifications too).

Cons

Gurucan is a growing platform so I'm sure that these two points will be addressed soon. First, the fact that you need to create various elements – for example a course, an offer, a chat for the specific course and a landing page – separately. It would be great if Gurucan would enable you to just create an element, let's say a course, and choose to automatically create everything else (offer, chat, etc.) for it. The second point that I'm sure will be worked on quite soon is the limited course and landing page builder. I think that certain features, like the ability to add columns to a section, should be included.

Reasons for switching to Gurucan

I came across a deal on AppSumo and noticed that Gurucan was offering more features than the LMS I was using, and at a lower price-point.

What You Need Now & What You Will Need Tomorrow

It has been great from the beginning as support was there to answer question before I even purchased and has been there every step of the way when I've needed them since. I've had the pleasure of attending a Q&A and talking with [SENSITIVE CONTENT HIDDEN] and have gotten into detail with some of their future plans (available in their public roadmap). Right now this software is what I need to get going today but I can see the expansion and growth planned that will make it a powerful tool for tomorrow.

Pros

The software is one of the easiest to use in my opinion. It's very intuitive and I've already recommended it to some of our clients who have tried it and that's the same comment I get back..."It's so easy". When you're running a company and want to offer courses as one of your main goods, having to spend months creating content (especially if you do videos with editing) is already time consuming. Gurucan makes it easy to take all your pieces and make the final course you want to sell.

Cons

I wish there were more design aspects we could control and a more robust GUI. I'd love to see something similar to what GetResponse or Mailchimp offers. What would be the most amazing is to get a WordPress style editor like Elementor or Divi or anything similar so we could make amazing emails, completely customized landing pages and so much more.

Reasons for choosing Gurucan

The cost for having my own app was a fair value and the roadmap shows me that they're looking to create a robust amazing software that will do everything I need and more.

Reasons for switching to Gurucan

Foremost, I wanted a white label app. Hands down, the power of recognition and branding there I couldn't pass up. I also wanted a different option since ClickFunnels is currently increasing costs and as an agency, it's just not worth it when I can get my clients their own Gurucan for selling their courses. It also allows everything with the sales process to be in one roof. CRM, drip marketing, courses, teacher/student chats, etc.. Just was a much better solution that what we were using.

Very promising software

Pros

It is a very simple platform to use. It is well designed especially if you want to create a school or something more than a course. The function of the webinars is perhaps the reason that prompted me to purchase the product. It is a plus to be taken into consideration. The server is very fast and smooth, so far I haven't noticed any slowdowns. The app is well made and comfortable. It has the only flaw that courses cannot be purchased via the app. In the app you can only view the purchased courses. The extremely positive thing is that you can upload videos of several GB without problems and even longer than an hour. The rendering is slow, but then it flows smoother than on youtube. The assistance is truly excellent.

Cons

Let's go to the painful notes. You can have the white label site. But you don't have control over it. For example, company data cannot be added to the footer. They have created a very simple site suitable for anyone, but sadly there is no customization option. Even in forms and emails I would prefer more HTML controls. They still did a great job, but being able to change the footer and above all be able to use HTML more efficiently is something that would please me. It also has payment restrictions. You can use stripe or paypal. I solved it by creating a new page with details for other payment types. Unfortunately, I cannot write this message in the part where the user sees the payment form. They are not serious flaws, but if they improve in these areas it would be a perfect platform.

Reasons for switching to Gurucan

In wordpress I had to manage the website weekly. Now gurucan staff manage the website. I've only to add courses, manage emails and landing pages.

LOVE the wide space they gave to the content, more room for improvement

Good, very easy to set up. Just some room for improvement.

Pros

I love the wide space that is given to the content and the sidebar. It looks very good when you view it and gives complete focus to the content. It's very straightforward to set up.

Cons

This software holds a lot of promise, but the first thing I would love to see is scripts being allowed to be implemented. I'd love to insert in my own homework form, my own audio player, my own buttons, etc. I'm afraid I'm too picky for generic buttons or players, I want my course to look as seamless and beautiful as possible. The upload of the images seems to be a huge oversight, it expands across the whole page no matter what size it is initially, and I had to insert the HTML code of my images instead, hosted by my own site. The app isn't too useful for me, it's yet another app to download and I prefer that my clients just click a url and go. Additionally, the way the chapters and lessons are laid out could be better, I dislike the black overlay over the cover photos that is currently the unchangeable default, my course is colourful and I'd like to represent that in the cover photos.

Reasons for switching to Gurucan

Invanto is going downhill and they charged me twice where they shouldn't have charged. I needed to get out quickly and Gurucan does the job well.
