Pros/Cons

  • Pros

  • LOVE IT. Easy to use and the app is very convenient when you are on the go and need to finish an assignment.

  • This product is so amazing! I use it everyday to create things for school! So easy to use and appealing to the eye!

  • Cons

  • Navigation and initial setup of the individual teacher classrooms can be confusing. It also can be confusing for the students, but once they get it, it's great.

  • While Canvas has been a wonderful software to use, the only issue I faced was the adjustment to the new software and user interface.

  • Pros

  • Very easy to use and has excellent customer support

  • Versatile, well organized, easy to learn. Free until you get going.

  • Cons

  • There are no big cons with Thinkific. That said, the progress bar has been confusing for some of our students. Replaying courses can be slightly confusing for them too.

  • I don't really have any complaints. It would be nice if the WYSIWYG editor were as good as Apple Pages, and turned out prettier text layouts in the templates. But, it's good enough.
