Build beautiful online courses in the same place you do everything else

A week from now, you could make your first online course sale. You could also have a website, an email list, and your own community. Over 150,000+ creators have used Podia as their online course platform, and you can get started for free.

Build Quickly and Easily

Podia handles the tricky parts, so building your course is easy

You can upload your videos straight to Podia. Make your sales pages in Podia. Take payments and offer payment plans in Podia. Podia takes care of all the little details so that you can focus on making a course your customers will love.

Online Course Types

What kinds of courses can I make?

Any kind you want! Create unlimited courses and add as many modules, lessons, videos, audio files, quizzes, embeds, and downloads as you like. We’ll even host your video content so you don’t need to connect (and pay for) extra tools.

  • Create your standalone or self-paced online courses in just a few clicks. You can add text, images, videos, audio files, MP3, links, PDF, PSD, quizzes, and more.

  • Set a future start date so that all of your students take your course at the same time, creating a sense of community and allowing for live interaction.

  • Deliver your course content to your students section-by-section following a schedule of your choosing.


You can build your entire online course for free

Set up a draft of your online course without spending a dime, and upgrade to launch your course when you’re ready. You’ll get your money fast with instant payouts, and you can remove all transaction fees when you sign up for a Shaker plan.

Native Video Hosting

Podia hosts all your course videos

Podia includes native video hosting for all your course content so you don’t have to pay extra for video storage. Upload your videos and Podia will handle the rest, no surprise limits or fees.

Built-in marketing tools

Make your course and grow your audience all under one roof

Podia gives you a customizable free website with unlimited landing pages. There’s also integrated email marketing so you can offer lead magnets, send newsletters, create campaigns, and automatically connect with followers.

Checkout Options

Sell your course as is, or bundle it with community, coaching, or other offers

You can also offer upsells, give course certificates, create coupons, limit the number of seats, or set access durations.

  • Package up similar courses as a bundle so students can get more value. You can also bundle courses with any other digital products you sell.

  • Take payments before you launch. Like a crowdfunding campaign for your course, pre-selling is the perfect way to validate your next course idea.

  • Test ideas and collect emails before launching your course, then email people who have already expressed interest when it’s available.

You’ll love how your course looks. So will your students.

Podia makes it easy to set up a clean, gorgeous online course in minutes, no coding skills needed. You can make everything yourself — and it’s actually hard to make something that doesn’t look amazing.

"I love Podia because it takes the annoyance out of building an online business. Rather than worrying about the website and logistics, I can focus on making the best courses possible. Their support is fantastic as well :)”

— Ali Abdaal,
Doctor and YouTuber
