A more modern student experience

Imagine everything your students love about the Thinkific online course reader, but updated to look like it was designed in 2018. We don’t just say “we’re modern”...we actually are.

“I researched LOTS of platforms before selecting Podia. The other software I looked at was complex to use, ugly to look at, or required a large investment. Then I discovered Podia. I had my first course up and running within hours. And best of all, my customers LOVE the experience!”

Sally Miller

Author and business coach.

Amanda Boleyn

"I absolutely love Podia's user interface - it is extremely intuitive and easy to navigate as the creator. I also love that they keep their product simple, there are no hidden upcharges, only one flat investment each month and you can create as many courses or products as you want."
