Exactly What I Needed to Teach Online!
I’m a music teacher that is starting to teach online courses. I hope that I will eventually be able to do this full-time.
utobo was exactly what I was looking for!
I tried using the utobo lifetime deal and was hooked! The set-up was really simple.
I couldn’t believe how easy it was to set up my email lists, my classes, and my calendar.
I was even able to use different Zoom links so I didn’t have students logging on when I was teaching other classes (they tend to do that).
I was surprised that I could even add other teachers. This is great because I teach voice lessons and I have a friend who teaches piano who is thinking of doing this with me.
The email tool was very useful. I can easily group students from each class together. They also have it set up where I can also choose to not send emails to students who haven’t paid. This is something that would have taken so much work for me to keep track of and I don’t have to worry about it!
I was happy that I could plug in things that I had already done on other platforms.
I had already made a bunch of YouTube videos and I was able to use them in my classes on Utobo. When I set up my courses, I had the choice of adding a video, a pdf, an audio file, or a powerpoint file to the modules in my classes.
This was just really easy to put together. I know a bit about computers, but I’m not really tech-savvy. I was able to set up my classes without a problem.
The set-up had me do everything step-by-step, so I had no issues learning how to do everything.
There are so many good things about this service, but a few things I didn’t like. Here’s a list of my pros and cons:
- The setup was step-by-step
- Can use different Zoom accounts
- Can add different teachers
- Keeps track of who has paid for my courses
- Money is transferred to my account without added fees
- Email tool is amazing
- I can create my own courses online or do video ones
- I can sell my course either as the whole course or I can sell it by the module
- There’s a choice between offering free or paid classes
- There’s a neat calendar feature
- It takes a while to set up
- No community feature
- A small fee when ‘email campaigns’ are sent
The best part is that once I set up the online courses, people can just take them. Of course, there’s stuff I’ll need to do, but it’s a whole lot less work than teaching in an actual classroom.
It’s great that I could teach a whole lot more students at a time! This is just so useful and is worth the price! I’m definitely recommending it to anyone wanting to teach courses online!
