Which is the Best Online Course Platform

If you have knowledge, you can turn it into an Online Course

…but which is the Best Online Course Platform to create your course in?

I was faced with this question when one of my clients had come across a European Online Course Platform and wanted to know if that was the platform to use for a project he’s working on.

My interest was sparked and I wanted to know more about this online course platform called: Learnifier

Really, really nice and helpful people who made time to talk to me several times via zoom and showed and explained the platform and it’s functions.

Do I need convincing?

Yes, my favourite platform is and has been since 2010, TPNI Engage. TPNI Engage is a Complete, All in One Marketing Platform which integrates Online Course Creation Options.

So here I did a short Video comparing the two Online Course Platforms, Learnifier and TPNI Engage – Watch it and then read on for the feature comparison below

In essence, it is a very individual decision

Companies currently subscribed to Learnifier seem to use the platform predominantly for onboarding of staff, ongoing staff training and generally NOT for sale courses.
