Teachable has an Apple iOS app which is free to download and use. The app is for students and allows them to access and complete their courses and accompanying content.
- A Teachable app is available for Apple iOS devices only
- The Teachable app gives students accessible course material from a mobile device
- The Teachable app cannot be used for coaching or lecture comments
Is There a Teachable Mobile App?
There is a Teachable mobile app available. However, it is only for Apple iOS devices. There is currently no Teachable app for Android devices.
Who Is the Teachable Mobile App for?
The Teachable mobile app is for anyone who has purchased a Teachable course and wishes to access and complete course content from a mobile device or tablet.
While the Teachable app provides plenty of functionality for students, it is not intended for course creators. Therefore, it does not provide any features that allow you to manage your courses on the go.
Unfortunately, it is also not possible to access coaching products via the Teachable app. Customers who have purchased Teachable coaching products must still access these via a desktop device.
What Can the Teachable Mobile App Do?
The Teachable app gives students the freedom to access and work on their course materials wherever they choose.
Once a course has been purchased and the app downloaded, students will be able to see all the available course lessons and modules as well as track their progress that is synced across all devices.
Additionally, students can:
- View any uploaded video content.
- Listen to any uploaded audio content.
- View lesson text and images.
- View any attachments.
- Take course quizzes and view their results.
Another big advantage that provides extra value is that the app works offline. Although you need to be online initially to log into your school and access the course materials, once you’ve done that, you can then use the materials while offline.
That means your students can work on their courses no matter if they have internet access.
It’s also important to highlight what the Teachable app cannot do. We’ve already mentioned that coaching products are inaccessible.
Therefore, if you’ve purchased a product bundle that contains a coaching element, you won’t see this in the app. Only the course content portion of the bundle will be available.
Furthermore, lecture comments and accompanying images cannot be viewed or responded to via the app. This feature is only available on the desktop version.
How to Customize the Teachable App
Unfortunately, there isn’t a whole lot you can do to customize the Teachable app. You are unable to change the branding from Teachable’s to your own, and you cannot change the layout or theme.
The only thing you can do is ensure the thumbnail and background images for your course are optimized for the iOS app.
You can do this by logging in to your Teachable school, clicking on your course and selecting “Information.” Then, scroll down until you see “Branding.” Ensure the “iOS” tab is highlighted and upload the desired images.
