  1. Thank you, Miguel, for this overview. My WORST CASE scenario for self-hosted courses (in my case Learndash on WordPress) is that some technical glitch (not seldom on WordPress) would disrupt the access to the course for my clients. And I would be accountable for that!
    Secondly, how to ensure people still can access their purchased courses in case you decide to discontinue the business or switch to other solutions? I think, this is the most vulnerable issue for self-hosting. What's your take on this?

  2. Great video!

    I am convinced with Thinkific. But I just have one query.

    Will I be able to set up quizzes and the course content in a different language? Say for instance hindi or tamil? Please do let me know.

  3. The arguments you propose are interesting although well known. On the other hand, there is a parameter that nobody ever takes into account: it is the specificity of the course with a balance between on one hand generalist courses, not very specialized with a large audience (and competition) and on the other hand hyper-specialized courses with a restricted audience. In my opinion, this is a major parameter to consider in this kind of comparison.
