Changing lives for course creators since 2012

WP Courseware was the FIRST ONLINE COURSE PLUGIN for WordPress. Since we launched in 2012, WP Courseware has been the foundation that countless course creators have relied on to TURN KNOWLEDGE INTO INCOME.

As a course builder, you’ll benefit from our THOUSANDS OF DEVELOPMENT HOURS. We’ve spent years perfecting WP Courseware by LISTENING TO FEEDBACK and ADDING FEATURES requested by course creators just like you.


Our online course success stories include Joseph Michael, who makes $40,000 a month teaching writers about a little-known piece of software.

And then there’s David Risley, who has taught more than 15,000 students how to blog their way to financial success.

Why WP Courseware?

There are three routes you can take to turn your course idea into a livable income.

1. Share the stage and hand over profits on someone else’s terms

There are marketplaces that collect as many online courses as possible, providing their course software “for free.” In return, the marketplace MAKES THE RULES and TAKES 50% OF COURSE SALES (or more).

Those marketplaces will also SPOTLIGHT YOUR COMPETITORS even when you are responsible for bringing a student to the marketplace.

It’s a trap. These marketplaces make it easy to sign up because they want to add new courses. However, the marketplaces DON’T CARE whether the customers you bring buy your course or someone else’s. The marketplace makes money either way.

To maximize their sales, the marketplaces will showcase the best-selling courses (generally the cheapest courses). That means your potential students will be encouraged to check out your better-selling competitors. It doesn’t matter if it was YOUR MARKETING DOLLARS that brought the student into the marketplace.

To get the marketplace to feature your course, you’ll have to enter a DEATH SPIRAL to the LOWEST PRICE.

Free hosting and software look great until you’re earning just $9.99 per sale to cover your hard work and marketing expenses ($4.99 after the marketplace takes its cut).

2. “Done for you” (as a tenant, not a landlord)

Hosted solutions make a seductive promise: everything “done for you.” They say your website is basically already set up. They say all you need to do is flick the switch. But that switch is a HEFTY MONTHLY FEE (that you start paying even before your course is launched).

And that monthly fee GOES UP if:

  • You want more features (e.g. the features you really need).
  • You want better terms (e.g. not waiting 30 days for your money).
  • You want to promote your own brand ( instead of theirs (

With a hosted solution, you’ll always be A TENANT, NOT A LANDLORD. You might be able to change the drapes, but the structure belongs to someone else.

The only way to have your own website is to...have your own website. That way, you’re not RESTRICTED BY RULES or worried that the RULES COULD CHANGE OVERNIGHT.

If you’re not the one making the rules, you’re farming someone else’s land on their terms. Hosted solutions make it easy for you to join and even easier for them to change the game any time — without needing any agreement from you.

3. MAKE THE RULES for your own classroom with WP Courseware

Why Caitlin Pyle said NO to earning $100,000 in four months — and what changed her mind.

When Caitlin Pyle started making serious money as a freelance proofreader, her husband Ben had a suggestion. Ben knew someone who’d made $100,000 in four months from an online course. Why didn’t Caitlin try doing the same?

Caitlin told Ben, “No way,” thinking someone like her could never make that much from an online course.

Fortunately, Ben wasn’t about to give up. While Caitlin kept taking on proofreading jobs, Ben mentioned someone else who’d made money from an online course. This time it was just $1,200.

Making $1,200 from an online course sounded more believable to Caitlin than $100,000. So she decided to give online education a go.

Caitlin bought a domain name (, set up a simple WordPress site, and installed WP Courseware.

The results came quick. Caitlin launched her first course on 16 February 2015. In the first week, she made $4,000, mostly from family and friends. But the money kept coming. Fast forward to just 79 days later, and Caitlin had banked $100,000.

That didn’t mean she was giving up proofreading, though. She still thought this might be a flash in the pan — that is, until she treated Ben to a week in New York...

“Ben and I went on vacation to New York,” says Caitlin. “So I told my clients I was going away, but they could send me work when I got back. Except in the week we were away, we made $18,000 from the course. That’s when I thought, hey, I’m retiring from proofreading!”

It took Caitlin just 15 months to hit $1 million in sales and just three years to pass $4 million in course sales. Today, Caitlin would have no trouble believing someone could make $100,000 in four months, not when her own business regularly brings in $200,000 a month — all while Caitlin works less than 10 hours a week.

How easy is

WP Courseware

to use?

WP Courseware WordPress LMS Course Builder Easy (1)

To run WP Courseware, you just need to plug WP Courseware into a WordPress website.

WordPress is free, which is one of a thousand reasons it’s the software of choice for 455,000,000 websites (that’s 35% of the internet).

WordPress is so simple, you can have a website running in less than 20 minutes, even if you never thought you could be a “web master.” Then all you have to do is add WP Courseware. A few clicks later, and you have everything you need to build and sell your course.

If you just want to teach, you can easily leave the technical stuff to someone else. Thanks to WordPress dominating the internet, there are hundreds of thousands of web developers who can help you (not to mention all your friends, family, and neighbors who are familiar with WordPress).

Once you’ve plugged in WP Courseware, you’ll find it’s simple to use. That simplicity isn’t an accident — we’ve thought through every detail from the point of view of the course creator.

Do you need to learn a little bit about running a website? Of course. But the same would be true if you ran your course through a marketplace or a hosted solution. They all have tools to learn, but WordPress has two big advantages over the alternatives:

WP Courseware WordPress LMS Course Builder One

WordPress sites are easy to manage even if you have never used a website before, and you can get someone to help you for a few dollars an hour instead of relying on chatbots or waiting for a support person.

WP Courseware WordPress LMS Course Builder Two

With your own WordPress site, you can implement any feature you can imagine. You won’t outgrow the limited capabilities of a hosted platform, where someone else determines what’s possible and what isn’t.
