Looking to maybe switch my courses off @Teachable. A new platform would ideally have 5 things:

🔎 1) Text Search
Teachable doesn't have search. Students can only use their browser's search to search content of a single page.

Search should search across all course content.
🔎🎬 2) Video Search + Transcripts
Search should also search across the transcript of any uploaded videos.

Users should be able to download a video transcript and search within that transcript without downloading it.
✏️3) Text editor that isn't buggy
After observing a new team member trying to add a lesson to a course, it's clear the text editor has UX issues.

When I choose a color, it should make text that color. When I put a link in a text area, the text editor should make it a link.
⚙️ 4) Text editor similar to @NotionHQ or @ClickUp
As a course creator, I want to make my course content easier to scan & consume. The way the information is laid out on the page is crucial to learning, skimming, and scanning.

Can't achieve this with a basic text editor.
📈 5) Better reporting for admins
In Teachable, I can't see reports (lecture completion) for courses that are "bundled" ... most of my courses are bundled.

Hello to my new followers!

I'm a UX Researcher & Experience Designer. I've been running my own UX consulting biz since 2012.

Today, I'm the founder of Career Strategy Lab, a 6-month UX career coaching program that helps UX professionals land their dream roles.

In 2017 I accidentally got into UX career coaching when I created a workshop about UX portfolios and thought "after I teach this workshop, I'll never have to talk about portfolios again 😆"

But then, people started to get hired! And as they say, the rest is history!

The UX Researcher part of me realized I stumbled upon a problem, so I decided to go all-in 🎯

Today, my Career Strategy Lab helps UX professionals get hired without applying to hundreds of roles b/c that's a waste of time!

Our approach is different. Here's why ...

Emails I generally ignore:

- Can I pick your brain
- Would love to get your opinion on this
- Can I buy you lunch or coffee so I can ask you some things?
- I'd love your advice [insert a 2,000 word message here]

Here are a few tips ...
1) Be brief!!!

Read and re-read the email before you send it. Pretend you have to ask your question in the length of a tweet.
2) Ask a SPECIFIC question

When you ask if you can pick someone's brain or for advice it generally means you haven't spent enough time thinking about it YOURSELF.

If you can't articulate your question in a simple way, it'll be hard for anyone to give you the advice you want.
