Why LearnDash?

We love WordPress and LearnDash for the flexibility and openness of the platform, and that’s why we’ve invested very heavily in it. Businesses choose LearnDash over cloud and other LMS solutions for these reasons:

  • There are no per-seat costs. Whether it’s 10 learners or 10,000, costs don’t change.
  • Uncanny Owl can make your learning platform do whatever you want. Try us.
  • Learners get an intuitive experience that looks great.
  • You own everything. The data, the code—you control it. Try finding that with a cloud LMS.
  • Very low Total Cost of Ownership.
  • Portability and scalability.
