What Kinds of Courses Can I Run on Mighty Networks?

You can run all kinds of courses on a Mighty Network! First of all, there’s no limit to the subjects covered in courses here—from financial freedom to yoga to empowerment and leadership training—thousands of creators and entrepreneurs have built incredible, profitable courses in their Mighty Networks. 

Then, in terms of how you can structure the courses you run here, you have a few options. 

You can build a content-only course, a cohort-based course, or a community course. 

Content-only courses means it's all about the course material itself, and there are no additional community features, such as an Activity Feed, chat, or events. They're great for when you want all the community action happening in your main Mighty Network, but have something you want your members to consume. An Onboarding course or Resource Library are two great use cases (we use a content-only course for our Free Resources Hub in Mighty Community)!

Cohort-based courses have a community element, but still keep the focus on the course material. The course material is the first thing a new member would see when joining one. Cohort-based courses also mean a group of people are moving through the course material together—kind of like when you’re in school! 

Finally, there's community courses. This is exclusive to Mighty Networks and is our most popular course option. It lands new members right on the Activity Feed of the community, with the course materials as a tab behind it:


Here's a close up of that left nav:


The Activity Feed is the "homepage" for the course. People land on the community first and see all the conversation, events, and Welcome or Featured sections. 

We run both our 21-Day Challenge and our Community Design™ Live courses as community courses. 

A community course is more likely to spark engagement and encourage members to contribute, move through the course, and share their results. Which, in turn, brings them back more often to meet each other and create more connections through your course. 

The other benefit of a community course is that it is much more forgiving, especially when you are launching a course for the first time. Why? Because the emphasis isn’t so much on your course content, but on the live events you're doing.
