Announcing the Public Beta Launch of U

Ashley Pearson


Over 500 creators have been waiting for the release of our public beta, and we’re excited to finally announce the launch of the U platform in production! With this release comes a plethora of new and exciting features that will shake up how we learn and teach online. As we work to develop and expand our product offering over the coming months, we would love to hear your feedback as we enhance and improve the experience.

Bootcamps / Cohort-based Courses

Bootcamps allow you to group your classes into programs that can span from days to months. Our curriculum builder simplifies the process of creating and managing your classes in an easy to use tool. Create cohort-groups to offer your program across multiple sessions or times or an ongoing bootcamp with rolling dates.

Live Classes

Increase participation and student retention with the ability to host live classes and engage in real time with your participants. Use the chat to message and connect with your audience during the live session.   

On-Demand Streaming

Pre-record your content and give your participants the flexibility to access and learn at their convenience, while still enjoying the same benefits of a traditional live class experience like chat access and the ability to collaborate and reach out to fellow participants.  

Paid Classes

Teach, and earn on the only all-in-one platform to offer integrated payment support and lightning-fast checkout. Plus, U is the only platform that lets you keep 90% of what you earn!  

Messaging and Chat

Chat allows you to connect with your students on a new level. Communicate with your class, bootcamp, or cohort in a group chat and foster community discussions and collaboration. Additionally, our direct chat feature allows you to connect individually with students, fellow instructors, or assistants.  

Cloud Recordings

When you complete a live class, it will automatically be converted into an on-demand recording that will be accessible to your participants for whatever duration you specify from the settings.  


We are thrilled to share these features and future releases with you as we continue to build U to be the best all-in-one platform for creators and cohort-based courses. 

We look forward to your feedback on what you’d love to see added to U.
