Both Heights Platform and Kajabi are great tools for online course creators: they share all the most important features you need to create awesome online courses and digital products. However, you might choose one platform over the other depending on your specific needs and what kind of business you want to start.
Heights Platform is a great choice if you are looking to create engaging online courses that help students learn, while having the flexibility to build a powerful business by your own rules. Kajabi on the other hand focuses more on marketing aspects and allows creators to build their own sales funnels within the platform.
But let's have a closer look at the features that you need to look out for in your next online course platform:
Build Unlimited Courses and Digital Products
Heights Platform allows creators to build unlimited courses, membership sites, challenges and digital products in any pricing plan!
Having the ability to create unlimited products and not having to worry about reaching a limit is extremely important. If you are just starting out, you might be content with creating only one online course, that's ok! But as your business grows, you need to count on a platform that can fit your needs.
While Heights Platform has no limits on how many products you can create and sell, Kajabi only allows 3 products in the lower pricing tier. This might seem enough for you, however, keep in mind that by "product" Kajabi includes not only online courses, but communities, digital downloads and so on...
So if you plan on using Kajabi to sell one online course, offer a community aspect and have a couple of digital downloads for your students, you are already over the limit and have to upgrade to the next tier for $199/month.

Run Online Challenges to Promote Your Business
A feature that makes Heights Platform stand out from the competition is the ability to create and run online challenges.
Whether you know them by the name "challenges" or "cohort-based courses", they are a type of online course with a calendar start and end date.
Challenges are a fantastic way to increase engagement, keep your students accountable, and even upsell other products in your program. Since challenges are time-sensitive courses, students go through the content together and are more prone to interact with each other and be engaged with the content.
Set a release date and expiration date for each challenge lesson, activate comments, upsell other products, schedule automated emails with each lesson release and restart a completed challenge with the click of a button!
Foster Student Engagement with Projects
At Heights we deeply care about your students' engagement and their ability to learn, which is why we create Projects.
Unique to Heights Platform, projects can be set as part of an online course to further incentivize students to apply their newly acquired knowledge.
Projects are a way for students to really understand the value of your online course and translate their knowledge into practice while interacting with the creator and fellow learners.
The Cherry on Top: Gamification
If you care about your students enjoying your online course, Heights Platform can help with that!
Our built-in gamification features include giving out points to students when they complete a new lesson, automatically generating badges and rewards and measuring students' progress.
Gamification tools can make your online course not only valuable, but fun and engaging! Kajabi doesn't have built-in gamification features like the points and badges Heights offers, but provides detailed analytics about students' progression through your courses, similar to Heights' student analytics.
Creates courses about business growth
"I absolutely love how Heights has taken online courses as we know it and turned it into community.
And I love, speaking of community, that I have a vibrant membership community all in one place. I absolutely appreciate all the thoughts that Heights put into making their platform even better."
Heights is The Best Alternative to Kajabi

Heights Platform was built with the goal of offering all the tools to help your customers learn and gain value from your online course. We want to make it easy for you to create and sell online courses, without having to worry about learning complex marketing funnels.
