What's the best video hosting site? Wistia? Vimeo? Loom?

I am having a problem using Bunny.net's video streaming capabilities. In order to use my content on my website, I have to disable Direct Play. Then what you would do is convert the HLS url into an MP4 url. Problem is when I do that I can't use my videos with the MP4 conversion (unless I turn Direct Play back on). Doing this disables the videos on my website, which is definitely causing a headache. Would it be possible to allow/enable mp4 urls?

I’m brand new to Skool. Joined last week and created my first group. I have around 15 clients getting great results and they all love skool ready to scale up to 75+ before 2023

Would it be possible to add a only members of certain level & only some members have access to specific categories in the community section? This allows the classroom membership only feature much more exclusive and drive members to engage just to get more access or pay for the upgrade (or separate course).

The new Skool innovation of being able to name the levels opens the possibility for naming important distinctions for your worlds. The leaderboard shows whether you are in the game or not. I wonder what level naming schemes would be fantastic. Here are some ideas: a) Species name of some kind showing the evolution and higher up! (fun). Smaller size plant to the larger tree. b) Martial arts belt levels (I default to that.) Example: Lean tradition. c) Some sort of humorous or serious corporate hierarchy titles, or magic world titles (level 9 would be the great grand wizard of oz or something like that. d) Tribal ranks e) Military ranks f) Space ranks (like naming levels after moons, planets, stars and galaxies? g) Star Trek ranks (Ensign... captain) Could these levels and distinctions correspond to assuming a participant's skill level in what you are teaching? Likely not. So these distinctions could be some fun way to reward participation. How are you naming or thinking about naming your levels?

Feature request - It would be great if we could add links to the top navigation menu (community, classroom, calendar, leaderboards). I have an affiliate program and would love to be able to put it as a main link at the top so it can easily be viewed and accessed by members anytime.

Sometimes people will make extremely valuable posts and I'll want to save them somewhere for future reference, similar to the "Collections" tab on Facebook. I would love to see this feature come to Skool!

Here is a cool workaround to control which members of your group have access to certain events on the Calendar. If you have a group with different levels of membership, this could suffice for restricting access to certain events (free vs paid). I hope this helpful. Let me know what you think! :)

Go to https://www.skool.com/YOURLINK 3. Tap Share (the square with an arrow pointing out of it) 4. Tap Add to Home Screen (If you don't see it, tap Edit Actions) Option 2: 1. Open Shortcuts 2. Tap + 3. Tap + Add Action and search Safari/Chrome 4. Select Open URLs in Safari/Chrome 5. Tap URL and insert https://www.skool.com/YOURLINK 6.

Do you offer leaderboard incentives? If so, what are they? I'm thinking of offering: - 1-1 Coaching Call (Top Level) - Case Study Bonus (Show students a live example of what's working now in our field) I'd thought of sending merch (hats, tshirts etc) but I don't think it really adds value to students lives' Let me know if you've come up with anything good!

Just joined up to Skool! Excited to have everything in one place. Sam has always said get market feedback and listen for what ideal clients really want. He listened and created Skool. Super grateful. Thanks @Sam Ovens excited to get my teeth into it. Planning on transferring my whole programme over by Sunday… wish me luck 😂

I was replying to a comment in WeTube... and I put so much effort into it, I thought I would post it here in Skool and expand on it. For context... I have two Skool groups and will likely have a 3rd before the end of the year. So - I like the product. It's unique. But - I think it would be more helpful for LEARNING if we IMPROVED the Newsfeed. I think that a "Newsfeed" style of community isn't nearly as effective as a "forum" style. Just hear me out... and DEFINITELY read the case study below. It's eye opening. FORUMS Forums allow for massive sub-categorization of topics. You can go into a sub-forum (like "sales" or "launches" or "Course creation") and just go through pages and pages of threads on that topic... and very quickly scan titles and find threads that are useful. This can be done so easily and quickly. Great threads keep coming to the top of that SUB-CATEGORY in the forum, as people continue to add to it days, weeks, or even YEARS later. Forums also tend to be more compact... you can see more threads on a screen in a shorter amount of time. It's more efficient. The DESIGN of the forum encourages better thread titles. NEWSFEED Whereas Newfeed style... There's a massive and lopsided RECENCY bias. Great threads get buried... and - honestly - great threads never even get CREATED because people know that it's going to get lost within a few days. Why bother? Why take the time to contribute something meaningful when there's NO GUARANTEE that it will be found by the search function? What if someone doesn't type in a phrase that would bring that to the top? The "Newsfeed" was a massive step backwards for digital learning. Another way that Facebook and Twitter screwed us. Obviously, I know the Feed is a core function of Skool... but if there was a way to SOLVE this problem, then you could have the best of both worlds. (I'll get to that below). Also - I know that Skool has a FILTER function... but the lack of more robust categories means that a lot of posts get jumbled together in giant "catch-all" categories. And - it encourages frothy, more "social" type posts than posts where people go deep. (also more on that in the case study)

Would it be useful to anyone else to be able to see how many people have viewed a post? Having a "seen by" or total view analytics would be helpful to understand how many members are seeing certain posts. Thanks!

I’m brand new to Skool. Joined yesterday and created my first group. I finished the Skool 101 tutorial, it appears that there are 3-other courses: Skool Secrets Skool Inner Circle Skool HQ I’ve searched for them but not seeing them. I’ll go watch the latest Office Hours recording, perhaps it’s explained in there? If anyone knows, let me know. Thank you. Peace

I have been listening to @Sam Ovens stuff on and off over the years and have been so pleased to have been recently re-introduced - Especially to Skool.. Loving the simplicity and ease of use. It seems there is also a great brains trust sharing to make it an ever improving experience.. Looking forward to getting stuck in..👍

Hello everyone - just one question around courses. If you have courses that on other platforms are downloadable after they have been paid for, is there a way of putting the courses you upload onto Skool behind a payment wall, or are they open access to all that are added to the site as members of my community?

@Sam Ovens in the future when Skool is massively successful, are you going to have ads in groups? And if you do, will you allow us to disable ads in groups?

I've found that it's easy to get people to engage in the group when they first join (introduce themself, etc.). Do you think lowering the resistance for level 2 could be a good idea? E.g. When they first comment or post it gives them a celebration-type pop-up saying they leveled up and tells them the reward they get (if there is one). I feel like this could help to give them immediate positive reinforcement and encourage future engagement.

When I buy a new program they have like a tutorial that explains what all the buttons do and i can click next after it showcases what the functionality does. It's not a video I watch, its arrows that pop up and point to things and explain them. And a checklist for new members to complete and get points.

Just hit 100 members - party time! 🥳 Thought it'd be helpful to share with you 10 lessons I've learned along the way (and wish I knew earlier) so you can grow your Skool community more effectively & keep your members happy to lessen churn. I've also included 4 things I "hate" about Skool, AKA 'Wishlist Features' that I feel would make Skool even better. This is a big milestone for me and I'm so stoked to have made my 'clear & definite aim' a reality! Next target: 1,000 members. Enjoy the lessons, and big thanks to @Sam Ovens for all of his YouTube mentorship over the years. Ted P.S. I'd love to hear what you've learned since using Skool... If you have any tips/strategies for: • Growing your Skool group faster • Keeping your Skool members happy • Using Skool more effectively as an admin/moderator/teacher Please comment below with what they are :) You rock.

After watching all of skool 101, I have a question about live events. Can a live event happen on skool? Or do we have to post a link in the calendar for a zoom event?
