Hacking your habits. Managing your time. Hustle. Do more. Do less. Sometimes the messages you receive as an entrepreneur can be downright contradictory. It’s no wonder, since different things work for different people. The same is true for the tech and apps we use daily, whether we are talking about managing our finances or creating a new website.

Well, fret not, we’ve got your back with this handy list of great tech that can really help you with your daily tasks when creating an online course.

Some of them come in handy when you are marketing your courses, creating a landing page, researching for content, and more. Others help you manage your tasks and time in a more efficient manner so there is something for everyone on the list.

11 tools for upgrading your e-learning game as an entrepreneur

Entrepreneurs need to find the right tools to create the best online courses. Have a look at the following apps and upgrade your e-learning game:

  1. Feedly

    Feedly is a popular news aggregator that you can use on any device. With its minimalist interface and personalization options, this tool helps entrepreneurs keep up with news and content that is highly relevant to them. Bonus point: it has a free version.

  2. YNAB

    You really do need a budget. As an entrepreneur, you will have to manage your finances wisely and know exactly how much you invest in your courses versus how much you earn. YNAB helps you track expenses, set financial goals, see budgeting reports so you will have enough resources to make it all worth your while.

  3. Airtable

    The free plan has all the essential features you need to get started. Airtable is a great project management tool for organizing tasks. Most importantly, course creators can use it to plan and organize courses, from start to finish.

  4. Visme

    Online entrepreneurs can make the most out of Visme by creating an ebook that they can sell as a standalone item, as part of a course bundle, or simply offer it as a bonus for learners. Visme is also a good choice for creating presentations, infographics, and even documents.

  5. Wix

    Wix is a good option if you need a professional looking website. You don’t have to be an expert web designer as there are many templates to choose from, a flexible design system, animations, and even an app market. Plus, it has a free plan that is pretty comprehensive to begin with.

  6. Toggl

    Do you know how much time you spent creating a module or answering emails? Toggl tracks the time you spend working on your projects so you can eliminate distractions and prioritize what is truly important. It works on all of your devices and all time entries are synced between them.

  7. Grammarly

    Nobody likes going through their already published course and finding misspelled words. Grammarly was created to help you avoid this situation and improve the quality of your writing. It functions as a grammar checking, spell checking, and anti-plagiarism software. As a bonus, you can use it as a browser extension.

  8. Canva

    Canva is a graphic design tool that allows you to create your own visuals for courses, website or landing pages. It’s easy to use and you can choose from many templates and stock images that are available within their system as well as edit their own images.

  9. Hitfilm Express

    This free video editor offers great features for entrepreneurs that need to create tutorials for courses. You can even create green screen effects or add filters and layers, depending on what you want the final videos to look like.

  10. Buffer
