Witness is a social proof application for Teachable school owners to show off their enrollments, purchases and other (coming soon) events that happen on their Teachable school.
It started off as a way for me to learn backend web development and provide a way for me to test the theory that I could create something that works similar to useproof.com but keeping costs down for school owners that may just be starting out.
This was back in 2019. I toyed with the concept for several months trying out web technologies such as Nodejs and even PHP but eventually settling on the nodejs framework and a database based on Mongodb. There’s much more to it than that, of course, but this isn’t a technology blog post, it’s just about the Witness application.
So, I now have an Alpha build deployed and ready for members to sign up. There is only one basic plan right now at only €9/month (per school which is per email at the moment). For this, you’ll get a pop-up ‘toast’ generated for purchases of your courses for each new visitor to your Teachable school. This works on Teachable domains as well as your own custom domains. There are plans to create a nice easy to use plug-in for WordPress for those of you who host your main site on WordPress but use Teachable for your courses.
