What is the Channacademy?
The Channacademy is a free online learning platform for all Channable users where you can learn all about our tool, Channable. As a user you can learn each feature by following the related courses which contain videos and assignments. You will learn by doing and you can learn at your own pace, stop at a certain lesson and continue where you left off. Currently, we offer our courses in English.
The Channacademy consists of 2 parts:
- Channacademy company
On academy.channable.com you will find the courses. You will use the Channacademy company in Channable to perform the assignments.
Why do I need a separate company?
It is important to use a different company since you want to keep your own company separate from the Channacademy assignments, and to work in a secure environment. Also, you will use dummy data which you cannot push live to any platforms.
To create one of these Channacademy companies, you must login to Channable itself and click the button 'Channacademy' (see below), meaning you must have a Channable account first. We link these accounts to your email address, not to a general company address like firstname.lastname@example.org. There are a few options here:
- Your personal email address is not yet known in Channable (you cannot login with it) but your company does have a Channable account.
- In this case, you must be invited to the existing Channable account by one of the users in that account. Check this article on how to do that.
- Your company does not yet have any Channable account at all (neither with a personal email address, nor with a company email address).
- In this case, you must sign up to Channable first and then sign up for the Channacademy.
- Your personal account is already linked to an account in Channable (whether it's your own company or someone else's - if you are working at a marketing agency, for example does not matter).
- In this case, you can just go to 'Channacademy' and create your own Channacademy account.
In all three cases, an individual Channacademy company will be created for you, to work on the assignments. It is only linked to your email address, not to your general Channable account.
