This tutorial will show you how to create a blog on LearnWorlds using the dedicated blogging solution DropInBlog. It’s a simple, breezy, and delightful experience.

LearnWorlds is a learning management system (LMS) that allows you to build a website and create a blog.

We can't dispute the merits of a LearnWorlds website; for anyone who's had a chance to see one, they're evident. However, the same does not apply to its built-in blogging solution. Keep reading and you'll learn precisely why.

The Benefits of Using DropInBlog vs. LearnWorlds for Blogging

Knowing the marketing significance of blogging, LearnWorlds has developed its own blogging functionality. It's available as a feature of all the platform's pricing plans apart from the lowest tier, Starter.

It is remarkable that LearnWorlds includes a blogging option, but what's not so remarkable is that this functionality is unnecessarily complicated. A cursory look at the LearnWorlds tutorial on creating a blog is enough to get a feel for that complexity (for the lack of a better word).

That's why to create a blog on LearnWorlds we suggest you try a dedicated blogging solution that is also straightforward and convenient. LearnWorlds allows you to integrate third-party apps, so you can rely on DropInBlog to add a full-fledged yet simple blog to your LearnWorlds website in just a few easy steps.

DropInBlog is one of the best-rated apps in the highly competitive ecosystems of Shopify and BigCommerce third-party apps. It has helped tons of businesses find their voice and establish themselves in their niches through blogging. But don't just take our word for it; see the blogging beauty others have brought to this world with a little help from DropInBlog.

LearnWorlds is a platform that allows you to create, manage, market, and sell online courses. It's a good choice for course creators, edupreneurs, and everyone in the e-learning niche.

LearnWorlds is known for its high-quality customer support, but that's not its only highlight. The platform also includes:

  • White labeling
  • A good number of integrations
  • A streamlined drag-and-drop website builder

In addition, it allows you to create a mobile app for your e-learning business, and just like many other modern platforms, LearnWorlds, too, relies on artificial intelligence for more efficient work.

As mentioned earlier, LearnWorlds does include native blogging functionality. In that sense, you can use it for blogging. However, more often than not, the built-in blogging options on platforms whose primary purpose is not blogging are not recommended if you're serious about content marketing.

Usually, these blogs lack features and scalability, which is only natural, considering that content marketing is more of an afterthought than a primary objective for those platforms. It's worth noting, however, that LearnWorlds' native blog fares much better than many others.

Nonetheless, blogging is just a secondary functionality, and starting a blog with LearnWorlds is more complicated than it should be. For these reasons, we recommend a third-party specialized blogging solution, such as DropInBlog.


In this tutorial, you learned how to add a full-fledged blog to your LearnWorlds site using the user-friendly DropInBlog. Happy blogging, and please do not hesitate to get in touch whenever you feel like talking about blogging and DropInBlog.
