Standard

Courses

On-demand Videos

A standard course is designed for independent learning with pre-recorded videos.  Members enroll individually, have access to the videos for as long as they are published.

Course Content

Each course has at least 4 instructional videos averaging 3-8 minutes each.  There is no limit to the number of videos a course can have and instructors have access to add new videos or refresh content at their discretion.

Pricing

Instructors set their own pricing based on course content and demand.  Recommendations provided.

Interactive

Courses

Video Exchange

An interactive course is designed for personalized instruction using a video exchange.  Members enroll individually or as a group up to 5 members. Access is monthly and can be renewed.

Interactive courses allow for asynchronous learning which is usefull when you have students across multiple timezones.  It also works well for instructors with varied, unpredictable schedules and those in areas with less reliable internet connections.  

Course Content

Each course has 1-3 core videos that are available to a member immediately upon enrollment.  The member uploads an introductory video telling of their experience and goals along with an optional demonstration video.  Instructors upload 2-3 instructional videos over the remaining 30 days and review up to 3 progress videos submitted by the member.

Pricing

Instructors set their own pricing based on their target audience and demand.  Recommendations provided.

Net Sales Revenue

Calculation of instructors’ revenue share is based on net sales revenue.  The amount is calculated as follows:

Real People

Real Places

We strive to provide access to instructors far and wide, including instructors with busy professional careers and instructors in hard to reach places with limited resources.  

We ask you to present your work with the highest quality possible, especially for pre-recorded videos in Standard Courses.  However, we don’t want technical requirements to be a roadblock.

For Interactive Courses, many instructors teach online from their homes, while on tour, sometimes even from rooftops.  This means members get to connect with them as real people in the everyday course of their lives.

We prioritize access and the quality of the content when reviewing courses for approval.
