Course Policy for Marketplace
We take the course approval process very seriously, as we are very strict on the kind of course content we would like to see in our marketplace.
Our course review team reviews all courses submitted for approval by Instructors.
Publishing Your Courses
Once you are accepted as an Instructor to publish and teach courses on EDUfyre.com - you will receive an on-boarding email from our course content team at firstname.lastname@example.org. The "Welcome Email" will contain basic steps and guide you on the Do's and Dont's of the marketplace.
Publishing a new course on EDUfyre basically involves 2 steps. The first is to create a new course, and the second is to let us know when ready so our course moderation team can review and make it live on EDufyre.
As part of the course creation process you will need to set the name of the course, description, introductory preview video, course image thumbshot, price of the course, and the individual sections and lectures.
Do note that while you are creating a new course and uploading its individual lectures, you need to click the "publish" button on the top right corner while creating each new lecture that you wish to be visible to students once they sign up.
You may see the Instructor Guiide here for help on how to create new courses and lectures from your Instructor Dashboard.
Once you are done adding all the course material, you will need to send us a request to review the new course and publish it for inclusion in the marketplace.
To send a request to review your new course, simply click on the "Instructor" link on the header of your main hompeage dashboard at edufyre.com while logged in, and then select the option "Submit New Course Approval".
Our course moderation team will then review the course and publish it within 1 or 2 business days. If there is anything that needs to be changed or corrected, they will let you know by email so you can do the needful before its is published on the marketplace.
From time to time we run onsite and offsite promotions and we will include your course at the best suitable price based on the deal we are offering. If you do not want to be included in such promotions, please let us know by writing to email@example.com
Branding Your Course
You may now reasonably include your contact information or any URLs and domains names etc. in the course material. This includes your main course sales page, any preview videos and content people see. The contact information should not be jarring or too prominent.
Please make sure you do not insert any links to pages offsite in which you collect email addresses or ask students to pay or opt-in BEFORE they can access information. You are allowed to link out to your blogs or company pages from inside the course.
Repeated or serious violations of this may result in a suspension or a ban of your account.
Updating Your Course After it is Live in the Marketplace
Once your course is published and live in the marketplace, you may not make any changes to it and add or remove content without notifying us of these changes. Should you make any changes to your course please update us immediately after you make these changes by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you do not inform us of any course updates you make, it will be a direct violation of the Terms and Conditions.
Accessing Your Students Data
You will see the names of your students and you may communicate and help them through the discussion below each courses individual lecture. You will also get to see advanced analytics and metrics for each course through your dashboard dashboard.
Instructors on EDUfyre.com are paid for signups 30 days after the end of the month in which a sale was made. This 30-day period is necessary to account for any refunds, since students have 30 days to request a refund on any course purchased through the system.
For example - if you sell 10 course downloads in the month of July, your revenue share payment will be made at the end of August.
You will be paid directly by our technology providers. We have a solid platform to handle all your payments and transactions, and use Stripe and Paypal to collect payments, and we use PayPal to issue out payments to instructors. Please ensure you have accurate PayPal address included in your Instructor Dashboard.
You will receive your payment based on the revenue share stated in your agreement with EDUfyre.com after Usefedora takes their processing fee (which is currently 2% of the total course sale cost).
From time to time, we will conduct promotions on the site, through email, online advertising etc. Your courses will automatically be included in such promotions and special pricing deals unless you explicitly tell us not to include your courses by mailing us at email@example.com
In the event that we conduct any paid advertising campaigns directly or indirectly, a flat 50% commission will be deducted towards the payment for the campaign per sale of your course made directly from the campaign (tracked via affiliate link and cookie of the paid campaign), and then your author revenue share percentage will be calculated from the remaining 50%.
Our Affiliate Program
From time to time, we may have affiliates who will sign up to promote your courses. You will automatically be signed up in our listing of your courses in as part of the Affiliate program unless you tell us to exclude you by mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org. When an affiliate promotes courses, you will receive your revenue share calculated after the Affiliate Commission Fees are paid on the total cost the course is sold for.
As an example - if a course sells for $100, and the affiliate commission is 10% you will get your instructor revenue share as negotiated with EDUfyre from the remaining 90% amount.
