We are still working on this documentation

How do I get my course materials on your site?

You can upload your materials like PDF directly on the website. If your videos aren’t very heavy per file, you can also upload directly on the website. However, if your videos are heavy, we recommend uploading on DailyMotion, setting it on private and pasting the link on the lesson page. The video is automatically embedded and no one can download the video. Students must watch it on the website.

If you upload videos on YouTube or other platforms and set it to Public or Unlisted, note that students can copy the link to the video and share it to other people. This is why we only recommend DailyMotion as it is free!

Who has right over my course?

You! You can sell your course elsewhere but if you sell at lower price elsewhere and we find out, we may delete your course after informing you. This is because selling at lower price elsewhere will hurt our platform.

Will you promote my course?

We have free materials and paid packages that can help you promote your course. This documentation will be updated.

What languages can courses be taught in?

Any language you like. However, our website is written in English language and we encourage you use subtitles when teaching in another language.
