Everyone Has Something They Can Teach

You don’t have to be a professor to share your knowledge, expertise, life lessons and information with the world – you just have to care about something, or want to help somebody get through something that you’ve experienced; or stop anybody from having to go through what you did at all; or help somebody to achieve something that you have achieved; or share something that you found helpful to learn about yourself…. That’s it.  
We’ve all got one of those.  

Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to get approved as an instructor?

Once you submit your instructor application, you will be notified within 2-3 business days.

I have a course that I host on other online learning platforms. Can I use that course on Melanence?

Yes, as long as you own full rights to the content and are not in a contractual relationship with other sites where your course is offered.

How do I make money as a course instructor?

Melanence instructors earn revenue based on a royalty system. Each month, 30% of Melanence’s total Membership revenue goes to a royalty pool for instructors.

Instructors are paid from the royalty pool based on their share of the minutes watched by the Melanence community (both paying members and those in free trials) across the platform each month.

How long will my course stay on the platform?

You will have the ability to add and remove courses as you choose.

There are other courses teaching my topic. Should I still create a course?

Yes! Every course that is hosted on Melanence is selected because of the courses’ unique perspective. While topics may be similar, you are bringing your unique experience and perspective to the topic.

I have a narrated slideshow/PowerPoint, can I use that as my course?

Technically yes, but the likelihood of having high engagement on this type of course is low. We encourage all instructors to stay away from courses that are made up of static slides and just your voice. To keep your audience engaged, you want to make sure that you create something they want to watch. We suggest that your course includes you on camera at least 20% of the time. A mixture of demonstrations, on-screen talking, and images help to create a dynamic and engaging course. 

How long does it take for my course to be approved?

Please allow for 2-3 business days after the course is submitted for your course to be approved and made available on the site.

Should I include coursework and/or quizzes to supplement my course?

The course project is a great way to engage users during and beyond your course. You can design the project to test their knowledge and apply what they have learned in real world application.

Will I still own the rights to my video once uploaded to the platform?

Yes, you retain all rights to any course materials that you feature on the platform.

How often should I check on my course?

Users love to have engagement with the course instructor, so we suggest you check your course every 3-4 days. When users see that the instructor is engaged with the audience they are more likely to take more of your courses and connect with you.

Do I need to have a Melanence membership to be an instructor?

Yes. In order to be paid, all course instructors will need to have an active Melanence membership.
