What is the revenue sharing structure?

How do you select content for the library?
We actively seek material that is considered to be best practices, evidence based and relevant to all Early Childhood Education, child care and early years child care professionals. Material is sourced from Early Childhood Education and child care associations, universities, child care consultants, and other non-profit organizations. All content is vetted by our Advisory Panel.
Why are courses only $20?
The price of each learning module was set with the Early Childhood Educator in mind. As what is typically a minimum-wage profession, every dollar counts!
I do not have the time / resources to develop a course.
We do all the work and consult with you to ensure the integrity of your material is maintained.All we ask of you is to provide us with the course material - we do the rest.
Who owns my course when it is published?
We do not ask any of our authors or contributors to give up ownership of their material. We simply ask permission to publish it on-line.
Workshops are an important source of revenue for me.
Factors such as geography, schedules and classroom capacity can often be a barrier to professional learning. On-line learning gives you the ability to offer your courses beyond the classroom!
How do I update my course?
As a contributing author, we rely on you to keep us informed of any material changes to the course content. Simply contact us to make any changes.
Can I use my learning module as a pre-requisite for my workshop/webinar?
Absolutely! Simply include your course link as part of the registration process, (or send it by email) to those enrolled in your workshop.
How long is my course offered in the library?
We review the content in our library on an annual basis and update or renew our courses based on a variety of considerations.
How do I remove my course from your library?
You can withdraw your permission at any time. We ask that notice be given in writing 2 months in advance. This gives any Early Years Professionals who are currently enrolled an opportunity to complete the course.
Can I contribute more courses to your library?
We encourage contributors to submit additional content. Each course is reviewed by our Director, Program Development and may be subject to the approval of our Advisory Panel.
