What topics should I offer and pitch to the Edifice Atelier?
We encourage you to teach classes on topics you are passionate about and very experienced with, and ideally that you have taught before. We welcome classes on all subjects as related to our unique genre and in all formats for any age. We generally suggest offering a range of classes including introductory, intermediate, and expert classes that meet our criteria.
Who can teach?
The Edifice Atelier does not require formal teaching credentials. We believe that many adults can offer rewarding classes based on their experience and interests.
What does it cost? And how do I get paid?
It’s free to list static pre-recorded and completed courses on our Learning Management System (LMS) or live Zoom classes. We take a 40% service fee from enrollments, so we only get paid when we succeed in bringing you learners. You have full control over the listed price for a class and number of participants (Zoom). You receive payment via PayPal or direct deposit after the class ends (live Zoom) within 48 hours.
If we are producing a class for you in our film studios. We take a 70% service fee from enrollments, so we only get paid when we succeed in bringing you learners. As your course is a static self serve course you will receive payment via PayPal or direct deposit once a month depending on sales.
So why 70%? Each filmed education package to shoot, edit and create costs approximately $45,000 – $75,000 in production costs, which becomes our responsibility.
