Create an online course to examine and reinforce existing knowledge while helping others and earning money. Familiarize yourself with our course creation process, requirements, and best practices to create a successful course that attracts interested participants.

Course Publication Process
Your course will remain in the Draft state while you are working on it. Once all of your course content is in place and you feel it is ready for publication, submit your course for review.

When you submit your course, it will be reviewed by one of our Course Editors to make sure it is of acceptable quality and meets our course requirements. The Course Editor will contact you with any suggestions or concerns that come up during the review process.

When your course is deemed complete, it will be marked “Published”. Once it is published on Experts Exchange, your course will be open for enrollment.


Earn Points

Once your course is Published, you will receive 10,000 point. You will also earn 500 points per course enrollment and 1 point per course view.

Course Requirements
Course Objective
The objective of your course should be made clear in the course description so that participants know what new knowledge they’ll gain. Similarly, section and lesson descriptions are recommended to clarify what knowledge the participant will have after completing a specific portion of your course.

Logical Structure
Your course should have a clear, logical structure. Course content should be broken into chapters and lessons to allow for a smooth progression through the material. Generally speaking, courses are most effective when broken into digestible chapters less than 15 minutes in length.

Clearly Presented Quality Content
Course content must be of high quality and free of audio/visual distractions. Try your best to ensure written material does not contain spelling or grammatical errors. Preferably, video content will have a 16:9 aspect ratio, full HD picture (1920x1080p) and be free of telecine or interlacing artifacts. Each video file submitted must be less than 1GB in size.

Original and Unique Content
Courses should be made up of your own original content. You may include quotes or short sections of other people’s work so long as you include the correct citations, references, and attributions.

Comply with Terms of Use
As with all content posted on Experts Exchange, your course content must comply with the Experts Exchange Terms of Use.
