Frequently Asked Questions
Do I lose ownership of my content?
No. Never. You own all your content. We don’t force exclusivity either, so you’re not restricted to only submitting content here. We want to be another channel through which you can share your knowledge and experience with others.
What kind of courses/topics are you looking for?
At Mad Discover, we focus on courses that address highly specific topics. We don’t expect instructors to be super knowledgeable about everything related, rather we prefer to focus on singular topics that instructors are very comfortable with. For instance, instead of creating a “How to Make a VR App” course that covers everything involved i , an instructor might make a course that goes in-depth into a particular aspect of this, such as “How to Optimize a VR app” or even more specifically, “Proper Lighting Techniques for Standalone Experiences”.
We do this because it allows members to learn specific skills depending on where they are in their career. Plus, it’s less overwhelming at first glance; learning how to light an scene seems like a more achievable goal than becoming an awesome developer or filmmaker overnight.
Similarly, it puts less pressure on instructors since they get to be as comprehensive as they want about a topic they’re experienced in.
What course formats do you accept?
At the moment, we only accept video courses. However, these don’t have to be high-end video productions, a course can be as simple as recording a screencast of your desktop while providing voice over with a good microphone. Don’t worry if you’re not comfortable at first, we’ll work with you to make your courses the best they can be.
If you’d like to provide written content, we also provide the opportunity for instructors to write guest posts on our blogs and reach a global audience.
How are payments calculated?
Instructors get paid whenever their courses are watched by members. We calculate how many views your courses received against the total number of all content views that month, we then multiply this by a percentage of total subscription revenue. This can provide a source of recurring revenue each month.
Any other bonuses?
Yup! Instructors have free access to all the courses. Learning never stops and we want to make it easier for you to keep up with what’s happening in the video production industry.
