At the Home screen you will be prompted to register - select Educator as your account type. This will take you to the Educator Dashboard where you can complete your Educator details, profile, bank account information and create courses.
You will need to use a new separate email if you have already signed up as a Learner. We don't have the facility to swap between the two account types yet.
We share in revenue a set percentage based on your account level after transaction (merchant fee) costs. Transaction costs are the cost of processing the credit card transaction, commonly called "merchant fees" which are charged by the payment gateway.
Free accounts will receive 50% revenue share of course fees after transaction costs.
Premium accounts ($29.95 per month) will receive 60% revenue share of course fees after transaction costs.
Professional accounts ($99.95 per month) will receive 70% revenue share of course fees after transaction costs.
Enterprise accounts ($299.95 per month) will receive 80% revenue share of course fees after transaction costs.
For each transaction there is a flat 30c charge plus a percentage. For domestic (Australian) credit cards the percentage is 1.75%. For international (outside of Australia) or Amex the percentage is 2.9%.
Payments are made monthly at the end of each month for the month before. That means if you sell course through say for example September, then you will be paid at the end of October. Make sure you complete your banking information correctly otherwise you will not be paid.
Refunds will be given subject to the official Refund Policy. If a Learner disputes a charge or doesn't think the course was up to their expected standard TappnEd will apply a clawback procedure for that course amount, and deduct it from the total amount owing on the next payment run.
Go to your Dashboard and select the Reporting menu option on the left, then Financials tab, and either select Last Payment period or using the Date Range From and To.
Payment is calculated as Gross Course Revenue less Merchant Fees less TNE (TappnEd) Commission equals total Net Revenue. This amount will be inclusive of GST.
The higher your account level then the more revenue share, more features and more storage you get. As you upgrade your account level your monthly quota of free courses will increase allowing more Learners to experience your courses for free.
Go to My Account, select Account Information tab, and Change Plan upgrade blue button. You will be asked to put in your credit card details which will be encrypted and passed through to the secure payment gateway. No credit card details are kept on our system.
Only you and authorised TappnEd staff can see your private account details. Some basic information that you publish in a course will be visible to website visitors. All data passed from your browser to TappnEd is through an encrypted connection using an industry standard SSL certificate which relies on 256 bit AES encryption algorithms. A green padlock will appear in the address bar when the connection is encrypted. Credit card details are also encrypted as they are passed through to the payment gateway.
Yes. You are able to downgrade your account any time and the new level will take effect on the next date of monthly renewal. Make sure you set your courses, video length and storage to coincide with your decreased account access level otherwise the system will automatically disable your account.
There are several ways you can market courses.
Go to Courses main menu-> Settings "cog" icon ->Edit. You must first allow TappnEd to post on your behalf. It will only do so when you chose to. No automatic posting is enabled unless you calendar a future posting (for embargoed courses to be advertised in the future for example). Select the social media account with the check box and either share now or share later. Share later will schedule a post according to time and date you select. This will be in your local time.
Go to Courses main menu-> Settings "cog" icon ->Edit and select preview holding page in browser. This will open up a new tab in your browser.
Go to Courses main menu->Settings "cog" icon->Edit.
You may edit you course by adding, deleting or changing a call to action from the Courses main menu->Settings "cog" icon->Edit option and then adding new or existing lessons (which will contain the respective call to actions). Be aware if you change a course by adding deleting or editing any part of it after a Learner has started the course but before they have finished it may not be accurately reported later, or they may have to restart the course to take account of your changes.
You can charge whatever you want but try and set to price to reflect reasonable value for money. If a Learner thinks your course isn't what you advertise it to be for the price paid, then they may request a refund. Refund requests are evaluated according to the official Refund Policy.
Courses can have as many lessons contained within them as you want. The limitation of video length applies to whatever your account access is. You can have as may paid courses published as you want.
A lesson (or video), can be as long as the video is, and will be based on your account level. To find out your account level list of accessible features go to My Account menu->Account information which will show the table of available features and functions for all account levels. Your account type will be shown at the top of the page. Free accounts have a maximum video length of 3 minutes, Premium accounts = 5 minutes max, Professional = 20 minutes and Enterprise = 30 minutes.
Globally. Learners can purchase a TappnEd course anywhere in the world as long as they have a valid credit card. Educators are currently only able to be paid using Australian bank accounts however we will be installing a global payment option soon.
Yes, you can sign up if you don't have an Australian bank account, however we will not be able to pay you until our international payment feature is available. In the meantime, we will accrue all course revenue share for distribution later when the feature becomes available.
We anticipate making international payment options available mid 2016.
There are a number of points with regard to large school group access of the course that are important.
- register before the day so that if an account is not established there is some time to have it confirmed manually.
- allowing/encouraging staff to complete the course throughout the day or over the week, rather than at the one time may reduce staff frustration if there are any issues.
- allowing/encouraging staff to complete the course at alternate times of their choosing before the day.
