To deliver a consistent learning experience for our students, Plantoost courses must meet minimum standards. There is a step-by-step process every instructor goes through before our Quality Review Team gets your course approved. We reserve the right to re-review courses if instructors violate these standards at any point. At Plantoost, there is an incentive to create courses with a good learning experience. When students love what they have experienced, they become lifelong learners.
Why your course's quality matters
With an abundance of online courses out there, potential students are inclined to pay attention to courses with a higher level of quality. High-quality courses are also likely to be featured and included in our promotion algorithmic programming, which help further raise credibility and visibility on the platform.
Creating a high-quality course takes time and effort — it involves a ton of hard work. It means knowing how to produce polished videos, creating transcripts, and convincing the world why your course stands out from the rest.
So what, really, do we mean by “a high-quality course”?
Let's take a look at the following criteria.
A high-qualtiy course is one that has a well-structured content. Courses should be based upon a lesson plan or course outline and must be semantically well-structured for instruction.
Audio & Visual Quality
If your course lesson is a video, the audio must be clear and easy to comprehend, with little to no distracting background noises. The visual content must not be blurry or pixelated and preferably of high resolution.
Number of Lessons
Courses must have at least five lessons. The lessons must have a total duration of at least 10 minutes.
What is the best way for your students to learn something from your course? Provide a project component if you can because learning by doing has been one of the tried and tested ways for students to quickly acquire a skill.
Share Experience & Value
Your experience and insight are perhaps the most useful in building your course curriculum. You should also increase the value of your course in the form of advice, best practices, concepts, and/or examples.
