How it works
Once you have submitted a proposal for review, the OSFD team will be in touch with you to help build your course according to our guidelines and quality standards.
In order to set up your course proposal, we will need you to share the relevant information with us via [this form]. We also ask that you share a video of you teaching, or giving a presentation. This can be a recording of something you’ve done in the past and it’s going to show the OSFD your teaching and/or public speaking skills.
The OSFD team will review your information, and if the topic you’ve chosen aligns with the OSFD current offer and content mix, we’ll be in touch with you.
You’ll receive access to a digital folder containing a Course Template. In this document you’re asked to structure your course in detail. You will work on this document with an OSFD team member who can answer any questions and help you to translate your idea into a complete online course. In this Course Template you’re also asked to create and record one full lesson and share with us the video.
Once the Course Template is completed and you send us one video lesson, the OSFD team will review it checking for consistency, quality of the content, learning modality, learning outcomes. Finally we will look at the video lesson and consider the video/audio quality and your teaching style.
If your course is accepted for publication you will receive our Author’s Friendship Pact outlining our terms and conditions.
Once you have recorded and uploaded your material, OSFD will take care of the rest. We will upload the course to the OSFD platform and publish it. According to our course release schedule the OSFD team will decide when to launch the course. You will be notified when this happens.
When your course will be launched you will be asked to participate in promotional activities like a live interview on the OSFD Instagram page, a live webinar on Dr. Francesca Zampollo’s YouTube channel, etc.
