Courses are a great way to share more of your work, and for our community to go in-depth in teachings that complement their practice. It is also our main revenue generator on the app so it is a means for Insight Timer teachers to earn a meaningful income. You can view courses here.
Courses follow a simple format: 5 to 80 days with daily sessions that range between 10-15 minutes. They are audio only and pre-recorded. At the end of each session, there is a written survey where teachers ask students a reflective question with four possible answers. Each course has an interactive classroom where teachers can respond using audio or text. Furthermore, it costs nothing to be involved and you can edit or remove your material at any time.
COURSE APPROVAL PROCESS
We are keen to know more about your idea for a course. However, due to high demand and limited resources, as well as courses being a premium paid product, we have determined a set of minimum qualifications a teacher must meet in order to proceed with creating a course. These are:
- Must already be a Teacher on Insight Timer (Here's how to sign up for a Teacher Profile)
- Uploaded at least five tracks on the platform (Learn how to upload content)
- At least 100 followers on the app (Read our tips on how to grow your audience)
- The general average for all meditations must be 4.7 or above. (Here's our best practices for content)
- An average of 4.7 ratings on previous course/s, if any
- Course topic must be unique, a fresh take, and/or addresses an underserved niche.
If a teacher ticks off all of these qualifications, they may submit a proposal by filling up this course proposal form (you need to have an active Google account because you'll be uploading some files via this form). Please note that submitting a proposal doesn't guarantee its approval.
Our team will then get in touch for the next steps. It usually takes up to 72 hours for our team to get in touch. Important: Please do not yet record any audio without advice from our team.
COURSE AUDIO QUALITY
Audio files for courses must be in mp3 format and high-quality. As premium offerings, studio quality is part of the standard requirements for courses. We strive to keep not only the content quality thoughtful and well-crafted, but the audio quality as well as part of our fair promise to premium Member Plus users. And since courses are paid products, typically users are also more discerning in terms of the overall quality of the recordings. Kindly ensure that there is little to no extra noise in your recordings like objects falling, dogs barking, people talking in the background, footsteps, and similar external sounds.
COURSE IMAGE QUALITY
We hold the accompanying images of our courses to the same standards as tracks. Please refer to our Image Requirements and Technical Specifications.
Infringement of or non-compliance with any of the above may result into rejection of tracks and courses, delay in publishing as well as temporarily or permanently being banned from using and uploading content on our platform.
