There are two types of courses on STARTUPPIE:
1. Online class.
These classes are open to anyone; a student can sign up automatically and take a class on his own schedule.
2. Online accelerator.
These classes are designed to work on a real business case together with a mentor.
For startups, this means developing a marketing strategy, product design, or whatever course specialty is – for their business, while getting feedback from mentors and classmates.
For students who want to expand their expertise or get a new specialty this means workin on a real case and gaining not just knowledge, but also a real case experience, which can lead to a potential hire.

Any course requires certain time from a teacher / mentor even after it goes life. Your students might need clarifications, have questions or simply provide you with valuable feedback. Furthermore, based on a course type, you might need to invest your time into reviewing students quizzed and assignments.
You can choose how much time you want to spend on teaching your class by choosing a course type and thinking through your quizzes and assignments. You can also share your responsibilities with other mentors (which we will provide).
Online class needs minimum time for its support. It doesn’t have assignments or quizzes that require teacher’s feedback, neither does it have a forum.
Online accelerator needs more time. For this class type, you will ask students to submit individual assignments or complete certain tasks that require reviews and feedback. Students will also use forum to ask questions or share their thoughts. Finally, each student will have one-on-one time with you for personal consultations.
There is no fee for creating and hosting a class on Startuppie. You can create as many free or paid classes as you want.
