Submitting Content

To minimize editing and expedite the course delivery process, closely review your course content.  Keep these thoughts in mind as you develop your course content:

  • A compelling one to two hour online course consists of tightly focused content
  • Identify core information for the learner
  • Emphasize the important “take aways” 
  • Provide an outcome (technique, prevention, solution) 

ADA Course Business Models
The standard model allows the author to maintain rights to the intellectual property (course content) and receive a 30% royalty generated quarterly from each purchased course. Course material may be submitted at any time.
