Collaborating with others to create course content is an important part of building high quality courses. One of the challenges with creating a course with other educators is distributing royalties fairly and in a way that reduces the amount of time and paperwork for the owner of the course.
Today, we are happy to announce that Embrasure Space now supports multiple author courses and has the ability to distribute royalties to a second user when a course is sold.
There are two ways to partner with another educator to produce a course. The first way would be to have an agreement in place between the course owner and the supporting educator where the course owner receives 100% of the earnings when the course is sold and then distributes these earnings accordingly. This is a simple way to retain ownership of the course and control the cashflow of your business; however you will need to distribute payments on your own and provide a 1099-MISC to your partners at the end of the year.
If you do not want to add more work to your plate, but do want to collaborate with another educator on a course, Embrasure Space can add 1 additional user to a course and assign a royalty to that user when the course is sold. We distribute royalties to your partner on the last day of each quarter via PayPal and issue a 1099-MISC to everyone at the end of the year.
The cost to enable the royalty feature is $50 per year per course. The royalty add-on can be purchased here: https://embrasurespace.com/product/course-royalties-add-on/
All the best,
