In an open call for instructors, My Creative Classroom is looking for talented teachers of arts and crafts online classes. Classes should run 4-8 weeks long and are typically based on techniques or longer projects. Instructor's can be located anywhere in the world as long as they have internet access.
"Our business model offers the best of both worlds for both students and instructors," said Jeri Parks, owner of My Creative Classroom. "We offer highly interactive online arts and crafts courses in a virtual setting. The results are motivated students from all over the United States and beyond and a unique opportunity for exceptional instructors."
My Creative Classroom instructors earn 60% of class fees in addition to auxiliary income through the sale of class kits, products and supplies. Many current instructors are increasing their revenue and traffic to their own personal online stores, blogs and websites.
Once commissioned, instructors create their own curriculum and class schedule. My Creative Classroom offers the online venue and distribution system--similar to online college courses. Required tools for an online instructor includes: a computer with high speed Internet access, a digital camera, photo editing software, word processing software and a microphone. My Creative Classroom offers technical support during set-up for the instructor as well as during the class for students.
Online instructors create all their own course content and produce a step by step PDF with photos and a narrated presentation. Lessons are posted once a week to the pre-registered class. Instructors are then expected to facilitate the class, answer any questions and offer constructive feedback.
My Creative Classroom has connected over 2,800 online students with accomplished scrapbook and art instructors for virtual classes. Both students and teachers hail from the US and over 40 other countries.
My Creative Classroom accepts applications until July 20th, 2009 through their website. To apply for an instructor's position visit the instructor resource page, review the instructor package, download the application and submit your application to My Creative Classroom.
