Amp Up Your Educator Experience
Get to know the new home for teaching and professional development resources: the Educator Library.

In response to your feedback, we’ve created a new space to house all the most up-to-date information to grow your online teaching business, create engaging learning experiences, and design high-quality classes that impact learners and drive enrollments. With everything in one place, you can spend more time teaching and less time researching multiple channels for what you need.

Wondering how we got here? Let’s take a look at our design process.

Updates based on educator feedback

When members of the educator community send us messages, fill out surveys, or post in social groups like the Facebook Educator Hub, we use that feedback to create improvements that enhance your experience on Outschool. We were inspired by comments and questions surrounding a few specific areas:

  • Could we centralize educator resources, instead of spreading them out across different pages and website areas?
  • Could we make searching for and locating specific information, policies, or training easier for educators?
  • Could we do more to support educators’ learning as they grow as instructors and business owners?

With these ideas in mind, we set to work building an intuitive and well-organized center of educator materials and resources. Throughout the design process, we asked a group of current educators on Outschool to review the work-in-progress and provide feedback for our team. This beta testing gave us essential insights into where we were on the right track and what gaps we could fill to make sure the Educator Library you see today is meeting educators’ needs.

Opportunities to learn & connect

When you visit the Educator Library, you’ll have access to a wide range of learning opportunities designed specifically for educators like you. Whether you’re looking for tips on a singular aspect of online teaching or searching for something that might spark your next great class idea, you can find it here!

You’ll have the opportunity to:

  • Learn what you want, when you want, and develop your online teaching and business skills at your own pace
  • Save time by eliminating the need to search multiple channels for professional development or business coaching opportunities
  • Connect and share your expertise with other Outschool educators
