Today I got an email from the “Colonel” introducing the new eduFire “All You Can Eat Learn Menu” at the amazing price of $29!
Jon told me already quite a while ago about it and now I am really interested to see the effects the SuperPass will have on paid lessons.
So let me give you a brief overview and my thoughts about this offer.
The SuperPass costs $29 per month and allows the holder to take as many classes as he / she wants to take. Unlimited lessons for one month! Plus not only students but also every teacher can join the SuperPass program and start to learn.
All classes on eduFire are automatically part of the SuperPass program. But teachers can also uncheck this option when setting up a class.
So, as you know me, most important question: What can the teachers earn?
Every month eduFire will set a rate per student (RPS). For June for example the RPS is $3.51. The revenue earned via SuperPass classes will be paid at the end of each month via PayPal.
Conclusion: eduFire promots the SuperPass as follows
We feel SuperPass has the potential to revolutionize the way people learn. It’s also an incredible opportunity to reach students around the world.
Definitely. $29 for unlimited lessons is a price nearly everyone should be able to afford. This might have a huge impact in regions like India, China and Africa.
For the teachers it will be interesting how the RPS will change over the next couple of months and where it will finally stabilize. I think it might settle around $1.50 depending on how many people sign up for a SuperPass and then how many classes those students will take during the month.
But of course with a flatrate classes will be fuller than today and even if the RPS goes down: when you have 50 students in your class you still will earn good money.
Another importent thing to consider is that this offer is really unlimited whereas the discontinued Myngle Boost for 99 Euro only allowed the student to have one lesson with one teacher per day although it was promoted as “unlimited”, too.
It will be very interesting to see how many lessons a student will take per day as there is a far wider choice on the eduFire platform. You can start the day with some Italian, then attend a cooking class, followed by martial arts and computer slang in the evening.
So yes, SuperPass might change the way we learn and teach. I am looking forward to the next weeks and months!
Ah, another interesting thing in this email I received:
Switching to 100% Prepay
On July 15 eduFire will be switching all classes and one-on-one lessons to prepay only. We’ve made this decision based off of your feedback and the direction we’re planning to head in the future.
Am I smelling lesson packages?! …
