Outschool is an incredible platform to begin your online teaching career. At the beginning of the Pandemic, Outschool gained users and teachers on the platform which made them one of the most sought out teaching platforms to use and teach on. But with the good, I want to list the Cons of teaching on Outschool.
Just because you list a class does not mean that it will have students that will enroll. Outschool has an incredible base of learners who are registered on the platform, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that they will enroll in your classes.
Outschool will take 30% of your class list price.
You get to take 70% of what you list your class at which is great. But if you add up the 30% you will see that it is a hefty price. Outschool promotes your classes on Social media and has the database with the students, but the 30% does add up over time.
Receiving feedback and reviews is great for online teachers because it gives the teacher constructive criticisms. BUT there will always be that parent who likes to complain or can do it better. Although you don’t run into that many parents who are like on Outschool, that is not to say they are not there. As an Outschool teacher, I have had a few. AND only a few. Outschool isn’t very involved when it comes to removing negative reviews from parents, so as a teacher it can be a bit frustrating, especially when you don’t have many reviews in the beginning.
Aside from the Cons, there are so many PROS to working and teaching online with Outschool!
