Bonus Lecture: Rules And Guidelines
This article will focus on the information about additional lectures or bonus lectures that should be provided to the students after the actual content.
What are Additional Lectures?
Additional lectures are the lectures posted in the course after uploading the actual content of the course. These additional lectures are used as marketing tools by the instructors to market their additional products services or additional courses you have created.
These additional lectures can be a demo or a sample of other courses that you have created or they can be used to give codes, coupons, referral links, discounts to other products and services, and affiliate links for extra course materials.
Points to be kept in mind regarding Additional or Bonus Lectures
These additional lectures are a marketing tool to publicize other products and services by the same instructor and hence this tool has some policies and guidelines that need to be followed by the instructor to avoid exploitation of this feature by any person on the platform. These additional lectures should not become a hindrance to the actual learning content of the students.
The rules are mentioned below:
The content of your additional lecturer should not be mentioned in any of the course titles topics or sub-topics. The latter information is visible on the course landing page hence no content about the bonus lecture should be visible on the course landing page.
The title of the additional lecture should strictly include the word additional or bonus to separate it from the rest of the course content. This will allow the students to differentiate these lectures from the actual course.
These lectures should not be accessible as the free preview as it will lead to the added publicity of these bonus lectures instead of the actual content available in the course which will be of substance to the students.
Any resources like PDF or Word files must be included in the bonus lecture.
The rule of having only one additional lecture per course should be strictly followed.
These additional lectures should not be a part of any messaging tool or interactive tool for announcements.
These additional lectures can strictly only be publicized in the course content after the whole course is done.
This should not be visible on the course landing page
If the policies and guidelines for these lectures are violated, it will lead to a negative impact on the clientele and hence provide you with negative feedback which will decrease the value of your content. It has been seen that such messages lead to students unsubscribing from the emails from the platform. This will be considered a violation of the policy.
