I really appreciate your feedback. Thanks!
The topic typos have been corrected. I’m deploying a new build now that corrects typos on front page and in terms and conditions.
The “75%” number was a typo. It is now corrected to be 85%.
The monthly check part is only temporary. The intent is to have Stripe automatically allocate funds directly to author accounts. I intend to have this working within the month. I’m not familiar with Stripe’s multinational capabilities.
I’ll think about #13. If students want a refund due to dissatisfaction with content, both the author and publisher should be responsible.
The editor is a full wysiwyg editor, so authors can make things as visually appealing as desired. However, due to the intended limited scope of each topic, a lot of formatting might not be necessary. In a text book, for example, a lot of the formatting are organizational clues to the student. With eVrsity, the idea is that the system will dynamically handle subject matter organization based on topic relationships.
I have looked at teachable and udemy. While they are very polished products, they don’t incorporate the fundamental idea of eVrsity, self organizing subject matter based on topic relationships. I think my long range goals are different also.
I used Meteor because it had an appealing learning curve. Hopefully, I will eventually have to worry about Meteor scalability!
I hosted on Galaxy because it was very easy to do so. I’ll rethink hosting if Galaxy hosting becomes too expensive.
As an author, you might be intrigued by eVrsity’s authoring capabilities. Imagine not having to think about subject matter organization. Just start describing small self contained topics, linking them with regard to precedence and having the system handle topic organization and presentation order.
