Many educators have told us that the most valuable learning experiences occur over a series of lessons. This gives time for a learning relationship to develop with both the mentor and between peers. However, sometimes a one-off experience can spark an interest and makes a great introductory experience.
We make it possible for you to offer offer a fixed course or a one-off experience.
What is a block?
How many sessions go into a block?
Can I offer different priced experiences?
I’m a guitar teacher, I want an ongoing commitment, what should I do?
I’m offering a one-off experience to give children a taster, how do I create a block?
Where can I get some help with setting my price and designing my blocks?
Do you have questions or suggestions about how we could improve this page?
A block is a complete bookable experience. A learner can choose a block and they will pay for this in one go.
That is completely up to you.
It could be one session or 20 sessions. The key thing is that you are asking learners to pay for the whole block in one go.
You will also be asked to do a review at the end of each block.
You can choose to price your course either by the hour, or by choosing a total price. If you choose a total price, each block is displayed as the same price, no matter how many sessions are included in it. If you price by the hour, block totals will vary depending on how many hours are included in the block.
Also, don’t forget that you can create as many listings as you want!
You might want to offer a similar experience for different ages or with different equipment or learning aims. All of these difference might affect the price you want to charge.
For example, if you are a guitar teacher:
Choose a number of weeks that makes sense for payment. Make it affordable, five to six weeks is quite common.
When the learner is ready to pay for the next block, create a new listing and send a quick message to tell them it is ready.
You will be presented with the options (similar to below) when creating an experience, you will be able to select your dates and times of your choosing.
For example, if you want to offer a bicycle maintenance course:
You want the learner to pay for one session.
Each session is a complete experience.
You will fill in a reflection for each learner when this experience is over.
