Frequently Asked
Questions
What is a mini course?

A mini course is a short, informational video that focuses on a specific topic.

Who can submit a mini course?

Our mini courses are created by community members who are Top-Rated and above. They are successful professionals in their industry on Upwork and who are passionate about teaching others about a topic.

What topics can my mini course be about?

Your mini course can be about any topic you are passionate about as long as it’s professional and engaging. For example, if you are a designer, you may have some helpful Photoshop tips you’d like to share. Or if you are a project manager, perhaps there are certain organization tools you recommend.

Why should I submit a mini course?

Having a mini course published to Upwork Academy would give you exposure to an audience of 100,000+ monthly Academy visitors and it would also be another way for you to identify yourself as an expert professional in your industry. Not to mention, you would be teaching other independent professionals something new that might help them and their businesses.

How will I know if Upwork Academy has accepted my mini course submission?

Once your submission has been received, an Academy team member will review it. If it meets all of the guidelines listed above and the Academy team decides to move forward with production, you will receive an email notification once it is published.

How long will it take for my mini course to be published if chosen?

If your mini course submission is chosen to be published, you can expect to see it added to Academy within 3-4 weeks.

I have a few different topics in mind, can I submit more than one mini course?

Absolutely! What’s important is that each mini course is concise and stays focused on a single topic since they are meant to be short. But if you have several different topics in mind, feel free to submit as many mini courses as you’d like!
