May I run a course at my church or organization?
Yes, of course you may! We'd love it if you did. That's why our courses are free to use: so that churches and organizations can use them as a resource.
We recommend that you complete our short overview course first so that you know how our courses work. Then simply arrange the people and a time and place, decide upon how regularly the group will meet, and off you go!
You can find more detail on how to do this here: Learn in a group or independently.
Am I allowed to charge people to attend the course I run?
Yes, you may. Think of our courses like you would a book. You can use a book to teach a seminar people pay for. The same goes for our courses. If you go to the trouble to arrange a venue and use your time to facilitate a course, you may earn money from it. A worker is worth his wages.
Of course, if you were to contribute a small percentage to Didasko, it would be most welcome. Contributions will help us run our web site, and develop more courses. But this is not compulsory.
May I teach instead of using the videos?
Of course, you don't have to use the videos at all if you don't want to. You can teach some or all of the material yourself, and just use our courses as an outline.
I don't agree with some of the videos, and don't want to use them on my course. Do I have to use all of them?
No, you don't. We'd just like to ask you to tell the learners that you've left out some videos, so that if they notice the gaps they don't think that our course is incomplete.
If you want to, you can even make your own replacements of selected videos. But we'd like to encourage you to also license these under the same Creative Commons license as ours. In fact, why don't you send them in to us? If we also prefer them to our own, we'll use them in our standard courses. This is how we can use collaboration to improve the courses.
