Got a little bit of insight on a topic...sell it for $300 on

link had a sale recently where it offered over 17,000 courses for $15. I was lucky enough to enroll in some of the courses at a great price. I'm thankful for that. But...

The first course I tried was astonishing. Over 95% of the content was literally the most basic factual information imaginable (freely available from multiple sources). There were some good (seemingly original) insights but if you took all of those insights from the "course", you wouldn't have enough content for a really good blog post. I'm not exaggerating. I've read lots of freely available blog posts on many topics with more detailed, original insights than what that "course" offered.

There's a 30 day money-back guarantee on the course and I'm not going to ask for a refund when I got such a huge discount. However, the course was barely worth $15, if it was at all. And yet somehow happy customers supposedly paid the nearly $300 price tag.

Is it unethical to put out a "course" like that and sell it for around $300? I suppose if you're offering a 30 day money-back guarantee, it isn't.

Anyway, if you've got a little bit of insight on a topic (and who doesn't)...sell it for $300 on Why not? It could be a fun hobby even if you don't get rich.

BTW, I ran across a udemy teacher who claims to have over a million dollars in sales on udemy. Getting rich is a possibility.

Coursera offers some incredible classes from big university sources. Some of the material is quite advanced and it's free. Worth a look.
