Free Social Networking
Social networking is provided free of charge for every member with ads displayed every now and then. Members can opt to get rid of the ads for a year at 1.99 per month.
Members can place classifieds to the Marketplace for a limited time without any cost. Those who wish to get advantage of lengthier display of their classifieds can buy virtual credits specifically for the Marketplace.
Deliver or attend as many courses and live classes as you wish without any restrictions. No limits to the number of your friends, learners or instructors either. Sole restriction is the capacity of the virtual classrooms for the number of attendees.
Subscriptions expire after a month, 4 months or a year. Three options to grant more flexibility and better suit your needs.
Free Virtual Classroom
Education plans include unlimited access for free to open source virtual classrooms with basic features - they require no early reservation. State-of-the-art (premium) virtual classrooms are also provided upon request; they are subject to availability and require early reservation - at least one week ahead of time.
PayPal account is required to receive payments for your courses (tuition) through the platform. Fees from PayPal's payment gateway may still apply in this case.

No hidden costs, pay per seat pricing or commissions substracted from tuition / tutor's payment. A booking fee starting from as low as 0.75 € per hour applies to instructor only for reservation of premium classrooms.
