Promote Your Course With Referral Links

Creating referring students is an important part of any instructor’s promotional strategy. When students use your referral link to enroll in your course, you will receive 97% (there is a 5% administrative processing fee) of the revenue share

This article explains course referral links instructors can create for their courses. For tips on how to effectively leverage referral links to drive student enrollments, please click here

Rules and guidelines for using course coupons and referral links:

Course referral links allow instructors to promote their courses to students on and off the platform. Course referral links are allowed only in promotional emails and the Bonus Lecture. They cannot be used anywhere else on the platform, because once students enter a course, they expect a safe learning environment where they will not be “sold” to.

Instructor – Detailed Guidelines

  • You may send course referral links only:
    • via Promotional Emails or
    • to your own audience via email or social media
  • You may not include course referral links in any of the following:
    • Educational announcements
    • Anywhere on the course landing page
    • Course material (excluding bonus lecture)
    • Direct Messages to students
    • Course Discussions

When an instructor is clearly going against the spirit of policies in an attempt to game the system or if we see a severe negative impact on the student experience (high unsubscribe rates or refund rates) it will be considered a violation of our policies.


Course referral links

Every paid course you publish has a referral link, which you can use to share and promote the course. When a student clicks on the link and proceeds to purchase your course within 24 hours, you will be credited with the sale, regardless of where the student clicked on the link (e.g., an affiliate site). 

  • Practice tests are longer and a more robust activity tool than quizzes. They are timed and graded only upon completion. Practice tests are useful if your course is intended to prepare learners for a final exam. So make it a realistic exam experience. Use similar question types, length, and requirement, as the real exam that the learners are preparing for (like the IGCSE, SPM, or certification exams).

    You can also create practice-test-only courses. Such courses must have a minimum of two practice tests.
