CreatorUp is a digital storytelling online academy that aims to teach the skills needed to produce, market and fundraise using web-based platforms. The courses are focused in four different content areas: Storytelling, Production, Promotion & Marketing, and Fundraising. All courses are designed to teach students skills for using the internet and social media as a business tool.
Storytelling courses include instruction in writing and producing web series across a variety of genres. Production courses offer classes in areas of cinematography like sound editing or classes on how to be a director of commercials or web series. The marketing curriculum has courses in building a brand with social media. Students can take courses in how to crowdfund as part of the fundraising curriculum.
Students have access to around 400 video lessons. The lessons are taught by entertainment industry professionals who specialize in using the internet to deliver content. Students take courses at their own pace, receive feedback from professors and participate in student forums or live eLab workshops. Upon completion of a content area, students can receive a Certificate of Completion from CreatorUp.
CreatorUp can be used independently, or as part of a curriculum in a middle or high school classroom. Teachers or administrators can purchase subscriptions for classes or whole schools, which gives students access to the video lessons, as well as training for teachers to integrate the videos into their curriculum.
Independent students have the option of either a monthly or yearly membership. The monthly membership is $25.00 per month and the annual membership is $200.00 per year. Both the monthly and annual memberships allow students to access the 400 video lessons, live workshops with teachers, and student discussion forums. There is an option for a 30-day free trial for new users.
For teachers and administrators, a yearly subscription can be purchased for $30.00 per student. The subscription allows students to view all lessons as well as gives teachers training on how to use the videos in their classroom.
