Project creation process

Are you interested in creating a project on Education Ecosystem platform? If so, then continue reading! This guide will show you the step-by-step process on how you can create projects on Education Ecosystem.

Let’s begin!

STEP 1: Sign up

If you are new to Education Ecosystem, the first thing you want to do is sign up for a Creator account here.

STEP 2: Select a Project to Work On

A. Picking a project

You can pick a project from the Education Ecosystem Viewer Project Requests sheet or suggest a new project. If the project you selected is approved by the Education Ecosystem manager, then you can consider it assigned to you.

Next, it’s time to write the overview and outline! 

B. Review the Project Outline

The Education Ecosystem project acquisition manager assigned to you will share with you a project outline for the project assigned to you. Glance over the project outline and provide any feedback you have. Example if you want some features added to the outline or some sections deleted you can add these as comments to the outline. The final outline will be reviewed and signed off by the manager.

STEP 3: After Your Project Outline is Approved

After your project outline is approved, you can start the next steps.

A. Record a 2 – 3-minute project introduction video

Use OBS to record your introduction. To do so, watch this video below:

Tutorial on how to use OBS

When recording the introduction, keep in mind to:

  • Follow this script when recording the introduction video.
  • Be friendly. Tell your students about yourself and your professional experiences.
  • Show the outline of your project that viewers can read while you’re speaking.
  • Be enthusiastic and confident when you talk!
  • DO NOT record with a black background.

B. Record the rest of the project videos

  • Once the introduction video is recorded and checked by project creation manager, you can go ahead and record the project videos 
  • Make sure:
    • to use the language/framework/api decided in the outline. 
    • to record the project in HD or 4k video quality. 
    • to use font sizes that are readable.
    • to not use any background music in your videos.
    • to not show your face when recording the project.

C. Project Creation Guidelines

Use a microservice architecture (Frontend and Backend)

When creating a project, you should use the microservices architecture, where the frontend and the backend code are separated and are run in its own environment. By breaking it down this way, the code is more manageable and developers can focus on developing and deploying the frontend and backend individually. For example, a project that shows how to create a video sharing platform, like YouTube, built using a microservices architecture could have services for video uploading, processing, and delivery, as well as authentication and notifications. The frontend could use React.js, and the backend API gateway could be built using Python and Django, with each service developed and deployed independently.

Make the Project Video Duration shorter

Another guideline that we are asking our creators to follow is to make the project video duration shorter. One way you can achieve this is by showing the end result of a simple task, rather than showing the whole process of doing that task. These tasks can be any tasks that are easy enough for the users to do on their own, such as how to authenticate or other repetitive tasks. By keeping the project short and concise, learners will be able to grasp the concepts more easily and apply them to real-world projects.

Prepare content for the tutorial (structure) before starting recording

Make sure you are well prepared for your sessions before you start your recording. It is recommended to follow the structure in the outline and focus on the learning outcomes. Make sure to not spend too much time doing a particular part or debugging an issue. This will make tutorials unnecessarily long. 

STEP 4: Submit Your Project Videos and Resources

Once you have recorded all the videos, upload them in the Google Drive folder, along with the project resources, including the source code, slides, or any other material used in project creation, and share the URL with our project creation manager. 

Next, the manager will do the quality checks and get back to you if any changes are required. Once the quality checks are done, it will upload your project on Education Ecosystem and make them publicly available. 

You can earn a good amount of money by creating projects on Education Ecosystem. If you are interested in creating a project, please send an email to [email protected] or join us on Slack and send a message to Petar Janković.
