How do we add an avatar for a student account?
It’s based on http://gravatar.com — so basically use your same WordPress login email on Gravatar.com and WordPress looks it up there. As far as we know it’s not actually uploaded onto the PluralityResource.org site.
How do we rate or review courses?
The Reviews panel on the course page — if y’all are students in the course, there is a Write a Review link. Here’s a walk-through of how to do this.
How do we leave lesson feedback?
We created a walk-through with images here, but in short you can scroll to the bottom of each lesson (past “Continue”) and there is a lesson comment form.
How do we participate in the student forum?
The link is right under your progress bars on the student course overview page. There’s a walk-through of how to get to it here.
Why isn’t everything on the site free?
See the note below if you’re wondering about the $10,000 courses.
Teachers put in a lot of time and work to create the courses, and in this world that type of labor precludes earning money, qualifying for benefits, may have a cost in stamina & spoons, and there’s the upkeep of housing, internet connection, etc. for the instructors. Please pay what you can for those that are sliding-scale, and respect the instructor’s valuation of their materials. Of course, if y’all think they’re not charging enough, and they give you& the option to tip them or donate to them, or follow them on Patreon, etc. please feel free to boost others in the community and help them meet their life expenses however y’all can.
One thing we, as the site administrators, want to avoid doing (we can’t promise we can do this forever!) is to allow instructors to put their courses up for free to the instructors. So our own course earnings (The Crisses) are helping to pay for the site software, server, and our own internet expenses, etc. We also have a Patreon, and are very lucky to have ongoing support from several employed singular folk as well as some plural systems that keeps this site going.
Why is there a $10,000 course on the site?
That’s not really a $10,000USD course. Sorry about that. We needed to find a way to lock new students out from joining group coaching pilot courses after the cut-off without hiding the course and chancing that enrolled students won’t be able to find the course on the site. So it’s just a way to discourage folk from trying to sign up to the course. Once the course is out of pilot and ready for general release, the price will be changed and enrollments re-opened for self-led learning.
