Selling my course?

Jump to solution

I've been working on my Canvas course outline for over a year now. I am wondering if I am able to sell this outline and course to others using a website such as Teachers Pay Teachers?

Hi Scott,

The answer to your question is...  it depends.  There isn't any contractual reason you cannot profit from a Canvas course per the agreement your institution signed with Instructure or in the agreement implicit in using the Free for Teachers Canvas instance.  Whether or not you can sell your course if you created it in your institution's instance of Canvas is governed by your contract with that institution.  K12 faculty contracts tend to be more permissive than do institutions of higher education.  In any case you are best off asking whoever your supervisor is where you work and where you created your course.  Hope that helps...
