Hi, my name is Nishit. I am an Acquisition Editor with Packt, a Developer Skills Platform. We have published nearly 6000 books and videos so far, providing IT professionals with the actionable knowledge they need to get the job done.
We are currently planning on video courses on various technologies and are looking for professionals who can author the course.
As an author, you would be required to do the following - Develop the course outline for the course and record the course (simultaneous screen-cast + voice over).
A video course could range from 2-4 hours in running length, following a modular approach. Each course would be further divided into sections, depending on the topic being touched and the sections would then be further divided into individual videos of about 5 - 8 minutes in running length.
2 months of production time for each course will be given.
If you create a 2 courses then we will pay you an advance of $2000($1000 per course) and once your course is published you'd receive royalties of 16%.
We can also set up a quick Skype call to discuss things over.
