Frequently Asked Questions

Who makes a great DataCamp instructor?

DataCamp instructors are subject matter experts in data science with a passion for teaching. They take great pleasure in demystifying complex topics, making them accessible to beginners through clear communication and storytelling. Although we work closely with our instructors to support them throughout the course development process, they take ownership over their work and take pride in the details.


Who will have access to my course?

DataCamp reaches more than 1 million learners in over 180 countries. Every one of these people will have access to the first chapter of your course for free, so they can try before they buy. The remainder of your course will be available to thousands of loyal DataCamp subscribers who pay a low monthly subscription for access to our entire course library.


How does a new instructor get started?

One of our Curriculum Leads will work with you to develop a short audition video. This gives you an opportunity to show us your stuff and get a feel for what it’s like to work with us. Likewise, it gives us an opportunity to see you in action and understand how you work.


How do I get paid?

We have a simple revenue sharing system based on course completions. Every time a DataCamp subscriber completes your course, you earn a royalty. These royalties accumulate over time and are paid out quarterly. While average monthly earnings per course are in the $1-2K range, our top instructors are making over $150K per year.


How long does it take to create a course?

The amount of time required for course development varies considerably based on experience and how much of the content already exists in another form. As a rule of thumb, we suggest you set aside 7-10 hours a week for 10-12 weeks to get everything done.


How will DataCamp help?

Everyone at DataCamp is invested in making your course a success. You will work closely with one of our Curriculum Leads to determine the topic and scope of your course, then to produce a detailed outline for the content. Once the vision for your course is clear, we’ll partner you with one of our brilliant Content Developers. This person will help see your course through to completion, providing in-depth feedback on your course content, acting as a sounding board for ideas, and (most importantly) being an advocate for our students. Once your course launches, we share detailed anonymized data on how students are engaging with your material, so that you can improve it over time.
