Dear Sangwon,

Thank you for your comment. It addresses two very important points in our idea.
1. Knowledge Partners, as defined within the scope of Impact College are individuals/organizations that already specialize in one or more skills within their scope of work and work with us to create online courses that they can then disseminate to a larger audience through our platform or to their existing users, thus bolstering any in-person training they have. The depth of this curriculum will correspond to what is required to get the job done. eg: How to use email to raise money for you nonprofit? We are only partnering with organizations who are experts in their field instead of positioning ourselves as the repository of all knowledge.
In terms of cost, all courses we create are delivered at no cost. Once a student has taken the free course, they are welcome to pay for an advanced course that will come with a certificate. On our part, we do not charge for courses that are not certified and add no tangible value to a student's resume. Second, Knowledge Partners, who use the "white-label" option are doing so because they already have a target audience in mind to deliver their content to. If they choose to share it with a larger audience and charge them for it, they will have to justify why someone must pay for that content.
With respect to the demos. They are only illustrative of what the platform can do. They do not represent actual content or courses. We wanted to show that courses can be paid for. We are currently working with 3 of our nonprofit clients to build out the Google Adwords course, which will be our first.
Hope this answers your questions and do let me know if you need any more clarifications. Thank you, D
