A Brief About Knewio

One interesting feature of Knewio that sets it apart from other eLearning platforms is that tutors can earn according to the number of followers they have. The more followers you have, the more money you can make.

Knewio has an income forecast tool where tutors can see their average income based on the number of followers. The tool will also show how much subscription price you need to charge to attain the income goal. The earnings figure excludes the income from tips and paid messages.

The Purpose of the Project

Knewio is an eLearning platform that works on subscriptions where learners can buy subscriptions from tutors and access exclusive perks. 

The platform allows teachers to sell their educational content on monthly or yearly subscriptions. The minimum fee is £4.99, and the maximum has no limits. The students will be charged monthly or yearly, and the fee will be automatically credited to the teacher’s account. Payouts will be processed within 5 working days. Teachers will be able to create pay-per-view live-stream events.
