Introducing the next evolution of Wealthy Affiliate...

Wealthy Affiliate - The Open Education Project!

First off, I want to explain what the Open Education Project (OEP) is and how it will impact you and how you can benefit from it.

Over the years we have been working towards a community of sharing and engagement. We have accomplished that in many senses, however our training has lacked for many reasons.

One, people that have very little incentive to share are unlikely to share. They are going to focus on improving their existing business, not offer training to others. Incentive comes in many forms, and with OEP you are going to get credited and rewarded for creating training.

We are a community, we are not two people!

As a community we all have something to offer, share, and contribute to help others. As a community, collectively we can learn independently at a much greater scale by contributing, interacting, creating, and networking as a group.

You are now going to have the ability to interact within other people's training, offer feedback and get help. Instant notifications and the delivery of new training via your friends and on a global scale is going to lead to much more efficient education, as well as in personal growth.

If you are not interested in creating training, that is fine. You are not required to. However, if you do create training you will have the ability to become a controlling factor within the Wealthy Affiliate system by earning ambassador status, which will we get into more detail later.

So, here we are! Wealthy Affiliate - The Open Education Project.

This is "iteration 1" of many and over the coming days, weeks, months and years, you are going to see OEP shape into the best education platform anywhere!

In this training, I am going to walk you through the MUST KNOW components of Wealthy Affiliate, OEP. This should help you acquire a solid understanding of how to use the system, interact within it, get support, make the best use of it, as well as earn revenue from it.

?? Is there a "forum" still as described in the OEP training.. guessing that was replaced by chat and other forms of Q/A. Also, the Keyword lists that are said to be delivered regularly for niche ideas, etc. Last one is 2013 - those are also a thing of the past? Be nice to get this training updated when possible so it reflects what is current.

Seems like you've made the same assumptions that I did. I too look forward to the updates.

Wow... The rules are new? I never seen this anywhere in this platform before. I broke rule 8 before this was posted. But it is never product-promotion related, just out of passion. Guess I need to take down those postings soon.

I do not seem to agree on rule 3 -
Do not copy content from WA and post it somewhere else on the Internet. This includes copying your own blog content and putting it on your website.

Why don't I have the rights to my own content? I just cannot understand the rationale behind this. Well, since this is a rule then just need to follow. Hope someone can enlighten me.

If you use what you have published at WA, you will make trouble to yourself, Google will see it as a duplicate content. So better avoid doing this. But I think in these rules they want to say primarily the material presented in lessons and tutorials, do nor replicate it.

I finally found the rules. I have infringed some of them mainly out of ignorance. I hope to improve in the near future.

I had to grin at this. I'm well known among friends for saying "Common sense is remarkably uncommon".

I will treat this as my work place, thank you for bringing this to my attention Kyle&Carson; and the community.

I'm glad this was brought to my attention about the #14 of no faith or religious base posts, so if I wanted to do my niche on books the bible is that then allowed?
PhoenixFlame Premium Top 50 Follow Me
That is an interesting niche I would want to look more into. :) I like the idea. :) I look forward to reading it someday. :)

Hey! I found out to day by Robert boomergp08 post or blog on this day Tuesday May 21, 2015 that the rules at WA are very important to older members as well as newbies. "WA Rules - Wealthy Affiliate Rules & Regulations" are an every day thing that all members deal with on a daily bases. I had no idea these rules exited till I seen the posting. Thank you so much Robert for pointing this one out to me, it is very much appreciated.

Yes, Timard! They are! I've been here for a few years now and don't recall ever reading them. I was glad for the chance to read them and book mark them! Alanna

This is an excellent idea and method of share/helping other people to learn the system here at WA. I am glad I was referred to this set of lessons as I didn't know about the open education system or what it meant. Thank you very much.
