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.

I personally think that this article of Spam should be part of the training on the left hand side as a link titled Spam, so new members can see it straight away. I was totally unaware of the Open Education Project. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. I have saved this link in my WA project folder for future reference as my website develops.

Would it be view as inappropriate if I were to ask for help (like if there is a video person here who can help me crate videos?

Also, why can't we copy from our own blogs an post elsewhere? Just asking.

You could ask a member like Leoemery who is great with video. Just don't EXPECT him to create a video for you for free :)

Some people have taken posts from their own sites and posted them here as blogs word for word. The problem is, WA blogs are part of the Google index and it is considered duplicate content.

Before signing up for WA I was reading reviews and the only negative reviews concerned exactly this subject here where members got banned and they really weren't sure why they got banned or said they had no warning. Some of these members had been here for several years, so it seems like these rules should be posted up front somewhere where new members can read them. I have already seen blog posts that I thought were very good but now realize some of these rules were broken and I'm sure the people had no clue they were breaking the rules. I love what I see so far and would hate to get banned because of something I did not know.

Very few people get banned. If you behave properly and exercise common sense you'll be fine :)

Been here over a year and just read this thanks to another member. I just posted several blogs and I think I broke the rules. Correcting immediately.

This update is much clearer about the dos and don'ts of WA, but I found it a month late, accidentally while trying to answer someone's question - it should be somewhere prominent or issued to us in our account page.

Also the word 'spam' might be too narrow, as the page 'spam is a no no' is relevant to everyone, way outside the context of familiar 'spam'.

I'm here 6 months and learning this stuff for the first time!

I have a question? This is new training right? So why doesn't my set-up look like Kyle's. It's a little hard me to follow because I am not seeing what he is showing in the images he is providing.
Send Kyle a PM about this. It needs to be updated.

Thanks Shawn, I appreciate your reply and will do just that. For a minute there I thought I was going a little nuts while trying to follow his training. I am sure it will be much easier if I am updated.

I totally agree! I stumbled upon this reading a member's blog. Just wondering is this somewhere obvious when you join WA? I think this community is amazing.

iJared Premium Top 100 Follow Me

DawnaO Premium Follow Me

iJared Premium Top 100 Follow Me
Good Question.

I am guessing when I say that they are free, or paid for pictures available on the web.
