Can I teach on any topic?

Sensitive or otherwise inappropriate topics or language

As a global learning platform with learners ranging from casual hobbyists to professional enterprise customers, we must take into consideration many sensitivities when evaluating content. 

We will examine not only the kind of topic under discussion, but also how those topics are presented. When providing instruction on a sensitive subject area, ensure that all associated course materials treat that subject with care. Avoid language and imagery which is inflammatory, offensive or otherwise insensitive.

Content for young people

MajestiX Studio AcademyZpresso is not currently set up to support underage learners. Persons under the age of consent (for example, 13 in the US or 16 in Ireland) may not apply to be instructors. Those under 18 but above the age of consent may use the services only if a parent or guardian opens their account, handles any enrollments, and manages their account usage. 

As such, please ensure any subject matter oriented towards young students is clearly marketed to parents and guardians who will be supervising their learning.  

How to report abuse

We reserve the right to add to and modify this list at any time. If you see a topic that you believe should not be on the platform, raise it for review by clicking filling in a Contact Form with the specific URL of the course.


Do I have to pay any fees in order to become an instructor?

Requirements for the course

You can upload your course in the following formats:


YouTube: Except for your video sales letter, the rest of your course should be uploaded as UNLISTED onto your YouTube channel. You'll add your YouTube URL in the place provided. Only your course students who paid will be able to view these videos.


Vimeo: Same principle applies, if you can upload your video on Vimeo and make it that  only the people with the link can see it, you should do it that  way. Making it public will only make people not buy the course because  they've got free access to your videos.


File: You can upload a file you want to make available to your students. In this file you can have links to your Facebook, and other social media as well as anything you want your students to learn.


Document: You can upload your eBook in PDF format or you can upload a TXT file too if you wish.


Image: If you have an image that you want to share with your students, you can upload jpg, jpeg or png.


Iframe: If you're an iFrame person, you can also upload your iFrame embed code into your curriculum.
