Every day, life-changing content is consumed on the Novum Learning platform. This is made possible by instructors who are passionate about imparting their knowledge and students who are dedicated to learning. Novum Learning is founded on core values centred around this exchange of knowledge. We are committed to empowering highly knowledgeable everyday experts to provide an amazing learning experience for a global community of students.
It is up to all of us here at Novum Learning to live these values: instructors, students, and the Novum Learning team. When we live these values, we continue to create a thriving, sustainable marketplace where anyone can learn online and have a great time doing it.
Who Forms our Community?
Students – Our students come to the Novum Learning platform to have an engaging learning experience where they have access a variety of topics from experts who practice these skills on an every-day basis.
Instructors – Our instructors are inspiring professionals who love to teach. They come to the Novum Learning platform for the opportunity to impart their knowledge and impact hundreds of thousands of students worldwide.
What are the Ground-Rules?
1) Don’t spam
Students come to Novum Learning to have a safe and engaging learning experience and instructors teach for the love of sharing knowledge. Instructors: Once you are on the Novum Learning platform, don’t try to sell other products or spam each other with requests and offers.
2) Don’t game the system
- For instructors: Don’t direct Novum Learning students away from the Novum Learning platform, push the envelope on what is and is not allowed, or search for loopholes in policies. We want our community of students to grow, as does every other instructor. When you game the system, the whole community loses out on having a common pool of engaged students who want to learn.
- For students: Do not harass instructors, ask for free coupons, or offer reviews in exchange for things. The community relies on a healthy interaction between students and instructors, as well as honest student feedback to understand which courses are right for them.
3) Keep it professional
Our instructors actively collaborate and communicate with each other, and students and instructors have healthy and vibrant discussions through the course-taking experience. We ask that, in connection with those relationships, you are respectful, honest, and considerate with students, instructors, and Novum Learning personnel. Be a positive member of the Novum Learning community. Never ask for personal information, or post unoriginal content as your own.
4) If you see something, say something
If anything you see or experience ever seems like a violation, or you are unsure about a policy, just let us know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Someone on our team will review every report, answer your questions, and determine whether there has been a violation of our policies.
We’re here to help you understand our policies and be successful on the Novum Learning platform.
