Develop a Course
Professionals with expertise in any subject can submit an application to teach a course in the Leadership Portal. There are two types of courses available: Self-paced and virtual. There are two options for publishing a course: Instructor Built and SHINSHURI Built.
Instructor Built: The instructor submits existing documents and materials to SHINSHURI Foundation for consideration. Upon approval of content, messaging, and pricing, the instructor builds the courseware product and all digital content using our FlexLearn Development Standards. SHINSHURI Foundation reviews final courseware product and releases for members and students in the Leadership Portal.
SHINSHURI Built: SHINSHURI works with Instructor to gather all existing documents and materials. SHINSHURI Instructional Design Team builds the FlexLearn courseware product and releases for members and students in the Leadership Portal.
