If you have exceptional writing skills, expertise in education or e-learning and would like to share your knowledge with a growing education audience, we’d love to hear from you.
Please take some time to review this entire page — it should answer any question you have about what kind of content we’re looking for and how the submission process works.
Need-to-knows for Every Post We Publish
Successful guest contributions are well written, comprehensive, data-driven, and interesting posts that teach our readers something important about the world of education. We mainly look for articles covering anything related to online learning and education, education technology, e-safety and any other aspects of education like teaching/learning strategies, latest research and developments.
We also look for a few things in everything we publish:
- Original concepts, compelling arguments, and high-quality writing. We will not republish anything that’s been published elsewhere.
- Proper attribution of data, quotations, and outside content referenced in the article.
- No more than one link to your company’s website in the body of the post.
- Useful images or graphics to enhance the content.
- Your author bio with a short brief about your background.
How to become a guest contributor
If you are interested in publishing guest articles on a one off or more regular basis, we offer different options.
You can get in touch with us and we will set up your individual author profile with your photo (minimum 200×200 pixels) and bio if you like. You can add information about yourself and use it to promote your work elsewhere. We can provide author access, which enables you to publish your articles after editorial approval.
You can ask for your author profile to be removed at any time and we will take it down, but your articles will still remain available on our blog. However, they are subject to editorial review and may be edited or updated where necessary.
Ideally we’re looking for articles with at least 800 words. The style can vary, see examples here:
- Research / Analysis: If you are an educator or researcher yourself or you want to share research evidence/an analysis you consider important, please share it in your article with relevant data/infographics and references. Share your valuable insights with the community in writing and send it over/publish it on your author profile. These posts should include your collected data, actionable takeaways, and thorough descriptions of the process.
- Canonical: These articles should provide in-depth and hands-on tactical guidance that is supported by relevant examples, original quotes, and current data. When readers finish this type of post, they should be able to plan their procedure of implementation or come up with their own strategy.
- Tutorials: These posts rely heavily on screen shots, an infographic or SlideShare created by the author. Usually, they feature a few paragraphs of introduction, the embedded media itself, and a brief description of each section, e.g. for each graphic add a short paragraph providing background information. Here you can display how to use an educational app or software for example.
These three formats are the most common, however, we do also publish posts that may not fall into any of those categories, if we find them useful for our audience.
What We Won’t Accept
- Anything that’s already been covered before. Please do a search of our site before submitting/publishing your articles.
- Anything that doesn’t contain any valuable information and only serves the purpose of link-building.
- Anything that focuses on only promoting your company or organization.
- Anything that’s offensive, inaccurate or copied.
- Anything that only promotes certain opinions without any grounds to stand on.
