Why DataCamp?

Behind every great DataCamp course are the passionate folks who built it. We decided early on that the best way for us to maximize value for our learners is to build courses in partnership with top companies and experts in the data science and analytics community. We've worked with with the biggest names in data science, including package creators, published authors, and thought leaders from industry and academia.

Who makes a great DataCamp instructor?

DataCamp instructors are subject matter experts in data science and analytics with a passion for teaching. They take great pleasure in demystifying complex topics, and making them accessible to beginners through clear communication and storytelling. Although we work closely with our instructors to support them throughout the course development process, they take ownership over their work and take pride in the details.

Who will have access to my course?

DataCamp reaches more than 12 million learners in over 180 countries. Every one of these people will have access to the first chapter of your course for free, so they can try before they buy. The remainder of your course will be available to thousands of loyal DataCamp subscribers who pay a low monthly subscription for access to our entire course library.

How do I apply to become an instructor, and what's the audition process like?

You can start by checking out our current Content Wishlist! This is maintained and regularly updated with the content we're currently hiring for.

How long does it take to create a course?

The amount of time required for course development varies depending on the individual course and planned structure. As a rule of thumb, we suggest you set aside 10-15 hours per week over 10-12 weeks to get everything done.

What are some other opportunities to create content with DataCamp?

While courses have been our primary focus, we have additional opportunities that you can explore with us, including projects, blogs, live training, and much more! 

What is the compensation for creating a course with DataCamp?

We have two different compensation models, which include Rev-Share and Content Completion. The compensation model is pre-determined by the content type and is discussed in more detail during the contracting stage of the process if selected as the instructor for the course.  It is important to note that compensation for our courses varies by course and takes a number of factors into account. 

Is it required to teach in English, which is the primary language used on DataCamp?

At this time, all of our courses are created in English, however as of September 2023, DataCamp has prioritized providing content in Spanish to improve and expand accessibility to our non-English speaking learners.
