San Francisco, California (PRWEB) June 21, 2008
Revoluminary Inc. (http://www.revoluminary.com), a rapidly growing social network for online tutoring, today announced a new $3 per hour flat pricing plan for its virtual classroom. As part of its new plan, Revoluminary has also eliminated its minimum class price policy so instructors can offer classes at whatever rate they prefer.
"Our goal is to get everyone everywhere tutoring each other on the internet. Revoluminary makes tutoring and learning online easy, and supports all subjects, from Algebra to Zoology. Our new pricing plan saves instructors money and makes using Revoluminary even easier", said founder and CEO Peter Ackerson.
Joining Revoluminary's tutoring community is completely free. The site allows anyone to list classes they want to teach and to search for classes available from others. Instructors on Revoluminary have the ability to promote their classes by displaying their availability schedules, listing their academic and professional credentials and posting 30-second video ads on the classroom description page.
The $3 plan replaces an earlier commission based fee structure. Under the new plan, instructors can create as many classes as they want and advertise them for free on Revoluminary. Every class price posted will include the Revoluminary fee so that students clearly see the final price of the class. "The nominal fee allows Revoluminary to cover our costs and still provide a clean classroom with no advertising to distract our students", said co-founder Max Prilutsky. Regardless of the price charged by the tutors, all classes will be able to take full advantage of Revoluminary's features such as its live audio-video feed, interactive whiteboard and file sharing tools.
