If you love to teach students and also want to share your knowledge all over India. Then Unacademy is the best platform that you can check out. But from March 2020, Unacademy changed their process to be an educator on their platform. Here in this article, I have shared How to be an Unacademy Educator completely new process after March 2020.
But before dive into the deep, let’s discuss some important things which you should know before joining Unacademy as an Educator.
Unacademy is India’s one of the leading Educational platform available online. There are other brands like Byus is also available but Unacademy is more popular. Because it has both Paid and Free versions. That’s why students love to prefer it more.
One of the best thing about Unacademy is it give a chance to anyone who wants to teach on their platform. And they also pay really well for it. So if you are a freelance educator then it would be a great chance for you to be on that platform and share your knowledge and earn a handsome amount of money each month.
Teaching Process of Unacademy:
Before March 2020, Unacademy had a recorded class option. With that, anyone can teach on the platform with the recorded class which was really great. But after March 2020, they completely changed the process and launched 100% Live class on the platform.
So if you want to join their platform as an Educator, you have to take Live classes from there. So let me you tell you in the beginning, if you are not comfortable with Live thing then please don’t try this at all. Because you need to take class live on their platform and at least 20 Class each month to have an active educator status which really meant a lot.
Types of Educator on Unacademy:
There are basically two types of educators on Unacademy.
- Special Class Educator.
- Plus Member Educator.
Here in this post, we are going to talk about Special Class Educator. But believe me, if you can able to Plus Educator then you will be awesome. Now discuss the process to be a Special Educator, we will discuss the process Plus Educator later on another post.
What is Special Educator?
Special Educator is one of the types of Educator on Unacademy whom class can be watched anyone for free. So if you become a Special Educator then your classes can be watched for free. But don’t worry you be paid for your hard work and they will pay you a good amount.

After downloading the app, You need to create your account with your email id and name. After confirming the phone number and email. The main process begins which is a bit tricky.
Creating 3 Min Demo:
After creating an account, you need to create a 3 Min demo session on the platform with your smartphone itself. Here you need to upload either PDF, PPT, or Handwritten notes. And you need to describe or you can say to need to teach for 3mins using those notes. But make sure you follow these processes before submitting the demo.
After submitting the demo of 3 mins class, the system will show you on which number you are in according to the waiting state. Like You are behind 500 people or like that.
After creating a Demo, two things can happen to you.
- Your demo can be rejected. In that case, you can reply again with the instruction they will give you. But it recommended following these steps to get selected the first time.
- The second thing is the good news that you are selected. Yeah!!! But don’t be so happy here because a lot is waiting for you now.
After you are Demo selection, you need to submit your KYC documents like Aadhaar Card, PAN Card, and Cancelled Check or Bank Passbook first page to them. Then, the team, Unacademy will verify these documents. So make sure, an educator needs to more than 18 years with these mention documents ready.

Create 5 Lessons:
After your KYC process and after all the information filled on the platform, you need to upload 5 demo classes of 15mins on their platform with similar kind of notes you shared with them while 3 mins demo test.
But please make sure in these 5 lessons, You have to confident while teaching and voice also matter a lot. So record these classes in a really clam atmosphere with less background noise. As you are recording these classes from your smartphone so make you use earphones better audio quality.
Because if you can’t able to perform here in a good way then becoming an Unacademy Educator for you will impossible. Because you will not able to any new account on the platform again because your KYC is verified with them. So if you fail here then the journey ends here for you.
So after you upload those 5 classes on their platform, you need to tell them about it with their awesome Educator support team.
