Is developing eLearning courses suitable for crowdfunding?

Discussion created by graeme on May 27, 2015

I recently started a crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo ( to raise funds to put towards developing six 1-1.5 hour ArcGIS Pro eLearning video courses.


I was not certain that it would take off, but a number of people told me it was a great idea, and I thought I was offering some pretty good perks for any contributions made (e.g. 40-67% discounts on both the new and existing courses), so I was quite hopeful of putting a dent in my target early.


Only a few contributions have trickled in so far, and I am wondering if anyone in the ArcGIS community has experience to share about crowdfunding campaigns they have been involved in whether ArcGIS related or not?
