Rouxbe Cooking School is an online cooking school that teaches home cooks, culinary students, and culinary professionals to become better and more confident cooks.
We believe that millions of motivated cooks have been misled to believe that recipes alone will make them better cooks. This is simply not true.

Few seem to realize that learning the techniques behind recipes is the most effective way to learn to cook: the way the pros learn. We created Rouxbe to disrupt this thinking and take a stand to help the world eat better.

Scrapbooking is a passion that all three of us have shared for a long time. It is something that has brought us together on countless occasions and strengthened our family bond. The idea for Kiwi Lane started in 2008 while we were scrapbooking together. We were complaining to each other that most of the samples that we found in magazines and online were for one-picture, one-page layouts and depended heavily on expensive embellishments to accomplish their look. It was this frustration that led us to develop a new style of scrapbooking that provided endless inspiration and simplified the scrapbooking process. We called this technique “Framing,” and it changed the way that we scrapbooked, allowing us to add as many pictures as we wanted and end up with a beautiful, balanced, professional layout every time.

There’s nothing more fun and fulfilling than teaching kids science. My company, Supercharged Science, which provides educational science curriculum programs to homeschool families and teachers, evolved through time as I worked at NASA, taught mechanical engineering at Cal Poly, flew airplanes, launched rockets, and help design engines for a very special F-15. For the past 13 years, I have taught parents, educators and kids through my passion for learning and made over a thousand science video demonstrations that cover hands-on science activities, experiments, and projects. My best-selling homeschool science curriculum programs get kids excited about science and prepared for the real world before they even have to fill out a college application.

Brenda Sue Lansdowne (B'sue) started with $20.00 and a dream: 25 years and a ton of experiences later, she is a purveyor of US made findings, designer finishes, vintage glass at http://www.bsueboutiques.com. Her jewelry-making techniques are the result of many years of trial and error. In the beginning, she began by picking flea markets and antiques malls, and eventually served as an antiques dealer specializing in vintage jewelry. The love of old jewelry convinced her that she should design her own vintage-inspired jewelry which she calls "Five and Dime Style". B'sue found her true niche when the journey lead her to the internet. Her videos offer instruction on how you can use brass stampings, filigree, and mixed media jewelry products to jump-start your own creative life.
Welcome to Zoic Nation! We're a group dedicated to having fun and spreading the word about parkour around central Florida. Anyone who has been involved in the online parkour "community" before knows that an absurd amount of time and energy is spent trying to tie down exactly what constitutes "parkour" or "free-running" or "tricking." This is not what we do.
If you can tolerate the differences of others while still helping people improve, if you can teach and be taught at the same time, and if you will play with us, then we really want you to come out and PLAY with us. That is all that this group is about: organizing, advertising, and playing! Join us and bring your friends!
Curious about teaching on Curious?
We started Curious because we wanted to help the world's best teachers (of anything) become entrepreneurs, and reach a global audience. We really believe it is possible for teachers to provide great instruction to students halfway around the world, and make good money doing it. If you are great at teaching something, keep reading to see if the Curious platform is right for you.
Why do teachers love Curious?
- It all starts with the lessons. At Curious, lessons are short, fun and engaging. They cause the students to lean forward, interact with other students and (gasp) the teacher, and actually do what you are teaching them.
- We turn teachers into entrepreneurs. Our platform allows you to create a family of lessons, group them into series, and add related products or services. You benefit from everything Curious knows about how to structure and sell lessons most effectively--so you can focus on creating great content and connecting with your students.
- Brand building, not just lesson building. The Curious platform was built to allow each teacher to create an unique learning brand. Students at Curious love all kinds of teaching styles, and appreciate quirky or fresh approaches that can lead to a cult following.
- A qualified audience comes built-in. How many hours have you spent wondering why nobody is finding your brilliant instructional videos? Curious has a built-in community of passionate lifelong learners eager to interact with you. No need to worry about crude comments or disrespectful students—everybody is authenticated, and there to learn.
- Build it yourself. Curious offers a powerful, easy-to-use platform that allows you to create, design, edit, share and promote your video-based lessons on Curious, as well as your own blog or website.

Share via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, YouTube, your blog, or carrier pigeon that you're a Curious teacher. As students enroll in your lessons, engage with them so that they master the material and want to keep learning from you.
- Grow your students and lessons. Create series of lessons to teach more in-depth subjects. Sell more advanced lessons to your new student base and ask them what they want to learn next.
