What brought you to teaching on Cybrary:

“Cybrary brings like-minded individuals together. I have used Cybrary before and I was happy with the results that I received. There are many courses to choose from with different leveled skill sets. With the short videos that come in bulk content, I was able to learn useful information at my own pace. More importantly, I was able to learn this information from an individual who had experience in the field. Then I thought to myself, “Wouldn’t it be cool if I can contribute to this platform as well?”

I have taught virtually before and prepared class material for students but never on a level as mass as Cybrary. Cybrary has millions of users and I want to be able to share useful information with millions of people. When I saw that Cybrary had openings for new professors I jumped at the opportunity and I was excited when they welcomed me on board. I was even more happy with the fact that being a Cybrary professor allows me to have access to all of the content on Cybrary. Not to mention I have a super flexible schedule that gives me enough time to prepare course materials and record lectures. The Cybrary community on discord is very helpful and enthusiastic as well. Everybody was very open and welcoming during my first month on the team. I am happy that I can now contribute to the growing network of information Cybrary has to offer.”
