Experts and Time Tokens
Experts on Skilltree are well-known industry people who are the best in their area, and many times they are at the cutting edge of the research & application of given technology. They can be content producers, teachers or advisors of a course. They can also decide to endorse a course or its certificate, thus elevating its value.
When a student signs up for a paid course, they receive at least one Time Token that they can use to reserve 30 minutes of a teacher’s or an expert’s time.
This works even if it’s a pre-recorded course. This feature makes Skilltree courses real masterclasses, because it ensures direct, face-to-face interaction with a teacher or expert.
Experts will be able to issue additional tokens that can be bought by students (or others) to book an appointment with the expert.
