CreativeLive attracted nearly 150,000 people from 178 countries for a recent week-long Photoshop course. All together, students have consumed more than 10 million hours of free content on the CreativeLive platform. CreativeLive is now airing 15 classes per month, compared to four per month last year. Salmi explained that what distinguishes CreativeLive from competitors like Lynda.com is that its content is shot in front of an audience and streamed live. Users can pay $100 to watch a class again after the initial airing, but the live experience is interactive, dynamic and recalibrated based on students’ responses. β€œIt becomes an event,” Salmi said. Watch Salmi explain the advantage of live in our not-at-all live video interview (at the url below), and how he envisions CreativeLive building an always-on network of live classes.
