FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1How does Xpert work? 

Every class starts with a petition. The purpose of a petition is simple, it helps us know what classes our users want to take. Any user can create a petition for the celebrity instructor of their choice. After a petition is published, potential students sign up to show their support. The more the demand, the more likely it is for the class to happen. Only when a threshold of sign ups is reached (Usually 10,000), is the class considered to be made for the platform. Once the threshold of sign ups is reached, we use the petition as a weapon in our effort to influence the celebrity to teach this class. Of course, the class is dependent on the celebrity's approval and availability. And even when agreed to, the class will not happen overnight as it takes time to develop, film, and edit the high quality courses we offer. When the classes go live, those who signed up are notified and begin their learning journey.  

2When will the classes start?

The start of these any class on Xpert is dependent on the approval and availability of the Xpert. In our effort to influence the celebrity, we run a petition to determine the demand for his/her class. Once the threshold of sign ups is reached, a celebrity gets the green light to make their Xpert class. Of course, this will not happen overnight as it takes time to develop, film, and edit the high quality courses we offer. When the classes go live, those who signed up are notified and begin their learning journey.

3What is the format of the classes?

Classes at Xpert are an immersive online experience. The syllabus for any class on Xpert is decided by the instructor. Each class includes pre-recorded video content, a class workbook with documents supporting the video class, assignments as well as some activities that you may or may not take on. The videos are viewable at any time and may be paused, fast forwarded, rewound or re watched as many times as you would like. Students may also utilize our blog for class discussions to share their thoughts, upload their performances and provide feedback on others' work.

4How long are the classes?

Each class would be a total of 2 - 5+ hours of video content, which will be split up into individual video lessons according to narrower topics in the class. In addition to the lesson videos, each course has a downloadable PDF workbook that you can use to supplement the videos and a student group that you can use to exchange feedback and discuss the lessons.

 5Will I be certified?  

Students who complete the entire course will receive a letter of completion (Downloadable PDF) signed by the instructor. The certificate would state your participation in the online class taught by the instructor on the specific topic. 

 6Is there any specific time frame that the class needs to be completed within?

The classes have no finish time. You may do the class at your own convenience. On completion of the class, you get a Certificate that states you completed the class.  

 7What will I learn in the classes?

The syllabus of the classes is decided by the instructor. The instructor takes inputs from the petition sign ups wherein applicants write what they would really like to be taught in class. The entire lesson plan will be on the class page as soon as the class is live.  

 8What if a petition does not reach its threshold?

If any petition does not reach its threshold of signups, the effort that the celebrity would have put in is not justified. Therefore, the actual production of the class will be delayed until the threshold of signups (usually 10,000) is received.  

 9What is the enrollment fee for any class?

Classes on Xpert will be free of cost. However, some lessons in those classes that are of premium quality, would be locked and would have a certain access fee that a student will need to pay to access it.  

 10How will I know when the classes start?

Everyone who signs the Pre-Enrollment form to reserve their seat in the class will be notified as soon as the class is in production stage and deemed to go live in the near future. As soon as it goes live, all students will be alerted by email.  



It all started with a dream. A dream to learn acting from Bollywood superstar, Kangana Ranaut. A dream of an ambitious Indian millennial, Aarti Kumar. Aarti was a makeup artist by profession, but an aspiring actress by passion. What we saw in Aarti is common across all our youth today. A passion and fire to succeed, but frustration at the lack of guidance. So we thought what if Aarti could learn acting from Kangana? What if we ALL could learn from the best for FREE ? So we built Xpert & took it upon ourselves to do the impossible. To turn celebrities to teachers and fans to students. Through Xpert, anyone can request/ support an online class from any celebrity. Once a class receives significant support we move towards producing it and making it available to all for FREE.
