Brett Chesney General, News

For the past 15 years, ClickBank has been the go-to place for content creators and self-publishers to sell their digital education products, connect with expert affiliates and build long-term success. And today, ClickBank’s support of online education reaches a whole new level.

Courseware . . . Meet ClickBank

There is a new trend in the online education market, often referred to as Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs). Over recent months and years, MOOCs have proved to us that learning is indeed a lifelong process, and one for which there is a healthy demand. And ClickBank is committed to meeting this demand head on with today’s announcement representing a first and important step.

Introducing, Chris Pirillo U

Today, in partnership with tech enthusiast Chris Pirillo, we are thrilled to announce the launch of Chris Pirillo U (CPU), the first independent e-learning platform backed by ClickBank. Chris Pirillo U is an online education site that at its time of launch, features dozens of MOOCs, and over 2,000 individual lessons from several top courseware companies – all handpicked by Pirillo.

“Learning doesn’t have to stop once you graduate thanks to the emergence of online courses,” said Pirillo. “But not all MOOCs are created equal, which is why I’m working with ClickBank to help my fan base find the best educational programs currently available online.”

Over the years, Chris Pirillo has achieved celebrity status in the tech space, providing tech-advice to millions of people through multiple online channels since 1996. Pirillo is a personality in whom other tech-enthusiasts trust to answer questions and lead discussions, and his ongoing efforts have provided timely, accurate and reliable information to the mass market. ClickBank is thrilled about our recent partnership with Chris Pirillo, and also pleased to announce that he will be a featured guest at the third annual ClickBank Exchange in Las Vegas on January 15.
