Our primary need for funding is to cover our monthly costs, which are about $15,000 per month. But many people prefer to give to a specific project, so here is a list of what we would like to do, and the costs.

Apps

iOS update ($6,000)

Android update ($5,000)

Class production

These are classes that are recorded and we are waiting funding to do post production (specifics below).

Matthew (Craig Keener) $14,000

Costs

Hourly costs per class

This is the formula we use to determine costs creating a class. It is based on a final hour of video and what are all the costs connecting to that hour. For example, we pay a professional videographer $100 per hour, assuming that he will spend two hours for every hour shot. For a typical seminary level class with 20 hours of lectures, it costs us about $25,000 for recording and production.

Not every class we have requires each of these steps, which is why the prices above vary from class to class.
