My Online Learning Partner (MYOLP) is a membership program where you can learn from any and all of my video courses and eBooks for one low annual price.
When you join MYOLP, you get access to ALL of the standard course video tutorials and PDF handbooks in your membership level that are currently available. Please check my Course Outline for a complete list of available courses.
My most popular course offering is Microsoft Access, but this membership type includes ALL of my topics including Word, Excel, and lots more. So if you want a well-rounded education, this is the membership type for you.
What are Membership Levels?
There are four different membership levels: Beginner, Expert, Developer, and Developer Plus!
New: Developer Plus! now includes:
What Does Membership Cost?
You can either pay for an annual or lifetime membership. Sorry, I do not offer monthly memberships because unscrupulous individuals would sign up for one month, download everything, and then cancel. After your first year, if you wish to continue month-to-month, that's fine with me. If you have purchase over $500 in lessons from me already, I will consider a month-to-month membership.
How Do I View My Courses?
You can log on any time right here on my web site and watch your courses whenever you wish. As long as you remain a MYOLP member, you have full access to all of the materials in your membership level. You watch your lessons right in your web browser using the Online Theater. You can even download the videos and other course materials for offline use.
Can I Cancel At Any Time?
You must agree to remain a member for a minimum of one year. After that, you can cancel any time you wish. Of course, once your membership is canceled, you will no longer have access to your lessons. If you experience a hardship and need to pause your membership, contact me. I can always to put your account ON HOLD. I know things happen - loss of a job, sickness, global pandemic, etc. I will work with you as best I can. After the first year, you may switch to month-to-month billing if you prefer. Just be sure to contact me before your year is up, otherwise the system will bill you for the full year renewal.
Can I Upgrade My Membership?
Yes, of course. You can upgrade your membership at any time to the next level. You will just pay the pro-rated difference in the membership types for the remainder of your current billing period. If you sign up for a single year and wish to upgrade to a lifetime membership, I will apply what you paid for your first year to the lifetime membership, provided you do so before your first year expires.
Can I Share My Membership?
No. Like my regular lessons, MYOLP memberships are sold on a PER-USER basis. You may not share your account with others. It's only fair. I don't mind if you share your account with your spouse or kids that live at home, but that's all. Immediate family living with you only. Business users may NOT share one account between multiple users. I do offer discounts for businesses and educational institutions that want to sign up multiple users. Contact me.
Are Seminars & Templates Included?
Some, but not all of my Seminars and Templates are included in MYOLP. Some are not. Contact me for specifics. Even for those items that are not included, you will still receive a 50% discount.
Is the ABCD Included?
Sorry, but the ABCD (Access Business & Contact Database) is a separate non-teaching product. It is considered a Template and is not included in the MYOLP program. New: Developer Plus! members do get the ABCD.
Are TechHelp Extended Cut Videos Included?
Sorry, but TechHelp is not considered part of my normal training and is not included in the MYOLP program. It requires a separate membership. New: Developer Plus! members do get all TechHelp products.
Technical Support Not Provided
Signing up for a Membership of any kind gives you access to specific perks as listed. If you have questions about the material covered in a specific course, feel free to post them in the Student Forum for that course. If you have other non-related questions you would like to submit to be considered for a TechHelp video, you will be given priority consideration over non-members, however an answer is NOT in any way guaranteed. Even in the event your question is accepted, the waiting list is generally several weeks long. I will answer your question IF I think it makes for a good video. Otherwise, I will do my best to point you to another video (free or paid) that may answer your question.
Membership does NOT include free technical support for your database problems. I do my best to answer questions for my students as I have time, however it is NEVER guaranteed. As of June 2021, I no longer provide Technical Support. If you are looking for someone to help you with your database, whether it needs troubleshooting or you want someone to add something to it for you, feel free to post your request in my Access Developer Network. I've got a group of very knowledgeable Developer students who love helping people.
TechHelp is for generic questions that I can make videos to answer for lots of people to enjoy. "How do I...?" type questions. It's not to get support for your database issues. Sorry. There are only so many hours in the day, and I can't help everyone myself.
