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 levels include everything below them too. So, for example, if you become a Developer-level member, you get access to ALL of my Beginner courses, ALL of my Expert courses, ALL of my Advanced and Developer-level courses, ALL of the PDF handbooks for those lessons, and some Seminars & Templates. That's a LOT of material. Plus, all members receive a 50% discount on anything you may wish to purchase outside of your membership level, seminars, or templates.
How can 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.
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, annual members will be billed monthly at 1/12th their annual rate. This is to make it easier on your when renewal time comes around. You won't have to come up with another large annual fee. Essentially, you pay month-to-month after your first year at a reduced rate. Of course, if you wish to cancel, contact me before your year is up.
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.
May I share my account?
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 and 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 (digital items only).
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 & downloads included?
Sorry, but TechHelp is not considered part of my normal training program 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.
Regular Courses Not Included
Some people have emailed me saying that they were under the impression that they get access to all of my regular courses when they become a member. This is not necessarily the case. Your Silver, Gold, or Platinum membership does NOT entitle you to all of my regular courses, seminars, or templates. You do get ONE free class each month, IN ORDER, depending on your membership level. See the Perks page and the Free Courses for Members page for details.
In fact, one thing I'd like to emphasize before you sign up is that the TechHelp videos are NOT the best way to LEARN Access (or any other program) if you're new to it. TechHelp is basically a Q&A series. I answer whatever questions come in from my students in whatever random order I happen to choose. It's not a format that is condusive to learning if you're NEW to Access. If you are somewhat experienced with Access and want to learn new tips and tricks, then this is a great "almost-daily" video blog to teach you some new stuff. If you're a Beginner, you should stick to my Beginner lessons, then move up to the Expert lessons and perhaps then start watching the TechHelp videos. I recommend my Learning Connection membership for new users to Access.
