Tutorial

What is Sivana?

Sivana is an open platform for learning and sharing. We provide a site for tutors (we call them “Instructors”) to create profiles displaying their skills and teaching interests, where potential students can search and discover them to make a connection. Once a teacher and student connect, they use our built-in video conferencing to share knowledge.

You can search or browse subjects and Instructors on the site without signing in, but you will need to create an account or log in before you can contact them or join a call in their Video Classroom. To create your account, use your email address or sign in with Facebook or Google.

5. Teach Others

You can become an Instructor yourself, by adding a bio and information about yourself as a teacher. Then create a "Subject" to describe what you plan to teach, and for students to find. Subjects are the primary focus of searches and listings on the site so be sure to write a clear title and accurate description of what you wish to teach.

6. Future Plans

Sivana plans to support many new features that will enable Instructors to charge for their services and build a business on our platform, while expanded community features will help those with similar interests find and connect with one another. Now is the time to establish yourself on our platform so that we can grow together.
