Wet Ink is purpose built for learning that pivots around written work from students. Essentially anything where students write and expect collaboration/feedback on their written work. Some examples of this are Fiction, Non-Fiction, Humanities, Technical Writing, Screenwriting, History, Songwriting, Marketing, Poetry, Politics, Journalism, Podcasting, Philosophy, Business Writing, Spirituality/Mindfulness/Therapy etc

Classes can vary significantly in how they're structured. For example, some classes have lessons for students to read which open up over time. Some are purely generative and work with assignments and peer critiques. Some have instructors while in others students work on their own. In this article, we'll go over a few examples of kinds of classes you can run using Wet Ink:

1. Group Class

How - use our Group Class format when creating your class.

This is the most common type of class run at Wet Ink. A group of students are lead by an instructor to collectively work through the class material. Students typically complete assignments and optionally go over lesson content or critique each other's work.

2. Group Class without Instructor

How - use our Group Class format when creating your class. 

In typical Self-Paced classes students feel isolated and often abandon the course. A Group Class without Instructor offers a great alternative. In this format, you enroll a cohort of students at the same time. These students then collectively work through the class material without any teacher. You can structure the class content such that lessons and assignments are automatically posted over time. For intermediate or advanced students you can even enable peer critiques in these classes. 

3. Class without Lessons

How - use our Group Class format when creating your class. Skip the option to create lessons and just schedule the assignments for students to complete.

Often, teachers just need a space for students to interact and they post assignments as needed. In these classes, there is no lesson content for students to go over. This is typically how Wet Ink is used to support in-person classes.

4. Workshop

How - use our Group Class format when creating your class. Skip the option to create lessons and just schedule the submissions for students. You may also want to post assignments as well.

Workshops pivot around content generated by students in the class. In these classes, students take turn posting their work in the class often there is some form of peer critiques amongst students. 

5. Self-Paced Course

How - use our Self-Paced format when creating your class. 

These classes are taken by students completely on their own. They include rich lessons taken at the student's chosen pace, without involvement of an instructor or other students. 

5. One-on-One Mentorship

How - use our One-on-One Mentorship format when creating your class. 

The experience in mentorship classes is all about a single student and a mentor. There is only one student in the class, who can work through the lessons at the student's chosen pace and communicate with their mentor.
