Hello authors! Here we welcome your discussion on how we can take Tes resources to the next phase. Please share your feedback in this forum about what quality means to you and how together we can create a Tes marketplace that incentivises and rewards high quality teaching resources. Over the last number of years, teachers on Tes have created an incredible story: a billion resources downloaded, over half a million resources uploaded and students reached in 180 countries worldwide. Some 50K of you share your resources, and just over a quarter of you have started selling your materials too. Together, we’ve made a great start, and now we’d like your help take Tes resources to the next phase, beginning with a conversation about quality. Increasing the quality of resources We know that the whole Tes community cares about the quality of resources available on Tes. We, like you, want to increase this quality, as poor-quality resources stop teachers from trusting each other and returning to Tes for their resources. There are a number of ways we think we can improve quality and we’ll be asking for your help in the coming months as we look into areas including reviews of resources, visibility and how resources are promoted. We also want to establish a royalty system that rewards authors and encourages quality, something we’re sure you’ll support. We recognise that the current tier structure has incentivised uploads by volume, in some cases at the expense of quality, and we want to explore how we can change this. Please share your views We want to consult with you on: What quality means to you in the context of resources, eg, value for money, meeting teachers’ needs, completeness Ways we can improve and incentivise resource quality together How to create a marketplace and community that encourages quality What happens next: Now: please give us your feedback on these three topics. You can get involved by telling us and each other what you think in this thread. We’ll be responding and engaging in conversations. 11 January: at 8pm next Thursday, the team will be streaming a live Q&A to discuss these themes. Look out for further information on how to join in. February: we will publish collated community feedback and options for next steps. Thank you for being a part of the Tes community. We look forward to working closely with you as we take Tes resources to the next phase.
