We are looking for talented, passionate educators to help us create free online college courses that help millions of students break down barriers to higher education.


Remilon LLC's flagship website, Education-Portal.com, has over 140 courses, consisting of over 7,000 published lessons, and is growing quickly. Our courses cover a full range of academic subjects, including math, science, history, English, psychology, and business. Best of all, our courses are free and lead to real college credit.


Each course is made up of bite-sized video lessons (each 5-10 minutes long) that cover a single concept. Courses are designed to prepare students to earn real college credit through credit-granting exams, such as the College Board's CLEP exams. Our lessons are also widely used by instructors to:



  • Supplement classroom instruction

  • Replace costly textbooks

  • Engage reluctant learners

  • Flip the classroom


We also have text-only lessons, which are supplemental resources that use relatable instruction to teach granular concepts. Your lessons will reach millions of students and teachers and help make educational accessible to learners around the world.
