Courses at Marketplace

This tutorial will walk you through uploading and managing your courses at Marketplace. Before moving forward with this guide, you will need to check out our Educator Start Guide.

Marketplace is a plugin and course repository where developers and educators from all over the world can share their knowledge and skills. The courses at Marketplace are specifically designed to provide hands-on experience inside JetBrains IDEs.

If you are interested in publishing paid courses, email us at education@jetbrains.com.

Editing course information

Prior to uploading your course to Marketplace, you may want to modify its description and other information. Go to File | Course Creator | Edit Course Information and modify the parameters within the course-info.yaml file:

The vendor parameter is additional and should be modified only if the course author is from the organization.

Uploading courses

To upload your courses to Marketplace, you’ll first need to open an account. Fill out this form to create a new JetBrains account, or sign in using your existing Google, GitHub, or BitBucket account.

Once you have registered, open your IDE, go to Settings/Preferences | Tools | Education | Marketplace, and click Log in to Marketplace. You’ll see the authorization page in your browser. Once authorized, go back to your IDE.

Go to File | Course Creator and select the Upload Course to Marketplace option to upload your course:

It will take 2-3 days for the course to be approved by our moderators. In the meantime, the course will not be visible in the Browse Courses dialog and cannot be updated. You’ll get an email notification once it has been approved.
