Java Programmer II OCP Video Courses

I passed the Java OCP exam last month, but was frustrated by the lack of a video course, which was available for the OCA Programmer I exam.

Now that I'm working from home I'm looking for a project to do in my spare time and was thinking of starting to make video lessons covering the OCP course.

Does anyone know whether I would require permission from the exam provider to put these videos online?

You need to make sure not to quote questions actually asked in the exam. Also make sure not to ask the same question as you found in any other course or book etc. Make sure that all the explanations you put on screen are your own and not copied from elsewhere.
I don't think you need permission from anybody, but make sure not to breach anybody's copyright nor plagiarise anybody else's work.

Also, work out how you can get paid for such a course. Don't put it out free of charge.

Louise,
Confirmed that you don't need permission from Oracle as long as you comply with the terms of service from taking the exam.

When I write, I do a lot of my outlining (or writing time permitting) prior to taking the exam. That way I ensure I'm not overfitting to the questions I happened to get.

Thanks both.  I'll make sure to check my examples are unique before posting any video online. Using the exam objectives as my only reference could be a good starting point.

You might do well to run your videos past some of us before you post them.

[edit]Correct a spelling error.
