Price list

For our websites, e-learning modules and presentations

Most of our work is custom and tailored to a certain budget and specific set of needs. But that doesn’t mean that we don’t have some standard options you can choose from, or a price indication to help you budget your project.

This list of standardized items will give you an indication of what we do, and at which fee. But we do work towards any budget and don’t shy away from a challenge, so even if your kind of project is not mentioned here, just send us an email and we will make you a custom quote in no time.

The prices mentioned on this page are excluding VAT.

Choose between our lean and basic website package for researchers on a budget, or talk to us about a custom quote when you need to dazzle the world with your study results.

With a website from The Online Scientist comes the guarantee that you can maintain and update the site yourself. We do offer those services as well of course, so if you want help with updates, maintenance, content or hosting, just let us know! Inquire about the possibilities and configurations via email, or fill out our website optimizer to summarize your needs and wishes.

Hosting is available for €80 per month for Managed WordPress hosting. We provide the hosting and maintenance of the website to keep it safe and working properly. We solve all technical issues that may occur quickly. You have one point of contact and there is no additional charge for smaller questions and requests.

For €125 per month you get our Managed WordPress hosting + Support Package. It gives you an additional 1 hour of support each month (at 50% discount), where you get support for all your webdesign needs, maintenance questions, or even custom design needs.


Our services to update or completely redesign your scientific presentation.

If it seems daunting to upgrade your presentation yourself (after reading our e-book Cause an Effect) or if you don’t have the time to find out how your presentation can be improved, why don’t you let us do that for you?

E-learning development is always custom, but many people ask us for the ‘ballpark prices’ of good e-learning.

We maintain a high standard for our e-learning courses: they are evidence-based and actually improve retention of content. That’s why we usually don’t develop “click-through courses” where you passively go through video and text by the click of a button – e-learning can be so much more! So if you want high-quality courses that engage and inspire students, then contact us to discuss your project, or fill out our e-learning optimizer.

(These prices are based on our own experience with projects, but they are supported by the research of Chapman Alliance and their How Long Does it Take to Create Learning? presentation on SlideShare.)
