(...) for some sort of image thing because I'm now a public figure or something and it might imply that I'm endorsing the course.

Yup. I would maybe just send them a short note saying the above if I were you. The fact they used your image may not bother you much in this case, but it could be misleading for future students.
And using this kind of "marketing" practice doesn't look good for a university really.

Put out a vid saying how you're good freinds with Prince Andrew. The photo would disappear within milliseconds.

$79/hr for that course.
I would understand if its for industry pro's but its for students.. what a joke.

I think I paid ~$12/hr for my courses, or Fedevals online course is $90.


$262 USD, got the wrong currency..

Why?
It's a PCB design course using Altuim, and they just got a stock image from Altium to use. I'm sure they have no idea who I am.

I don't get it. The course is $369 given in 180 hours, that'd be $2,05/h. What am I missing?

I screwed up the currency, apparently its in pesos and uses the same $ symbol as USD.

Does it MATTER who 'one' IS ??
Everyone uses 'stock-photos'. I usually email them first for permission. If they don't reply
then I use them. (But with a note somewhere). Not everyone want's praise!!

Definitely, if "one" is Her Majesty the Queen.
(The funny thing is, I don't know  if "Bessie" uses that term, it just sounds like something "one" would expect her to say) ;D
