Tutorials for shareware products
The E-Learning Foundry has recently introduced a course for the popular Macintosh application GraphicConverter. Many software companies sell additional onscreen documentation for their products. If a product is very popular, a few third-party tutorials or courses might also be available. But it's pretty unusual for a shareware product to get supplemental documentation. There may be an untapped market here, but it might be tricky to come up with the right pricing. In this case, the course costs the same as the application, and twice that of the printed manual offered by the manufacturer.
