All wonderful thoughts, Erik. I am not 100% certain in regards to payout, but I believe Medium keeps 50% of the money they make each month from subscribers. They then pay the other 50% out to the writers. So, the $5 split is a good estimate. They would certainly have to sell quite a bit of courses for it to be worthwhile for the writer/creative.
