Taking an Online Course

Each week, your instructor will post a new lesson. You can log on and work on the material anytime within that week. Typically, students spend approximately 10-12 hours per week to complete the work. More or less time may be required depending on the student’s level of experience. The lessons are media-rich and filled with fun interactive learning activities. Also, the projects and assignments within a course provide practical, real-world experience.

As the course progresses, you’ll form a community with your classmates and instructor. You can share ideas, collaborate on assignments, submit and critique each other’s projects, and chat in real time, 24/7. You will have access to your course for one year after its completion.
