Online Learning, Done Differently
or: Why This is an Online Course You’ll Actually Complete
Work 1:1 with a Mentor
We pair you with a mentor who has extensive professional and academic knowledge of the field. You’ll have one-on-one conversations with him or her, and receive useful feedback on improving your work. Your mentor pushes you to meet your goals, and excel in the process.
Learn from Anywhere, On Your Schedule
Each week, you’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, interactive activities and projects through our online platform – available to access at any time. Scheduling time for a mentoring session is just as flexible.
We’ll Keep You Engaged
Online courses can start off great, but staying motivated can be a challenge. Ours links you with one of our course producers, who helps you maintain the connection. They can answer your questions, help you in a pinch — or just chat.
When creating course materials, our instructional design team has one aim: to help you get the most out of your experience.
