Online Format

There are two semesters per year: Winter (January-April) and Fall (September-December). Each course has a total of seven lessons and two assignments that are to be completed over a 12-week period.  On average, students should expect to devote approximately 3 -7 hours per week on each lesson. The time for each learner will vary based on prior education and work experiences. This time includes not only the completion of the readings, the optional quiz, discussion activities, but also the interaction with other students and preparation for the two assignments. Generally, you should look to complete an average of one lesson per week as per the course itinerary. 

Online courses require each student to:

  • Read the course material,
  • Participate in discussion activities, complete internet research and/or explain best practices and,
  • Complete two assignments.

And each student is encouraged to: 

  • Share your experience, resources and concerns with our on-line community (when appropriate),
  • Read and respond (when appropriate) to other students’ posts,
  • Complete the quiz at the end of each lesson,
  • Ask questions of the facilitator or of each other.
