How does a course work?
Self-Paced Online Courses
Each course is divided into lessons that take about 20-30 minutes on average. Each lesson consists of text with multiple choice questions mixed in. The text is presented in small, easy-to-understand sentences or paragraphs at a time. After a few screens of text, you will answer a few questions about what you have read. As you progress through the lesson, the learning process keeps track of how you are doing on the questions. After all the text is presented, the computer will go back to the questions you missed or had problems with and review them in random order. You will keep working on the lesson until you have answered all the questions correctly on two occasions. At that point, the lesson will be marked as complete on the main menu. You can quit a lesson at any time and a bookmark will save your place, so you do not have to repeat work you have already done when you return to a lesson.
Instructor-Led Online Courses
We also offer instructor-led online courses. Students login to their course at a set time and an instructor will teach the entire course online. Students are required to be online for the duration of the class. Periodically students will be asked questions so the instructor can verify presence.
