1. What’s included in this online course?
This course contains (1) three modules including pre-recorded webinars, self-assessment quizzes, and reading assignments and (2) six modules including a series of synchronous, live classes (i.e., webinars). The class series will be offered once each fall and spring semester.
2. Are the courses conducted in real time?
Yes and no. The three modules containing pre-recorded webinars are asynchronous. Once registered, students are able to view the instructors' presentations at their convenience - at home, the office, or anywhere there is a connection to the Internet. However, there is also a component of the course consisting of a series of live classes that will occur in real time and will not be recorded.
3. How do I access the course materials?
All course materials will be available for viewing on the course platform.
4. How can I ask the instructors questions?
Each live class will include a Q&A period during which you will be able to directly interact with the instructors and ask questions. The instructors will answer as many questions as they are able in the time allotted.
5. Can I access the live classes if I register after they are offered?
No—because the live classes will not be recorded, you will not be able to access them once they have concluded. However, as your course registration includes access to the course for 365 calendar days, you will have an opportunity to join any missed live classes the following semester. Additionally, you will have 24/7 access to the course’s pre-recorded webinars as well as the materials for each of the live classes.
6. Do I need any special equipment to participate in the course?
To participate in the online course, you will need a PC or Mac with an Internet connection, loaded with a Web browser (Google Chrome or Mozilla are the preferred browsers, but any browser will work). You will also need Adobe Reader for reading PDF files which is available for free download from www.adobe.com.
7. Do I have to register as an individual or can my institution register as a site?
Courses are open for individual registration only.
8. How much time can I expect to spend on the course per week?
On average, you can expect to spend approximately 2-3 hours per module on course materials including viewing the instructors’ presentations or participating in the classes, reading assignments, and completing assessments. Course participants are also expected to complete a course evaluation.
