This is a seven week course offered online. Corresponding assignments are due each week. To get the most out of the experience, you should expect to spend 2 to 3 hours per week on the lessons and assignments. The course is offered through Moodle, an easy-to-use online interface that you’ll view through your personal computer’s web browser.

The bulk of the course happens on your own time, with discussions, readings, and assignments in Moodle.  To add to the experience, webinars will be woven into the online interface of the course to allow you to meet on a weekly basis and learn from the presenters and ask questions in real time.  If you miss one, they are always recorded and posted for later viewing.
