Course Access Information

Course Format

Live Video Sessions

Every course lesson will be delivered as a 2 hour live video lecture. There will be breaks for questions between each "topic" covered in the video or at specific intervals, depending on the course. A moderator will be available to answer questions in a live chat during the lecture. Each session may include lecture, visualization, and application components.

Published Videos

As an extension for our live video lectures, we will publish our live lectures as 1) a series of shortened 10-20 minute videos to our course website with question session functionality and 2) an uncut, recorded version of the live lecture. Students will gain access to the shortened video series a day after the live session. Depending on the course, video summaries may be published.
