Do I have to be online at specific times when taking a short online course?

Nope!  Our courses are designed to be completed around your busy schedule, and therefore there are no set times that you need to be online.   However, we encourage students to log in daily (when possible) and check out the Discussion Forums for their course frequently.

Need some extra time?  No worries!  Catch up in the evenings or weekends, or take advantage of the extra access time that is given after the official course period ends.  Most short online courses have a 1 or 2 week “official” course period, when our instructors and guest experts are available to answer your questions.  Once this period ends, however, you will continue to have access to the course material for an additional 3-4 weeks.
