Online Learning, Done Differently

or: Why This is an Online Course You’ll Actually Complete

Work 1:1 with a Mentor

We pair you with a mentor who has extensive professional and academic knowledge of the field. You’ll have one-on-one conversations with him or her, and receive useful feedback on improving your work. Your mentor pushes you to meet your goals, and excel in the process.

Learn from Anywhere, On Your Schedule

Each week, you’ll complete a series of videos, quizzes, interactive activities and projects through our online platform – available to access at any time. Scheduling time for a mentoring session is just as flexible.

We’ll Keep You Engaged

Our mentors are here to keep you motivated, answer questions, provide feedback, and help deepen your understanding of essential tools and techniques.
