In this online course, a video of each lesson is posted along with suggested practice questions and learning targets. Students have 1 week to complete the lesson and reach the learning targets.

Each student is required to attend a weekly online chat session with the instructor on Thursday night from 8-9 p.m. This gives each student a chance to have their questions answered and for the instructor to clarify anything. If the online meeting cannot be attended, the student is required to post questions to one of the discussion boards. 

There are weekly assignments and posts as well as two tests which are to be done in the presence of a proctor. Test is scheduled for June 11 and the final exam is scheduled for July 23.
