  • Self-paced opportunities: allows access to content anytime, anywhere at the learner’s fingertips

How Much Study Time Should I Plan For?

A: Blended Learning classes are either led by a facilitator or self-paced. The course duration varies depending on the depth of knowledge shared within the particular class.

Facilitator-Led Blended Learning:  All participants in these courses begin on the same day. You may access course materials any time—day or night—for 60 days after date of purchase.

  • If there is a course book, the entire book is available starting on the first day. The e-learning modules, activities and discussion boards are divided into sections that are released weekly over a 4-8 week period, depending on the amount of content. View Course Matrix

  • You will be able to view the course syllabus and course book (if applicable) starting on the first day. These are valuable tools to help you plan how much time you will want to spend in the course each week. It is recommended that you go through the materials carefully to gauge how long each e-learning module, case studies, activities, etc. will take you each week. (See sample class syllabus for facilitator-led classes).

  • All facilitator-led courses include at least one live event where students and the facilitator come together in an online environment to discuss course material, group exercises, questions and answers, etc. Live web sessions are scheduled from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Pacific. Although these sessions are scheduled for two hours, they may or may not run that long. These sessions are recorded and are available for review soon after the event.

  • Discussion boards are included in every course and are monitored by the facilitator. You can access the discussion boards at any time. These are a great way to interact with your facilitator and other course participants. You can post questions, read threads from other participants and the facilitator, and respond to what others have to say.

Self-Paced Blended Learning:  You can access your self-paced course shortly after you register. Some participants may have started before you, and others will start after you, based on their individual registration dates. You may access course materials any time—day or night—for 60 days after date of purchase.

  • All course materials are available starting on the first day. The e-learning modules, and activities divided into sections so that you can easily determine how you want to allocate your time over the duration of your access. View Course Matrix
