Course Options

Courses on offer three different ways learners can earn a digital credential.

Formative Review: 

Learners receive feedback from an expert mentor, as they complete tasks within the course. Mentors may reach out to learners any time, while they are working on a course. Once all tasks are completed within a course and submitted, the coursework should be reviewed by a mentor before awarding a digital credential.
