Q: Does this course meet at a specific time?
A: No, this is a self-paced course. You'll be given access modules every 2 days, but take time to get through them. One module every 4-5 days is recommended, so that you have time to access the information, dive in, and create materials before moving on to the next lesson. This is recommended to maximize your time attention and focus, while sparing you the overwhelm that could come from reading and seeing everything at once.
Q: What is the time commitment for the course? How much time does it take?
