Available during September, this 30 day course is self-paced. Feel free to work through it at your own speed. Generally, it takes 3-5 hours to work through each of the four main sessions. Others may join you along the way in the discussion forums. Take the opportunity to comment on others' posts.

You will have a course facilitator available to you. She will also be responding to your discussion posts as well as approving your assignments. Be sure to contact her if you have questions or issues during your time in the course
