Short Courses

These short courses range from 3 to 6 weeks in length. Assignments and activities are done on a weekly basis throughout the course.

During this time, the learner logs in to the online system at any time that is convenient for them. An instructor guides the class through the course using email, chat and online forum-style discussions.

Learners taking Short Courses use an online system called Moodle.
