Course Format

Each 30-Hour Online Workshop is a hybrid class that uses a combination of online classroom sessions and offline study. Each session includes 30 hours of online class meetings via Zoom.us, where students interact with their instructor in real time, as well as independent studying and projects. Students communicate with instructors and classmates through live internet chats during online sessions, as well as through email and message forums. Students have access to reference material, schedules, and assignment postings through an interactive distance-learning website.

  • Fall and Spring Sessions: 10 weeks (3 hour live meeting per week)
  • Summer Sessions: 2 weeks (3 hour live meeting daily)
