EXTENDED CLASS PREVIEW

Watch a 30-minute example class to get a feel for how our classes work.  You will see

  • students speak with the instructor in real time.
  • live text chat with the instructor and students.
  • critical engagement with class material.
  • students share ideas on the class whiteboard.

Please note: this is a recording of a live class, so the chat includes occasional typos. The sample is taken from a 50-minute class.
