Each class uses a variety of media—visual, audio, full motion graphics, charts, infographics—that help users visualize material. Downloadable PDFs and links to outside resources guide users deeper into specific areas, allowing each person to customize his or her experience. Even the questions at the end of each class are designed to be instructive.
