How does the course work?

Our job is to change what people do, not simply what they know. All of our courses have been designed as experiences, not mere information, and developed with each unique audience in mind.

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.
