You’ll get access to the course content, theme by theme, over 7 weeks (with access to the video lessons for a year). You’ll receive access to the new content at the beginning of each week, so everyone’s on the same page as we go through the course.
Here’s a sample course schedule:
Monday: Release of the week’s video lesson, pre-recorded panel discussion, and assignment in Eduflow.
Sunday: Deadline for the assignment submission.
Monday: Peer’s assignment evaluation opens.
Wednesday: Deadline for peer’s assignment evaluation submission.
NB: Assignments and panel discussions are part of the Standard an Extended courses only.
This is an intensive course designed to deliver maximum value in 7 weeks. You’ll get out of it what you put in—we’ve designed the course to scale to the time you’ve got available.
Have an hour per week? Take the Basic course. Video lessons are ~1hr each. It’s self-paced, with no assignments and no certification.
Have 1-2 hours per week? Take the Standard or Extended course, but opt out of doing the assignments. Simply watch the video lessons, join in the Slack discussion and dip into panel discussions for a total commitment of 1-2 hours per week. This option lets you watch videos and panel discussions whenever you like each week, with no assignments and no certification. For 1:1 coaching, apply for the Extended course.
Have 4-5 hours per week? Take the Standard or Extended course, and opt into doing the assignments. Watch the video lessons and panel discussions earlier in the week so you have time to do assignments and benefit from the group discussion on Slack. You’ll also evaluate others’ assignments, and have the chance to join the weekly office hour, for a total commitment of 4-5 hours a week. This option includes assignments and certification. Opt into 1:1 coaching through the Extended course.
If you spend more time, you’re going to get more out of it.
Here’s a sample breakdown:
- 1hr – video lessons (released every Monday, for 7 weeks)
- 10+ mins – discussions on Slack (throughout the week)
- 1-2 hrs – panel discussions (released every Monday, for 7 weeks)
- 1-2 hrs – assignments (released every Monday, due every Sunday)
- 10-20 mins – evaluating assignments
Remember, all participants get access to the course for a full year. While it’s released over 7 weeks, you can revisit any of the content on your own time.

The certification is available for those who take the Standard or Extended course, successfully completing all assignments and achieving a 60% or greater overall score. We’ll issue a certificate upon successful completion of all the course assignments. You’re able to resubmit assignments if required.
