Once inside the online classroom, here's what you can expect.

Participate When You Want

The online classroom is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. There are no live real-time requirements or meetings. For the best learning, participants should log into the course on 2-3 different days of the week.

What You Will Do

Each course is composed of several units. For each unit, you will:

  • Access the online readings
  • Listen to the audio presentation for the unit and view the slides
  • Take a self-quiz to see how much you have learned
  • Engage in written online discussion with your instructor and other participants

The content (readings, audio lectures, slides) and self-quizzes are accessible for the entire course, so you can work ahead, or go back and review again, at your convenience.


The discussion for each unit lasts one week. All comments are made in writing and can be made at any time, day or night. Your instructor will log into the discussion area at least once a day and answer questions, make comments, and respond to comments by you and the other participants. We encourage you to make 2-3 comments each day to maximize your learning and enjoyment of the course.


1. Make at least one comment every week in the discussion.

  • The comment should show thought and be more substantive than just “Yes, I agree.” There is no length required for comments.
  • Replies to other comments and responses to other participants count as comments (in most cases your instructor values replies and responses as comments).
  • Questions and online discussion facilitative comments also count as long as there is some thought to them.

2. Take the self-quiz at the end of every unit.

  • You must score 80% or higher.
  • You may retake any self-quiz as often as you need to get to the 80% score.

A pdf Certificate of Completion is issued by UGotClass at the end of the program.
