Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pass this class? How do grades work? Deadlines? 

In this course, we have shifted the emphasis away from grades and deadlines. What’s important is the effort you put into your reflections and the experiences you have. This especially means engaging with the community of your peers and making assignment work personally meaningful. These goals don’t lend themselves to automated evaluation, but benefit greatly from discussion and reflection. For this reason, the course has you focus on reflecting in your journal or sharing your experience with your trusted colleagues.

At the end of each part's content, there will be a Completion Checklist for you to keep track of activities, assignments, and readings completed. The more you do, the more you will get out of the course, but you should also feel free to tailor your experience in the course to your own interests and goals. 

You can view your progress on the Progress page (located on the top navigation bar).
