Great classroom features you'll only find online

- Weekly forums allow you to comment, ask questions, and participate in lively discussions.
- The instructor checks in at least once every 48 hours to answer questions and provide feedback.
- All of the course materials are available for the duration of the class, so if you go on vacation, come down with the flu, or get completely overwhelmed at work, you don’t have to miss a thing.
- And, best of all, you don’t have to leave the house (or find matching socks, or locate your car keys.)
