Each lesson will have a short, multiple-choice quiz, and some lessons may include a hands-on assignment.

You will have 2 weeks from the last lesson and final exam to complete your studies and submit the final exam.
What happens if I have a question during class? Each of the lessons is accompanied by an interactive discussion area. When you need help with a lesson, all you have to do is post your question or inquiry in the appropriate course discussion area, where the instructor, his or her teaching assistant, or one of your fellow students will respond.
