How it works

eCourses

An eCourse is an electronic version of a class that meets. It is just that we don’t meet at the same place or time. We never see one another, except for the picture we upload . . . so you can always look good. You choose when you access material, post your comments to the discussion, or respond to other participants during the weekly schedule – making it very desirable for adult learners.

Our eCourses are completed online. As long as you have access to the internet and a computer, you can participate from anywhere, at any time during the specified time frame. Note that, at the moment,  iPads nor iPhones supports Flash technology, so cannot be used to make your posts.

We have designed each eCourse so that you become familiar with the material and then participate in online discussions. On a weekly basis, you may listen to meditations, check-in, review videos, complete self-assessments, read articles (or a book) by leading thinkers in the field, adopt a new practice, participate in eDiscussions and, if you are interested in earning CEUs, take a post-test. Upon completion of reading the materials and, in some cases, completing the exercises, and participating in the discussion, you will be ready to complete the post test.

We start most of our eCourses on Thursday. This gives you a few extra days to get familiar with the learning management system, to upload a picture and to introduce yourself. Then, each week you will review the material, test a few ideas or practices, and post to the discussion by Wednesday. You will then have a few more days to respond to fellow participants by Saturday, at which time that weeks discussion closes. You decide whether you want to participate over the week-end, or not. Depending on the number of CEUs per course, you can expect to put in about 2-3 hours per week. Note: 1 hour equals 1 CEU.

Self-Studies

A Self-Study (home study) is a solo event. No discussions with the instructor or other participants. A Self-Study course consists of carefully chosen articles (or a book) by leading thinkers in the field that, read together, provide an in-depth examination of subject matter of the course. You are able to complete the course on your own time (within six months) and on your own schedule. Upon completion of reading the materials and, in some cases, viewing videos or completing the exercises and brief reflection essays, you will be ready to complete the post test.
