Why our Courses are Unique:
Mini courses are online sessions that offer a unique opportunity to explore a subject in detail and practice applying knowledge right away. Each course also offers opportunity for discussions and interaction with diverse classmates from around the world; independent projects and activities; direct tutor feedback; and much more!
Live&Interactive sessions: learners join the teacher in live multi-media sessions at scheduled times – for activities, discussions, debates and explorations; learners have 24/7 access to all of the course activities, projects, assignments and discussions; learners can interact with the tutor and other learners during live online sessions and via discussion chats at other times. This format is great if your child prefers group interaction and interactivity.
Flexible Timing, Recorded sessions: learners access the course according to their own schedule, and at their own pace; learners can: view the pre-recorded ‘live’ sessions; access all of the course activities, projects, assignments and discussions; interact with the tutor and other learners via interactive discussion chats. This format is great if your child prefers to learn independently, or is uncomfortable with live interaction.
|Our Mini Courses can enhance any style of home education approach / homeschool program of study:|
|Unstructured – Many young people choose a course simply because they are fascinated by the subject; if you follow an unstructured or child-led approach to home education, exploring different subjects as your child develops their interests, our courses fit right in. Activities are optional, you can watch and rewatch recordings on your own schedule.|
|Semi-structured – You / your child might approach some specific subjects with the aim of making clear progress through set stages, as part of a longer term plan (while other subjects/topics are approached in a more spontaneous manner). If this sounds like you, course weekly assignments and projects can be an excellent way of recording progress and building a portfolio of knowledge. It may also be important to you, to have a record of your child’s efforts and progress – for either your own purposes or for your local education authority.|
|Structured – If you / your child like to follow a structure and routine, record effort, and measure progression, then we provide easy to use tools to do so.|
