  • Who is the intended audience for this course?

    This course was designed for EDUCATORS! That includes teachers, leaders, curriculum specialists, coaches, LMSs, and others who want to strengthen digital citizenship instruction.

  • Is this course self-paced or facilitated?

    This course is self-paced so that participants can learn when the time is right for them. However, many schools and districts have found success purchasing multiple seats in the course and having a cohort take it together using a blended learning "book study" format where participants take each chapter during a designated week and then meet synchronously to discuss and make connections that are personal to their school or district. Contact LeeAnn ([email protected]) to find out more about purchasing multiple seats in the course for a school or district cohort.

  • How long does the course take to complete?

    Hard question to answer, as every learner will complete activities at a different pace. Most learners report spending 5-7 hours to complete the course.

  • How long do I have access to the course?

    If you're accessing the course as an individual (not through your school or district), you have access for 365 days. If you're taking the course through your school or district, you also most likely have access for 365 days, but you should check with your course contact.

  • Can a school or district use a PO to purchase seats in the course?

    Yes, we accept POs when you purchase 10 or more course seats! Fill out this form to request a quote - https://bit.ly/RequestPO3.
