HOW TO USE THESE LESSONS
Read through the lessons at your own pace. Every 2-4 lessons, we will pause to give you some tasks to practice. Each set of lessons with practice is meant to take about a week or so.
NOTE: This is a self-paced course. The first time through, it was run as a 6-week course with a live component, and you have access to all archived materials. We have a special Facebook group just for students.
Take whatever time you need ,but keep going! And if you stop for a while, and remember that you've not logged on, just come back. You'll keep access to the course on this site and can log in any time.
