What are the online courses like? What can I expect?

Typically, our online courses require a high degree of self-motivation and ability to work on your own. Within each week of the course, work is conducted on your own schedule: reading materials, doing homework assignments, and posting comments in discussion forums. Courses also usually incorporate about one webinar a week, at a time and day that will be announced in the course description. This is a chance for course participants to convene online in real-time, to hear a presentation (usually by a farmer or other outside expert) and ask questions. This is often the most popular part of our courses, as participants enjoy the opportunity to convene together in an online “classroom” and ask questions of the presenter.

Each week the instructors will “open” a new list of assignments and reading materials usually representing a new topic from the previous week.
