The course will be conducted entirely via a virtual learning platform. Assistance is available via email, with experts available to answer and course-related learning questions. In order to fully complete all course offerings, we recommend that learners have access to a functioning laptop or PC with stable internet connection and working speakers.
At the end of each module, the learner will be expected to complete a non-timed multiple choice assessment on major topics within the module. Learners will be encouraged to retake the assessment until they achieve a passing score.
In order to preserve the integrity of the course, we ask that all learners refrain from plagiarism in completion of any activities, and that they do not directly discuss solutions to the multiple choice assessment with other learners currently undertaking the course. All of the work submitted should be completed by the learner, and we also ask that course materials are not shared with others not completing the course unless otherwise specified.
Learners with diverse needs are very much welcome in this course, and we are happy to accommodate wherever needed. Please feel free to contact Stephanie (email@example.com) or another member of the Diversio team should you require any assistance with the course (i.e. grayscale-adapted versions of course content, clarification on transcripts for voiceovers). We are committed to helping you achieve your learning goals in this course.
