FAQ

WHAT IS THE DAILY STRUCTURE OF THIS 18 WEEK BOOTCAMP?


Students meet online once a week. In addition to the weekly class meeting, students meet once a week for a remote, 30-minute one-on-one with a mentor. Students start each academic week on Sunday and are required to watch all videos and start working on assignments/projects before their meeting online to be prepared.




WHY DO STUDENTS START ASSIGNMENTS BEFORE THEY MEET FOR CLASS?


We have students start reviewing curriculum and working on weekly assignments three days before class as part of our two-point learning process. The two sections of our learning process are "learn" and "solidify". We have students start the learning process by reviewing the curriculum and starting assignments before class. That way, when they come to class they are already familiar with the concepts and the instructor can start the second phase by ensuring they practice and understand what they are learning, or have already learned. Studies show that a flipped educational model, such as this, help students learn quicker and retain more information.




IS THE COURSE INSTRUCTOR-LED? WHAT IS THE BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE OF YOUR INSTRUCTORS?
