Yes, you can. The courses are all self paced. You can read the lectures at your own pace, whenever you want. That said, we do recommend going through the course on a regular schedule (e.g. a few hours every week) to ensure you don’t lose track.
Yes, you can always go back to re-do sections that you’ve completely earlier. In fact, we encourage you to go back to those sections you found hardest!
Once you signed up for your course through the sign up button you can navigate towards your course. The ‘enroll’ button will have disappeared and instead you can now click on the titles of the different sections (either in the right sidebar or at the bottom of the page). Click on the first section of the course and get rolling!
Once you’re in your course you will have a sidebar on the left hand side showing you all the sections of the course. This helps you to keep track of where you are by showing which sections you have and which you haven’t completed.
Also, we keep track of where you last left off. Next time you come back simply select the last uncompleted section and get going again!
Every course is made of a few major sections. Every section again consists of lessons. You can click on the lesson that you want to continue with. One lesson discusses a coherent group of topics, e.g. ‘what are micro organisms’. To make it easier to follow, we’ve split these lessons in shorter topics. You can generally complete a topic within 10 minutes.
The easiest option is to go through the topics one by one and completing the topics by selecting ‘mark complete’. Doing so sends you to the next topic and will continue to bring you through the whole course!
