Workshop Types

Workshops are strictly lecture-based to offer some introduction or in-depth information before enrolling in the course and tutorial classes.

  1. Workshops are the I Do It (GRR) method where the instructor leads the content and materials providing information about the subject/topic.
  2. The purpose is to give a full overview of the subject-topic.
  3. Workshops use a lot of visual and auditory materials.
  4. Workshops are sometimes required and are always recommended before enrolling in courses and tutorials.
  5. All workshops offer a participation certificate.

Courses

Courses demonstrate the We Do It and You Do It Together (GRR) method both instructor and students work through the sessions and projects together.

  1. Instructors lead courses while students follow through a step-by-step process.
  2. Courses offer various media and resources to enhance online learning, such as presentations, Zoom meetings, videos, and reading materials.
  3. The purpose is to allow students to watch and demonstrate the exercises to ensure learning is taking place.
  4. Students will utilize the Group/Classroom for exchanging information, ask questions, and collaborate with others.
  5. All courses offer a completion certificate.

Tutorials

Tutorials demonstrate the You Do It (GRR) method; the student will use projects and assessment tools to demonstrate learning has occurred.

  1. Tutorials are led by the students working through different exercises or projects.
  2. Teachers offer feedback on exercises and projects to enhance learning and applying skills and knowledge to the subject.
  3. Some assessments require a specific score to proceed or complete the tutorial class.

You can also find your certificate under your Profile.

Name on the Certificate

If you only put your first name in your profile user information section, the certificate will only print your first name. If you left your name blank, it would print your user name.
