    Hi Shannon,

    I am interested in taking the class. I just wanted to confirm the schedule. Will this be a live session or can I take it when I can?
    Also, if it is a live session, will it be possible to have it on weekends? I am working full time so I wont be able to take it on weekdays.

    Hi Shweta! (and everyone else who’s wondering)

    The way these classes are taught are mainly asynchronous, i.e. it doesn’t matter when/where you are, you can log in and follow along when it is convenient for you. In the marketing class that’s running now, we’ve even got people in France and Spain! If we schedule any live chats/live events, we’ll make sure everyone gets a chance to log on at a good time for them.

    Do you know when the class will start and how long you will run it?

  • Post authorShannon

    It’s getting started now, Sam, and it’ll run for about a month, maybe a bit longer if need be.
