This class is delivered entirely online- no travel required. You will watch a short video before each class – make a slide for show and tell, then we will discuss it and do some labs together. We will use Sococo for our live sessions, and do a few labs in Minecraft. Moodle will serve as our agenda and forum. We will meet for 90 minutes per week on Thursday nights at 5:30 pm Pacific, or 8:30pm Eastern. The class will be delivered in English with a mix of voice and text chat.
There is a fee of $89 USD to register for this course. You are welcome to tip $8 per live session, but are not required to. If you complete both A501 and A502, you can optionally pay $144 to recieve your formal ICP certification. There is a $26 lab fee for Minecraft (if you don’t already have it).
