How long do I have access to an online course?
Unless otherwise specified in the product description, online course access is unlimited.
Course navigation is provided in the right sidebar. Courses are broken into lessons and lessons are grouped into modules.
Courses are typically designed in a linear fashion since course content builds on prior content as the lessons progress. However, you are free to access any lesson at any time unless a course is set up with one of the following features:
- Dripped Content – Some courses are designed to release lessons on a timed schedule.
- Lesson Prerequisites – Some courses may require mastery (pass a test) of one lesson before advancing to the next.
