Online courses have Live Interactive and Self-Study formats:
Live Interactive: Includes live online classes with teacher interaction. We use Zoom for the online classroom environment. Students can actively participate in classes by asking questions, answering questions, and sharing their methods/solutions with the class.
NOTE: Student camera has to be turned on during the live sessions but parents can opt-out if they like. Please check AlphaStar Parent Guide for details.
Self-Study: Includes full AlphaStar course material except for Live Interactive Classes. Great for self-learners who want to finish the course at their own pace.
