CSDL classes are different from traditional classrooms. Students are independent learners, and they are guided by trained course facilitator. Success in these courses requires a great level of organization, self-motivation, and time management. It is important you set up your own study schedule and keep up with all the assignments and deadlines. If you are not sure whether this format is right for you, please feel free to contact us to schedule an appointment with one of our course facilitator to see whether this format meets your personal needs and your learning style.
How do I start my class?
You must attend an orientation before you start your class(s). During that time, your course facilitator will provide you with course information, course outline, and course expectations. You are required to start immediately upon completing your orientation.
