WHAT MAKES OUR ONLINE COURSES UNIQUE:
- Course sizes are limited.
You won't have 5,000 classmates. This course's enrollment is capped at 24 participants.
- Frequent interaction with the instructor.
You aren't expected to work through the material alone. Instructors will answer questions and interact with students on the discussion board and through weekly video meetings.

Stanford Continuing Studies courses attract thoughtful and engaged students who take courses for the love of learning. Students in each course will exchange ideas with one another through easy-to-use message boards as well as optional weekly real-time video conferences.
- Direct feedback from the instructor.
Instructors will review and offer feedback on assignment submissions. Students are not required to turn in assignments, but for those who do, their work is graded by the instructor.
- Courses offer the flexibility to participate on your own schedule.
Course work is completed on a weekly basis when you have the time. You can log in and participate in the class whenever it's convenient for you. If you can’t attend the weekly video meetings, the sessions are always recorded for you and your instructor is just an email away.
- This course is offered through Stanford Continuing Studies.
