What’s instructor-led vs self-paced?

Instructor-supported courses use “blended learning” a bit like an independent study. There’s online discussions to ask questions and communicate with your instructor and others in the course. In addition, everyone is invited to participate in weekly, live, online instructor coaching sessions to get greater insight.

Self-study gives you the same lessons, quizzes, exams, and an online discussion forum, AND on-demand videos from recent instructor coaching sessions. However; there is no instructor involved (you will have everything you need in the course), so self-study courses often take longer to complete.
