How does an "Ongoing" course work?

Meets on a weekly schedule, join any week, no need to catch up on previous material
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Automatic payment every Sunday, cancel any time
Great for clubs and for practicing skills

Description

Class Experience

Learners will build social skills by participating in an interactive class.
Learners will enjoy self-assessment with a game of Kahoot in each class.
I've been studying science all my life. My father was a renowned herpetologist. As such, I grew up surrounded by animals, plants, and other life forms. I followed my interests in college by studying biology as well as education. I taught middle school science for 21 years, then worked as the middle school science education specialist for the State Department of Education in Alabama for 6 years. In retirement, I am still actively involved in many scientific communities, and stay engaged with groups such as the North American Association for Environmental Education and the National Science Teachers Association. I am passionate and knowledgeable about the study of life, and about passing on this passion to youngsters. Additionally, I am a published writer and write a weekly column in a local paper as a naturalist.
Please check the classroom for handouts prior to class. Handouts are always optional. For some classes, students will need something to write on and with. I always encourage students to keep a notebook, but it is not required. Colored pencils, washi tape, highlighters, and other fun notetaking enhancements are always fun. :)
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Regarding reproduction: Reproduction is a natural part of biology. I answer questions about reproduction frankly and in a straightforward, scientific manner.

Regarding Kahoot!: Kahoot is a third-party resource. Learners are not required to set up an account to use Kahoot! They can play directly from their device. No secondary device is needed, and the Kahoot! app is not necessary. Kahoot! does not require users to provide their real names, nor does it collect or store personal information.
