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

I have over twenty years of experience working with and teaching students.  I have a bachelor's degree in both History and Economics.  My master's degree is in Higher Education.  I also have a Juris Doctorate in Law.  Most importantly, I have a passion for teaching, history in particular!  
Each week, a homework assignment will be posted in the Outschool classroom.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We will use various external resources to make the classroom more interactive such as Nearpod, Kahoot, and Gimkit.  Learners will access these resources during class via a provided link in the chatbox.  They do not need an account and will only enter a first name or nickname to access the resource during class only.
