The virtual X428 curriculum and learning objectives are very similar to our face-to-face courses without the hiking time. The virtual course is scheduled to be about 5 or 6 hours of “in class” work for five days per week. Each day will be set up so that 80+% of the time is self-paced by the student. We have tentatively planned about 30 minutes each day for synchronous group Q&A via Zoom and students can schedule one-on-one Zoom discussion/mentoring sessions with faculty members and/or associate instructors. To give students more flexibility we will post the following week’s material on Saturday morning. Students who want to get a head start on the material or spread it out over more days with fewer hours can.
