The courses in the RZIM Academy are designed so that the total commitment per week can be less than 2 hours each week. Lectures are around thirty minutes each, and most weeks include only two lectures. Full participation would also include engaging in the class discussion boards, submitting results from the practical assignments (5 total), and giving feedback to fellow students on their work. We strongly encourage students to engage in the learning community, because we know that you’ll get more out of the course if you do. But to complete the minimum can take as little as 1-2 hours per week.
