Bootcamps & Academies

Bootcamps and academies are offerings that provide depth of knowledge in a specific, skill-based topic. They help you understand something new, build a skill, develop a competency and demonstrate new knowledge via a deliverable.

Credentials

Credentials are offerings that feature a broad range of topics for specific audiences and industries ranging from K-12 to lifelong learners. These courses help you learn something new around a specific area of focus, and some are even aligned to help you stay licensed within your profession via a continuing education unit.

Masterclasses

Masterclasses are led by experts in their field, and are similar to attending a conference. They help you build topical awareness and enrichment; connect directly with an expert; interact and engage with fellow participants; and network, reflect and apply the topic to your own career and life. A new masterclass launches each month.
