How long do the classes last?

What is expected of me each week?
Each week you are required to read through course content and view embedded video clips to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to complete your course Project. You are also required to complete all discussion questions and assignments. Discussion questions help you to process the information that you have read, and help you to integrate that information into the classroom. Consider these questions and post your answers and thoughts to the Discussion Board. All of the required activities will provide the steps necessary for Project completion. The Project is usually due during the last week of the course. All of this may be done from your home computer.
I am a retired teacher, and/or teacher on leave of absence, do I qualify to take the TeacherLine classes?
