Frequently Asked Questions

What is an online course?

This simply means a course that is run via computer technology, rather than in-person, in a classroom.  It is still a ‘live’ and ‘real-time’ course where people assemble and Jonathan teaches, answers questions and facilitates discussion.

Do I need any special equipment?

You need a computer with a camera and microphone, plus a connection to the Internet.

What if I miss a Live session or Question and Answer Period?

Video instruction sessions and the Q&A will be recorded.  The recordings will be available for you within a week of the original meeting.  You may also ask questions online in the special Telegram group that will be established, or write to Jonathan privately.

What are the dates and times for the sessions?

Our sessions begin on Tuesday November 10, 2020 at 8PM U.S. Eastern Standard Time (7 Central, 6 Mountain, 5 Pacific). They occur once every two weeks after that for a year; in other words, there will be 26 sessions over a one-year period.

If I can’t attend each live session, what do I do?

You can “attend” an occasional session by watching the video recording. However, the commitment that you’re making is to be at all sessions ‘live’ for the year.  If you need to miss one due to a pre-planned vacation, rapid onset health crisis or family emergency, that will be okay.  No more than five of the 52 live sessions, however, can be missed during the year. If you miss more than that, you will be dismissed from the course without refund.

If I need more support, are you available for individual sessions?

Yes, individual hour-long sessions are available via a different, encrypted, videoconference platform. Jonathan is offering a 20% discount on his individual student session price of $100, for all members of this class. (So the price per session is $80 U.S.) Small group sessions are also available with groups of 2 to 4 people for $80 for the hour (split by the number of people in the group.

Do I have to finish the course in a certain time period?

The whole learning community will be moving through the course in a one-year period, so ‘yes’ you are required to move along with us at the group’s pace.

What about confidentiality?

Confidentiality will be maintained at all times. Question and Answer sessions, and group interactions via email or on a Group Meeting technology like Telegram will be strictly confidential.  This means that you may not share the experience of another course member, outside of the course, with anyone not taking the course.  We’re not recording last names during Question and Answer sessions, so that confidentiality is maintained.

Do I need strong internet skills to do this course?

No, the teacher doesn’t have strong Internet skills, so the students won’t need them either!

Does the course require specific knowledge or experience?

No. It may be helpful to have read some background material but, none is required.
