Q&A - How does it work? When can I access? +

  • Once you sign up, your workshop classroom will be added to your “My Workshops” page.
  • The workshop classroom will contain all materials for that workshop, including the presentation lecture, workshop forum for video submissions and questions, and lecture information for the feedback session.
  • On the first day of the Workshop (noted in each workshop description), the lecture portion of the workshop will be released. This will be a recorded video presentation - watch at your convenience.
  • Now practice with your dog! Students with a working spot will upload a short video of their work to YouTube and share the unlisted link (double check it is not private!) in the classroom homework forum by the date and time listed in the first assignment (Note: it’s important that students with a working spot submit homework video on time or they will forfeit the opportunity for instructor feedback).
  • Got questions? All levels of students may ask general clarification questions relating to the workshop materials in the workshop class forum. The instructor will provide feedback on the working student submissions and answer these questions in the follow up video that will be posted ten days after the original presentation for you to view at your convenience.
  • Each student is automatically given a library pass for one year from the point of enrollment in a course or workshop. When a course or workshop is completed the lectures and videos posted by the instructor will be moved to the "student library" and can be viewed as long as your library pass is active. You can keep your library pass current by enrolling in at least one course a year.
