A truly exciting aspect of Gale Courses is that the instructors are all experts in their field, and the course content is accessible for beginners as well as more advanced students. Plus, you can learn at your own pace and have the opportunity for live interaction; you'll feel like you're having a conversation with your instructor.
Although they're not graded, the assignments enhance your understanding of course content, and there are regular quizzes. You can take the quizzes multiple times to be sure you know what's been presented in each session. Courses end with a final exam, and you receive a certificate of completion when you pass.
