The content available in HeatSpring courses is self-serve, so students can access all of the course materials as soon as they enroll and for at least 1 full year after the session ends. We offer two main types of courses at HeatSpring and they both have different levels of instructor interaction.
All HeatSpring courses are contiuously updated by the expert instructor as needed. After enrolling students receive all future updates to the course for free. After your year of access expires, you can optionally join as a HeatSpring member to extend your access to updated content by the expert.
Premium Multi-week Courses
Our premium multi-week courses are created and led by expert instructors. In these courses, instructors utilize discussion boards to interact with students. Instructors are active in their courses during the scheduled session dates, or upon enrollment for our rolling admissions courses. It varies by instructor and by course but typically instructors check in between daily and weekly to check quiz results or project work, review and respond to discussion board questions and read survey responses.
Short courses are built by expert instructors and are intended to be self-serve for students. Instructors are involved to update content and review surveys, but generally do not interact with students.
