About Our Diploma Prep Courses
Our courses are offered in three different formats: in the classroom, livestreamed, and on demand. For all formats, there is teacher lead instruction that will cover the curriculum through notes and diploma exam style questions, including guidelines and test taking strategies. The course materials students receive contain notes and practice questions.
The Classroom format is the best way to experience the prep; it is easier to communicate with the students to clarify issues and to give help. Being part of the live experience is more stimulating and engaging, and students benefit from the structured format. There is time for one-on-one help before and during class. There will also be teachers available after class on Saturday and Sunday evenings in dedicated tutorial rooms at the University of Calgary.
The Online/Livestreamed format is run at a scheduled time and has live instruction and interaction throughout. Just like the classroom format, there is time for one-on-one help during the breaks, and before and after class. The course materials will be viewable online and or can be printed. Students who take this option are able to attend the tutorial rooms on Saturday and Sunday evenings.
The On Demand format is pre-recorded instruction viewable anytime during the specified five-day period. The videos are between 9 and 10.5 hours in length. The course materials at this time are only viewable online and cannot be printed or downloaded. The On Demand videos can be paused/stopped but not forwarded or reversed. Students taking this option don’t have access to the tutorial rooms.
