A HOW U workshop is a purely online class—you can work at your own pace between the start and end dates. Each lesson is made up of reading material, related articles and a few videos to watch, with an assignment to test yourself on what you’ve learned. You can also chat with the instructor and the other students on the discussion board. There’s no specific time “class” is in session, so you can log on before you go to work, on your lunch break or in the middle of the night. Visit our FAQ page for more information.
