"I'm nervous because I'm not very good with computers..."
We've never had a student decide that the course was not a good fit because it was too difficult to handle from a technical perspective, regardless of age, previous computer experience, or language.
"I'm nervous because I live at the top of a mountain and my cell-phone connection is my only access to the internet..."
This one can be more difficult. You’ll be either streaming or downloading 2-hour video files, so we’ve found it to be most efficient if you have access to a solid high-bandwidth connection. You can still take the course if you don’t have that, but it may mean overnight downloads, or going someplace with a faster connection to download, then watching later at home.
We've had students who are very dedicated to the course who've made this work, but it's nice to have a realistic expectation from the beginning so you know what to expect.
"I thank you Leslie and Amy for bringing this material into the world and making it available to online students.
My greatest fear was to have troubles with the internet, but all your material was so well prepared and organized, there was no problem at all.
I appreciated very much the individual and careful homework tutoring, thank you very much Lydia!
I took everything into my teaching. Maybe to me most important ideas of all: many explanations about anatomic representations of the yogic picture-language (e.g. what is kundalini, what is chanting good for, etc)."
