9. Setting a schedule

All courses at SPIDER are self-paced. In most cases, you have one school year to finish a course, however, there is no schedule and no hard deadlines.

Typically, students start at the beginning of a course, then work through the units in order. There are some exceptions, which you can discuss with your teacher.

In order for you to progress through each course in a timely manner, you will need to make use of the individual progress block. You should set this up as soon as you begin a course. First determine when you plan to finish the course. Most students will take one semester, about five months, to complete a course, though students can complete a course in as little as ten weeks. In order to receive feedback from your teacher, you cannot complete a course faster than that.

Look at the information below regarding the individual progress block. This will help you to set a realistic pace and to see how well you are staying on track.
