This noncredit course, launched in July 2012, is the result of a pilot project to transform a traditional, face-to-face course into an effective, engaging, and convenient online educational experience. The online format allows the course to be promoted worldwide using modern online marketing techniques, including Google AdWords and social media.  Click on poster to enlarge.
