Get a World Institute Account
Click Create An Account. Fill out the forms. Having an account will make future browsing and participating easier and doesn't bind you to anything. But the system needs to know you are a real person and so it needs your email, and will send you a verification message to activate the account. If you can't find it, try your junk folder... If you continue to have a problem, contact us.
The Content of Courses
Each course has students from around the world so content is available at all hours. Content typically includes some combination of video, text, and discussion in forums.
Enroll in a Course
Once you are logged in to your account, from the full curriculum click on any course being given in the current session to see its top page. There should be a link to enroll right under the faculty person's name. If not, let us know. You can enroll as a full fee participating student, a low income participating student, or an observer only able to see content. For details, see Enrolling in Courses.
Take a Course
Once you have enrolled in a course, when the session for it begins you can participate by clicking on its various contents, using its forums, posting in response to its assignments, using blogs, etc. Courses have materials that faculty assume all students will access - plus other optional materials and forums, glossaries, etc. You use the offerings and participate however much you choose.
