Courses FAQ

How do the courses work?

OSI courses are live, interactive, and discussion-driven, so enrollment is limited. Register early to secure your spot.

Courses are held on Zoom, and sessions are recorded, so if you miss a session (or want to review), you can watch the recording. You can download Zoom for free here.

Courses vary in length. And some involve homework. Please see the specific course pages for details. 

Course handouts and supplementary materials are delivered via email (please register with an active email address). Participants have access to an exclusive OSI Courses group on Facebook.

What is Zoom? How do I download it?

Zoom is a free video-conferencing app that we use to conduct our courses. You can download it here.

What happens if I miss a session?

Sessions are video recorded, so if you miss a session (or want to review), you can watch the recording. That said, we highly recommend attending each live session so that you can ask questions and engage with your instructor(s) and other participants.

If you do miss a session, we recommend that you watch the recording before attending the next session.
