    • the course materials are sent out to all participants before each class, and they contain the main content covered in each class
    • an attendance register is kept, and those who miss a class, can make these up when the next course runs
    • all enrollees of the on-line course can repeat the course in its entirety in the course that immediately follows the one they just took, at no extra charge.
