7. Can I share the course material with others who are not enrolled in the course? 

No. You will have to maintain the integrity of your learning, and not share the material with anyone who is not part of your course. The materials will also not be shared on any social media. Doing so will be a breach of IPR clauses. 

ASSIGNMENTS

SPECIAL NEEDS

11. Currently I am dealing with a specific mental health condition/issue. Is it advisable for me to join the course/s?

No. These courses are not ‘therapy’ though some of them teach about therapy and healing. You should seek your therapist/doctor’s advice before joining. 

 

12. I have some special needs, but they do not come in the way of my learning or interactions. Can I join?

Yes. Surely you can join. It would be advisable, however, if you feel it right, to inform your teacher/facilitator about your needs. That will ensure support and inclusive strategy as necessary.
