More Information
What's on Our Mind?

 

The Details:

Simple, Functional Technology (Designed with Technophobes in Mind!)

Kindle

All students will receive a Kindle.  For US students, your content will come from the Kindle store and from links sent to you to download material from our Dropbox account.  Non-US students will receive their Kindle fully loaded with all content.

WhatsApp

The Kindle will come with WhatsApp web installed, which you will need to link to a mobile phone.  WhatsApp has over 1 billion users and end-to-end encryption. The daily threaded questions and content links will be sent through WhatsApp, so you’re engaged in both reading & discussion as the week progresses. Each week will be structured as a separate discussion group, so you can always go back and review all the content.

Skype

The Kindle will also come with Skype installed.  Skype audio discussion is a proven platform on both desktop and mobile phones, with hundreds of millions of users worldwide.  Using the audio rather than the video format has been shown to be more stable.

Instant Availability

Each Skype session is recorded and is available on the WhatsApp class discussion within minutes, so if you miss a class, you can catch up no matter where you are.

The entire technology ecosystem has been designed so you can access the content from no matter where you are on your mobile phone, Kindle, or computer.  We are using platforms with hundreds of millions of daily users, ensuring the most stable, bug-free systems.

Books

All books come on the Kindle that you receive from the program.  There should be no additional books to buy.

Cost

The cost for the Fellowship Programs is $5,500.00 USD, payable in five monthly installments.  Payment will be quickest and easiest through Paypal, although other methods may be arranged.

Refund Policy

Participants who withdraw within 1 week of any scheduled payment will be refunded that payment only. Fellowship Candidates who fail to maintain an average grade of high pass or better for two consecutive months will be dismissed without refund.
