How Online Courses Work
Online courses run for 7 weeks. Each week we release pre-recorded lesson videos, quizzes and homework assignments on a key MongoDB subject. For each weekly lesson, expect anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours of lessons delivered in a series of short, 3 to 4 minute videos. You can watch these videos at your own pace over the course of the week, in the order you choose.
Homework is assigned with each weekly lesson and should take anywhere from 2 to 4 hours to complete. Throughout the course, you get can get extra help to study and absorb the materials from the online forums where you can ask questions answered by teaching assistants and your fellow students. At the end of 7 weeks there is a final exam.
During the course, your progress will measured by:
- Quizzes which don't count toward your grade. These quizzes are intended to help you check your own understanding of the course material.
- Weekly assignments which comprise one half of your grade and are due on Tuesdays.
- A final exam/project that makes up the other one half of your grade.

Quizzes are intended to help you check your own understanding. The weekly assignments will comprise one half of your grade and the final exam/project one half of your grade. Most assignments will be due on Tuesdays. Each week we will release new video lectures and a new assignments. Unfortunately, due to the large number of students and in the interest of fairness, late assignments cannot be accepted.
