What is the cost of an online course?
MongoDB University courses are completely free.
What do I need to take a course?
You will need access to a computer with: Operating System: Mac OS X 10.7+ 64-bit, Ubuntu 14.04+ 64-bit, or Windows 8+ (64-bit) Web Browser: Firefox 39.0+ or Chrome 43+ (Internet Explorer is currently not supported)
Do I need to be available during a certain hour of the day to watch course videos?
No. The course is self-paced and will be broken down into short pre-recorded video segments with periodic assessments to check on your progress.
What do I receive for taking this course?
You will receive a final grade but the grade won't be on your proof of completion. To receive a proof of completion, you will need to achieve 65% on graded material. There are three different types of assessments within the course: quizzes, labs, and a final exam. Quizzes don't count toward your grade but will help you check your understanding. The labs will comprise one half of your grade and the final exam/project one half of your grade. Unfortunately, due to a large number of students and in the interest of fairness, late assignments cannot be accepted.
Will I be able to get help?
For any questions about the material or our training programs, you can contact our team directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your grade for the course will depend on your performance on labs and a final exam. You will receive a proof of completion if you achieve a grade of 65% or better.
