You’d like to sign up for a course at Scuola Holden but you’ve just moved to Rio de Janeiro?
You’re into writing but you can only do it in the middle of the night? No problems at all! Writing courses Classi-fy are online. You can do them wherever you are and do your homework and watch lessons whenever you want, without having to give up doing other things or your passions.
How do they work?
Classes are limited. There can be up to 20 people in each of the groups. Courses last 3 months and students have to keep to a weekly schedule of appointments. There may be video lessons with a teacher to attend or booklets to download and read. And there are deadlines to do and share homework, so students can read their classmates’ posts, have a chance to make their own comments and get feedback on what they’ve written. That’s a chance to “meet up” in the forum Classi-fy and talk about classes (alright, we know you’re not just going to be talking about that but that’s part of the fun).
Every now and then, teachers will post videos where they’ll be looking into the works of all of the class publicly but students will receive their personal evaluations privately too.
Sometimes students will also get a chance to peek into Scuola Holden to see what’s going on or, better yet, we’ll be the ones to organize “video incursions” into courses Classi-fy. But we don’t want to add anything else now or we’ll spoil the surprise.
What happens at the end of the course?
The whole class will come over to Turin to spend a day at the school. Students will visit Caserma Cavalli, get to know each other (imagine what it’s going to feel like to finally meet the other students in person!), attend the teachers’ last lesson, read their final works and get their diploma. After all that, we want to see everybody partying in Borgo Dora!
Here are all of the upcoming courses Classi-fy (at the moment they’re only in Italian).
And remember, courses Classi-fy can also be given as a present. The person who receives a Classi-fy Gift Box will have a year to choose the online course that suits them the best. Click here to find out how it works.
