What are Mini Courses?

Mini Courses provide you with 10-20 minute learning modules 
that will help you develop answers to contemporary social, 
political and business problems.

When fully implemented each course will have:
	One or more content modules
	A discussion question
	A quiz or "final exam"

Start with the problem you have or the kind of question you
need answered. Then go to the appropriate course. At present,
the course content will either be delivered to you on this 
site or via a slide show or video on another site.
