“How do I get started?”
That is easily the top question we receive, and one that we have been slow to address comprehensively — but consistency and integration of components, clarity of purpose and offerings, and continuing evaluation of the end-user experience will be key.
In the mean time, we have taken a small but (we hope!) useful step toward quickly expressing who we are, what we do, and how a student can join and learn.
The page is called Getting Started and is linked from our homepage and from the website header. There are a lot of things the page is not — it relies more on text (our favorite!) than visuals, for instance. In creating this page, we focused on being clear, concise, and complete. A couple short video clips are included.
Your feedback is most welcome. Have we succeeded in our goals or are the steps to getting started still too much of a mystery? Leave a comment below or send us a message.
