You can definitely pick and choose sections of the course to complete in your own time. We do advise that you do the assessments section (Finding out about your individual brain) first. The course can be done over a few days or a few weeks.
No, there is a workbook that comes with the course as well as two assessments. The assessments will evaluate the learners hemispheric dominance and learning preferences. The workbook has a number of practical examples that the learner can do as they follow the video content.
Any school learners as well as parents

This is a brand new online course!

Nikki has however been teaching this course to school learners for over a decade. It is now accessible to so many more learners. The feedback from the course has always been extremely positive and in some cases really changed the way learners approach their studying.

Parents can also be assured that study skills can be learnt and these tools will help learners engage both sides of their brains, understand the bigger picture of each topic they study, manage test/exam planning and anxiety and have fun with colourful notes and mind maps.
