FAQ

With more than 30 courses across multiple mastery pathways, you may be wondering where to start!

These are some of the most frequently asked questions about our individual courses to help you dive into your fearless learning journey.

Are there any prerequisites?

There are no firm prerequisites for any individual course, although some are certainly more advanced than others. See our suggestions for each course for more information on skill level appropriateness. 

Do I need to start with a certain course?

You decide where you’d like to start! Based on your interests, experience, and goals you choose which courses you’d like to explore and in what order. You are able to determine your own learning pathway to create your own custom experience. 

How long will a course take me?

Each of our courses include 20+ hours of learning content (including optional extensions as part of our Global Goals Challenges), but every learner is unique! If you move faster or slower through a course, that’s okay. Take your time and explore at your own pace. 

I'm new to all of this. What's a good course to start with?

If you’re really want a course recommendation, some of our most popular courses include Video Game Design with MakeCode Arcade, 3D Design, Storytelling with Minecraft, Coding with Scratch, and Coding with Python. 

Do I need to complete all of the courses in a mastery pathway?

Nope! You decide which courses you’d like to explore. Our mastery pathways are here to help guide you if you find some courses that really speak to you. If you complete 3+ courses in a mastery pathway, you will earn the trophy for that pathway. However, you still earn medals for each individual course you complete.
