Study At Your Own Pace!

We’ve created our courses to suit your busy life! The duration of this course is based on a student guide where one 300 – 500 word article is read per day, and the assessment is done on a separate day after the relevant articles have been reviewed. But you can do the course in your own time and at your own pace. If you choose to do two readings per day, it will take you half of the estimated time, four readings per day means doing the course in a quarter of the time etc. We leave that decision up to you! 

In the 5 chapters of this course you'll be covering the following areas:

CHAPTER 1 Introducing Social Media
CHAPTER 2 Guide To Setting Up And Securing Your Facebook Account
CHAPTER 3 How To Use Twitter
CHAPTER 4 How To Use Instagram
CHAPTER 5 How To Use Blogging
