Frequently Asked Questions
How long does it take to complete a Learning Unit?
The completion length of a Learning Unit varies between an hour and an hour and a half. We provided an idea of how long the different chapters take by providing an amount (XX min) on the lower right corner of every startpage in each Learning Unit.
Do I need to complete the Learning Units in a specific order?
No, the choice is completely up to you - although we suggest you start with the first one.
What background knowledge do I need?
You need little to no background knowledge to go through the Learning Units. Our authors tried to provide as much information as possible in order to make the topics most comprehensible - even for those who have little to no experience with the corresponding topics.
Where do I get further information on the current Learning Unit?
On the left you will find a menu button. There you can expand a series of tiles which provide information on the topics, the authors, further reading suggestions, references and further information.
