TIP: Add To Calendar
Depending on your course, you will see a section titled "Schedule" at the top of your toolkit. There is an option to add the course dates to your calendar.
You can choose which calendar works best for you! This will help tremendously in creating a schedule that works for you and keeping up with course content.
Underneath your Toolkit, you have a comprehensive description of your course. Click “Read More”
This description will always be available throughout the semester. It provides an overview of what you will be learning and what you should take away at the end.
Then, right under the course description, you will find a chapter called “Orientation”
Each section offers informative videos to help you start your journey as an Outlier student. We recommend completing this Orientation chapter before beginning your first chapter.
