We've packaged a set of solutions to common tech issues into 90-minute interactive online courses. These bite-sized tutorials help build an understanding of core concepts and start accomplishing your goals during the session. Most people take courses one-on-one, but you can take them with your partner or team, too.
Unlike the myriad YouTube videos or paid courses that stream or download, you can stop and ask questions at any time. Instead of a one size fits all program, we start with foundational knowledge, then connect with your specific concerns. This real-world approach means learning by doing, so you can feel progress by the end of the session.
Appropriate for all skill levels, these courses cover both concepts and specifics. Each session is structured for Q+A and assistance via screen sharing along the way, ensuring the course is tailored to your setup and needs. If you need more time after the 90-minute session, you can always book a follow-up.
How it works
Book one of our online tech courses today, and choose a preferred time(s) for your 90-minute appointment. After you sign up, we will contact you to confirm scheduling along with a meeting link.
Preparation: Bring your questions! We prefer to teach using real-world examples on your computer, so we recommend taking the session on a computer you typically use, with the option to screen share. A hand-written notepad is also recommended.
Each course comes with a print-friendly reference sheet — a useful summary of core concepts.
