Getting started with Pathstream
Review Pathstream’s Code of Conduct and Policies.
Our goal is to help all students have a productive learning experience. Review Pathstream’s Code of Conduct and Policies so you know what to expect. If you have any questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Review the digital skills that will be necessary within your program.
During your Pathstream program, you’ll be required to navigate your web browser and common online applications such as Google Workspace, Zoom, Google Calendar, and more. To help you, we’ve compiled a list of practical digital skills and divided them into three categories: Important, Recommended, and Helpful Skills.
At any point during your Pathstream journey you may return to this resources hub to refresh your digital skill set.
Develop a plan to complete the courses.
There are no live lectures or specific times you need to log on, so you can create a learning schedule and plan that works best for you!
You will need approximately 10-15 hours per week to get through all of the lessons and assignments. Students who have successfully completed these programs in the past recommend creating a schedule in advance, blocking time to complete coursework each week, and letting people in your life know that you’re enrolled in this program so they can support you.
What technology/equipment do I need?
You’ll need a Windows or Mac computer/laptop and a stable internet connection.
While you can complete the lessons on most devices (including phones and tablets) labs and projects require a Windows or Mac laptop/desktop computer. For that reason you are not able to complete the course with only a phone, iPad/tablet, Chromebook, or Linux machine.
Do I need to buy textbooks?
No textbooks needed! All your coursework will be online.
Do I need to do anything to prepare?
In the next few days, we’ll send suggestions for ways you can get started. In the meantime, check out our blog for more information.
