If you scan the Wilmette institute’s list of courses, you will notice that several are shorter than the three-month (thirteen weeks) courses we have been offering. We are experimenting with shorter courses, which we will probably standardize at seven weeks. Such courses will cover about two-thirds as much material in seven weeks as we previously covered in thirteen weeks. The shorter courses, we hope, will attract more learners, and, as a bonus, they will be cheaper (probably $75, rather than $150). The shorter format will also allow us to create more basic courses, for which our larger audience is asking, and they will make it possible for faculty (who often have busy schedules) to offer more courses during the year. But we will also be able to accommodate learners interested in more advanced courses than in the past.
