FAQ

  • Is this a full course with all the offerings of a standard River Academy Course?

    No. This is a free course that has been designed to show you what River Academy courses look like. It has basic video lessons with some resources and an easy quiz assessment. Our 101, 201 and Masterclasses are more rigorous than this free course and have more extensive classes and resources. In saying that, this free introductory course is really great and we know you will learn some really interesting things about Science Communications by enrolling.

  • Do I have to pay anything to enrol in this course?

    No. It's 100% free.

  • Will I receive a digital badge after completing this course?

    Yes, you sure will. Within 48 hours of completing the quiz with a 100% pass mark, you will be emailed the details of your shiny new digital badge.
