Yes, join The Academy! We've put a lot of work into developing our courses, whether you're a beginner, intermediate level user or have advanced skills...

Hey John, Whoops, glitch in The Matrix! We're actually in the process of making this course and all of the other Academy courses evergreen so they are available on-demand and not week-by-week. The Advanced course was planned to go live today after already being a week later, but due to some bugs the content isn't ready, so I do apologize for the confusion. I'm anticipating the course will be all ready to go by next Thursday. Sorry for any inconvenience, but it does mean that you'll be able to go through the whole course in your own time without any time constraints or limitations. Let me know if you have any further questions, otherwise I hope you enjoy the course! This is the first time we're running the Advanced course and would love any feedback. Cheers, Rae (Academy Facilitator)

Hi John, Thanks for your feedback. We're actually in the process of reviewing The Academy at the moment, particularly as we are transitioning courses to make them "evergreen", i.e. allow students to enroll and take courses when they want instead of week-by-week. As a result, there are some issues with dates at the moment, which we will be fixing soon. So for now, ignore the dates as all courses will be available on-demand within the next two-three weeks. Thanks for your patience as we make improvements to The Academy! We're making improvements all the time, big and small, and appreciate your feedback. Cheers, Rae (Academy facilitator)

Hi Alex, Our WordPress Multisite Masterclass course recently closed after running for 10 weeks. This course started on November 10 and finished on January 21. Each of the courses in The Academy starts and ends on specific dates, with units becoming each week for students to complete. Once you are enrolled in a course, you can view the units as they become available, but you must complete the course content by the final date of the course to receive your certification. Units that you complete are then available for you to view after the course is over, but you won't be able to view any unit you haven't finished. We've designed The Academy this way as we have weekly discussions about the course content as well as final assignments that our course instructors personally check and grade. So for now, you've missed completing this course but the next round is currently open for enrollments and I'd encourage you to join! It's a great course, but it does take time to read through the content and complete the final assignment. Cheers, Rae (Academy Facilitator)
Raelene Morey commented on Course closed ahead of time. Now I can't send in my final assigement.Jan 24, 2017
Hi PlusMuchMore, Sorry to see you were stressed out getting your assignment completed in time! Though it's great to see you took it so seriously. It looks like the time settings for the end of this course were a day out unlike other courses, and I've fixed this so it won't happen again. Just so you know, we would always accept assignment submissions later (I probably shouldn't have written that :). We recognize that students put a hell of a lot of work into their assignments and often life (and bugs!) get in the way. In future, you can always post here in the forums or email us if you've missed a submission deadline or need an extension, and we can submit your assignments manually. We're in the process of marking assignments for this course at the moment, which does take time, but plan to send out grades and certificates next week. Thanks for taking part in this course, and hope to see you in another Academy course again soon! Cheers, Rae (Academy Facilitator)
Raelene Morey commented on How to contact my Instructor Rachel McCollin?Jan 24, 2017
Hi Suhartono, I hope you enjoyed the Intermediate course that just finished at The Academy last week. Seems like you're very eager to get your grade back :) Since the course only just ended and Rachel needs time to mark assignments (and not on weekends!), it's likely you'll receive your grade either next week or the week after. Unlike other online courses, ours include quite comprehensive final assignments which are manually graded by our course instructors so you can get personal feedback on your work. This does take time, so we appreciate your patience, but it does mean you'll get expert feedback that's hard to get elsewhere. Hope to see you soon in another Academy course! Cheers, Rae (Facilitator, The Academy)
Raelene Morey commented on Can't submit my assignment for Beginning Developers courseDec 22, 2016
Hi Lorie, The course closed today so you just missed out on handing it in, but don't panic! If you email your assignment as an attachment to me at [email protected], I can manually upload it to your student account. While we do have deadlines for courses, we don't want students who work hard on their assignments to miss out on being graded! A few students miss the deadlines so I upload a few manually after every course :) FYI courses finish at 12.01am on the date specified. I'll make some changes to future courses to make this clearer. Hope you enjoyed the course! Cheers, Rae (Academy Facilitator)
