How MasterClass works:
MasterClass is an immersive online experience. The curriculum for each MasterClass is designed by the instructor. Each class includes extensive pre-recorded video content, a class workbook, interactive assignments, and community activities. The videos are viewable at any time, and they can be paused, fast-forwarded, and re-watched as many times as you’d like. In addition, many students utilize the class discussions below each video to share their thoughts, upload their performances, and provide feedback on others’ work.
Classes range anywhere from 2-5 hours and each class is made up of several lessons that range from 5-25 minutes in length – some classes may have longer lessons. You can watch and re-watch at any time.
- Each course has a downloadable PDF workbook to supplement the videos
- Get feedback from fellow students in the MasterClass student groups that you can use to exchange feedback and discuss the lessons.
- Complete classes at your own pace. If you purchased access to a specific course, your access is unlimited. If you have an All-Access pass, your access continues until you cancel.
- Download videos for offline viewing with the iOS app.
