A Self-Paced Online Course
If you’d like to start right in, please go to Lesson 1.
How to Use this Course
Each lesson will include the lesson itself, links to outside resources, a roundup of links at the end of each lesson, and most lessons will have an activity, too. Any links embedded in a lesson will also be in the links list at the end of the lesson for you to click through after you’ve finished reading, if that’s easier for you to do. The activities are all optional. If you wish to listen instead of read, check your smartphone or tablet for the built-in Accessibility settings. Many laptops and mobile devices provide a Text-to-Speech feature to have your device read to you.
Expectations & Communication
There are volunteers available to answer your questions in the comments of this online course. If you’re looking for something you can’t find in this course, you can reach out to a Buy Nothing Librarian with your question. There are two binding contracts provided for all interactions among our community participants. The Community Commitment is specifically for the BuyNothingapp. The Community Agreement, which was created by the Equity Team, is for all other Buy Nothing communities. We recommend you read both of them, but please be sure to familiarize yourself with at least one of them to guide your connections during this course.
