Frequently Asked Questions


What are the benefits to self-paced learning? 

Self-paced learning allows individuals to access course materials at the speed that is right for them. This means individuals can spend more or less time on a topic depending on their learning needs and experience level. Self-paced learning also has great flexibility, allowing individuals to start and stop as they need, and refer back to materials at any time. 

Once I start a course, how long do I have to finish the course? 

When you sign up for a course, you will gain access to a DHIS2 training server for a specified period of time. All DHIS2 access periods provide learners with ample time to complete the course as many of our courses can be completed within 1-2 days. Although access to the DHIS2 training server will expire, you can still access the course and refer back to course materials such as presentations, videos and all other resources available in the course. In the course description, you can find the exact DHIS2 access periods that are currently available. 

How long does it take to complete a course? 

Many of our courses can be completed within 1-2 days, but the pace is up to you! Our self-paced courses give you the flexibility to complete the course at your own pace. Estimated completion times can be found under each of our course descriptions. 

What materials do I need for the course? 

We've got you covered! All the materials you need will be provided within the course. You just need your computer and a Wi-Fi connection.

What is the learning format? 

Our courses include recorded presentations, video demonstrations and hands-on practical exercises that give you a chance to apply what you're learning to an actual DHIS2 training server with sample data.

Can I access the course from my phone? 

Yes, Teachable offers an iOS app for Apple devices (currently available for iPhone and iPod Touch devices). Once the app is installed, you can sign into your account on the app and access all the course content on your phone. Your course progress is automatically synced between the app and your web-based Teachable account so you can easily pick up right where you left off.

Are there graded tests or assessments? 

Throughout the course, we offer a mix of ungraded and graded knowledge check questions to help you to assess your learning of key topics as you progress through the course. In addition, some sections include graded, hands-on practical exercises that give you a chance to apply what you’re learning to an actual DHIS2 training server. In the course, you will learn all the critical concepts, content and tools in order to successfully complete the exercises and earn your certificate. 

Do I need access to a DHIS2 server? 

We provide access to a DHIS2 training server so you can apply the concepts and features you learn in the course in a safe environment with sample data. 

What is the best browser to use? 

We recommend Google Chrome for your browser, as it is the best browser for the Teachable platform and the DHIS2 training server.
