Schackne Short Courses is a page devoted to Schackne Online courses delivered
over the internet. These courses are short courses, or workshops; that
is, they are more developed than a simple syllabus, but not
completely developed semester (14-16 week) courses.

     Teachers can distill a customized syllabus or outline from the material
or expand it into a fully functional one-semester high school,
college, or continuing education course.

     Students can utilize the courses for introductory acquisition or for remediation.
    
Schackne Online hopes you find these short courses useful.
